What an amazing excellent game. Truly unique and for any Souls fan. But be warned, this game will make you love and hate it. It is NOT forgiving or for the feint hearted.
Praise The Sun!
Definitely a contender for GOTY!

It's a great game, if you want a true challenge, then this one is for you. Not as great as the first one. But still an absolutely epic adventure game.

Enjoying this game much more than the first Dark Souls.
The problem with the first one for me was that I didn't have much time to play during the week due to work, and having to travel so far between the Hub area to get back to where you were last grinding/exploring, fighting all the way there and back was took away from the enjoyment for me. In DS2, with the addition of quick travelling between the bonfires I can easily go back to the hub to level up and buy equipment or items and quickly return to where I was last exploring.
Another nice addition is the use of torches. Where the first DS was very dark in almost all areas, but still light enough to see, now you have colourful well-lit areas and very very dark areas where you will have to make a decision between using a torch to see your enemy or holding your shield to block attacks from an unseen enemy, or maybe there's a brazier or oil on the floor that you can light with the torch to light up the area. It's up to you to explore and find these little helpers.
With all the new changes and little helpers added, Dark Souls 2 remains true to it's core. You will die, a lot, very gruesome,unexpected, bloody or fiery deaths, and lose all of your unused souls/currency and have one chance to get it back. This game does not hold your hand or feed you with a spoon. From the intro video you will see that you are literally being thrown/jumping into the deep end of SOMETHING and you will just have to go with it and swim.
This game is very challenging and torturous, but it's oh-so-sweet when you start getting used to the combat and you as a player become more skilful and you start hacking through the lesser enemies (who are still VERY able to dispatch of you swiftly) without much effort.
