This game is now free in the Playstation Store for Playstation Plus subscribers. Go get it now if you haven't already. I just started playing again a couple of weeks ago and have fallen in love with the game all over again. Part of me wants to say that it's better than Dark Souls.
If you need help with any bosses or levels then keep an eye out for my soul sign: diskotheque. Add me on PSN and I'll help you out!
Re-playing this game! what an awesome experience :)
lol I remember when first playing this game and I kept dieing and starting over "WTFFFF STUPID GAME!!!" hahaha
I'd buy Dark Souls now but since shipping takes too long and my TTT2 is already on its way, it is gonna be difficult :P I'll eventually get it though ;D
Demon Souls will infect you, addict you, hurt and kill you and steal your soul in the end!! and you will LOVE IT!!
Joint best game ever made, coupled with Dark Souls, anyone thinking of get it just should, it'll change your life.
im thinkin bout gettin dark souls but was wandering if i need to get this one first ? what do you think ?????
Very fun game. Shame I got into it so late, though. There's almost no one online (my level), so the replay value kind of disappears.
Finished Dark Souls yesterday after almost 100 hours and loved it.
Not sure if I should get Demon Souls or if it is worse than Dark Souls and would be disappointed
@Ghost11 The boss battles are basically checkpoints. Once you beat them they leave an archstone for you to either return to the nexus or enter from the nexus. If you're having trouble beating a boss, try a different tactic, or just study his moves from a safe distance... (not saying you won't still get killed).
You don't need to play this one before Dark Souls. They're both amazing, and they are designed slightly different. Demon's has actual levels, or stages, while Dark is one. massive. world. You won't reach (or feel safe in) most areas until much later in the game. I suggest playing one, then playing the other.
I got dark souls before playing this and loved it so I got demons souls and I've almost got all the trophies i just got screwed out of a pure moonlightstone so if anyone can trade me a pure moonlightstone I'll trade a pure bladestone my psn is strokeman92
I just started this game... the very first level (not the tutorial lol) was ok in difficulty, but after that... my word! I hate this game but love it at the same time! :D
getting this today, can someone please tell me whats the difference between the "Black Phantom Edition" and the standard edition?
Just got this game the other night and it was an awesome experience. It's hard alright but once you get the hang of it, you can die less. :)
This game needs checkpoints of some sort. I don't mind playing a difficult game but when I have to grind through the whole level each time I wipe on a boss I lose interest. Defeats the purpose of playing a game; it's suppose to be fun.
@McCrunks don't give up, the further you go the more you will understand the mechanics and easier it will be
just bought today the Demon's Souls Black Phantom Edition and it is so awesome i need to shed some tears
just started playing this game today and kevin is 100% right in how difficult it is. i haven't lived for longer than 15 minutes yet. i'm a casual gamer and i'm not sure how much longer i can be frustrated by this one before it gets put on the shelf for good. dont get me wrong, the game is terrific looking and the gameplay is super smooth, but holy crap you absolutely have to do every single fight perfectly to get anywhere.
i´m borrowing it from a friend, can´t wait to play it. I got too damn excited after saw the Dark Souls review.
008Agent, you CAN play the game without connecting to PSN, which will leave you at peace from the other players. Problems? Can't blame it on the others then when you suck?
@jpm1276 Just picked it up cheap. Awesome game! Get it son!
"it'll change your (life)"?! Yah right, how? Think long a hard before you answer.
@Dr_Vash13 its 2 game with 2 unrelated story, ds 3 does have better combat system and ui as a whole though
@Gadeos Buying a PS3 was a desicion I will never regret.
@bugside I also played Dark Souls first and Demon's Souls later. In spite of that I thought Demon's Souls was still F-ing awesome.
@Humorguy_basic isnt Dark souls the one that coming to PC or this too ? would be epic
@Humorguy_basic I think you're a little confused.
This game will never make it to PC.
@McGuirex3 @Kraakdoos umm... He probably won't answer, since the post is almost a year old. However, you should give both this game, and Dark Souls, a "long and hard" play-through. Hopefully, you will understand afterwards. BTW, good luck. If this isn't your deal, then you're in for one helluva one-sided shouting match. :O -> ;]
@dreamchaserwu cheers :).
@NormaDean I actually ordered Demo's Souls from Amazon a few days ago, can't wait.
After Dark Souls all other games seem like child play, From Software might have broken us.
@bugside Demon's is great, and at the same time it is very different from Dark Souls and has it's own identity. Not gonna lie I tried to compose a list of my top 10 favorite games the other day, and honestly it goes Dark Souls, and every other game I've played.
