Dark Souls Playtest: A Dance Of Trial And Error

 

Dark Souls is a game where everything is earned and learned through trial and error.

11. In Demon’s Souls, if you attack an NPC for any reason, they become hostile to you for the rest of the game. Dark Souls has a remedy for that. You can talk to a certain Pardoner to absolve all your Sins; this neutralizes all NPC hostility at a very...

After ten years of writing about games professionally and three decades playing them just for fun, I don't get intimidated easily. But all that changed with Dark Souls. Having not played Demon's Soul, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. All I...

Remember throwing and almost breaking your controller as a kid due to losing or dying? It seems for me that Dark Souls has brought many of those old feelings to the surface as there was a few times I felt like launching my controller off the balcony....

"Prepare to Die", "Prepare to Die Again" and "Prepare to have the next few weeks of your life consumed with thoughts of Not Dying". Dark Souls' motto is a bold statement which epitomises the essence of the game. Yes you die often and in punishing and...

At its most basic level, Demon's Souls was about being slow and methodical; watch, learn and adapt to the enemies and their layout or fail. Dark Souls carries that philosophy forward as a spiritual successor to Demon's Souls. Not being a direct sequel...

Dark Souls Review

 

I know I'm supposed to love Dark Souls for its modernization of old-school video game challenge. I agree that the rest of the game industry could learn something from this medieval action-RPG and make their games a little more difficult in what Dark...

This kind of frustrating repetition was fine when I was a kid and would get home from school and just play for hours without a care for homework or chores, but now, I require just a little more motivation to keep me coming back - especially as an adult...

Dark Souls - Xbox 360 review at Thunderbolt Games

 

Demon's Souls gets a bit of a bad rap, if you ask me. It's damn hard, to be sure, but it never crosses into the realm of cheap dickery - every death could usually be traced back to some mistake the player made. It rewards patience and technical...

[There's been a lot of confusion as to whether or not reviewers have actually beaten the game - so here goes: I completed Dark Souls at Soul Level 77, after 37 hours and 10 minutes of play - for reference, I beat Demon's Souls at Level 76, at 22 hours...

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...
