    It would seem unthinkable but it’s true that the Old Hunters is even more challenging than the main game. Bosses and mobs are here to make our life much harder, but also to make us beg for even more! From Software delivers another unique experience depicted through a beautifully somber environment of which Lovecraft would be proud.

    The Old Hunters has questions, has answers, and has some glorious new secrets to be uncovered. If you have already experienced Bloodborne, this add-on is absolutely essential. If you haven’t, it’s the perfect time to join the Old Hunters and journey through the streets of Yharnam and the new nightmares that follow.

    The Old Hunters is Bloodborne from another time and place, and with more difficult bosses and confounding stories to unravel, it's a fitting complement to the original, gruesome adventure.

    Harsh, unrelenting and imaginative, The Old Hunters is a superb gaming experience and a masterclass in DLC development. [Issue#265, p.74]

    A good expansion for one of 2015's best games.

    A gruesome descent into hell filled with relentless challenge in every inch, The Old Hunters is a great continuation of Bloodborne, even if it ends feeling rather short and some recycled elements make it lose some luster.

    More isn’t bad just for its faults and repetitions. It’s worse than that: Bloodborne was pure—and The Old Hunters dilutes it.

Rightfully best PS4 game so far over the years. Expand

    One of the best DLCs out there. Bloodborne's best content, hands down. Unforgettable boss fights, unbearable challenges. Love it!

    Greatest DLC content. Probably in the same league as the Witcher 3 DLCs in quality, but not in length.

    Going into this as in NG+++ made the difficulty a bit weird. Most people had trouble with Orphan but I had most trouble with Laur___. 4 of the 5 bosses were extremely memorable in their own way, and while the size of the content limits the level design creativity, it still offered many little secrets and rewards.

    The DLC further consolidates my belief of Bloodborne being the best PS4 exclusive pre-2017.

I want to finish this game but unfortunately. I still stuck at the first boss from the beginning until the end. I know you might want to critic on my review. Before you criticize my review, you have to first self-review yourself. Did you ever rate 0 to other games such as Death Stranding and leave comment about that game was the most boring game in the world? Now you should know why I say Bloodborne is the most difficult game in the world. A game for minority is only suitable for certain people. Same like me too, I like to play Death Stranding but doesn't mean that I like to play Bloodborne too. Expand
