It was not as difficult as the first, however, it was quite fun to play with friends. PvP improved.

After playing through the original Dark Souls, it boggles my mind how people thought this would be a good sequel. Atrifical difficulty, hard only for the sake of stalling for time and creating frustration, hardly any reason at all to actually play through the game, especially considering how everything seems to be made with contempt for the player. Could've been much better, but I suppose that's why they made a Dark Souls 3.

Faster, a bit slicker, and all packaged in a new weird story. Only gripe is that hit box's suffered tremndously and the amount of balancing that was needed really did hamper the overall experience from the start of things. Regardless though still follows the same great game that came before it. 4/5

If you've played either of the other two, you'll definitely enjoy this one. Not nearly as polished as Dark Souls 3, but a step up from the first game.

Just look at how many hours I have logged in this game...it's pretty amazing!

First 20 hours: Getting smashed by everything and even getting trough a small area seems like an accomplishment.
After 50 hours:Stop getting rekt from almost everything and start getting used to the game, although some areas are still a pain in the fu#*$&@@ a$$ to get through.But you manage by taking 1000 lifegems with you and killin one enemy at a time.
After 150 hours: Start mastering the game and its mechanics, every bossfight is still pretty hard,but after 30 retries,having praise the sun guys helping you and reading every wiki article that is out there, you manage to do it and finish your second playthrough.Then you discover pvp.U'll either get some lucky kills at the arena or you'll get matched with masters in pvp with like 5000 hours only on pvping and rek your sorry a$$.After that you'll quit and never play any other dark souls again.
