Demon's Souls Review

New Game Network

  • Summary: An action-RPG that takes no prisoners. It's bold, brutal and brilliant, but certainly won't be to everyone's taste despite its undeniable quality

Demon’s Souls

D+PAD
8 November 2010
  • Conclusion: It is rare to play a game that makes as many brave design choices – and that attempts to introduce so many new concepts – as those on show in Demon’s Souls; it’s rarer still for a title to pull these decisions off quite so effortlessly and with such cohesion. From Software, however, have managed to do just that and in refusing to compromise their vision have hewn a spiky, engaging, challenging and magical experience that breathes fresh life into what can be the stalest...

Demon’s Souls Review

Zeitgeist Review
8 July 2010
  • Summary: Well, that was one HELL of a week playing through Demon’s Souls . I put this title off for far too long and I’m really happy that so many of you kept hounding me to get on this bastard. For only 15 bucks, you really can’t beat the price as long as you’re willing to really get into it and deal with some serious frustrations along the way! Even after all of the crazy hard enemies, bosses and players who jumped into my game and ganked my ass, I still loved it.

The Aesthetics of Ruthlessness

7 July 2010
  • Conclusion: Dead enemies getting stuck to the player's shoe?
  • Pros: Nightmarish art design, gameplay that feels both revolutionary and reactionary.
  • Cons: Laying awake at night and plotting revenge.

The fruition of a dream three generations old

The Sirens are Calling

7 July 2010
  • Conclusion: That dragon just sat there and let me shoot it with 250 arrows.
  • Pros: Clinging to the tiny sphere of light surrounding my character, squinting in a futile effort to penetrate the blackness that threatened to swallow me whole.
  • Cons: Being one-shotted by a demon's sword that clipped through a pillar and being forced to replay the entire stage.

Demon's Souls

Playstation Illustrated
4 July 2010
  • Excerpt: Demon's Souls walks the line between great and not-so-good visuals. The overall atmosphere is, for the most part, the game's biggest plus in the graphics box. Though levels retain the now-standard-for-this-generation dark, gritty look, they help sell the experience. As much as I would like to see green grass and blue skies, doing so would kill the game's thematic concept. Each of the five worlds offer their own unique set pieces.

South Park: Imaginationland

Square-Go
2 July 2010
  • Excerpt: How do you take the filthy, graphic, absurdly hilarious South Park and turn its mini movie series “Imaginationland” into a game? Have Butters bounce around collecting rainbows via the power of his imagination, of course…. Starting each stage setting the power of your imagination, you must then alter the angle of imagination to fly and bounce around (using the power of your imagination) to collect rainbows and save happy Imaginationland from evil Imaginationland.

Brilliant, extremely difficult, violent RPG in bleak world.

Common Sense Media
2 July 2010
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Demon's Souls is a game for mature players who love the challenge of an extremely difficult video game. It's not merely the copious amount of blood that's a concern here and the smaller enemies that fall like rag dolls at your feet, it is also that this game has a very depressing vibe. This is one of the hardest games created in recent memory. Because you constantly die, it can break the spirit of even the most seasoned gamer.
