Dark_Souls_2_Review

The only thing that really needs to be said about Dark Souls II is that it’s more of the same. The game keeps everything which worked in the original. It remains hard as nails, improves and expands upon previous aspects without ever losing sight of what it needs to be, and is an all around solid title. The only real failings come from its increasingly overblown reputation and the various communities which have built up around it.

Belmont_Lords_of_Shadow_2

The real tragedy of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is neither the loss of its Metroidvania style nor the predicament of its protagonist. It’s the fact that it is a great game with so many visible blemishes plaguing otherwise excellent gameplay. It’s not that type of game where you enjoy everything besides that one irritating mechanic. Nor is it that kind of game where the experiences of good and bad even out into making it an average title. It’s a game where you jump in split seconds from God of War level fantastic combat moments, to shoehorned disappointingly unnecessary stealth sections.

Is it good, is it bad? It’s not quite that simple here.

Donkey Kong Country: Returns 3D was a great welcome back for the Gorilla with the tie. It was difficult, it was portable and it was really a return. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is the latest installment but this time, there’s no 3D but instead glorious HD. And by God it looks glorious.
