Summary: After having played 'Demon's Souls,' I felt that other videogames, which had originally entertained me, became stale, lifeless shells that held your hand every step of the way. This is why, when I saw the trailer for a game that looked similar to Demon's Souls, I immediately looked it up to find that it was indeed a spiritual successor to the original. Demon's souls had been my favorite game of all time, and when I finally was able to play 'Dark Souls' I was enthralled.
Summary: Dark Souls was the first of From Software's creations that I ever played, and I was hooked instantly. Never before had I played a game that was so terrifying, not purely from how dark and sadistic the game was, but also from the fear of dying around the next unknown corner. The game was a marvel to me, and although it took some work to get adjusted to the punishing gameplay, in the end it was all worth it when I finally lit the final bonfire after defeating the final...
Summary: Alright what can I say about dark souls that you probally have not heard? This game has a amazing story, while it does not throw the story into your face you take it in as you progress through reading item descriptions, Dialogues with NPC's the enemies themselves. This game is truly a masterpiece filled with Helplessness but also great achievement when you overcome it.
Summary: First of all, everybody has got it wrong:this game is NOT hard-it's tedious. The hardest thing about this game is the bosses, and they're really not that hard neither. The tediousness of it is having to run for 5 minutes just to fight the boss everytime. It's easy to get there, but when the sprint is slow as dog crap and your dude runs like he's on sand, it gets a annoying real fast. This game eats away your life, and you get almost zero fun factor in that time.
An experience. What you make of it is up to your skill (plus a player hint mechanic)

Summary: I like it so far. I have not completed the game, and I can honestly say this game is the hardest I've ever played. I'm more of a casual gamer, usually patient, but this game definitely had me frustrated. However, this was in no way the fault of the game, for the game has brilliant depth for those willing to push on after countless deaths.
Summary: I'm a late comer to Dark Souls, but it was recommended to me by some trusted sources, so I gave it a shot. On the whole, it did not leave me disappointed. To be clear, this is most definitely a niche game. Not everyone will like this game. If you're the sort of person who likes a game that is *very* challenging, a game that makes exploration very much a necessity to continue, and a game that makes you figure things out on your own, this is definitely a game for you.
Summary: "You see, I resisted Dark Souls partly because people kept telling me, 'It's good once you're used to it' and I've always held that the same thing can be said about being boiled alive, so I'd ask them to explain why it's good and they'd reply, 'Ooh, we can't tell you. You'll just have to find out for yourself.' And then I'd say, 'Shut up or **** off, ideally both, in either order!
Summary: One of the best games I've played. A bit too challenging even when you're playing it all over again. Great game mechanics & amazing story. I would recommend having the strategy guide, simply because there's very little direction as to where to progress in the game. Open world and all is really good, but mixed with the difficulty of the game is not that enjoyable.
