Dark Souls

Destructoid

  • Summary: First, allow me to begin with a caveat; I have not completed Dark Souls . I have invested over 90 hours of play into the game, exploring the vast majority of its world and facing off against (if not defeating) many of the boss enemies. I am confident that I am capable of rendering a fair verdict based upon the knowledge I have.

Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition Review

GamerNode
31 October 2012
  • Summary: From Software's effort on the petition-inspired PC version of Dark Souls, aside from the new Prepare to Die Edition content, was less than what fans had hoped for. Having solidified the game's excellence a year ago, however, expanding its content can only serve to enhance players' experiences with the game as a whole, and as add-on DLC for home consoles, it's hard to press for anything more.
  • Pros: Incredible depth of play, Fierce challenge that isn't cheap, Learning the game world, then building a character, equipment loads, and skills around that knowledge
  • Cons: Technical hiccups like throttled resolution and frame rate, Poor PC controls essentially require purchase of a USB controller

Dark Souls

Playstation Illustrated
23 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Few games leave me as torn as Dark Souls . The game is incredibly hard - almost to the point where it is soul crushing. At the same time, there's a fun sense of achievement weaving throughout the entire game. Every death is a painful chance to learn something new about the game's mechanics. But, this sense of achievement is fleeting at best, often times leaving me wondering if its worth the countless deaths and frustration. Dark Souls is an amazing looking game.

Expert Review

13 May 2009
  • Excerpt: Dark Souls is the debut Japanese-style RPG from Warfare Studios. It was created using RPG Maker XP and boasts an extensive amount of detailed custom sprite work and a cool anti-hero protagonist to complement its traditional music and gameplay. Dark Souls has some impressive components, but it falls short of the standards set by its contemporaries such as Eternal Eden, 3 Stars of Destiny, and the Aveyond games.

Dark Souls 2: Ein guter Tag zum Sterben

Spieletipps.de
17 March 2014
  • Summary: Dark Souls 2 sieht optisch nicht mehr ganz zeitgemäß aus. From Software holt aus den Grafik-Routinen des Vorgängers heraus, was möglich ist: beeindruckende Lichteffekte, Stoff der sich bei jedem Schritt mitbewegt, ordentliche Wasserdarstellungen und anderes. Doch trotzdem seht ihr der Grafik die Jahre an. Gerade an Stellen, wo der Entwickler die optischen Unzulänglichkeiten nicht so gut kaschiert wie im Vorgänger. Vorgänger Dark Souls beschäftigt mich bis heute.

Dark Souls - Artorias of the Abyss

25 October 2012
  • Summary: Primo DLC per Dark Souls. Ne vale la pena?
  • Pros: Mostra la trama di Artoryas, Quattro boss ben realizzati, Battere il Drago richiederà tante ore di esperienza
  • Cons: Artisticamente poco ispirato, Frequente sensazione di già visto, Scorre facilmente, regalando con difficoltà qualche emozione, Poca quantità in relazione al costo

Dark Souls

  • Summary: Einen Überraschungshit zu landen erweist sich oft als zweischneidiges Schwert. Diese Erfahrung machten auch die Entwickler von From Software, nachdem ihr Spiel Demon´s Souls zu Beginn des Jahres 2009 in Japan veröffentlicht wurde. Ohne große Werbekampagne entwickelte sich das hammerharte Action-RPG innerhalb weniger Tage zum Verkaufsschlager.
  • Pros: Unglaublich dichte Atmopshäre, Es gibt viel zu tun!, Interessantes Kampfsystem
  • Cons: Besonders anfangs extrem verwirrend, Kein Voice-Chat im Online-Multiplayer, Für die meisten Zocker viel zu schwer
