The creator of Bloodborne returns to the series that made his name, but is Dark Souls III a better game than the first sequel?
It’s interesting how Dark Souls II’s reputation has slowly eroded over the last year or so. When first released we, along with most others, considered it a worthy sequel to the ground-breaking original. But over time its world and monsters have lingered far less prominently in our memory than the first game, with the release of sister title Bloodborne only emphasising the deficiencies in terms of set pieces and more intricate level design. But we now have every hope that Dark Souls III will return the series to its former glory.
