GameZone's Andrew Clouther: "As a hardcore Souls’ fan boy, I’m most critical towards the things I love. While I enjoyed the Dark Souls II: Crown of the Sunken King DLC, I have major complaints about it. I’ve cleared it three times and each time the same thing has left a sour taste in my mouth. If the title didn’t give it away, what I’m referring to here is the boss design. Both Elana and the three-way optional bosses sadden me on multiple levels. Why? Well, it’s a mixture of laziness, unoriginality, and difficulty for the sake of being difficult."
