This game wrecks Sykrim.
After having a traumatic experience with Demon Souls, I was expecting another terrible experience with this game. After dying for about a few hours, I finally got a hang of the game and made significant progress with the main story. This game lives up to its promise, you will die and die a lot. However, that gives the game a hardcore RPG experience unlike any other video game. If you are looking for an intense RPG, then this is for you!
Perfect game for a true gamer
this game called Dark Souls is a game that has various strategies, is a game where you fight with demons and dark knight this game is good only for true gamers and really this game have the places combinated is not like demon souls , demon souls if you whant to enter to another place just you need to enter in a rituals like the first ritual Boletaria. I recommend this game to many people.
this game is hard but so fun..i havent rage quit yet because i like these kind of challenges...oh and have fun levelig u because the level cap is 710...but all in alll a very rewarding and unforgiving game..no flaws really.....it just really hard
Prepare to die!
I love this game. I've played on 9 different characters and accumulated over 300 hours of play time. At first, I almost quit because of the challenge. Then I realized I was just being an idiot and I wasn't playing the game correctly. The graphics can be iffy in the Blighttown area, but that's it. The PvP can be laggy but that's something I don't care about. You're going to die. You're going to lose a lot of "souls"(currency in the game). You think losing your 2000 souls and 1 humanity is a big deal? Try losing 99 humanity and 3.5 million souls, then you're allowed to complain. You're going to die over and over again before finally realizing "Wait this is how to beat this guy!" You're going to kill the boss. You're going to feel accomplished. You're going to get your face smashed in by the next area because of your confidence level. Don't complain about the challenge. The back of the case literally says "Prepare to die". If you aren't expecting a challenge, you're just an idiot. This game is really not for the faint of heart. It's a challenge that most people aren't used to (meaning it's harder than recruit mode on CoD). I just can't believe how many stupid people gave this game a low rating. They clearly didn't play it while expecting a challenge. Definitely would recommend this game. I'll leave you with one piece of advice: Prepare to die!
prepare to buy a new controller!
this game is fun but very very very very hard. i havent had to buy a new controller yet but my brother has broken three just on this game!!
Takes me back...
Both Demon's and Dark Souls take me back to the early days of gaming. The days when developers DIDN'T rely apon mindless violence and cliche servings of "adult material" to distract the consumer. A time when developers made games to challenge as well as entertain, when the game itself (rather than the developers expensive lifestyles) is what mattered. Demon's and Dark Souls are definately NOT for the shallow instant gratification types. The only entitlements here are challenge, sorrow, anguish, and death, anything else you have to earn with wit, skill, and relentless devotion.
One of my favorit games
This game is amazing but I admit it is not for everyone as it can be brutally difficult at times. But that in no way stopped me from having a great time with this game.
Breath of fresh air
Definitely a breath of fresh air in a market saturated by repetitive games. Upon starting this game you will realize that you get virtually no help, which can at first turn new players off from the game, but after getting used to the game play, navigation, and combat you'll realize that this is definitely one of the best games you'll play for the PS3.
Words can't even describe...
This is the best game I have ever played. That's saying a lot. But about these people rating it down just because it's hard, that's what the "This game is perfect for hardcore gamers" section is for
It's not hard, if you take the time to learn.
I'm a causal gamer that is increasingly getting more into games. Dark Souls is one of my bf's favorite games so I decided to try it. It is really difficult at first because it seems daunting. You should get familiar with all your buttons and controls, early on in the game. Also know how to use your menu in the top right corner. Just experiment, that's what I did. Once you get the hang of it, it's not as hard as it was in the beginning. It's a game that requires patience and you have to work for your reward. It is not self explanatory so you really will have to think, amd figure it out. But definitely give this game a try but don't give up! -Linda <3
