Big letdown

I own Demon's Souls and Dark Souls and love both of them so I was looking forward to Dark Souls 2. I received this game in the mail and after playing it for about 5 minutes I realized they can't make Dark Souls any better but they can make it worse. In the short time that I had Dark Souls 2 I fought 3 bosses. All 3 bosses did the same moves and could all be beaten the same way. Most of the non-boss enemies could be beaten that same way as well. Also, enemies stop respawning after you beat them a certain amount of times so 'farming' for souls is limited. Your weapons' durability decreases WAY too fast as well. About 5 points every enemy you fight and then when the number gets down to 0 the weapon breaks. There were also a few times where I said "where do I go now". The major difference between Dark Souls and Dark Souls 2 is that, while both games will make you yell out in frustration and shut the game off, Dark Souls will have you coming back for more. Dark Souls 2 will have you taking the game out of the system and sending it back to Gamefly. I'm glad I didn't buy it.

The graphics are just as bad as the first as are the controls. I'm happy that people like this game, I'm just not one of them.

This Game is absolutely horrible, poor graphics, poor game control, poor story construction,and designed for you to just keep dying for no reason. I hate that I wasted my time even installing it on my system. I'm not certain what passes for an RPG game these days. But this is worst than anything I have ever played. reminds me of a knockoff version of a PS2 elder scrolls.
