You probably won't like this game. You will die, your ego will be crushed, your soul exhausted, and you will inevitably fail at every turn. Yet somehow in those moments when you do succeed, learning from every agonizing death, it is one of the most triumphant feelings in the world. Those heart-pounding moments where you narrowly dodge a towering giant monster's killing blow and swiftly strike at him with your last ounce of stamina, bringing him to his knees and finally overcoming him... are the most rewarding moments you will ever experience in gaming. But to get there, prepare to die. A lot.

About the game:Dark Souls 2, like Dark Souls, is a 3rd person RPG set in a fantasy world filled with nasty beasts that are much more powerful than you. Bosses are even more powerful, and require gaining knowledge through fighting them (and dying a lot). Think MMO raid bosses, except here you're on your own.

The combat is the shining star of the game. Every enemy has their own movement patterns and attacking styles, which turns every enemy into a sparring match and a mental game of chess against the AI (which is impressively brutal). Learning enemy attack patterns is the key to succeeding (bosses included), and boss fights in particular challenge you to try new techniques.

Your stats can be upgraded throughout the game and you will grow stronger. The armor and weapons you find can be upgraded as well in order to customize your character to your fighting style. Want to me a nimble rogue that dual wields daggers? A sorcerer in cloth armor that attacks with spells from a distance? A heavy armored knight with a tower shield and giant axe? You can build your character to be any of these, or any combination of these.

The bottom line is that this isn't a game that anyone can pick up and enjoy. This is an extremely difficult game that is made for patient people who enjoy complex stat systems, experimenting with different play styles, and adapting to the challenges that the game throws at you. If you can handle it, Dark Souls 2 is a masterpiece that should be experienced by anyone who calls themselves a gamer. Getting through it, on the other hand, will test you in ways you haven't been tested before. You have been warned.

Keep Calm and Praise the Sun.

You ever have a girlfriend that beats you to death, annoys you, but then you end up falling in love with her because she convinced you that everything she did to you was your fault? I've never had a girlfriend, but I have Dark Souls 2, and that's a good thing.

I died before creating my character. I got an achievement for that.

12/10. Would die again.
