Horrible

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.
