An open world action RPG from FromSoftware that reaches new heights, but spends too much time in the familiar.

A masterful blend of Dark Souls and Zelda: Breath Of The Wild that makes high demands of its players and yet still remains surprisingly accessible and adaptable.

Elden Ring is both a refinement and evolution of the Dark Souls formula, presenting an expansive world that's as hostile as it is inviting. Despite the occasional excess, suffering has never been as much fun as this.

Elden Ring represents a truly amazing combination of various game elements that all come together to create something fascinating, special, and unforgettable. Elden Ring isn’t just the best game this year; it’s one of the best games ever made.

Like most great works, Elden Ring is magnificently flawed, equal parts beautiful and ostentatious. In this age of cookie-cutter, paint-by-numbers, triple-A development, what more can you ask for than something wholly confident in its bullshit? Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m only about one-third of the way through the game and would love to see at least one of its multiple endings sometime this year.

10s aren't perfect, since nothing is, but they come as close as you could get in a given genre. The new leader to beat in its sector, we're talking pure ecstasy.

Games like Elden Ring only come once or twice in a generation and raise the bar on what the medium can offer.

‎Elden Ring is a resounding step up from today's soul-like standards. FromSoftware thus gestates a video game like no other has created, in which a gigantic and absorbing universe will surprise players again and again despite the dozens of hours they accumulate. Elden Ring is, without a doubt, one of the great candidates to become the GOTY of 2022.‎

‎FromSoftware signs a title that, more than a new IP, looks like a swan song; the culmination after 13 years perfecting a genre. The ideas and learning of his latest works converge within the richest and most exquisitely designed open world that our feet have ever trodden. Elden Ring is a madness that seems impossible to beat.‎

Elden Ring is the game Souls fans have been waiting for. From the open world design, to riding into battle on Torrent's back, and the dark narrative woven through the world, this is a clear Game of the Year frontrunner that will have us all ensnared for a long time to come.

Still, frustrating (and unexpected) PC porting issues aside, Elden Ring is an unabashedly challenging, unflinchingly engaging and unbelievably well-designed game set in a truly unique fantasy open world brimming with places to explore, treasures to unearth and enemies to vanquish. It’s bloody great. I can’t wait for you to play it!

Elden Ring is a superlative title, one of those works capable of becoming an event and becoming engraved in the collective imagination. It achieves this by remaining faithful to its formula and exporting its identity to the concept of the open world, achieving its own personal approach, resulting in a world that is visually stunning, and that works with overwhelming precision in terms of mechanics. An excellent videogame that also maintains the concreteness of its proposal.

After a lot of waiting, FromSoftware was able to pour their many years of experience into Elden Ring, and with the participation of famous writer "George Martin" on the story front, we now have the best Souls game ever.

Elden Ring brings the "soulslike" formula into a new context, broad yet coherent and cohesive, and from this point of view it is a very successful new beginning for the genre for which FromSoftware has become famous.
