PREPARE FOR THE ACTION

lTony_Kl | June 25, 2014 | Review of Dark Souls II (NA)

The 1st thing you are going to want to do when you get in game is configure your controls, due to the fact that whoever came up with the default bindings apparently has 3 hands so they can perform some actions. A helpful tip is to put your left hand strong attack to "Tab" or "1" so you can parry easier (btw its very tough to parry comparatively to the other souls games).

The game feels focused on pvp, which extends its playtime (currently on 300+ hours playtime) but does not take away from the single player. Once you beat the game, you unlock NG+ which does not just make the enemies harder, but adds additional enemies, changes drops of enemies and adds new challenges to boss fights. All-in-all, the game is very well rounded, but it does require some balancing tweaks atm (wrath of god 1-shotting 3 people, etc), though, Fromsoft does like to take their time on balancing, I'm sure like in previous souls games, they will fix some aspects of imbalance.
