Nice job, Mike.

I especially like the all caps freak out. Really got me going.

Is the backtracking as prominent as it was in DS1? Cuz that killed that game for me. Or well... it seriously wounded it.

Erm, DS1 is the game I reviewed.

Though, from what I've played of it so far, DS2 moves at a much brisker and more linear pace. I'm still not liking the game as much, though. It's too crass to be as patiently terrifying as the first game often was. I'm still not very far into it, though.

Haha! Massive fail. I just assumed you were reviewing DS2 cuz it was recently released and you're usually on top of the newer games. But yeah, so it makes sense that you mentioned the backtracking as detracting from the experience. From what I've heard, the second game mostly eliminates this flaw. True?

Pretty much. I'll try to finish it and review it by the end of the week.

Great review! Really captures the game's the atmosphere.

I have to return DS2 tomorrow, so I'm gonna have to try and finish it tonight. I need to take a break, though, and give my massive headache a chance to wear off.

...

I got the headache from playing the game, in case that wasn't clear.
