Dark Souls II
Dark Souls II, as the name itself suggests us, is a direct continuation of Dark Souls from 2011, a game hated more than loved, yet still a famous hit. It is created by the same developer that took care of the first part. We visit the same dark and upsetting realm that we saw in the first instalment. This time, however, we can explore another region, being another character. The story is not told to the player directly. Those interested in getting to know more about the realm’s history will have to pick up all the small clues from dialogues and item descriptions.
As in the first Dark Souls, we have to explore the vast area of the land, trying to find a medicine for a terrible curse thrown at our hero. We fight our way through scary dungeons and disturbing, dark locations typical for a medieval country, just a bit more… horrible. Every battle is a challenge, and even having played for hours you might find yourself sadly defeated by the simplest enemy possible. You gain experience with every fight, trying to develop the character into a powerful one. What you do and choose and what weapon you decide to use greatly affects the gameplay and the difficulty. Some ways of playing are more difficult than others, but each and every one can be mastered. Apart from typical weapons, your character can also use various spells, miracles and enchantments.
In comparison to Dark Souls, the multiplayer mode has been worked upon a lot. Quality of play has been greatly increased and new features added. One of the most important features is the system of clues and hints, special messages left by players themselves for others who may visit the same location. Thanks to a brand new engine, the game’s graphics are a lot better, too.
