For all you new players to the Souls series-- if an armorless character is running at you... they're stronger than you and you need to leave ASAP.

Genius. Being able to ditch a frustrating boss and go elsewhere is just pure genius for a fromsoftware game

Not my type of game or art style but man is it refreshing to see an open world that does not sell out their vision for mass appeal.

Lots of respect for From Software for staying true to their vision. From a niche title to a wildly popular franchise that has influenced many other games.

Gotta give props to any company nowadays that stick to their creative vision and don’t try to appeal to everyone for profit. Lot of respect for Miyazaki and the team.

I'm so hooked on this game. The magic and incantations along with spirit summons make for awesome boss battles. Never played any Dark Souls or Bloodbourne but it's got me wanting to now.

Owning this game is like a chest full of treasures. Truly an unforgettable experience in an RPG genre. A priceless treasure like Demon Souls, Dark Souls series and Bloodborne... Two thumbs up From Software. Another magnificent game.

This game will go down in history as one of the great gaming masterpieces. Elden Ring just keeps getting better and better the further you get into the game. Take your time and enjoy this magnificent world.

The effort and care the devs seem to have put into this game is outstanding. In an age of games that are released buggy, broken and unfinished, from software deserve a thank you for making such a masterpiece.

Lots of replies saying horizon zero west is better. can't we just agree with horizon zero west and elden ring releasing this month, that it is a great time to be a gamer?

I'm about 80 hours in now. Amazing game. Trying to complete everything available. Love super difficult games, and this is up there. Prefer this to dark souls.

Fromsoft deserves the success they have had. This is a complete experience, with excellent mechanics, open world, and so much pvp and lore to last for years. Game of the year for sure!

The.Willowa:
This game is a true RPG through and through. You can do basically anything you want and beat bosses in many different ways. The freedom you have in this game is close to nothing else we've seen. Not to mention the lore and story behind the elden ring world. This game is definitely one of the best games us gamers have been given in a long time.

Love how From is expanding the Souls/Bloodborne mechanics little by little.It's a game i'll never propably buy but enjoy immensely watching others play.

Might be one of the best review from ign up to date. Elden ring is amazing im 23 hours in and loving it. This review really is well thought out and explained as to why its amazing. The exploration really feels like no other game I've played. 10/10
Valkir
Valkir:
No day one DLC, no microtransactions or battlepass of any kind. Except for some bugs and performance issues Elden Ring is a complete package, this style of game isn't for everyone, but for me it's an absolute must buy and I'll probably be playing it for years.
Janken Pro

This is the Magnum Opus of Hidetaka Miyazaki and his team - This is the culmination of years of incredible work experience and what happens when a man and his team are at the absolute pinnacle of their craft.

Kyle Knudson
Kyle Knudson:
The best way to explain this game is that even if you don't complete all areas or beat the already discovered 151 bosses (listed on wiki so there's probably even more), it's beautiful in the sense that there's literally so much to do and so many places to go. So almost every player will still have their own experiences and probably have enough to be satisfied. Even if you only fight 80 bosses, that's still 80 bosses! This game is the best open world rpg any true fan of those genres could ask for.

Fromsoftware has been dishing out 10/10 games for almost a decade with only just 200 employees.

Don't worry, I'm sure after they patch it for a year and... wait... it's a complete, finished game upon release? Whoa. That alone deserves a 10.

Witcher 3 shows what a RPGs can be with beautiful vistas,deep develop characters,and huge deep lore,Elden Ring show us that level designs,art direction and precise controls can be amazing as well.

Amazing review, Mitchell. A true wordsmith, your way of describing your experience not only hypes up the viewers, but extends the magnitude of details & features every gamer out there longs for from a company that is no stranger at posing a worthy challenge for their players.

This game has an unparalled sense of discovery and adventure I've never experienced before
Darthelmet
Darthelmet:
The only thing that had me worried about the game was whether they’d be able to make the open world feel varied and interesting where it seems so many open world games fail to do this. I’m super glad to hear they knocked it out of the park in that respect. Never doubt FROM, they are masters of their craft.

[Soffy] H0T Girl L!ve Cam:
The way of completing side quests in From Soft games is different to any other game. They aren’t there for you to ‘successfully complete’ them. What you do will affect the NPCs is different ways, some might be positive, usually negative. The negative is just as important to convey the experience of the world as the positive is. And just like the real world you might continue on your own path and forget about a task you wanted to,do to help them

Average Nobody
Average Nobody:
Great game but on many occasions it feels like FromSoft forgot the, “fair” part of the, “hard but fair” premise they’re renowned for. Too many bosses have unending loops of super wide, sweeping attacks, with hefty range, 1-2 shot damage output, and ludicrous speed.
If you have fun mashing spells from a distance and chugging estus you’ll have a great time. If you try a str/melee build you’re going to have a tough go at it.

This game is truly the "Dark Souls" of open world games.

FromSoft just proving yet again that they are the torchbearers of the gaming industry's old spirit: total dedication to their craft, releasing a complete game upon launch, and constantly trying to innovate without sacrificing their soul.

They remind us of what gaming once was, and what it could be once again.

Shouldn't the multiplayer factor into the overall review score? He said he barely touched it. Seems like a really awesome game. Definitely want to see if people picking this up to play with friends can keep the same quality experience as the single player has.

Watched a few reviews and they have talked about exploration but they were mainly just talking about Items they found but Seeing this review makes me want to play love meeting intreasting NPCs that are not makers on a map Very few Open world games have giving me a sense of Discovery, Games Like , Fallout3, Kingdom come, RDR2, Witcher3, Skyrim and New vegas. But HFW, Ghost of Thusmia, AC games, Far cry, and Cyberpunk. Have all had every Single thing marked on the world map so hearing that this game has a sense of discovery makes it a must play.
