Dark Souls is an unforgiving game. You'll spend 40+ hours grinding your way through beautiful environments, brutal enemies and dozens of epic bosses. All this is improved with constant interaction from online players who either kill you (if you wander into unforgiving terrority) or help you out (up to 2 players and an NPC) especially if you need to take down a boss or find yourself in a hard place. Overall the game is super hard and extremely rewarding experience. This game's a beotch and you will die, but the overabundance of tools and ways to take on the game makes it well worth the challenge.

dark souls 2 is a game where u are cursed and an undead person who has to remove the curse. it has alot of new features and is pretty similier to the first one but the difference is pretty much it has a really hard mode or a slightly easier mode. the game has new places to explore to go to and thats what i honestly like about. i was really excited when i opened up the bought package because i had waited so long for a sequel to the first one.
renting this game is a must if u love and have played demon souls/dark souls.
Absolutely NOT!! They destroyed the Souls series!!

They finally did it!! They killed the Souls series!! The deal breaker here is they put a limit on the number of re-spawns that the enemies get! The idiots went and they streamlined the game in a way that literally destroys the experience! Some of the greatest memories that I have of this series is finding rare loot on the bodies of the bad guys and they killed my loot hunting! You messed with my loot hunting FROMSOFT and I will never forgive you! The loot hunting was actually one of the highlights to this series which is what made all of the pain and suffering we endure worth it! Some cooperate monkey in a suit came u[p with the stupid idea of limiting our loot hunting thinking it was a good idea! To put limits on our game makes this game a shell of what little glory the series actually had.. Now this game is nothing, but a piece of garbage.. A lot of trouble started when the company CEOs think that they are incapable of messing up! You try working for hours on end to get a claymore from a blue-eyed knight in demon souls, and it makes the grind worth it! But you can't do that in this game! Because some cooperate dingle dorks think they should micromanage our experience with this game.. It is now verified that the people who make this series hate gamers, and they are begging for unemployment..
So, let us help them out by not bothering to buy this stupid empty shell of a game! Games like this are why we have GAMEFLY! RENT IT FIRST and see for yourself!
Try before you buy!
