  • Excerpt: Prepare to die. Has an interesting ring to it, huh? A game that teaches you the old school way, Dark Souls is not for the weak of heart, and provides a challenge for even the most hardened veterans of gaming.
  • Pros: Challenging gameplay focused on learning enemy’s attacks and slowly progressing. Great replayability.
  • Cons: Has a high learning curve. Not a “casual” game.

  • Conclusion: Underneath the port inadequacies is a masterful piece of design; intricate and drenched in woe. Dark Souls is infuriating, but well worth the investment in time and shattered patience. There’s only one way to know for sure, and that’s to experience Dark Souls for yourself.

  • Excerpt: I’m about to admit to something that, in many reader’s minds, will serve to discredit my reviews: I don’t finish the vast majority of games that I critique. Further, there are some few games where I don’t even make it to the half way point.

It's skeletons will slice you to pieces, bores will impale your organs, and rats will infest you with disease.
