Dark Souls II Review

The sequel to From Software's masterful Dark Souls has finally arrived! At least it has for consoles, sorry PC players, April 25th can't come soon enough! Most of the major reviews are in and we've gathered them together for easy comparison. Some fans have been worried the game will sacrifice its trademark difficulty for more mainstream appeal, but is it true?

Check out the critical response below, and let us know what you think in the comments!

"It’s only March, but Dark Souls II stands tall as a potential game of the year."

9/10

"It's still a stressful experience, but it's easier than ever to recognize the brilliance in those moments of triumph that make it more than worth the struggle."

Edge

9/10

"Yet for all its little tweaks, Dark Souls II is, foremost, a game made for Souls players. It is a game that asks everything of you and gives so much back, keeping its cards close to its chest, and revealing them only to those prepared to die and die again. It is made to be played for hundreds, if not thousands, of hours as you try new builds, explore PVP and experiment with covenants, all the while slowly peeling back the layers of its lore. Some of its ideas work better than others, and Drangleic is no match for Lordran’s intricate design, but Dark Souls II is, like its predecessors, brilliant, beautiful, and absolutely essential."


Gamespot

9/10

"Dark Souls II is loaded with secrets and surprises, and even though I have finished the game once, there are so many elements I am still uncovering. I may not have yet unveiled all there is to know about this beastly game, even after 80 hours of play, but I do know this: I will be adventuring through Drangleic for many months to come, sure to be haunted nightly by the disturbing gazes of the faceless titans that tenderize my flesh with their two-ton hammers."


EGM

8.5/10

"While some of its features and design decisions might not sit perfectly with all fans of the franchise, Dark Souls II once again proves how enthralling and engrossing From Software’s formula of skill-focused combat, demanding challenge, and bleak ambience can be."
