Average User Score: 8.8Jul 31, 2014After spending more time on ps4 version, the multiplayer is severely BROKEN. Chat will cut in and out, when you party up with friends, they will end up on opposite teams, finding a match appears broken - as it can take up to 30 minutes to find a game, and the facebook feature is not working. Unacceptable. Of course, they will release 5gb patches in the coming weeks to fix this. I'm burned out with this generation of gaming. They send the game unfinished while you wait or patches. Why no one else is talking about this is beyond me, but if you look it up it is taking place.
PS3 is the better experience… Expand
Average User Score: 7.8Jul 24, 2014I'm almost finished with DLC - and I feel I got my money's worth. Level mechanics are great...you'll have some "AHA!" moments where you think you're lost, find a switch, and discovered a shortcut. I'm impressed with the difficulty - i thought my level 340 toon would blow through this, but I feel like the challenge is just right. In short I died. A lot.
I wish they combined all 3 DLC's instead of releasing them monthly. Even though I got my 10 bucks worth - I will be moving on to other games soon and I doubt I'll be playing Dark Souls 2 by end of September. (even though I spent almost 500 hours on dark souls 2).… Expand
Average User Score: 8.0Jun 2, 2014One of my fav. games of the past 5 years. Very rarely do I spend well over 200 hours on a game and thirst for more. It's not perfect - hit detection can be off, and pvp is unbalanced overall. But I cannot give it less than a 10 when I know I'll be consistently playing this for at least the next 3 months (probably 6).… Expand
Average User Score: 8.3Apr 21, 2014Amazing, amazing game. I'm in love with Demon Souls, Dark Souls,and now Dark Souls 2. What I find is that although I liked the level design of Dark Souls 1 more, I actually love the soul of dark souls 2. It's difficult to explain - but its as if Dark Souls and Demon Souls had a baby and named it Dark Souls 2. If you played them all you'll understand where I'm coming from. I beat the game in around 70 hours (I don't summon help, and not the best), and I"m already starting again to see what I missed in the first run.
Some complain of the controls. I think they expected to parry and defend themselves like they did in Dark Souls 1. But enemies are new, and have different movements. I had problems at first too - but learned their movements and can parry easily now.
Some are complaining of the graphics. There are bland moments of darkness, but then your eyes are treated to beautiful scenery. You can't have the sweet without the sour.
Anyways - I have about 100 hours logged in and I can easily see playing 100 hours more.… Expand
Average User Score: 3.4Dec 6, 2013This game is horrid. It's strange how modern warfare 2 could be so much better and have so much stradegy, while this is just run around....and kill someone with 1 bullet regardless of what gun you are using. I even put in over 80 hours in black ops 2...but i cannot do this anymore. Nothing has changed, and where they milk the franchise annualy, the gameplay only gets worse. Stay away...if you really want a shooter, go for battlefield 4. It's not perfect, but light years better.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.1Aug 20, 2013Way overhyped. This game is getting so much attention because no other game has done this yet (and so many want it) I feel like i'm playing a very early unfinished product. The AI is bad (and so bad that NOTHING compares to it) Better off not even calling it AI. You'll be in firefight and your AI friends will just stand in the middle of the street. Funny if it wasn't so sad. The cops..lol. You'll see them running..then disappear and reappear in different location. Love the soundtrack, style, and concept. I hope they rake in enough to actually make a decent game that is more playable online (better matchmaking) and fun offline splitscreen. If you disagree with this then you are wrong.… Expand
Average User Score: 9.1Jul 29, 2013What the hell was I thinking???? I gave this game a 7 only 5 hours into the game. I guess because I'm so burned out with zombie games. But I'm rewriting this review to say I'm absolutely obsessed with this game. Game of this generation..on ps3...xbox...maybe even xbox one.
Not enough talk about multiplayer...so I'm going to talk about it. Multiplayer....omg..awesome. Very addictive. I haven't thought this much about multiplayer since when modern warfare first came out in 2007. At first I was getting slaughtered...but you have to think to win. I hate even bringing up COD since it sucks so bad now, but trust me this game is revolutionary. Check it out, even if you dispize zombie stuff like I do… Expand
