First off, I pre-ordered the deluxe edition from GMG and it was available the minute the game was released on Steam. No problems with serial keys, no problem with online play, and no problems with anything related to transactions. It was my first time ordering from this site, and I have their trust for future purchases. As for DS3, it is very similar to the previous Demon's Souls/Dark Souls games. The plots are loosely tied together, and there are some recurring themes/characters. Below is the breakdown. Graphics 9/10: This series is finally available at 1080p and 60 FPS out of the box. I am playing with a GTX 970 and overall, the game caps at 60FPS for most of the gameplay. Sometimes, certain areas can dip to the 50's, but it is still acceptable. The graphics are very well done and the animations are accurate. Sounds 9/10: The sounds are also well done. They are both nostalgic to previous games while maintaining a sense of realism when I am running away from a fire breathing dragon, or barely dodging a giant hammer that's being flung in my general direction. The voice acting is great. Gameplay: 8/10 I am mixed when it comes to gameplay. The game plays very similar to Dark souls I and this makes me very happy as my biggest complaint with Dark souls II was the "clunky" controls that plagued it. While the controls are improved, there are some major problems with hitbox detection, timing of parry, dodging mechanics, etc. With that said, as you become more experienced you learn to incorporate that into your play style and adjust accordingly. It's still annoying when it comes to PvP, but overall it doesn't hinder the experience. The boss fights are thrilling, and figuring out how to approach them (depending on your class) is a real challenge. Gone are the days of tank and spank. Story/Atmosphere: 8/10 While it does have it's ties to other Souls games, I wished there was more reference and links to previous Souls games. As I mentioned, there are sense of nostalgia from other games, and some recurring characters, but overall I felt that there was a lot more to build on. These games aren't necessarily focused on story, but comparing it to Bloodborne (which had a fantastic story IMO), it's dull. Overall: 9/10 This game is definitely worth a few playthroughs. The experience is different enough each time depening on your character class. NG+ is a great experience as well, since many people are still super active with things like "fight clubs". The multiplayer and factions have been fixed versus previous games, allowing for many invasions and good times. If you haven't played yet, this one is worth the pricetag.
