About
20 March 2015
  • Summary: Dark Souls is a complex and challenging action RPG that is a throwback to oldschool gaming before everything became easier and dumbed-down. It is difficult - hard as Hell, actually - and many important mechanics of the game are left as vague and mysterious as possible for as long as possible.

Dark Souls 2: Crown of the Sunken King DLC Review

  • Summary: From Software could have taken the lazy route and delivered more of the same, but instead they have really listened, and have strived to give us something that steps away from the established Dark souls 2 template.

  • Summary: From Software's Souls games have been near the top of my games-I-should-play list for quite a while. I can't recall ever talking with someone who's spent time with Demon's Souls , Dark Souls , or Dark Souls II without hearing them gush over the series, and though the games have a reputation for...
  • Pros: Frightening, imaginative monsters, Skill-based combat that rewards patience
  • Cons: A leveling-up system that's equal parts unsatisfying and confusing, Obscure (or non-existent) explanations for key gameplay elements, Molasses-like skill progression, Indecipherable story

Dark Souls 2

  • 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...
  • 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: Enemies in Dark Souls are bastards. You know you need to be careful with every step and each encounter with an opponent is a fight to the death, with starting over or the glory of a hard fought victory and accompanying rewards as stake.

  • 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.
