Dark Souls 2: first review comes in at 90%, “The hardest Action-RPG in the world”

Thursday, 20th February 2014 12:24 GMT By Dave Cook

Dark Souls 2 has been reviewed in the latest issue of German gaming magazine M! The write-up awarded From Software’s sequel 90%.


The Dark Souls 2 review was teased over on the M! site, and is due to appear in tomorrow’s issue. Subscribers appear to have it early however, and have revealed that the RPG netted a 90% score.

The write-up reads, “The hardest Action-RPG in the world. More convenient, gorgeous and extensive.”

By comparison, M! gave Demon’s Souls 82% and Dark Souls 81%. The game’s out March 11 in the States, then March 14 across Europe.

Look out for my final impressions soon.

    Arg, why has the PC Version to be so late. Guess its better then getting a bad Port like with the first Game, but goddamndkdnsknddnd.
