    Dark Souls' PC port delivers what was originally requested, namely the experience of a game beyond our age.

    A bad port to a bad game... let the hate commence!

    Graphic whores are crying, Rpgers are delighted.

    The best RPG ever released on the PC. Dark Souls is brutal, immersive, beautiful, sinister and tons of fun. The game was ported from consoles to PC and it shows in some areas like the lack of gamep...

    Dark Souls: Prepare to Sleep Edition

    Rated on August 25, 2012 by Vicestab

    This game is a waste of time and money. Here's why: - Litte to no checkpoints makes you replay the same sections before a boss, and once you die to the boss you have to replay all of it again. -...

    Despite some disappointing PC port problems, the game below the surface remains amazing as it ever was.
