Did any critics agree with Elden Ring? So far, the lowest score we have seen so far is a 9 or 90, so no, it does not look like it at the time of writing. Finally, we have yet to see the general consensus from the players. The game is sure to be under scrutiny from long-time Soulsborne fans, hoping it is compatible with previous FromSoftware titles.
It’s time to die.
Decide, the whole verdict on Elden Ring is clear: this is potentially one of the best games ever produced, with widespread praise across almost every outlet.
Though reviews are subjective, they differ from others. If you like Soulsborne, or simply want to know what’s all about it, Elden Ring appears to be the ideal place to start.
