Not a hollow victory.
Dark Souls 3 is almost here, and its review embargo is almost up- that means we are going to start seeing what critics think about Miyazaki’s newest masterpiece very soon. Are they on board with the new game fully? Or does the fact that it is the fourth release of its ilk in three years lead to some kind of franchise fatigue?
If the first review for the game from a western outlet is to be believed, the magic of Dark Souls is strong as ever with Dark Souls 3. UK Magazine EDGE have reviewed the game, and scored it a 9/10, noting that the game has the best boss fight in the series, as well as some of the best locales, but also acknowledging that it is a bit too familiar, and that it is not as nuanced or complex as previous entries in the series have been.
The cons definitely worry me, but hopefully, they’re not as emphasized in the actual game. Dark Souls 3 is launching on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
