Dark Souls II Review - GameFocus - Editor's Choice

Harsh, unforgiving, punishing, those are the words often used to describe the games in the Souls series. Having begun its life in the form of Demon’s Souls as a PlayStation 3 exclusive, the series was reborn in 2011 as Dark Souls, a multiplatform spiritual sequel to the original game that kept many elements from its predecessor, while redefining some core elements which really changed the game. Dark Souls II is a late generation direct sequel that doesn’t have the aspirations to reinvent the series, but attempts to refine it and polish up some rough edges. Does it succeed in keeping the series fresh, or is it in need of another reboot? Let’s find out! (Dark Souls 2, Xbox 360) 9.1/10
