User Review

NintenDan, Walmart
14 July 2013
  • 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.

Addictive but unfair

Subject7, Amazon

  • Summary: On the positive side, the combat system is fun. The tools at your disposal are vast and ranges all manner of melee weapons, armor and magic. The possibility of being invaded by other players at any time is exciting and the online pvp is incredibly addictive. But... Dark Souls is challenging in the same way a fight with a world champion would be if your hands and feet were tied and someone sprayed mace in your eyes. Suffice to say, it can be a little unfair.

Started out great.... but then....

  • Summary: Dark Souls is actually an awesome game. So why did I rate it so low? The fact of the matter is that the gameplay is fine, graphics are as well as was anticipated and it does draw you into the story. However this is where the game took a turn for the worst. As a casual gamer I play for enjoyment and this game is definately not enjoyable after about the first fifteen to thirty minutes.

Fair, but seriously overhyped

Gandalf86 , GameStop

  • Summary: Yes, it's a hard game. Yes, I love a hard game, where you die alot and get frustrated and finally have a sense of accomplishment when you beat the area. But, in all honesty, this is not a fun game. I spent over 14 hours playing without ever being interested in the story. Character development is pitiful. For starters, after about 10 levels, all the starting characters start to look the same.

This will make you cry like a small child that's not allowed to get its own way

Rich Williams "whiskeyjack", amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: Buy this game if you want to scream, cry and bang your head on your TV. Graphics are poop, story is a bit poop, and difficulty is a big pile of steaming dino-poop. I may be terrible at computer games, but this is ridiculous. Ramping up difficulty levels so that you can only get through playing them countless times does not make a game good. This game should be renamed to 'do not expect to have any fun'.

For those who don't like "grinding" .. rather a "No"..

  • Summary: After all, reviews should be information for those who are about to purchase something if it suits your needs.. This game did not suit mine, maybe it would suit someone elses but not mine. I didnt like "World of Warcraft" also and apparently a lot of people did/do.. So here my review for the casual gamer that doesnt like grinding.. I had to admit i was buying this game due to a recommedation and regrettet it.

Bad edition

Kaam, amazon.co.uk
14 March 2013
  • Summary: The two stars are for the edition, not the game. The game is one the best I have ever played in my 20 years of gaming. I finished it six times. I love the game so much I bought this limited edition even though I already had the Prepare to die Edition. I bought this limited edition mostly for the making-of. I wanted to know more about the geniuses behing this masterpiece.

Not for me

Jimbo_01, amazon.co.uk
11 November 2012
  • Summary: Bought this game on a recommendation after enjoying Skyrim and Dragon Age. The first thing I found irritating about the game was the lack of saving opportunities. If you frequently die (which I did) you have to replay the same part of the game over and over again which becomes pretty boring. I never really got used to the controls and couldnt get into the story.
