Falsely Advertised, yet still good on a story basis.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dark Souls II (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I played the first Dark Souls and loved it; However with this one it just feels like copy and paste. The game graphics were said to be vastly improved and Namco even posted screenshots that looked like gen visuals. They also said the servers and online stability would be a lot better and to a degree, they are. My main gripe though is that there's still poor synchronization and latency between players when attempting PVP. You can still get 'lag stabbed' and gap hitting is still a problem. I gave this four stars because I hugely enjoyed the playing the story and love the game, its just the multiplayer (PVP) that winds me up. Not only is the latency still an issue, there's just no balance between the classes or restriction as to what you can use. I know some gamer's prefer this type of approach but im just not one of them. I like the battles to last longer and it just seems with this sequel that there are even more ridiculous spells and weapons that can just kill you in one hit. Its just seems completely exploitative and silly.

I agree. I love playing 1 player and have just started dabbling with PvP and can't believe how unbalanced some things are. I hit a guy about 6 times with my +10 magic mace, only to be killed by 2 hits of his greatsword. This especially happens with spells.
And yeah there is plenty of lag. Not game breaking lag but irritating none the less.
