After just a few hours of playing Dark Souls II, I can already tell that its a strong contender for GOTY. Everything that you loved about the first Dark Souls is here. A must buy for any hardcore RPG fan.
Dark souls was an extremely hard game, especially with the expansion. Dark souls 2 to me seemed a little more easy to play, you have a better abundance of help through summoning allies to help you get through specific areas in the game. Along with the messages you find on the ground throughout the game that at times can be very helpful. Dark souls 2 incorporates an amazing open world set that can be very unforgiving and one small mistake can change the whole outcome of the game. You could say the game is very delicate because every decision made throughout the game such as attacking allies, can never be reversed. Overall to keep things short, this game will kick your ### but the fun of conquering each area is so satisfying.
