Demon’s Souls

D+PAD

  • 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...

  • 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.

Demon’s Souls

  • Excerpt: Thankyou very much Namco Bandai! Why ? The life I once had has now been consumed by Demon’s Souls for the PS3. It’s been awhile since an RPG has captivated me so much and Demon’s Souls has done just that in this well made and sickeningly addictive and quite challenging title. For lovers of Western RPG’s, Demon’s Souls is just that which boasts a grounded story, a logical control system and an RPG tree that isn’t menus and inventory slots which go on forever.
