New take in the Souls series. This time players are offered to overcome the immense difficulties in the kingdom of Drangleic. On the way to becoming human again, the hero must obtain a few greater souls. Gamers will experience player versus environment as well as player versus player gameplay using dedicated server technology. Invite your friends, fight your foes and survive your way through harsh medieval fantasy land. The game shares with the first installment in the series the engine and game universe but is not connected in terms of story. Known for its difficulty the game offers players unbeatable challenge. Bad play is severely punished by the game: each time player dies game protagonist loses a bit of maximum health just like in Demon’s Souls. Scholar of the First Sin bundles all previous DLCs for Dark Souls II as well as visual upgrades, new features and content.

For each of the Dark Souls 2 has already been looking for games/beloved/pure Purchase recommendation. 11/10 + Better Graphic + All DLCs + New NPCs + New Counters + Heavy counters + New Item (Weapons & Armor & Rings & Rings) and Monster placement (It won't be boring-Fast a new Game) + Coop and Multiplayer work far better, easier (6 Players) since I'm no Friend From the PvP bin ...-OP PVP invasion (Very much OP Player-suspicion goes on trainer modded equip)-New Dark Phantoms (very annoying) Conclusion: A whole new Challenge! < 3

At that time I played Dark Souls 2 on the Xbox 360 up and down For hundreds of Hours and now bought this Edition again on the PC because I didn't buy the DLCs back then. I leave the PEOPLE to own the DS2 on the PC already on the outside, as a new buyer you get a rich Package of demanding Entertainment, which captivates in front of the Screen for an Hour if you get involved. Crisp Graphic and Butter-soft Image Rendering in 60FPS complete the whole thing, I haven't had a single Image Slump so far (I Couldn't claim from the Console Version:)) Was Directly grabbed again by this Game and so quickly it won't let go of me because the changed Opponent Positions have created a different Game and the Pursuer this time lives up to his Name:) And if exactly YOU are now asking you, "Is it worth buying the Game again?" I can only say ... Yes! :)

Dark Souls 2 is highly recommended. The normal Version of Dark Souls 2 I played 90 Hours. And now so close to Dark Souls 3 I wanted to put myself back in the epic Atmosphere and therefore bought the Scholar of the First Sin Edition again. I have discovered on my Journey so far that some Places have been changed and other or new Enemies can be found in some Places. However, I recommend that everyone uses the Nvidia Control Panel at Dark Souls to set an Adaptive Vertical Sync because this is not possible ingame. This is also the only negative Point. On the Whole, I can recommend Dark Souls 2 to anyone who values more On a demanding Game with good Gameplay than to expect a Graphic à la The Witcher 3. However, an Xbox Controller or similar Controller is, in my Opinion, mandatory for a perfect Gaming Experience! Greetings and I hope my short Review was helpful. Enjoy Dark Souls and a Merry Dying!
A great game, doesn't have the heart and the soul of the first one but is not by any means a bad game. Although I think this one is kind of unfair with the lesser enemies (attack animation resets almost instantly) and also you need to grind a lot or at least more than the original. The included DLC has the the most difficult battles, that said, they seemed they were designed to be completed by a party, otherwise it will take a long long time (I was at lvl 170+ and my damage was a joke compared to theirs), its important if you want to solo this game.

It's awfully easy to tell Miyazaki wasn't the director of this one. However, it still holds lots of hours of infuriating yet fun gameplay, gorgeous areas and enhanced combat. The PvP won't let down either. 

On the counterpart, it might be too injust and tiresome at times, especially on some parts of the DLCs, that are purely hard for the sake of difficulty.
