9.8/10
Daniel Tack (Game Informer

An epic adventure from start to finish packed with wondrous environments, imaginative and terrifying foes, and the continual adrenaline-apprehension rush of passing through each fog gate. These aspects make this title a must-play.

More accessible, challenging, and rewarding than its predecessor, this is the Dark Souls sequel PC gamers deserve.

If you had issues with Dark Souls II on console then Dark Souls II PC will not fix them. If you were hoping that this would be the gorgeous next-gen Souls experience we were shown in that first video then, well, it isn’t. But if you were holding out to find out just how the PC version of Dark Souls II performs then know, with full confidence, that it is far and away the superior version, and that’s without the need to download any sort of fan-made patch. The cycle of death and success has never felt this good.
