Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin is like having a dream about Dark Souls years after you played it. Dark Souls should be grim, unwelcoming, and alien. You are fighting, exploring, kindling, and burning; however, suddenly there’s this meaningful action. Now, DS2 has a perfectly balanced sprinkling of… humanity? It’s fun, certainly, more fun than the predecessor. The combat is bold and heavy, and the duels are meaty and more interesting than fighting giant monsters. I laugh at real jokes, I’m moved by real characters. The game plainly states that it wants to cure “hollowness”, and it does.
