As far as the order went it was fantastic. I just got lucky I suppose but it got to me in like 2 days maybe 3 max, and I didn't order it expedited. On top of that it was so inexpensive for such a fan favorite game.
But personally, as far as the game itself went, I wasn't impressed. I was able to play a little of the first Dark Souls on my friends Xbox, so really wanted it for myself. This game was way cheaper than what the first one is going for. I looked up some reviews and people said they love it. So I thought it was too good to be true. Well it was. The inability to level up at any bonfire is a bummer, the menu screens and shown stats are confusing to look at, I think they have redundant stats, Vigor Vitality and Endurance should not all be separate things to spend souls on to upgrade, the controls were choppy and annoying to deal with, and along with that, freaking parrying is impossible without a shield. I could do it pretty well in the first one by the time I lost the ability to play it, but in II it's just stupidly annoying. I managed to get it like once, so I'm pretty salty about that, and I don't like that you only get one Estus flask per estus shard, although the life gems definitely make up for that I must admit.
