This game continued to live up to the souls series and provided a plethora of new [brutal] bosses, hidden areas, and tons of completely open world exploration.
The game is exactly how I thought it would be. I'm sick of the carebear gaming genre catering to whiny casuals who complain if a certain puzzle/boss fight takes more than two attempts. Games like this (cough WoW), makes it feel unrewarding and you always walk away feeling like the game was too short or you didn't get your monies worth.Furthermore, I despise having a linear path progression through a game; you just feel like you are being spoonfed and handheld the entire time. Having the ability to explore different areas, and have multiple "boss fight options" open to you any any given point keeps the game interesting.
You will die, period. The sooner you accept this the sooner you will start to enjoy this game. Sometimes bosses will take 30+ attempts to down in order to get the mechanics right. Sometimes you'll be invaded while fighting other NPCs. Sometimes you'll fall victim to a trap and plunge to your death.Read more ›
The developers have little experience with PC games, and in spite of this they have managed to release an extremely well optimized game that could run on the weakest of laptops while still looking beautiful and retaining a smooth frame-rate.
The atmosphere is still there, the difficulty and sense of accomplishment surpasses its predecessors, and the new multiplayer and combat features are welcome upgrades. I do think the level design is slightly inferior and less memorable compared to Dark Souls' Lordran, but this could be due to the implementation of fast travel.
And please, make your first play through a special one by avoiding internet spoilers and guides.

What a masterpiece of a game. Everything about it screams death and frustration lol, but that's what makes it so good. I often found my self screaming "NOOOOOOO" at the screen when ever I died lol, only to get right back into it until I succeeded. Online Player VS Player (PVP) is lots of fun, and grinding for souls to put points and stats into your characters attributes to make him or her stronger and better is lots of fun too. I started out as a Sorcerer and eventually ended up with a intelligence/strength character build that just kicks ass.
Graphics run beautifully and without a hiccup at 1080p and 60fps on my GTX 770 graphics card. Played it using a PlayStation 4 controller with "DS4 Tool" which works like a charm. This game is definitely better played using a controller as opposed to a mouse and keyboard.
Highly recommended if you are into Role Playing Games. Truly epic. Can't wait until they make and release a Dark Souls 3.
Good news everyone! Game will play at 60fps right out of the box, no modding required. This makes a huge difference, and for me at least makes this repurchase totally worth it. Of course we also get the ability to render above 720p, AA, AO, and a few other graphical options. Nothing to fancy, but still enough to make it look quite a bit prettier than the console versions. Durante (guy responsible for DSfix) has already released a modding tool which is optimized to work with DSII (google "GeDoSaTo"). Not at all necessary like DSfix was, but adds some nice features like better AO, easy downsampeling, and better DoF. If you have a bit of a beefier gfx card might wanna look into it.
If you bought the console version of DSII and are wondering if the PC version is worth your hard earned$ the answer is yes, especially if you sell your console version to help cover the costs. If you don't have DSII yet get the PC version. I'm betting even some laptops could render this game at 720p with close to 60fps. The better texture resolution on the PC version, along with the higher frame rate would easily make it a better choice than the console versions.
Gavlan wheel, Gavlan deal!
[Edit] Forgot to mention, load times are rediclously fast (I have it on a SSD). You can use a cracked red eye orb and be in somebody's world in under 5 seconds!!
