Elden Ringthe latest jewel of FromSoftware, is one of the highest rated games of all time. It’s unheard of on OpenCritic with a score of 96/100 and it’s even better on MetaCritic with an average of 97/100. The recent Horizon Forbidden West (which received very complacent ratings in France by the way) is very far with an average of 89/100 worldwide. Without going so far as to do a press review which would take far too long to write here, we note that almost all of the critics/testers praise the sublime artistic direction of the game, its sense of mystery and the epic, a system of demanding combat without being as off-putting as that of the Souls, a perfectly calibrated game design and a great diversity of enemies and environments.
In short, it’s the total, and this avalanche of praise comes to crown a lot of work by the studio to reform itself constantly and not to become encrusted in a fixed formula nevertheless praised (sometimes with a bit of snobbery) by the hardcore fans of the Souls and Bloodborne. Elden Ring will be available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, and PC tomorrow Friday, February 25.
