Dark Souls 2

ActionTrip
19 March 2014
  • Conclusion: Look, just stop asking questions. Buy the game, grab a sword and start dying.
  • Pros: Terrific atmosphere, charmingly torturous gameplay mechanics will make you swear and love it at the same time, challenging and action-packed;
  • Cons: Similarly to Dark Souls 1, some sections are visually inferior to what's on offer in this day and age.

Dark Souls: Artorias of the Abyss

Total Xbox
9 November 2012
  • Excerpt: A whole year after Dark Souls launched, this downloadable add-on is here — and given the game’s extreme challenge and depth, that makes sense. Rest assured, Artorias of the Abyss is strictly for experienced players: merely accessing the new area requires you complete roughly 30% of the main game and use your favorite wiki to figure out how to get there.
  • Pros: + Awesome new characters, gear, and spells., + Lore and tone fit perfectly with the rest of the game.
  • Cons: ? Why troll players who beat the final dragon boss with a ring that cripples them?

  • Excerpt: You are going to die. I'm sure other Dark Souls reviews have begun like that – hell, the game box tells you to prepare to die – but it simply cannot be stated enough. This game does everything within its power to kill you, and kill you as often and as quickly as possible. Something on the order of the fourth or fifth lesson in the game's tutorial is being surprised by a boss-level monster that can kill you very quickly. Not a one-hit kill, but often within two.

Review: Dark Souls

New Gamer Nation
5 January 2012
  • Conclusion: Dark Souls is probably one of the best games of 2011. Its dark corridors holds plenty of mystery, dangers, and treasure to keep you playing the game for a long time to come. It will challenge you and even try your patience, but if you stay strong you will be rewarded for your efforts. We highly recommend this game to anyone looking for an amazing RPG experience.

Bloody RPG gives new meaning to hardcore game difficulty.

Common Sense Media
28 December 2011
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Dark Souls is a violent and bloody action role-playing game that is designed to be extremely difficult, even for veteran gamers. Players use melee weapons and magic in their fight against human and fantasy creatures. Blood flies through the air and stains the ground, and one female enemy nearly reveals her exposed bosoms, which are covered only by hair.

20 December 2011
  • Excerpt: I'll ask you to bear with me over the course of this review, as Dark Souls on the Xbox 360 is one of the hardest games I've ever had the chance to play, or in this case, review. Dark Souls, the semi-sequel to the PS3 exclusive and Game of the Year winner Demon's Souls, is the kind of game that needs no introduction; people have been talking in hushed tones for months about just how hard it would be, their voices sounding more like they were discussing what it would be...

Dark Souls

Games Asylum
20 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Hand holding. From fellow soldiers yelling what buildings to blow up to breadcrumb trails of collectables in platformers, the majority of games proverbially hold gamers’ hands even if we don’t realise it. This is where From Software’s Dark Souls is different from most – after a brief run down of the controls you’re dropped into a large, open world and left to figure things out for yourself.
