Dark Souls 2 reviews are now live, with From Software’s dark RPG sequel hitting very high notes across the board.


Dark Souls isn’t to everybody’s taste, but those who enjoy its punishing formula have clasped the sequel to their bosoms; just look at all those nines.

In addition to the reviews below Dave has kept a journal of his entire Dark Souls 2 playthrough, because he’s nuts.  He’s put in crazy-hours and is ready to tell all.

All scores out of ten except where otherwise noted; feel free to add your own in the comments.

Dark Souls 2 hits PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on March 11 in North America and March 13 in Europe and beyond. The PC version is due at the end of April.
