Not a fan of some of the lighting changes and the overall over brightening of everything (plus the new bonfire effect). However, being able to shrink the UI is great...but then the boss health bars become really small and dumb looking along with it. The Nintendo Switch version would be my preferable version, weirdly enough, if it weren't for the abysmal sound quality - whatever happened there - as it is basically just portable Prepare to Die edition. 60fps is nice for all other versions, but playing the original Prepare to Die edition on the PC with mods is definitely a better experience (if you are lucky enough to even have that copy of the game since they so kindly delisted it from Steam).
However, it is still Dark Souls and I adore Dark Souls (see my review for the original game or Prepare to Die edition). And if you are interested in the PvP for this game for some ungodly reason then this is the best way to play.
I was skeptical about Dark Souls, but I sat down to actually play the game after I got it on sale and was harassed enough by my friends. Dark Souls is not much like what I expected, the game was so open, and you have so much freedom to play the game you want that after completing the game the first time in about 10 hours, I immediately started a new playthrough. After finishing the game 4 times, and doing so in dramatically different ways each time, I decided to finally move on to something else, but I can say that I had just as much fun every playthrough. The game has it all, great style, great gameplay, good music, and a cool story. People love to go on about how hard the game is, but the truth is this isn't a very difficult videogame if you are willing to do some extra exploring. Many areas can be skipped or made much easier by just taking your time to search for different routes or items. Overall, I had a great time and would recommend this game to anyone.
