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!

Don't do it

This was the worst game I've played in a long time. The controls are the hardest enemy (and the enemy's are incredibly difficult), and death by lack of control will be a regular occurrence.
The save points are few and far between, and you lose all your 'souls' (money) and whatever items you used before death, so next time it's harder, and harder, and harder to proceed.
Graphics are dated, control scheme is terrible and near unusable, save system is horrendous, instructions are non-existant, there's no map, gameplay is incredibly difficult, repetitive, and just not fun. There's no difficulty setting too. It's just awful.
A game for serious masochists only, and you really need to want to hurt and frustrate yourself to like this. It seemed like a Skyrim beta where only 1/2 the features and controls work at all and the graphics aren't optimized yet. Save yourself a headache, don't do it.

I played about 7 hours worth of a bunch of different builds. As a vet of Demon's Souls and Dark Souls, I really enjoyed my time with DS2. I can feel the age of the PS3 with this game, so I am eagerly awaiting the PC release to fully immerse myself with this game.
