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.
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
Hardcore gamers only = amazing
If your begging for a challenge this game is for you. Beware use a manual otherwise you will spend 2 days trying to beat one level.
The most epic, fun game ever!
I have played this game so much, and it never gets old! there is a challenge on every level that will test your strengths and weaknesses in the game. The level cap being 712, you will be playing for weeks apon weeks apon weeks but it never gets old! Hands down the best game ever made. Action and challenged packed for hardcore gamers. Brutal and rewarding, what else could you ask for in a game?
This game is awesome !
Really great game! A must have for PS3 owners! I basically love every thing about this game like the graphics, music, and game play. The story is very simple but good.
