    Worst combat of any game out there

    I dont get how this game is 9/10. The combat is so awful I will never buy this game or recommend it to anyone.For instance, when trying to block and walk backwards, instead of walking backwards and blocking, my character... Read Full Review

    Great game

    I never played the original but this version is great. There are clearly some areas where FromSoft picked up their game in later Dark Souls and Sekiro games, but it is more than just an homage to a prior game. It played ... Read Full Review

    Demon's Souls is the best in the Souls series

    The first in the franchise of Souls, a little crude and simple, but still 'The Best' compared to the rest of the games that came after it. Graphics were great and controls were simple yet effective, making it get to the ... Read Full Review
