    All the best parts of Demon's Souls, and then some, but still room for improvement (SPOILERS)

    Dark Souls is the spiritual successor to Demon's Souls. It's a great game, and I'm not going to spend much time reviewing things that are the same from the first game. But I will make some highlight...

    This difficulty is so intense at times you will be determined to keep on playing until you get to that next bonfire.

    Good- You find yourself in a vast, amazing world will suck you into the game. Good, precise combat as well as fun, yet challenging boss battles. Many hidden features in and around that wil...

    This game is finished.

    This is the first game I have ever played where I couldn't even get out of the tutorial and actually get into the game. The Asylum Demon was utterly impossible to deal with and there was no game diffi...

    Dark Souls is an action role playing game that is the spiritual successor to Demon's Souls in name but shares the core mechanics of it. There isn't much of a story other then you are an undead in a la...

    After each death you learn a little more about this demented world- wish to learn more about and in turn, conquer it.

    Demon Souls has a small place in heart, even after it ripped it out and stabbed it repeatedly. It is no doubt that the game has made an impact with the industry with its hard difficulty and tough situ...

    Some great ideas and fulfilling gameplay, marred by frustration for the sake of being difficult. A good effort.

    Are you ready to die? Firstly, Dark Souls is an RPG, and it is not at the same time. Beginning the adventure sees the player given a myriad of options with character creation, a fairly standard...

    This game is going to steal 100+ hours of your life...but you will be okay with that.

    Let me start by just ripping off the few negatives I personally experienced within the game. The backstabs reign within multiplayer and in my opinion are too easy to pull off. If you don't hone your...

    Dark Souls is an unforgiving and fascinating game full of rewards.

    Rated on March 08, 2012 by mhaed

    Dark Souls is an amazing accomplishment and one of the few games that I was angry with when I finished it because I wanted more. Dark Souls plays almost identically to Demon's Souls. You are requir...

    This game kicks you in the nuts, over, and over, and over again. And when you finally get up. You die.
