Dark Souls III - AoA GameBanshee Review

by Aubrielle, 2016-11-08 19:10:25

GameBanshee reviews Dark Souls III's Ashes of Ariandel DLC, and considers it an important addition despite disappointment over its size.

With only two bosses and a similar-sized area as Artorias of the Abyss and the Dark Souls II DLC, it's easy to see why there has been disappointment concerning the DLC's size. Still, there are a lot of opportunities to explore, and I feel like the strong atmosphere and the vague story are some of the most evocative material Dark Souls III has to offer. It's a bittersweet DLC that, PvE-wise, might either end up being ultimately redeemed or condemned by its promised 2017 successor, on which we still have no information.


All in all, Dark Souls III: Ashes of Ariandel is perhaps a bit of a disappointment, but still a very worthy piece of downloadable content in the grand scheme of things, and one that will certainly become a mainstay in my next playthroughs of Dark Souls III.
