The Daily Dot Writes Up an Exceptional Dark Souls III Review

It's familiar but still fantastically created and produced, so the fans will adore it.

It’s familiar but still fantastically created and produced, so the fans will adore it.

The latest Dark Souls effort has arrived and critics have been weighing in over the past few days. Unsurprisingly, From Software’s new title has received plenty of acclaim; most reviewers say it’s another uber-challenging, extremely well-designed and presented adventure that will satisfy just about any hardcore fan. No review does a better job of capturing the spirit of Dark Souls III than our favorite evaluation thus far, courtesy of The Daily Dot.

Critic Miguel Concepcion pens a stellar review that is both exceedingly well-written and nicely structured. It also understands that while this entry may not qualify as revolutionary (or even evolutionary), the majority of followers simply wanted a great Dark Souls game, and that’s precisely what they got. Concepcion also outlines the improvements and additions while reinforcing the fact that yes, this is indeed what we expect from the developer. And that ain’t a bad thing.

Congrats, Miguel!

Why We Like It:

— Unfortunately, it can be difficult to find properly written and properly structured reviews. This one is a two-fer and the end result is a very professional and highly enjoyable article.

Rewards a developer for delivering precisely what the overwhelming majority of its fans want, as opposed to harping on a “lack of innovation,” which is often an unnecessary sticking point.

— Properly illustrates what Dark Souls does best, why it remains undeniably appealing, and what it has always been. Essentially, the review is an homage the franchise, and that’s great.

The game is amazing. End of story.

Well, it’s great but it really IS a lot of the same. I’m not sure if it’s worthy of a perfect score, that’s all.

I tried to like Dark Souls 1 and 2 and I could never get into either, so I’m going to have to pass on the third title, as it seems it’s more of the same.
