Dark Souls 2 Review | IGN

IGN - Dark Souls II feels like playing baseball with a familiar, worn-in, comfortable mitt, only the rules of the sport have been slightly tweaked. Anyone worried that the sequel might rein back on the difficulty in favor of targeting a wider audience can sleep easy tonight – Dark Souls II is every bit as punishing, demanding, and ultimately rewarding as its 2011 predecessor. Its new ideas for both single-player exploration and helping and tormenting others in multiplayer don’t always quite click, but enough do to make this an exceptional game and an irresistible challenge.

Amazing as expected but nice to hear... Good job Fromsoftware!

Yup Demons Souls, Dark Souls and now Dark Souls 2 are some of the best games to come out of this past generation.

starchild3552d ago

I agree. They are great. I'm looking forward to spending some time with Dark Souls 2.

SilentNegotiator3552d ago

I haven't paid full price for a game in years, but I think I will pick up Dark Souls 2 today.

Psygnosis3333552d ago

The whole list :)


Did anyone played Otogi: Myth of Demons on original Xbox? Is it a good game ?

Irishguy953552d ago

Didn't even know about Tenchu and Armored core. Great dev

I was going to say, you missed Otogi and Otogi 2. They are two of my favorite games of all time. Super punishing like the Souls games too.

I just wish there was a working Xbox emulator because I still have the games, but no longer have an original Xbox. These games need to be re-released.

you missed 3D dot heroes on ps3, one of the best adventure games this gen.. more or less a clone of a link to the past on snes but a damn good clone.

from is my fav dev..

Sly-Lupin3551d ago

Why? Those games you listed cross the whole bloody spectrum. Sure, Dark Souls may be one of the very best games of the decade... but ACE:R is one of the very worst. ~__~
