"Before starting Lords of the Fallen, I pondered setting myself the challenge of reviewing it without mentioning Dark Souls once. How naïve I was. This isn't just a game in the style of Dark Souls, it's a game that feels specifically designed to remind you of Dark Souls. You can't talk about Lords of the Fallen without mentioning Dark Souls, because Dark Souls is why Lords of the Fallen exists. It's practically a cover version, bar one important difference: it's not as intimidating."
