  • Summary: Wow ! Super Hard game ! ;) I guess it will take some time to get used to it. I died a bunch of time in the first 15 minutes. Got a great deal on this game via EBAY so I can't complain.

I finished it.

Brian C. Curtis, Amazon

  • Summary: I am writing a post because I have been reeding the rest of them. I've finished this game, and only because it has the best fighting mechanics of any game I've ever played. Besides that, it is the most un-intuitive game I've ever played. If From Software had put any effort into explaining anything, it would have been funner. I started with the deprived guy, because at first he looked like he had better stats, well......

Can see why people are die hard fans but fell a little short for me...

  • Summary: Won't make this long winded. I'll just talk about the short falls for me. It's everything the positive reviews state. Hard, engrossing, fresh, enjoyable, frustrating, etc. Nice change from the RPGs we've been fed for years (20+ years for me as a hard core gamer of all types). Now the down falls. If they were going for an ultra realistic (as much as fantasy can be) game, they nailed it to a fault. You're thrown into a game with absolutely no direction.

Great concept/atmosphere; lacking in some areas

  • Summary: I own an Xbox so I never got the chance to play Demon Souls so when Dark Souls (DS) came out I wasn't familiar with either. I don't game much anymore so my naivety didn't surprise me. Anyways, I read a few reviews discussing Dark Souls' brutal difficulty and I figured why not challenge myself. Pros: 1) Atmosphere. I love how the world of Dark Souls makes me feel. The world is bleak and depressing (usually) but also one of absolute wonder.

Good, but overrated

Matt B, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: This is a fairly good game, but just gets overrated. A shame, as I really wanted to like this game. Graphics are quite nice, although nothing outstanding, and your typical medieval/fantasy type setting provides some nice scenery. Most of the map is very detailed and has many hidden areas that should keep you busy for a long time. The fight system is the real meat of the game, and while good, it takes time to understand.

Only buy if you ENJOY repetition and failure

Jamie Firth, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: The game is very much old school. If you like that sort of thing (which I do sometimes) then it is a very good, atmospheric game. However if you like games that reward experience with increased power and ability this is possibly not for you. The game is 'on rails' in that you will meet the exact (and I mean exact) same opponents every time you die and re-go through the levels. I imagined from the reviews that this would be expansive, creative and immersive gaming.

Love it as much as skyrym. Now hours in..

  • Summary: I've left my original review but now feel I have to down grade the game. I played demon souls and completed it. But darks souls is for me proving to hard. Unlike demon souls it does not allow you to take a fast or slow approach to bosses. Leaving in many cases no where to hide and chip away at the boss. This is either dodge or die in many cases. Not good if your not fast on the buttons. Plus rewards are harder to get to upgrade weapons.

Fruatrating but worth it.

  • Summary: For the time you put into the game playing through the same combat sequences it can be fun, although it can get frustrating attempting long sessions.

Everything you've heard is true...

Ed209, amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: Now, I consider myself to be a pretty competant and patient gamer, willing to invest time and effort in a game- no just in for the quick hit, nosiree, not I. However, it's pretty fair to say that Dark Souls has BROKEN me, and I'm really not sure if this makes for a good game or not. Plus points- the game looks terrific and more to the point really pushes a unique look and atmosphere- art design in the game is wonderful, and creates an immersive and melancholic feel.
