It will beat you, kick you and laugh at you in the process, but you’ll always come back for more. Why? Because it’s your fault when you die. Because you know you can do better and take that huge boss down next time. Because you want that moment of pure, unbridled joy and stick two fingers up at the game when you’re done. Because you want to explore the desolate yet beautifully crafted world From Software has created. More than that, even with the long loading times and minor technical hitches, you simply want to keep playing an incredible game. Seriously, it will test you, but if you’ve got the skill and patience, you need Bloodborne in your life. The best PS4 exclusive so far, and an essential purchase."
