Elden Ring Review: A Fistful of Frenzy
I’d like to get this out of the way up top—Elden Ring is easily one of the greatest video games ever made. From the game’s rich and dense open world, cryptic narrative, and (mostly) tight combat, to its better-than-ever multiplayer functionality and largely optional difficulty, Elden Ring is satisfyingly complete and one hell of a bang for your hard-earned buck. The action RPG is a thrilling next step for long-time fans of Hidetaka Miyazaki’s and FromSoftware’s work, while simultaneously providing a jump-in point for series newcomers. That’s not to say the game is without its flaws and inconsistencies, but I’ll get into the details below. Although it may sound hyperbolic, Elden Ring, is the culmination of everything From has done to date, and is truly one of the most outstanding examples of the art of gaming I have ever experienced.
