Kevin at Press Start Australia writes: "Dark Souls II is definitely a game worthy of its title. Throughout my hours of playing I hadn’t even begun to scratch the surface of the weapon systems and deep lore the series is known for. While not as memorable as the first, Dark Souls II manages to surpass it with tightened mechanics and some brilliant moments. Unlike many other games I review, Dark Souls II is one I will revisit over and over for the rest of 2014. It’s only March, but we may just have the Game of the Year."
