Dark Souls II Review - PCGMedia

Dark Souls II has had a lot to live up to. Its predecessors Dark Souls and Demons Souls are widely considered to be modern masterpieces, and the series has since garnered a sizeable fan following.

Although we have been greatly looking forward to Dark Souls II, a few early reports were troubling. First off was the director of the game being changed from the original, prompting questions of whether the game would manage to capture the ‘feel’ of the originals. This fear was further fuelled by rumours that Dark Souls II was aiming to be more accessible to a wider audience.

While this is true to an extent, we are relieved to say that Dark Souls II is more than just a worthy addition to the ‘Souls’ franchise. Rather, it manages to combine many of the best elements of the first two games, while further honing what is one of the greatest combat systems in any action title. (Dark Souls 2, PC) 95/100
