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.
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.
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.
Summary: I bought this game after being told by various people that I should get it. "oh it's super hard!" "You die loads!" "You get lost all the time!". I love a good challenging game where I have to work things out for myself rather than the mass of single path 'hallway' games that get released in...
Summary: I enjoy playing games. I enjoy games like many other people do, through the medium of enjoyment. This is not an enjoyable game. You die and you die and you die and then you get a tiny bit further and then you die and you die and you die again and your inner monologue is screaming "WHY ARE YOU DOING...
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.
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.
