Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin (2015) MicroReview
Incredible design from top to bottom, fixing so many of the first game’s flaws while keeping everything that made the series great. Beautiful open world, with probably the best hub area the franchise has ever seen. All three DLC campaigns are excellent, though ‘Crown of the Ivory King’ stands out above the rest. Great PC port too. Just play this damn game.
