  • Summary: From Software's Souls games have been near the top of my games-I-should-play list for quite a while. I can't recall ever talking with someone who's spent time with Demon's Souls , Dark Souls , or Dark Souls II without hearing them gush over the series, and though the games have a reputation for brutal, unforgiving difficulty, I jumped at the chance to finally experience what makes this series so special.
  • Pros: Frightening, imaginative monsters, Skill-based combat that rewards patience
  • Cons: A leveling-up system that's equal parts unsatisfying and confusing, Obscure (or non-existent) explanations for key gameplay elements, Molasses-like skill progression, Indecipherable story

Dark Souls

True achievements
18 October 2011
  • Conclusion: Dark Souls is unforgivably brutal and will punish the slightest error with instant death, but when the player drops that boss that has plagued them for hours on end and stands triumphant finally, the feeling is unparalleled within the gaming world. But do not let that feeling engulf you, because the next encounter will prove to be even harder but the payoff is that much greater.

Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls

Square-Go
16 October 2011
  • Excerpt: For those unaware, Wizardry was a long-running series, with 20 years between the first in 1981 and Wizardry 8 in 2001. Knowing of it but not how long it ran, the closest thing to it we remember was Dungeon Master on the Atari ST. Both see you stepping through a grid-based dungeon one square at a time and turning in 90-degree increments.

Tom's Games
4 September 2012
  • Summary: Si la Prepare To Die Edition est à la fois l'occasion d'avoir Dark Souls sur PC et de profiter de contenus additionnels, on ne peut passer sous silence les errements techniques honteux.
  • Pros: Un monde ouvert passionnant, Richesse de l'aventure, du scénario, Des combats exigeants, Un nouveau chapitre réussi, Merci le mod de Durante !
  • Cons: Une catastrophe technique, Aucune amélioration (collision...), Injouable au clavier / souris, Problème en ligne avec le PvP

  • Excerpt: Ju större utmaning, desto större tillfredsställelse när man lyckas uppnå sitt mål. Sedan har vi de fall där utmaningen är så stor att man misslyckas. Välkommen till Dark Souls. Den andliga föregångaren, Demon's Souls till Playstation 3, hyllades för att den var så otroligt svårt och alldeles lysande.
