Summary: I'm still in the process of beating this game but after 45 hours of gameplay I feel I am equipped enough to write a decent review. If you have read any review besides mine I'm sure your well aware of the difficulty of this game, so I'll try to offer some fresh insight to the games experience and why its not as great as everyone claims. This game had tons of features that are a complete mystery to beginners unless you look them up online.
Summary: I got this for the 360 after my BF3 buddy started playing it religiously. I got… maybe 10 hours through the game, which took me about 50 hours to do, and I had all I could take. The game itself is simple and straight forward. I prefer a bit more complexity, but every so often simple is refreshing.
Summary: This game is by far probably the harderst game I have ever played. The storyline is pretty cool, the graphics nice and the sound is decent. The only problem is that you die over and over again. Now dont get me wrong the game is fun, up until youve had enough. If you die you respawn at a campfire, but have to fight you way through all the enemies you had already beaten again which makes it frustrating.
Summary: When i got bored of easy games like Skyrim and got bored of playing FPS i was looking for a challenge.So i had my eye on this game for about a month and saved enough money for it. When i first got into the game and created my Wanderer i killed the first boss easy but then i got taken to that Land of the Gods. Once i got their difficulty went up darasticly it didnt even get me prepared for that kind of difficulty.
Summary: How can people even compared this game to Skyrim? This game has nothing on Skyrim. Plus they are 2 totally different games. Skyrim blows this game out of the water. So after playing Skyrim for bout 200 hours i had my eye on this game. When i got this game home and started playing i was kinda of dissapointed. To me it's it nothing but a dungeon crawler. If your into hack n slash games then by all means get this.

Summary: First off, THERE WAS TOO MUCH HYPE ABOUT THIS GAME FROM PS3 OWNERS. Now, I'm not knocking the game by any means when i say this...But Dark souls is truly meant for those of you who are "hardcore gamers." And what do i mean by "Hardcore Gamers?" I mean the following: The unemployed, those of you still in school who are less than stellar achievers and any other people with way too much time on their hands to burn that I didn't mention.
Summary: At first this game was very, very fun and i enjoyed playing it, but when i got to the third check point it just dropped the fun and i havent played it for a week. The lasting appeal of the game drops a lot and is not a game that someone would want to waste $60 on to get it. I would deffinatly buy another game like Battlefield 3 or somthing that can last more than a day of playing it before it gets old.
Summary: After reading a few reviews on this game I decided it was worth it to pick up at my local redbox. I already knew it would be a challenge but that's what I looked forward to after so many mindless shooters out right now (and while waiting for Skyrim of course). Starting the game it feels a little like an advanced Oblivion, until you come upon the bosses. The game has no real "pause" menu so when your in it, your in it.
Summary: To all the hardcore gamers that say this game is great because of how hard it is I say: sometimes a challenge is a good thing but not when you have to waste hundreds of hours of your life to do it. I appreciate the game makers attempt at creating an atmosphere of not insulting the gamer's intelligence by making the game too brain-dead easy like many games are nowadays; however this game is overboard on the difficulty scale and will take way to much of my time.
