Any game can deliver a few cheap scares. It takes a special one to terrify you. Dark Souls is such a game. It's a thoughtful, atmospheric, and mysterious role-playing adventure that challenges your mind and your mettle. It takes the concepts of deadly...

Dark Souls- PS3

 

I'll be the first to admit I have a problem when it comes to games: I'm a gaming masochist. The first thing I always do is crank up the difficulty. But I wasn't prepared for Dark Souls, the spiritual successor to Namco Bandai and From Software's...

Dark Souls is difficult to describe without waxing poetic in the length of a small novel. There are so many small, intricate details to praise. These little things add up to a game that is truly epic in scope and offers a feeling of accomplishment...

Think games are too easy now days? Well Dark Souls is here to punch you in the face.

Dark Souls is not for everyone. Most casual gamers will be frustrated by its punishing difficulty. There are times where Dark Souls isn’t even fun, it’s a chore. But it’s because the game is so difficult, so punishing, that you’ll savage each...

A challenging game proves worth the effort.

On a certain level, the frustration resulting from the overall lack of direction, or even explanation of what exactly you should be doing, aside from dying, can be construed as sloppy design. (The occasional frame-rate hiccup in the 360 version—the PS3...

Review: Dark Souls Shines, But You May Hate It

 

Those with the patience to wrangle with From Software's latest will be richly rewarded.

Dark Souls might not be for you. Of course, that's not saying much; thanks to the universal rule of, "there's no accounting for taste," even the most lauded games have their detractors -- and on the same note, altogether crummy productions often earn a...

I never thought I'd say this about a video game but if you're not careful, Dark Souls will take from you your will to live. It's unforgiving, frustrating, and won't hesitate to punish you severely for making even the smallest mistake. If you die you...

Dark Souls is a twisted, depraved, unforgiving bundle of death, hopelessness, and despair, and I mean that in the best way possible because if you can overcome the many, many obstacles it will throw at you over the 20+ hours it takes to complete, you...
