Demon's Souls Review


Prepare to get your ass handed to you...and like it!

Like I said earlier, Demon’s Souls is hard, yet enjoyable. This is a game that gives a throwback to the games of the past that had only one difficulty and took skill and patients to complete. This game is not for everyone and caters to the hardest of...

Demon’s Souls


Innovative, immersive and unforgivably difficult. In the early years of gaming, a lot of games were tough by necessity. Arcade games were tough so they could munch more of your...

Fantastic immersion ; Great enemy designs ; Challenging, old school gameplay

Unwieldy targeting system ; Unforgiving difficulty will turn off many gamers

Demon's Souls


Rocky start

A very though game, immense feeling of satisfaction after each battle won

Slight physics bugs and very high difficulty that will frustrate most, but invigorate some

Demon's Souls was originally released in Japan in February 2009 by Sony Computer Entertainment who later stated that they had no plans of releasing the game in either the North American or European markets. Following its success in Japan, a relatively...

Demon's Souls


The experience to have with Demons Souls is a love-hate one. There will be a great fluctuation between anger, excitement, and joy. Overall it is a great game, probably one of the better games of 2009. It is a challenging game, not a game for casual...

Demon's Souls - PS3


King Allant the XII, the last king of Boletaria, searched tirelessly to expand his might. The Nexus, a great ice shrine nestled in the mountains, bestowed the power of the souls onto him, bringing prosperity to his kingdom. Still unsated, he returned...

Demon's Souls- PS3


Game makers put a lot of effort into getting an emotional reaction out of players. Devices such as a trusted animal companion biting the dust or your in-game girlfriend getting impaled are all there in an effort to make you “feel” something, to...

And that’s probably my favorite part of Demon’s Souls; a lot of stuff just doesn’t have an explanation, and carries that arcane, old-school vibe like the first time you saw an Eggplant Wizard in Kid Icarus. It’s those “What the hell is that?” moments...

Demon's Souls review


Demon's Souls, is an action RPG much like Diablo, Dungeon Siege and Dragon Age. Only compared to Demon's Souls, those games are for sissies. Demon's Souls is the one that's carved out of rock, and once you complete it, if you ever do, it'll make a man...

Demon's Souls


The first thing you get from Demon's Souls in its intro is a sense of bleakness. Then, during the tutorial that involves killing you, you get hopelessness. By the time you're actually playing the game you're probably suicidal.

Demon's Souls


Can a brutally hard game that relies upon nuance capture the attention of the average gamer? Demon's Souls asks this question by presenting a visually stunning game that is unforgiving but fair, while putting the sense of accomplishment back into video...

Demon's Souls


Demon's Souls is a game that sets you into a world in the midst of a terrible peril where mankind is plagued by demons that steal souls and leave the victims insane. Brave warriors attempt to quell the madness by conquering the demons and gain their...

Let's get the elephant out of the room first; in terms of difficulty, Demon's Souls is tougher than Chuck Norris' beard. Instead of making a game that is pad–your-walls, frustratingly difficult just to be mean about it, the developers thought things...

You'll need to buy a few extra controllers because you'll break a few trying to get through the first level. If you die, you go back to the beginning of the level with a fraction of your health. The co-op mode helps ease the pain, but there is no easy...

The gameplay holds up in the face of the unrelenting and brutal challenge the game presents, a large part in thanks to the neat design around the challenging difficulty. Souls seems like a direct assault on all the games that offer cushy deaths and...
