Lives Up to Its Reputation of Being Difficult, but Just How Difficult?

Summary: While I admire the chilling atmosphere this game provides, you have better be ready to die and taken back to the beginning of said section at any given moment, because that is just what will happen.
Excerpt: Starting off dark souls you will be given the choice to build your character's class and structure. While it may lead you to believe that this will turn into a unique adventure the slight variation in character customization can't pull this game away from what hurts it the most.
Summary: I'm not a huge gamer, but a few times a month I might waste half a day or so dorking out on a rpg. I bought this on impulse because of the large text "PREPARE TO DIE"! They are not joking. I died 6 times in the tutorial. Yea I suck, whatever.
Great For A While, But Completely Loses Steam Halfway

Summary: First of all, don't just look at the star rating and freak out on me. Please read what I wrote first. The 3 star rating signifies how much enjoyment I got out of the game and is not meant as an objective measure of quality. Second, don't interpret the score as a bad review.
Summary: First off---Fun game! Fun!! (offline that is), like its' predecessor really tough, very challenging and if you liked Demon's Souls go ahead and buy/rent this game...BUT there are some differences.
Summary: i read all reviews and couldn't wait to start playing. however, when they say prepare to die they aren't joking! this is extremely difficult. its really a throw back to how hack & slash games used to be when the fighting mechanism was slow and awkward. suffice to say you die by merely a few hits.
Summary: Very difficult.Good graphics,good sound but both not the best.Frustratingly difficult bosses and very slow progress.The lack of story also is a minus.Generally you feel you are battling on without any cause.
