Summary: this game has so many wonderous possiblities, but just fails to live up to it's own potential.........the first game had a unique presonality, but instead of expanding on that ......from software decicided to go in some obscure direction, leaving us all to wonder why ?
Summary: I have played a multitude of XBOX and XBOX 360 RPGs. Thousands of hours. I hated Dark Souls 1 and kept starting and stopping it because I refused to look at the walk-throughs for advice and wanted to play on my own, so I just died too much.
Summary: First of all, I picked this game up, midnight launch at Gamestop, because I did not want to wait for UPS to get to me at five in the afternoon. I live in the city, but I guess its there route? I love amazon, but I didn't want to lose all that time I could be playing on waiting.
Summary: I was hooked on DS1 and invested over 300 hours into it, so my expectations for the sequel were high. Granted, I have only had the game since yesterday and have only played it for a few hours, but right from the get go I was disappointed.
Summary: I absolutely loved DS1, but DS2 killed it for me, the loss of maximum health when undead is what did it for me, this mechanic takes the whole " you died you better go back and try again" out of the game and basically wants you to get it right the first time.
Summary: I have played and compleated all previous games of this series. But this is a step to far for me in fact it's become boring yes I accept I am going to die many many times but this is ridiculous in fact boring.
