"Don't you dare go hollow."
The atmosphere of this game is amazing. You feel that the world around you dying by all the enemies you face, every NPC you talk, every view you see around gives you that "fire fades away and only thing remains is darkness" feeling.
I also like the story telling of this game, lets the player explore, find and put the pieces of lore together and use imagination to understand actually the main reasons why you immerse so much in that world.
Aside from camera, gameplay mechanics gives you flawless control over your character and when you die to a boss, you always know it is your fault cause you could've dodge, block, parry or run away etc. You feel so synchronous with the character you control that it feels like extent of your body.
With its predecessor Demon's Souls this game became a genre itself (soulslike) and influenced so many games coming after it. Such a masterpiece and forever classic is Dark Souls.

Although it's a great game the bosses runs are the worst freaking thing ever. Losing to a boss and having to go from the bonfire to the boss again it's simply useless. It's not frustrating, it's useless.
Running in souls games is so op that no enemy can basically hit you so every time you lose to a boss all you get is an annoying run to the boss that doesn't offer you nothing neither improves you as a player.
Otherwise it's a great game.

The Overly hyped game that deserves no more than a 7. The game is good, but there are far better game in this franchise. The DLC is the best part. The port is one of the worse.
There are other games to play.
