Dark Souls II: Crown of the Sunken King Review

Take the best parts of Dark Souls II, add in some clarity, mix with a smidge of higher difficulty, and voila!

Although the game never feels cheap, it always finds a way to lure me into a well sprung trap in which I am ill-prepared for. Difficulty isn’t the only thing in which the Souls franchise is known for though, and Dark Souls II gives us another beautifully crafted world that’s perfectly ripe for exploration with rippling lore waiting to be uncovered and dissected.
