Souls is my 2nd favorite franchise and I think elden is average.
Major complaints in order:
1) majority of bosses are really uninspired and frankly lame.
2) far too many repeat bosses. Especially with dragons.
3) difficultly is wildly uneven
4) catacombs and dungeons are uninspired and lazy.
5) graphics are just bad.
In the souls series, Elden is the weakest. Souls 2 is better. With blood, demon, souls 1 and souls 3 being leagues better.
I beat elden at 102 hours, beat all optional bosses other than malenia. Just didn't like that battle. The HP recover is cheap.Last edited by Chrkeller - on 08 May 2022
