Elden Ring is a massive iteration on what FromSoftware began with the Souls series, bringing its relentlessly challenging combat to an incredible open world that gives us the freedom to choose our own path.

The melee conbat is brilliant because of the depth it has and how many different weapons and Ashes of war to chose fromThe performance on the PS5 version I have been playing could be improved but doesn’t take away too much of my enjoyment.The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild set the mark for what an open world game should be and Elden Ring has built upon those stepping stones and improved upon it. It has surpassed Breath of the Wild in my opinion, but botw is still an absolutely brilliant game and still one of the best. Elden Ring will be talked about for years to come and will never be forgotton.

Is very beginner friendly, but has yours ways to gate-keep content, putting very strong enemies to protect certain areas.The sound design is superb and the world is vast and mysterious.10/10 One of the best games i ever played.

Here, exploration is everything. Elden Ring is an RPG but one which elevates role playing to the point of vérité. You are as much the stranger in a strange land as your avatar; basic controls and some mechanics are explained in what passes for the game's tutorial, but that’s about it. There’s no quest log, no icon-studded mini-map, no on-screen overlays or bread crumb trail telling you what to do next, or even where to go. Everything else must be learned, either decoded from oblique item descriptions in-game or gleaned from invaluable internet communities. Death is not so much a setback to be avoided as a necessary staging post on the path to enlightenment. It may sound daunting in theory but in practice it’s exhilarating. Every inch of progress in Elden Ring feels earned, and is thus infinitely more rewarding for it.

Elden Ring is not only the best game FromSoftware has released to date, but it's also one of the best open world games I've enjoyed in recent years. We are facing a title that manages to perfectly mix each of its elements, and the results really could not be better.
