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.
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.
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.
Summary: Lost two stars for a major flaw. Everytime you die you lose all the souls and stats that you have gained up an till then so if you dont find a campfire to level up and auto save your fresh out of luck.
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: 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.
Summary: The hardest beast of a game you probably ever will experience. No helping hands to get you levelling up. Expect to restart your whole character at least a couple times, just because you have used to much of the precious humanities to survive.
