The game, was hard to use and follow, boring and not what I thought. I do not recommend this game to anyone, the average rating is too high more like a 4

Perfect

NOT FOR EVERYONE! ... (but still awesome)

If you have no idea what kind of a game a Dark Souls sequel will be, you have no business writing a review. Minimal instructions, mercilessly tough, and punishingly unforgiving. Ya-maze-balls. So many ways to play through, crazy bosses, excellent utilization of online features. I've poured hours into this and I just got it earlier this week. I've restarted 5 times already to play with different features and each time is still really cool.

If you know what you're getting into - prepare to die. If this doesn't float your boat - pass it up; it's definitely not for everyone.

One suggestion I might make for people who are game for trying it out and struggling with how to play: Google it. We live in a time where you can find the answer to anything online. Google that ish. For real.

Very Good

Hardest game I've ever played

I went into this game not having any experience with the series. Shortly into the game I quickly learned that the theme of the entire game was dying, many, many times. Despite all the frustration, and there was a lot, I kept on trudging along. It took me over a month to beat it with off and on again play. It's a pretty long game and I didn't even defeat all the bosses.

It was at the ruin sentinels that I discovered I could turn to human form and summon npc help in boss battles. It was even later that I realized I could also summon other players. That revolutionized my future boss battles and ultimately made the game more enjoyable.

All in all I really recommend it for anyone who likes the fantasy rpg games. I'm happy to say that it's a notch in my belt I'm pretty proud of finishing.
