Dark Souls


Dark Souls is a very hard game to review, it is extremely long, difficult, has many confusing systems that no one knows everything about yet and has

After thirty hours of play, many bosses and enemies lying dead on the floor, many of my own bodies lying next to them, treasure chests opened and some killed (you’ll see), this is a game that I cannot wait to carry on playing and enjoying and...

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...

Dark Souls Review - Frictionless Insight


prides itself on being the most difficult game in stores

Oh, yes. Dark Souls has a plot – something about the world filling with hollow men, undead who are imprisoned until the end of time, and a single hollow one who will fulfill a prophecy. Mostly it's about death. Your death. Over and over. Dark Souls...

Dark Souls


Dark Souls is a hard game. We all know this, and from the moment you slip the disc into your console, it'll punish you. A lot. But like a sadomasochist or a moth flying into a flame, you'll die, die, die, then die again, then die some more. But you'll...

Dark Souls could prove to be gaming Marmite for some players, who'll either love it or hate it. Dark Souls makes no bones about being unrelenting in its difficulty though, although it's by no means insurmountable. It's a rare game that's unlike...

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 Review


There are games that are made merely to entertain out of sheer simplicity, such as Tetris and Fruit Ninja Kinect; there are games that rely on creativity and introduce something new to the landscape, like the recently reviewed The Gunstringer and the...

As if the countless beasts and intricate trap rooms (one word when walking into a moving blade – OUCH) aren’t enough, you also have to contend with visitors that join you in multiplayer. In some aspects, they can lend a helping hand, guiding you with a...

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...
