Uh Dark Souls 1 is by far the cheapest of all the Souls games. Like I have said on this forum many times I don't recall Dark Souls 2 relying on passages that were paper thin in multiple locations, invisible walkways, archers firing lances from so far away they wouldn't even load on screen, or ass loads of lava being patrolled by dinosaurs that one or two shot you. If I had to rate all the souls games up to this point Dark Souls 2 would not be the one on the bottom and the vast majority of it's critiques are coming from gaming hipsters who say Dark Souls 1 is the greatest because it is popular to do so while they also can't be bothered to even try Demon's Souls to begin with.
Long story short. Dark Souls 2 is a great game. If you liked Dark Souls 1 or Demon's Souls you will like it. Unless of course an illogical map layout is your idea of a make of break game feature.
And PS: The guy who made that video is the last person you should talk to about anything relating to a Souls game.
