This is one of the best RPG's I've ever played. But it is only good for hardcore RPG fans. If you are new to the RPG genre this game will chew you up, spit you out, and grind you into the ground. The graphics are stunning, as are the music and sound effects. Game play is for the most part fluid, but farming for upgrade stones and souls can take a toll on your patience. All in all I enjoyed this game immensely and am looking forward to the Dark Souls sequel.
how to give yourself a migraine
Demon's Souls is a game that absolutely loves to punish you and the game kicks off its relentlessly unforgiving behavior as soon as you put the disc in the tray. But don't get me wrong despite its difficulty Demon's Souls does deliver, its story is interesting, the combat and gameplay are fluent and very responsive unless your like me and hit the heal button by accident every five minutes, and with a game like Demon's Souls wasting health is probably not the best way to progress. In my opinion Demon's Souls is a game that we can learn to appreciate, a game that drops you in an area with little no guidance, and half of your health expecting you to prove that you don't need a health bar is clearly a game that does not mess around considering the fact that most enemies take off half your health in a single hit, but I degrass. All in all if your looking for a game that asks you to bash your face into a brick wall till either you or the wall are still standing then Demon's Souls is perfect for you.
One of the best games i have ever played. Rewarding challenging deep dark emotional and satisfiying.
Among the Best of Current-Gen Games!
Demons Souls is many things, but the one thing that jumps out at you immediately is the difficulty. To simplify things, I'll say this.
Demons Souls is brutal! But your deaths are due to your mistake! You must adapt to certain parts of this game.
The sounds are epic, just like the music should be when fighting a dragon, and the clanking of swords in combat.
The graphics are extremely detailed and beautiful, but expect the occassional frame-rate drop, as alot can take place at one time.
If you are a casual gamer, skip it.
If you hard-core looking for a hard-core challenge, I can't suggest enough owning and beating this game!
prepare to DIE!!!!!
For those weak of heart dont try this. But for those who are strong prepare for the best RPG until dark souls. you WILL rage quit you WILL return to finish. this game will chew you up and swallow you. Be ready for any and every death for you see in this accursed Bolotaria none shall survive.
Difficult but rewarding game.
I am not going to bother repeating everything that everyone else said, but I wanted to add something that people may not know. According to the box internet connection is required to play the game, BUT it turns out its only recommended, for those that are hesitant to get this game because of that fear no more. It has a offline mode as well, all you have to do is sign out of PSN or unplug your Ethernet cable if your running wired.
My Favorite Hardcore RPG
The idea of this is genius. When you die, you turn into a spirit with less health, fighting stronger enemies. It's a blast traveling through the world of Demon's Souls and trying to find new places to go. I would suggest buying a cheap controller though, because your nice ones may get broken in a fit of rage. Anyways, pick this game up, play it, cry when you die, and play it more.
this is one of the hardest rpgs ive played but still fun anyway, you will die constantly, if ur a casual gamer, this game will chew you up and spit you out.
Beautiful and Brutal
This game is not for people who hate dying every 5 minutes, it's got traps, enemies that pop out of nowhere, areas where you're going to be getting shot at from the air so often you'll have trouble knowing what hit you and from where. I picked this game up as a strictly casual gamer; I enjoy a challenge while I play, this is true, but this brought a whole new level to it. I was reminded of days playing the original Megaman games, I continuously died, and yet couldn't stop, I was hooked, every single death I suffered only served to make me MORE determined to get to, and beat the next boss, if only to prove I'm tough enough to take everything that level has to throw at me. This game is more than worth it, whether you be casual or hardcore gamer, however, don't pick it up if you don't ENJOY difficulty.
If you want an easy game, keep looking
Amazing game that's also very challenge, yes rewarding. If your looking for a great rpg and are prepared to die alot, then you cant pass up this game
