It's superior to DS1 in every way. Don't listen to the hipsters.

Can somebody elaborate a little more?


No, they can't. It's bandwagon bull****. The level design isn't great, but Dark Souls and Demon's Souls had significant problems, too.

The Souls fanbase is just awful.

Decent game, bad Souls game.


As a person who has played all three extensively, I disagree. This is a great game and a great souls game, it's probably my favourite.

While it's obvious that not everyone will agree, what the majority will confirm that have played it, is that it's a very good game.

It's definitely a game that prompts mixed opinions but the fact is, most of them are positive. IMO, it's a must play if you are a fan of the genre.

I knew Dark Souls children would talk crap about it.

They think Dark souls is the only real game that exists, and that everything else only exists to be compared to Dark Souls. I miss when it was just Demon's Souls. I didn't have to hear about it in every single conversation about video games.

The different areas don't fit together very well, and some parts need to be teleported out of with a bonfire, which is a turnoff.

Not as good than the original Dark Souls but pretty damn good. You can tell if it's good if I bought the PS3 version as well as the PC version. The only thing that's killing the community are the cheaters (mega mulers or hackers).

Also not letting enemies respawn after a certain number of times they are killed, made no sense what so ever.
