Elden Ring review round-up - all the scores for FromSoftware's epic new game

Elden Ring reviews have arrived. Does FromSoftware's epic action RPG live up to the hype?

Elden Ring, FromSoftware’s highly-anticipated new project, was announced all the way back in the summer of 2019. But all this wait is, finally, almost over, as we’re on the cusp of the big release. That means we now have a plethora of Elden Ring reviews to read. Does it live up to the hype?

Elden Ring is pitched as a game that builds on the studio’s legacy of creating intriguing worlds, exciting and challenging combat, and a style of storytelling that demands you pay attention to every little detail you come across. It’s one that brings back and refines much of what players of Soulsborne games are familiar with, only housed in an open world.

A first for the storied studio; Elden Ring’s open world is large and comes with few restrictions on where to go and what to do. It’s designed for players to lose themselves in, guided by their own curiosity. To help you get around, you’ll be given a horse, and it’s going to become your friend over the course of this journey.

Does all of this make Elden Ring the ultimate FromSoftware game? Read on below to see what critics are saying in their Elden Ring reviews.
