Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition (PC)

ccgr.org
2 October 2012
  • 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.

  • Conclusion: More so than many other games, Dark Souls is something that is difficult to adequately explain second-hand, and you really need to play for yourself to feel how satisfying its many moving parts connect into an unforgettable game.

  • Excerpt: From the infested swamps of Blight Town to the pristine palaces of Anor Londo, the trials of Dark Souls offered a cavernous adventure filled with secrets, innovation, and, of course, death. Less than a year later, the game is summoned once again to do battle on the PC.

Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition review

Gamedot
4 September 2012
  • Conclusion: There’s a basic premise with a film or a book that the whole thing is intended to be seen or read, or the story isn’t finished. Dark Souls does the opposite. Not only have FromSoftware realised that many people will never make serious progress in the game, they’ve integrated that very idea deep...
  • Pros: Intensely challenging. Excellent, consistent world-building. Great new solo content.
  • Cons: Poorly implemented online play. Very basic port from console.

Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Review (PC)

Yet Another Review Site
27 August 2012
  • Excerpt: No story, tough combat, sheer learning curve – and yet, one of the best games of this generation. So, Dark Souls, the console “classic” RPG widely considered to be one of the hardest games this generation – From Software even subtitled it “Prepare to Die”.
  • Pros: Deep, immersive world, challenging to the nth degree, unique in both gameplay and outcome, clever, layered combat and response, reliant on learning and reflexes, one of the ultimate gaming rushes, with no peer this generation
  • Cons: Story is throwaway, challenge will put many off, no help for beginners, as it relies on learning for yourself, out of the box experience is terrible

Dark Souls: Prepare to Die (PC) Review – Fix the Bugs Yourself!

GamingTrend
20 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Let me start this review out with a confession – I am a huge fan of both Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls. The first was the game that got me back into PS3 gaming for good, and entertained me so much for so long that Dark Souls became a day one purchase for me on the same console.

  • Excerpt: Som japanske utviklere flest, virket det ikke som From Software var klar over PC-ens eksistens som spillplattform. Men etter lanseringen av Dark Souls skjedde noe uvanlig; en gjeng spillere satte i gang en underskriftskampanje for å få en PC-versjon av spillet, og ikke bare det: From Software lot...
