Analog Addiction writes, "There were few games in the last console generation that were more difficult than Demon’s Souls, Dark Souls or Dark Souls II. And few with darker fantasy worlds. From Software plans to have us dying and dying in those twisted lands once again, but this time on our new more powerful consoles. How you ask? Why, with Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin a – if you like – remaster of last year’s critically acclaimed Dark Souls II. I have my views about the flood of re masters/ re-releases so quickly after their original release, but Scholar of the First Sin just may create an exception."
