I honestly came into this game hating it almost returned it but i am extremy glad i didnt i have played a ton of games in my time an i can honestly say this is the best, the most teeth grinding, exciting, suprising game ive ever played so i highly reccommend getting this
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.

I can't say I enjoyed this game what so ever it was not me great for RPG lovers that enjoy a rediculously hard challenge and enjoy loosing all of our souls (used as in game currency) every time u die sure u can go back to theplace u died last in an attempt to reclaim ur precious souls but more then llikely if u died there once u will die again forfeiting all previous acquired souls so if u feel like slamming ur controller off the ground in frustration then this game is for you
