Dark Souls (Xbox 360)

 

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 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...
