Score: 10

Quote: "Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree is everything users want and desire. A perfectly orchestrated masterpiece by FromSoftware that leaves me with the strange feeling of wondering, is this really a DLC?"

While most of our community won't understand the review because it's in Spanish, we checked it out and were very amused by the title of the article: "Analysis of ELDEN RING: Shadow of the Erdtree - Can a DLC be GOTY?".

Score: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Quote: "Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree is an incredible expansion and a worthy follow up to the generation's best game. In some ways, it's better than the original by providing an experience that's both tighter, but also more than double the length we expected."

Reviewer: Brendan Lowry

Score: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Quote: "The Shadow of the Erdtree DLC is Elden Ring at its most refined, with overly formulaic elements of the base game's open world design cut away and some of the most exhilarating boss battles in the entire FromSoftware Soulsborne catalog."

Reviewer: Tamoor Hussain

Score: 10

Quote: "It's dark fantasy done masterfully; rich in detail and intricate in its construction; a place that feels dangerous and cruel, filled with memorable characters, fascinating rules, mind-bending concepts, and competing ideologies."

We're very happy to see that FromSoftware has done well by us all, and we can't wait to see what else they've got in store for us in the future!
