The second game in FromSoftware’s Soul series wants to introduce you death, to have you embrace it. The back of the case reads “Prepare To Die” and you will die a lot. Extraordinary deaths that will bring rage and yelling, which may even feel cheap but will improve your play. Dark Souls makes no apologies for its difficult onslaught, there is no pause button and you can be attacked while in item menus. You will learn and you will win or you will have to do it over.
