Dark Souls - Review Roundup #4

here is a collection of reviews from the last week for Dark Souls: Prepare to Die.

Desslock gave the game 4.5 stars out of 5 for Gamespy:

While this port isn't the significant enhancement that we'd all hoped for (to put it kindly), Prepare to Die Edition is still clearly the definitive version of Dark Souls. It plays smoother, multiplayer is improved, mods have enhanced the resolution and promise further improvements, and there's content not currently available on the consoles. PC gamers have had to wait a while, but we now have the best version of Dark Souls anywhere, and it's almost-unique type of challenging and rewarding gameplay has made it one of my all-time favorite games.

RPGFan likes it for 85%:

The port itself isn't anything to write home about, so what about the new Artorias of the Abyss content? Explained simply, it's more Dark Souls. If you hated the original game, it's not going to change your mind. On the other hand, if you loved it – it's more Dark Souls! There are several new areas, all of which are up to the consistently high artistic standard of the rest of the game. The layout of one or two of them is a bit muddled, but they're just as well put-together as the main game, and the sense of interconnectedness that was such a well-beloved hallmark of the original release is still here.

Strategy Informer gives it a score of 9.4.

Worth Playing likes it a bit less at 7.3.

Gaming Nexus feels it is worth a 7.0.
