OK so now i've finished Dark Souls 2 and what i was most curious about was that everybody seems to think it is a step down from DS1. There is no doubt that DS2 is a lesser game, and actually quite tedious at times. Who on earth thought it was a good idea to make the health-bar shorter and shorter after each death

Think this video summarize it very well
