Summary: I seriously regret ever buying this game. No sane normal human being can play this game. I can't even get past the 2nd area of the game. Games should not be this hard, they should have a difficulty setting so that each player is comfortable. It really restricts certain gamers from enjoying it because of how hard it is. It's not really realistic either.
Summary: This review has nothing to do with the quality of Dark Souls as a game, just the packaging. The item listing should have noted in description and image that this was going to be a red label greatest hits edition. As a collector, these red labels are an eye soar, and not as appealing to own as the original black label. Not only that but the disc somehow came loose inside the box so the disc was being rattled around all throughout shipment...lame.
Summary: You're much better off buying buying the original november 2011 disc as this one comes with patch 1.05 and you can't use dragon head stone to level up anymore. This game is pretty glorious and fun at lv 700, still challenging but not designed to make you die. 'Cause that's the problem with this game, devs made you severely underpowered and underleveled wich results in unbelievable grindfest.
Summary: I heard so many good things about this game & so I was looking forward to playing it,That was my first & only mistake. People everywhere say that this game is hard & will take ages to complete.Personally I think the hardest part of the game is getting the plastic cover of the game case to get into the game,once that's done the rest is simple,In total it took me about 2 hour to complete the game & the gameplay in my opinion was awful.I can't believe I wasted £ on this...
Summary: I'm going to lay the facts down for you so you don't have to bother with the fanboy reviews ok? Trust me it's easier that way. Let me start off by saying this: THIS WILL BE THE HARDEST GAME YOU WILL EVER PLAY. At the beginning you may think "this is not so bad I don't know what the fuss was about" like me but then you'll die. "That's okay I read about this so I'm prepared and it can't be that bad right?" Wrong.
Summary: terrible, challenging gameplay was fun but everything else was just poorly designed making the game very alienating couldn't emerse, tried to play online... dont even bother takes ages to right the in game item required and will disconnect u and ur friend at every opportunity, its a single player game despite the lies it tells u about multiplayer online
Summary: Although I'd never give the original Dark Souls a measly one this edition is broken or at least it is for anyone who's played the original and wants to carry a saved file over. To cut a long story short you can't unless you've downloaded the DLC rather than bought the PTD physical edition. A simple google search will reveal many have this problem and it clearly hasn't been patched either.
Summary: You'd expect that you could continue with your old character and save file, right? Well, think again as From Software and Namco Bandai doesn't want to respect old fans who want a physical copy. I reckon it wouldn't have been too hard to make old saves compatible for this physical copy. It's very ridiculous that if I download dlc then my old save will work, so it doesn't make any sense at all.
Summary: This game is for people who have lots of time and lots of patience. You can only save your progress after around 30 min. of play and if you don't nail the bosses you have to start all over again. The manual is ridiculous, and you need to consult youtube just to know how the humanity feature works and how to aim with a bow. Because you cant aim with a cross bow, you just waste arrows if you try.
