Our Elden Ring Review
“Elden Ring is an amazing video game. The journey into the Interregnum is one of the best experiences the entire medium has ever seen, characterized by a great vastness and an even greater desire to explore up to the last corner of the game world. The amount of things to do is substantial enough to put your hands in your hair and then bring them back to the pad and see more and more. The combat system that made From Software deserving of its fame, is further redefined, presenting alternatives for every type of player, and although the difficulty is at the highest levels, there is no shortage of ideas for those who do not want to lose patience with a boss.”
