WARNING: A new "HD version" of this game has been announced. It will be an entirely separate game and include all DLC content. Most importantly, this "old" version (released May, 2014) WILL NOT update to the new version, which will be sold separately.

Exclusive to the new version are re-mastered encounters, additional multiplayer slots, and graphical updates not available in this "old" version of the game. Furthermore, the two versions of the game will not be compatible with each-other for online play, nor will saves be transferable between games.

A forthcoming patch will add a new NPC, changes to soul memory, new items, new adventures, and other tweaks to the "old" version of the game. The patch will not contain the exclusive enhancements of the new version. If you want the exclusive content, you will need to purchase the new version of the game.

Therefore, it is my recommendation you avoid purchasing this game, as the new version will arrive April, 2015. I also strongly encourage you to scrutinize the business practices exercised by the developer and publisher of this game; we are being sold the same game again with minor, though desirable improvements.

Played the first one a lot on the 360. Dark Souls 2 is an amazing experience for people who seek challenges and hard gameplay. Different builds and a original way of story telling. Doesn't require you to play the first one, but people who already played the first one, would understand more.

Welp it pains me to say this, do not buy this game.


Now let me just say that i bought both and pre ordered the collector's edition and season pass and i honeslty think this is the best game of the year. Since day 1 I've poured 100's of hours into this i have such a blast playing this game that no other game compares and if it werent for the current situation i would tell everyone to go buy this game now.

But heres the thing yesterday, they came out a trailer for Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin which at first glance seems like a game of the year edition of the game. but unlike other GOTY games it dosent just include the game and all of the dlcs it includes content thats EXCLUSIVE to this new version of the game.

the rundown is this :
Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin will include the three previously released DLC packs - Crown of the Sunken King, Crown of the Old Iron King, and Crown of the ivory King - along with additional features.
All versions of the game will include the following features (Existing Dark Souls II owners will receive a patch to implement these elements):
Additional NPCs added for an enhanced story experience. Parameter adjustments for improved game balance. Augmented item descriptions. Improved online matchmaking functionality.
Xbox One, PS4, and DirectX 11 versions of the game will include the following features (in addition to those listed above):
Additional upgrades to graphics, sound, performance. Increase in maximum online players in single session (6 total).

the other thing thats not mentioned here is that dx9 and dx11 versions will be on SEPARATE SERVERS on pc which means people who own one version wont be able to play with the other. Ultimately splitting the community.

Now heres the question thats comes to mind, what will come of the current owners of the game? the people who supported your game day 1 are you going to honeslty make those people who bought your game and season pass buy it ALL over again? is this a joke? even if they offer some sort of discount its still extremely scumy regardless of how you look at it. The game is not even a year old let alone how long the dlcs came out. Talking about how the PC is thier lead development yet they downgraded the PC version because of the ps3 and xbox 360 versions of the game then making people pay more because of them making it on ps4 and xbox one when they should have had dx11 on release for free on PC.


If you see this game on sale dont buy it you are getting a gimped version. i would go as far as saying dont get Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin too if it goes down the way its looking now. Why? because you are supporting something evil for the future of gaming. I love this game and i honeslty think its one of the best games i played in years but really its not worth it enough to give in into something thats such ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. No game ever is. save your money don't give in.

also if they offer the new content for free i will change this into a positive review and why i think its a very good game even if it has its flaws but untill then i will keep it the way it is now.

I really love this game! The gameplay, graphics, weapons, just everything!
And it's not that hard, maybe in the beginning but after that it becomes way more easy in my opinion.
I've never played such an awesome game before.

I totally recommend this game, it's really worth the money!
Have fun. :)

Pretty good. Multiplayer actually works in the sequel so it kinda canceled out the mediocre level- and boss designs. Overal a worthy succesor.

Let's be clear. I love this game.

But, if you buy this game now, you are only buying it to play a less complete version of the game four months early. In four months this game is going to receive a rerelease on PC that is differentiated as the "DX11" version. This version will match the next-gen console rerelease and will have new features that are introduced with those versions.

Please wait. Your time (and money) is better spent building memories with a polished version of this game. Rather than a version that reeks of being thrown out the door in time for the end of the previous console generation.

From Software has announced a new "HD" edition for 2015, but most of it's features and all patch support will be moved over to the "next-gen" DX11. The two versions are not character compatible; people playing on the current DX9 version will not be able to play with those on DX11 and any characters created on DX9 (the current version) cannot be transfered to DX11. Also, expect this "upgrade" to cost $45-$60 and it's only offered as a free update to those in Japan.

Don't buy this game. Namco has decided that they are going to release an upgraded version of this game that runs on DX11 in April next year with visuals that were advertised for the first version but were cut out, while everyone who has this version will be stuck with DX9. These versions will use different servers, and the new version will include the DLC for free. Everyone who has already bought this version of the game has officially been screwed over, and if you bought the DLC you are even more screwed over.

♥♥♥♥ you, Namco.

Apparently an "HD" version of this game is getting released soon. Looks to be what Dark Souls 2 was meant to be initially, yet was downscaled for consoles. Namco Bandai want to charge FULL ♥♥♥♥ING PRICE for it too, regardless of whether or not you already own a copy of DS2.

Another company down the ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, gone the way of EA & Activision.

This game is so hard... that you even have to buy it twice to get DX11.

Seriously though, don't buy this version.
Wait till April 2015 for the re-release.
And note, your saves won't transfer.
