    It's worth a play, but it's extremely hard to go back to because it controls like absolute dog shit and adaptability is the dumbest shit imaginable.

    Sure, try it. You're way past the hype cycle and better able to make up your own mind.

    I think the key difference is gonna come down to whether you're okay with a Souls game being broken into conventional videogame levels, instead of a continuous world.

    And instead of the world being indifferent to your existence and kicking your ass as a natural consequence of what happens when an insignificant bug intrudes into a Black Knight's livingroom, DS2 pretty much openly acknowledges that it's a themepark where the theme is 30 recolors of you getting jumped.

    It's a good action game, just try not to get too hung up on the fact that it's a sequel, because for all the things that it repeats, it also abandons a lot of things you might've really enjoyed in the first DS. Like atmosphere, for one.

    Im replaying it right now since just finished ER
    I'm having a blast again. Its world is the most engrossing of them all. The first time around is chock full of surprises.
    I actually think it's my favorite.

    The worst dark souls game is still better than 99.99% of the other slop out there

      This is exactly my opinion on the game. Worst in the series without a doubt. Still well worth anyone’s time and money compared to most games

      this is my opinion too. it might be a bad souls game (mechanically at least) but even it is miles better than what western AAA devs have made in the last 10 years
      it also has the best pvp and build variery

    I played it for the first time last year after finishing 1 and 3 for the first time and I didn't like it. Controls are horrible, the bosses are lame as FRICK and most areas are way too cluttered with shitmobs. The third DLC was almost fun, but then I discovered the Frozen Outskirts or whatever the snowstorm area is called and it was unironically the worst area in all of Soulslop.

    Nah, I finished all the games with Gankereddit approved strength builds. Being blind is not a fun mechanic, ask blind people if they're having fun and they'll answer 'no'.

    it's ok, has a lot of neat ideas but it's also some very questionable ones. It's worth a play-through if you like the others.

    not at all. You just have to know how it's different so your expectations are appropriate
    If you like the story of dark souls, realize that it's basically dark souls gaiden, a disconnected side story. If you like roll centric combat, realize that you're why they made ADP. If you like a single cohesive game world, realize that in this game the areas themselves are more important than how they're connected

        I actually found a lot of stuff after a second run. It's got a lot of cool secrets and optional bosses and areas, and it's the only one with a good ending

        so you are saying being able to play the game less is a plus for dark souls 2?

        Build variety is trash in Dark Souls 2, there isn't even a proper stagger system lol

    it depends on how good you are at these games. peop;le who "enjoy" cheesing the games and not actually engaging in mechanics hate 2 because its not as fun to cheese. Its similar to elden ring where if you suck and want to cheese you spend a lot of the fight "waiting for that one attack" and it is tedious. If you arent a total shitter then its not a problem, but it does play different than the others.

    Memorable game, more so than DS3 but the boss variety is hilarious.
