Dark Souls II is calling my name...

Rate this Entry
Suddenly I have an urge to play it. Never played Demon Souls or Dark Souls, but I really want to get into Dark Souls II while it's still popular and there are people online.

Only thing is, I'm a bit nervous because of its difficulty and time sink. And also a bit wishy-washy, because I'm playing Persona 4 right now and wanted to jump into another SMT-game since there's so many of them on the PSN now, but I really wanna give Dark Souls II a shot. Don't think I could juggle a SMT game and Dark Souls II (plus Mario Kart coming out) since both are such high difficulty time sinks.

    Dark Souls II is really good, but if I were you, I'd get the first Dark Souls as well. The online is still active in that game.

    Dark souls 2 is hard, but nowhere near as hard as some of the early games on the NES. For a new player, the key is to be very observant and to always play conservatively until you memorize the layout of the area. A plus to dark souls 2 is that before NG+ the odds of you being invaded is very low and you will probably only see one or 2 invaders the whole game outside of 4 specific areas. You are also able to summon other players in your game to 3v1 any bosses you find challenging. I would say it takes 35 hours for a newcomer to see the credits.

    There are still tons of people online in Demon's Souls nowadays. I finished the game earlier for this time. Even more in Dark Souls, since the game is far more popular and well known compared to its older sister.

    Anyway, the difficult in the SOULS series is heavily overstated. The games are hard to get in, but once you learn how to play, you will rarely have trouble with bosses. You have to understand that the game isn't a action game like Bayonetta, DmC and stuff. You have to play cautiously, it is a very slow-paced game. Having that in mind, unless you are new to games or something, I doubt you will be frustrated when playing Dark Souls II. In any case, if you can't get past a certain boss or area, you always can summon NPCs or other players to help you, but I personally think that defeats the purpose of the game entirely.

    Dark Souls II is terrible. The graphics are shit (though the backgrounds can be beautiful at times). The opponents aren't what you have to fear, the fear of death comes from falling off a height or into lava. I found a lot of areas confusing to navigate, and I couldn't find any maps in-game to help me. The character creation was totally ganked from Oblivion, but my boyfriend said that the other games were like that, too.

    Overall, it was terrible and boring to play for the most part, though it's really fun watching people play: make the tiniest miscalculation in a jump and they die.

    SOULS in general is overrated. I've never found any of the games particularly good.
