    A great start for Soulslikes!
    10
    • Pros
    • Lots of customization
    • A massive open world
    • All playstyles are viable
    • Interesting side-quests
    • Multiple endings
    • Lots of replayability
    • Cons
    • Not the best keyboard and mouse adaptation
    • Can be overwhelming at times

    Going into Elden Ring as a complete newbie to Soulslike games, I wasn’t expecting much, all I knew was that the game was gonna be tough and unforgiving. But what I got was completely unexpected, an interesting main storyline with actual choices and multiple endings. Lots of things to do and collect, tragic stories to learn. It’s a masterpiece, I haven’t even beaten the game and yet I’m already thinking about what I want my playstyle to be in the next playthrough. It’s fun, it’s addicting, and it makes you learn every secret the game has, without it feeling like a chore. And don’t worry about needing to use a guide on how to beat a boss or how to make a build you like, the creator itself said that it’s okay and you’re welcome to play however you’d like.

    • Pros

    • Need high spec PC

    Since the game has an endless background like Warhammer, I won’t go into the lore part of it, but if I had to summarize; We play a character who is exiled to a land called Lands Between, and in the great wars that took place in this universe, the great power called the Elden Ring was divided into pieces and used by different superior beings. Since almost all of them lost their way or fell into power poisoning, our character comes into play here and collects all the pieces and returns to the land. It aims to bring order in line with the choices made by the player. Melina, who can be considered as a guide throughout the game and claims that she was born at the foot of the sacred tree Erdtree, gives us information on how we can achieve our goal and lends us the mount Torrent, which is with us on the roads throughout the game.
    To summarize the experience of the game, Souls games were a type of game that I did not play, like football. The only experience that could be considered as die, learn and repeat, and which was a bonfire, I had before by completing Jedi Fallen Order on the hardest mode. I bought Bloodborne on the day it was released and did not have the opportunity to play Elden Ring. When I entered the game, I realized that the game was made to attract everyone. Unlike the company’s previous games, the game gave the player the freedom to create his own experience. Depending on whether you were prone to combat or stealth, you could proceed by ignoring an area or, if you had good reflexes, with a low-level character or equipment. You could complete a region directly and in return earn loot that would make your job easier later.
    The game does not give you any clue or task other than the light on the bonfires that points towards the location of the main quest. Elden Ring is one of those rare single-player games where the majority of players who start the game without looking at any resources progress in completely different ways towards completely different places and progress with different equipment and levels. Development is completely optional. The abundance of events and places is unbelievable.
    Boss battles, which are the most important part of the game, are mostly designed successfully, with a satisfying number of Bosses that suddenly appear before you and that you cannot predict what they will do, with completely different mechanics.
    Finally, Elden Ring is one of the games that will be released in a long time, with its almost perfect locations, the feeling of freedom it gives, and the feeling that it is a game made with care that makes it feel really old school. It is a masterpiece. “Game of the Year”

    Elden Ring for New player's
    10
    • Pros
    • Beautiful and Immersive map.
    • Very addictive
    • Amazing combat
    • Every boss has different music and attacks to it.
    • Cons
    • Some bosses are repeatable.
    • Lack of NPC dialogue.
    • Gives you headache

    Elden Ring is must buy game.

    I played Elden Ring after the hype. I’ve never been a fan of From Software games, but I’ve always had a lot of respect for the games they’ve made. They’re a company that goes against the current AAA game standards. They have a formula, and with each passing game, they improve it more and more without resorting to microtransactions, DLCs, and silly mechanics to cut development costs.

    That being said, Elden Ring was a game that had been on my wishlist since its release. The idea of an open-world Souls game seemed like the perfect opportunity for a gamer like me to enjoy the game without experiencing as much stress as in previous games. However, I was afraid of spending money on the game and not playing it. Fortunately, I bought it on my birthday

    I haven’t finished the game yet, but I’m already at 70 hours, and honestly, I have no intention of rushing to finish it. I want to explore every corner of the map, face all the bosses, enter all the dungeons, and plunder all the castles. The exploration in the game is magnificent, death is not nearly as punishing, and the combat can be whatever you want it to be.

    My only criticisms of the game are that some bosses are repeated too much, the co-op mechanics are terrible, the story is poorly told, and there’s a lack of an NPC dialogue log. I’ve lost count of how many times an NPC has told me something important, and I haven’t paid attention, so I have no way of knowing what they said without looking it up on the internet.

    I can’t wait to beat the New DLC which is coming Next month.

    Elden Ring is an amazing soulslike game with captioning and immersive lore, challenging combat, and beautiful open world ready for exploration. Even though it can be difficult at times, and it has occasional technical issues that may frustrate you, its world, lore and coop multiplayer options make it a must-play for fans of the genre.

    Probably the best open world today

    • Pros
    • Combat
    • World design
    • Exploration
    • Lore
    • Graphics
    • Enemy variations
    • Cons
    • Crafting might be not useful
    • Difficulty
    • Limited co-op

    Elden Ring is probably the best open world game today. From Software took the formula that revolutioned the industry of videogames and perfectioned it to make the best souslike and maybe the best open world of this generation.

    The combat in Elden Ring isn’t very complex but it’s really satisfying, making it possible to use a lot of different playstyles depending on the build of your character and the weapons you use.

    There are a lot of variations in Meele and range combat, the last specially with magics.

    The scenarios of the game are immensely beautiful with a lot of secret locations, bosses and loot that make exploration funny and rewarding.

    The difficulty of the game may be a problem for some people but instead of the others soulslike games, Elden Ring is a truly open world game, making it possible for you to try different areas and maybe come back after you are stronger to the areas that seems too difficult or even impossible earlier.

    The bosses are extremely well designed and often make it necessary for you to learn its moves and try different approaches to be able to defeat them. The number of times you need to die to learn how to defeat a boss may be a little overwhelming and stressful at times but when you are finally able to defeat them it’s a very satisfying feeling.

    Elden Ring is a must play for everyone who likes soulslike and open world games!

    Great game

    Quick summary: Yes. It’s a souls game and if you don’t like it, it’s difficult to like it.

    On the other hand, it has an adventure component that at the same time distances it from the Souls saga, giving you many more possibilities to face a challenge. The bosses are no longer a succession of steps on a ladder but the challenge itself can be found by exploring a cave and there being, for example, a pack of wolves or an area with traps and ambushes by sneaky characters. It is an adventure with capital letters where the story is, once again, the least important thing (even less); What matters here is the experience of the adventure that you build for yourself.

    The gameplay in Elden Ring is completely revised both in terms of mechanics and when choosing how to face a challenge and, unless it is a mandatory stop due to the story, you can avoid optional area confrontations and return later, as well as summon people practically at any time and in different ways. Crafting or manufacturing objects is a plus since it will allow us to be much more generous with how we face challenges and clean the scenario, inviting us to try more techniques, weapons, types of arrows, etc. Let us remember that in the Souls saga these objects, although they were not luxury, could only be purchased to obtain negligible damage to the enemy.

    The mount will be truly crazy (with its own set of movements) and, although they will not make us invincible (as there are enemies specifically designed to pull us from it and kill us instantly) they will make collecting deaths and materials infinitely more fun and bearable

    Stealth is very well implemented and will be your ally (as will be jumping or falling attacks) when clearing areas. Plan your strategy well because you can go from clearing a castle from the rear of its defense to being swept away by its resistance of automatic crossbows.

    Pros:
    Open map, very active cooperative, many character possibilities, many mini-bosses, much clearer description of objects than other From Software deliveries, spectacular visuals and a tremendous soundtrack that will accompany you constantly. The gameplay benefits from open spaces and/or the new mechanics of the title.

    Cons:
    Needs to improve graphical performance as we are not getting a completely fluid experience. It is understood that with a patch they will surely reduce the processing load and it will be more playable. With an RTX2080 I rarely get 60fps stability with a medium-ultra setting. Once this is over? Zero problems, really. Some hit-box a little strange but to say something.

    FromSoftware has done it again!
    9
    • Pros
    • Amazingly solid game, with tons of content to spend time with.
    • Great mechanics and customization, exploration and lore.
    • Characters are memorable, bosses and creatures are hideous.
    • It has of the best gaming OST of all time for a Soulstype game.
    • Cons
    • It is a game made for previous FromSoftware and Soulstype like game players. There is a great threshold of entry for newcomers, but once that is passed it should be one of the best gaming experiences of your life. Some bosses may be frustrating sometimes and don't recommen PVP for newcomers.

    Just give the game a try if you wanna get into a Soulstype game from FromSoftware that does not already have established lore from two previous games (Dark Souls); is on PC (Bloodborne); and is not the hardest thing ever (Sekiro). If it isn’t for you gameplay wise, I encourage to at least give the OST a listen and read into its lore.

    Elden Ring: Where Death Count Goes Sky-High!

    • Pros
    • Simply enormous open world
    • Highly successful artistic direction
    • Genuine curiosity is rewarded
    • Both accessible and unforgiving
    • A constant sense of adventure
    • Always epic, intense phases
    • Rich and consistently top-notch gameplay
    • Cons
    • It's not really a weakness, it's the essence of FromSoftware. The game is genuinely challenging, sometimes excessively so with certain bosses.

    Not being familiar with FromSoftware’s universe and having heard so much praise for their work, I decided to dive into their latest masterpiece, Elden Ring, the brainchild of the creators of Souls, and wow, no disappointment. FromSoftware’s reputation as a master of difficulty and immersive storytelling prepared me for an intense adventure. From the first minutes of Elden Ring, I was captivated by its fascinating world, demanding combat, and astonishing level of detail. It was like delving into an unexplored realm, rich in mysteries and challenges. Now, let me take you through the lands of Elden Ring and share my journey in this exceptional world.

    Similar to its predecessors (which I’ve watched and re-watched in streaming gameplay), players no longer have to navigate the corridors of torturous dungeons. At least not exclusively. The game unfolds in a massive open world that lacks predefined points of interest to guide players in their exploration. However, this fantastical realm with highly pronounced landscapes highlights everything worth seeing, contributing to a constant sense of mystery and forcing players to keep their eyes on the unfolding events.

    Regarding our character, the game offers a choice of around ten classes, including the warrior, ASTROLOGER, Prisoner, Samurai, and more. Each has its own starting characteristics that can change based on your choices throughout the game. So, you can begin as a warrior and later transform into a magician (you get what I mean).

    The game features a bestiary as broad as it is varied, from bizarre creatures to giants, and from dragons to spider-handed entities (like Thing in the Addams Family but larger). There are also over 60 bosses, half of which are major bosses. Whether on your mount or not, the battles remain intriguing, just like the choice of weapons, special attacks (ashes), lightning counters, jump attacks, and “summons.”

    There’s a lot to say about this game that I haven’t covered partly due to character limitations in this review and partly out of fear of spoilers. But what I can tell you after spending a significant amount of time playing (besides the game being challenging) is that my death count has skyrocketed. Oh, you’re going to struggle, and you’ll die an incalculable number of times. You’ll become a bit of a masochist, finding pleasure in taking those hits and finally shouting with joy when you defeat that darn boss who knocked you out so many times you contemplated smashing your controller.

    It’s entirely fitting that Elden Ring was the GOTY 2022; it truly deserves it. And I’m glad I started the Souls journey with this marvel.

    Oh, not to forget, it’s undoubtedly the most ambitious project from the FromSoftware team, which even enlisted the services of a certain George R. R. Martin, the author of Game of Thrones, to shape the lore of its universe.

    Bitting More than you can Chew

    • Pros
    • Fluid Gameplay
    • Immense Build Variety
    • Expansive Open World
    • Cons
    • Repetitive Dungeons
    • Repetitive Bosses
    • Balancing Issues

    Elden Ring is From Software’s newest endeavor in the Dark Souls way of play, all the base mechanics are there, but now it is set in a Sprawling Open World set in a new Universe with its own rules and characters.

    It feels like a From Software game trough and trough, they used everything that made their previous games great and trued to expand upon it, but when you get to the nitty gritty it shows how the format fails in such a non-linear open world. The boss balancing feels off, you are either too weak and need to explore more or explore too much and bosses feel like just another minion. In the later stages of the game, bosses are just damage sponges that take a lot of time to beat, not because they are hard, but they just take that much damage. Of course with such an expansive open world with many things to find there are some truly out worldly builds in terms of damage but for some casual playtrough most are not ever going to find them.

    The main problem arises in the fact that the repetition in this game is insane, dungeons almost all feel the same, you fight the same boss numerous times throughout the playtrough and when you are gasping waiting for it to be all done you realize you are only halfway there, some may think that’s good, but it didn’t jive for me, I was just too tired and only wanted the end to come.

    All in all, Elden Ring is still a quite good game, but the formula just doesn’t fit such a massive world, a more linear and tightly built world would work better.

    This was my first foray into the soulslike genre and it was definitely a blast. Combat is tough and it takes a while to break the panic button spam habits of other games but once it clicks it’s great. Visually the game is superb and runs great.

    My personal downside was that the marketing implied a grand fantasy story with GRRM however this is not exactly the case. The world building is definitely there but told in such a fragmented way that there isn’t really a story in the typical sense. It works for the type of game so while not necessarily a downside it felt a bit misleading.

    The different classes and the multiple endings are making this game a re-playable giant.

    The bossfights… well let’s just say: It took me two days… but I love it. If your level is low, you can go and grind better gear and come back later. That’s what I did. Elder Ring gives you the freedom to fight bosses when you are feeling ready.

    Amazing entry for Soul-type game

    • Pros
    • Good graphics
    • Amazing gameplay with a variety of playstyles
    • Open-world game
    • Bug-free experience
    • Cons
    • Need a high-end PC
    • Can be difficult to get into for casual gamers

    I am completely new to Souls-games and I usually prefer playing RPGs on easy mode to fully enjoy the story without much challenge. Elden Ring doesn’t have a proper easy mode, but it allows players to progress at their own pace. During the first 12-14 hours, I mainly rode around on my horse, named Dolly, picked flowers, and only faced easy enemies. As I continued playing, I gained more confidence and realized that I could take down some smaller dungeon bosses because the game allows you to level up without tackling the major bosses. When I felt sufficiently strong, I challenged my first story boss, and it provided a fun experience—not too easy, but not overwhelmingly difficult.

    This is what makes Elden Ring truly great—you don’t have to be an expert Souls player to enjoy the game. You can take your time, explore the stunning world right from the beginning, and appreciate the scenery and smaller bosses. The game doesn’t force you to defeat a specific challenging boss to progress. If you find yourself struggling with a particular boss, you have the freedom to leave it for now and engage in numerous other activities.

    I also love the open-world design. Every corner of the world can be explored, and the game even rewards your curiosity. There are no pointless areas that waste your time, you always receive some form of reward wherever you go.

    Elden Ring is a very good game that not only deserves game of the year but is easily a candidate for game of the decade. Good gameplay, fascinating story, tons to explore, beautiful world, interesting characters, fair monetization, tons of replay potential, little to no bugs… Pretty much anything a game can do right, Elden Ring does right.

    Elden Ring and a quest for a break
    9
    • Pros
    • Immersive story
    • Unique mechanics
    • Adaptive playstyle
    • Skill variety
    • Multiple endings and story progression
    • Well made combat with well-registered hitboxes and hurtboxes
    • Cons
    • Weird low processing power compensation
    • Bad keyboard and mouse adaptation

    Elden Ring is a truly magnificent game, especially as far as Dark Souls games go. It manages to clench the satisfaction of getting through a tough zone or boss, while also allowing the player to take a mental break and go explore another area, one which might not make them want to kill themselves as badly.

    Onto the pros of this game. The story (though many may have skipped through all the cutscenes and gone on a hack and slash adventure) is amazingly written, allowing one to be involved in it and absorb it fully. To add to how complete and satisfying seeing the story play out is, there is also path diversion in-game. This means that the choices which you make throughout the game may alter whether some NPC’s are aggressive towards you, whether a certain quest to gain a certain ability or item is unlocked, or even whether you’ll get a fancy different cut scene when you reach your peak of serenity.
    The combat and playstyle are everything one could hope from a modern Dark Souls. Hitboxes that will carefully alter after a skill, either lowering it or raising it depending on your stance, even letting you hit “ever so barely” dodges that make you feel like a god for the whole 2 seconds until you get hit again. The thing that showed a huge upgrade in comparison to older Dark Souls is the sheer amount of abilities and weapons in this game. Be it Sorceries, Incantations, or even Ashes of War (essentially weapon skills), one is able to pick out every spell and skill they want to play to their enjoyment. You could be a melee mage, an archer, or a really fat man who belly flops on people.

    As far as the cons go, it is important to mention the game requires quite a lot of a computer. Sadly, in lower-specs, though, the game is very playable, since the impact isn’t felt most on framerate, enemies have a tendency to vanish. The more textures the enemy has, the more likely you are to give it a swing at air (it’s still possible to lock on while in this condition). Lastly, a never-ending horror from Dark Souls that clearly didn’t intend to be moved to pc, if you’re playing the tutorial in kb/m, good luck figuring all the keys yourself. After all, the game was made for a controller, so all the instructions on the ground refer to the controller’s buttons

    In conclusion, it is a truly amazing game, a great experience and a game with plenty of replayability thanks to all the playstyles and paths one can take. I, undoubtedly, recommend this game and say it well worth its prive
