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...

Dark Souls (PS3) Review


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...

Ah, Demon's Souls. The 2009 action RPG that slowly became a cult classic, known for its brutal difficultly.and unique online multiplayer, took the hardcore RPG players for a long, rewarding ride.

Challenging combat ; Rewarding game play ; Wonderful atmosphere ; Unique online experience ; Amazing attention to detail ; Tons to do and explore

Camera can become bothersome ; Enemies sometimes have an unfair advantage in some combat situations

Ah, Demon’s Souls. The 2009 action RPG that slowly became a cult classic, known for its brutal difficultly.and unique online multiplayer, took the hardcore RPG players for a long, rewarding ride. It was a game that no one really knew about, and most of...

Dark Souls


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...

Dark Souls has consumed our lives, and it's finally time for us to tell you our final verdict. Are you prepared to die?

Dark Souls


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...

Dark Souls


Think games are too easy these days? Think again!

I can't remember the last time I became so massively engrossed in a video game. Once you get a taste for Dark Souls, it is extremely tough to stop. The thrill of not knowing what lies ahead, the overwhelming joy in defeating a huge boss, and the...

Dark Souls (Xbox 360 / PS3) Review


Thinking of braving the hallowed halls of Dark Souls? Then you best be ready for a fight. Dark Souls will easily dominate your gaming skill making you submissive to its will. It's a ritual in frustration, yet one that is worth the journey, if you are...

Smart, challenging gameplay ; Great A.I. - fight every fight like your last ; Uncanny atmosphere built on despair, fear and anxiety ; Massive creatures and memorable bosses ; A complex system that is worth investing in

Respawning enemies!! Even after you save ; Devilishly hard and frustrating ; A little more direction would have been welcomed ; Online integration is sporadic

Dark Souls creates a one-of-a-kind world based around fear and despair. A world that mysteriously begs for your attention then punishes for every step you take. Dark Souls isn't a game for everyone, only those with a yearning to succeed through...
