You gotta love Demon Souls.
OK, so I've never written about a game on this page before. And to say that after over 1.5 years thAt I want to write about Demon SOuls. Speaks volumes about how good this game really is.
To be sure, when it recieved the GOTY 2009 award from gamespot I was dubious. I mean, Uncharted 2 was jaw-droppingly gorgeous and MOW2 is addictive as hell. So WTF were the gamespot editors thinking picking this nobody game that no one had ever really heard of?
And then I picked up a second hand copy and started playing it about a month ago now I guess. Well, I don't think I was ever as nervous playing a game for the first time as I was with this one (there was a lot of mysterious bulid up, about it being super hard, etc. - which it is by the way).
I must admit that I wanted to quit several times and move on to another easier game, but I've persevered and now am over 50% through the bosses and build my character up to around level 45 after around 50/60 hours of playtime.
So Europe, enjoy this game when you get it over there this year. It is definitely, definitely worth it!! (P.S. - Meat Cleaver ROCKS!)
