Best game to come out in a long while, that's for sure. I played like 120 hours in two weeks.

But I can somewhat agree with a review that doesn't give it 10/10. Environment and boss design, although it is miles ahead of most games, was not quite up to the level of Dark Souls 1. I think the combat and sheer quantity of items was superior, though.

Yep. Not a 10/10 but absolutely another jewel in the Souls series :)

And I believe it's safe to say that the next gen Souls will blow away any quibbles we had about this one.
