I was surprised by how good this game was as I heard people call this the worst souls game (it's not). In some ways it is the most unique one out of all of them and a lot of them are welcome changes which make them game really fun. Stuff like the healing being slower made it so you have to play every encounter a bit more carefully, and the rolling being tied to attributes makes choosing what to level up an important decision. This was the first time a story in a souls game actually piqued my interest and the narrative coming together at the very end was really satisfying.
But there are some problems with the game, particularly a few of the later bosses and locations were a bit of a letdown and number of enemies in some areas makes fighting large groups of them quite frustrating. (However, the boss runbacks with them were challenging in a fun way)
Well, I usually mention a few bosses here that I really liked with these games so my favorites would probably be the pursuer and lost sinner from the main game. The later DLCs were cool as well with fume knight, sir alonne and burnt ivory king.

It was pretty good, but didn't feel the soulborne magic as much from it. Occasionally had some cool locations and ideas, but bosses were definitely lacking. Was worth playing, but by the end I was honestly just happy to be done with it.

Dark Souls 2 is certainly weaker than the first game but that's really not saying much. This is an exceptional title and well worth your time if you're a fan of the genre.

I intend to write more on this game later, but overall I find it disappointing. I think the aspects that made the original Dark Souls brilliant are lacking in this game, even though this game improves on some things. Like the first game, your experience will improve once you know how to conquer it, but after a bit over 100 hours to get the platinum, I don't intend to return to this game unless I do a trilogy marathon.

foi o primeiro dark souls q joguei e no começo eu adorei soq ele perdeu o brilho quando eu conheci os outros
