Dark Souls II Only the strong­est will sur­vive…

Australian T3 - - PLAY -

Aban­don so­cial life all ye who en­ter here. From Soft­ware’s dun­geon-crawl­ing com­bat RPGs have be­come the poster se­ries for a grow­ing trend in gam­ing that takes dif­fi­culty lev­els to self-flag­el­lat­ing ex­tremes, rev­el­ling in their un­flinch­ing tough­ness. But while hard, they are never un­fair, and this se­quel continues in the same vein, with mon­sters that can kill you with one blow, send­ing you back to an ex­tremely in­fre­quent save point, but whose at­tacks can be mas­tered if you’re up to the chal­lenge. Prac­tice bat­tles are a small con­ces­sion to ca­sual gamers, but this is for the hard­core. Those that do man­age to cheat death will be hooked. From $80, dark­soul­sii.com/uk, out now on pC, Ps3, x360
