You need balls and skills to play as a rogue in Lords of The Fallen.

For many Lords of The Fallen will be seen as an easy Dark Souls clone and cash in but if you can get past that early impression Lords of The Fallen is a worthy addition to the action RPG genre. It is a more accessible and straight forward game than its inspiration but at the same time is often a more fun story with engrossing gameplay. This is My Scrambled Thoughts on Lords of The Fallen.
