Like the original, DS2 fails to be exciting in any manner, even though I'm usually fan of RPGS and games where creatures explode in a colorful shower of blood. The game is so very simple and unchallenging for the most part that I'm half-asleep when I try to play it and when I wake up, I'm seeing this teleport screen caused by death as I'm sent back to nearest village, from where I have to run back to where I died, collect my worn equipment that were conveniently left there and resume. There's little if any challenge besides some boss creatures, the rest of the mobs die from simplest touch in gory shower of gibs. Effectively it's a shmup in the guise of an RPG.
