Even if it's only been a year, time has not been kind to Dark Souls' sequel and this remaster does little to help the situation – even if it 's a hugely engrossing game in its own right.

Dark Souls II comes to current gen with a vengeance.

From Software once raised the bar for game design; now, they've done the same for HD remakes. Rest assured, this isn't just a lazy repackaging of old content. Even if you know the Kingdom of Drangleic like the back of your hand, you're in for many new surprises. And if you've never played Dark Souls II before, your patience has paid off: This is simply the best version of it you'll ever play.
