What Gamespot Users have to say about Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition

  • User Rating 7.5

    Prepare to die is not a recommendation.

    Rated on September 01, 2012 by DownToOne

    Dark Souls – review Usually I'm not reviewing a game without finishing it first. I don't believe in early impressions in game review when I didn't taste the whole thing the game has to offer me. ...

    A terrible console port.

    Rated on September 06, 2012 by nofreenamesleft

    The console version seemed to be a really nice game, considering the release hype and the players' reviews. Because of that, I got really excited when the PC version was announced, just to find out th...

    If your considering buying this console port, prepare to die by how terrible it is.

    Thank you so much Namco, and screw you for making me waste 40 bucks on what I thought was going to be a great game. Now, I'm not saying it's bad. On the consoles its a great experience. Just don't buy...

    Fantastic game, with a dark and evil undertone that is just right for those looking for a gritty game with a challenge.

    As it is out of the box, or straight from the download, it is a mess. But it is two steps away from being a beautiful port of an incredible console game. First you have to download the latest dsfix, ...

    First of all, I'm not an experienced reviewer and my only goal is to help you decide whether you should or not buy this game(and I wont spoil much the game for you). Well my experience with this ...

    Love it as much on PC as I did on PS3. Must buy if you love a true gaming challenge. (do install resolution mod, though)

    Rated on September 06, 2012 by SirOlf30

    I played through the PS3 version several times and I still love playing it again on PC for at least another run. It's one of the most brilliant games I've played in years. Really sucks you in and make...

    Great, best RPG since Severance Blade of Darkness!

    Rated on September 06, 2012 by michelangelo197

    Challenging, would like to see some limb dismemberment and head decapitation if there's ever a sequel! Great game. I loved B.O.D So this is a welcome future addition. Once you have grasped the moves a...

    PC games are played with keyboard and mouse but no one told that to Namco Bandai. My list of keys

    Rated on September 11, 2012 by Xardas_1

    I change my rating from 5 to 8. It is 10+ game but somebody need to make a list of all keyboard keys combination and insert it in the game. I actually went through 60 hours of game play using keyboard...

    Its not perfect but I love it.

    Rated on September 09, 2012 by poypoy72

    So, I've been reading around the player reviews and though very hesitant to buy and play, this is what is my experience with the game. I literally just started playing the game on the PC. (I played...

    Prepare to Wait Edition

    Rated on September 07, 2012 by petar555

    Dark Souls is the best game ever, but the online experience is the worst, and now in the DLC they have the Arena which is pointless, you get nothing but a crown if by any chance after waiting long tim...
