- "Welcome back to one of the most unforgiving games of the decade with several terrifying bosses not to mention optional ones, Powerful weapons, A lovable Onion Knight (Total FF reference) and plenty of little beasties just howling for your souls." in 5 reviews
The concept of challenge in this game was handled almost perfectly. Almost, you ask? Thing is, it may, at times, push you over that line where you DO actually give up, turn off the game, and not play for another month.
The community aspect is amazing Player made messages are left around to keep you on the right track and warn you of coming dangers, and it allows for a sense of belonging in a fantasy world.
The feeling that you could be killed by literally any enemy makes for a suspenseful, action-packed, beautifully crafted game that will keep you on your toes.
As much as this game does right in concept, it trips over itself in the game design itself. The unorthodox control scheme will fool you sometimes, maybe I'm just stupid, but I kept drinking from the Estus Flasks accidentally when I wanted to change something or attack. The graphics are sub-par for its day, and although I don't hold graphics in THAT high regard, they are a huge part of any fantasy game's immersion.
8/10 Great concept, well handled, could use polishing.
This game will kick your behind, and you will like it.
NEITHER one of us is completely sure what is happening story wise. That gives it great replay value though because there will ALWAYS be something that you missed.
