Dark Souls: Artorias of the Abyss

oxmonline.com
9 November 2012
  • Excerpt: A whole year after Dark Souls launched, this downloadable add-on is here — and given the game’s extreme challenge and depth, that makes sense. Rest assured, Artorias of the Abyss is strictly for experienced players: merely accessing the new area requires you complete roughly 30% of the main game and use your favorite wiki to figure out how to get there.
  • Pros: + Awesome new characters, gear, and spells., + Lore and tone fit perfectly with the rest of the game.
  • Cons: ? Why troll players who beat the final dragon boss with a ring that cripples them?

  • Excerpt: You are going to die. I'm sure other Dark Souls reviews have begun like that – hell, the game box tells you to prepare to die – but it simply cannot be stated enough. This game does everything within its power to kill you, and kill you as often and as quickly as possible. Something on the order of the fourth or fifth lesson in the game's tutorial is being surprised by a boss-level monster that can kill you very quickly. Not a one-hit kill, but often within two.

  • Conclusion: Dark Souls is probably one of the best games of 2011. Its dark corridors holds plenty of mystery, dangers, and treasure to keep you playing the game for a long time to come. It will challenge you and even try your patience, but if you stay strong you will be rewarded for your efforts. We highly recommend this game to anyone looking for an amazing RPG experience.

Just make sure you know what you're getting yourself into first, lest this game chew you up and spit you out.

Dark Souls Review

PlayDevil
18 November 2011
  • Summary: " Dark Souls " is not an empowerment fantasy. To even stand a chance within its grim world it is necessary to grind and die again and again. When travelling any of the wide variety of paths through Lordran’s open world any lapse in attention can be lethal, even in long forgotten ‘low level’ areas. What Dark Souls does so perfectly though is provide the kind of challenge older gamers may feel has been missing from recent generations of games.

  • Excerpt: Hand holding. From fellow soldiers yelling what buildings to blow up to breadcrumb trails of collectables in platformers, the majority of games proverbially hold gamers’ hands even if we don’t realise it. This is where From Software’s Dark Souls is different from most – after a brief run down of the controls you’re dropped into a large, open world and left to figure things out for yourself.

Dark Souls – Review (Xbox 360)

Gametactics
24 October 2011
  • Conclusion: This is a pretty good game that will have you cursing it and praising it through out your time with it. The only big issue I have with the game though is the difficulty and this game should only be approached by those with patience and the will to fight through the fantastic world of Lordran.
