Summary: Awesome product. I love the Souls series and I wanted this for too long. Nothing to complain about the game and other stuff, except the statue accesories. The statue itself is perfect, very detailed and tall, but the swords are very cheap plastic and it came a little curve at the grip. The swords don't look real and compared to the statue looks like they don't come together.
Great game on its own, but not as good as Demons/Dark Souls

Summary: Only real complaints I have this game is that parry/kick is a bit more difficult to pull off and the game world isn't as open world-ed like Dark Souls or lacks the atmosphere of Demons Souls. Other than that, it's a good game.
The game runs smoothly but the sound problem is annoying.

Summary: The game seemed fairly new but there was a small scratch. I thought nothing of it but it later served as a problem making the sound glitch out. The game runs smoothly but the sound problem is annoying.
A solid game just not as great as it's predecessor.

Summary: I really enjoyed this game but that being said it wasn't without it's share of disappointments. The boss fights were entirely to easy when compared to the original and the weapon upgrade system just wasn't that great and at times confusing. Thank goodness for wikis. The replay value wasn't on par with the original either. I had over 500 hours in the original and I have yet to play through this one again.
Summary: Exactly what I imagined it to be: a second installment of Dark Souls one. The friend connectivity issues I experienced in DS one are fixed through a ring that allows multi-channel connections. (People with the same option selected on the ring have prioritized connectivity). The bonfire transport feature from the start (not like in DS one where you acquired it from the princess) is also nice and saves countless hours of retracing your steps.
Summary: Dark Souls 2 is the toughest challenge of 2014 for console gamers. In a time where most game designers assist the player as much as they can so they can feel heroic, the Dark Souls series does everything it can to murder you. Although there are many improvements over Dark Souls, this game feels unpolished. Story: 8/10 In a dark medieval world, you die and your cursed soul is compelled to journey to the ruins of Drangleic Castle.
Dark Souls 1 is my current favorite game of all time.

Summary: I love Dark Souls 1. It has it's flaws, but I have said for a couple years that it's my favorite game. I was psyched about DS2. After beating it 5 times and farming for every item in the game, though, I am left a bit disappointed. Sure, it's a fantastic game, and highly recommended! But I can't give it five stars. I can't because it's not as good as it's predecessor. It's too bright, too easy, and too forgiving.
Summary: Loved the game! Good bosses! Good levels (not as fun as dark souls)! Enemies are fun! Only two general complains: The first is lots of the levels don't have railings, so it's very easy to fall off (which kinda sucks when you're dealing with like four enemies at once). The second is the invasions from other players. Very annoying, especially when you're deep in a level and SUPRISE.... Invaded.
