Bringing Difficulty Back From The Dead
on August 18, 2014 at 12:50 AM
Decaying, hopeless, and alone is how you find yourself at the very start of Dark Souls. The introduction to this brutal game acts as a foreshadowing for the emotions that players will feel from the very start as From Software delivers one of the hardest retail games to date. From the outside the game...
Dark Souls Review: A World of Wonderful Hurt
on December 10, 2013 at 05:07 PM
Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE What? Dark Souls is hard? No. It's the toughest game of this or last generation? Bah. Playing the game will make you want to snap your controller in half? Come on. The thing is, all those things are true. Dark Souls made me want to throw things and swear...
Dark Souls Review- A world of hurt awaits
on September 05, 2013 at 07:10 PM
I’m making my way down a corridor, having prepared my spells, weaponry and gear for this specific area. I have two co-op partners I summoned for the occasion, one who is a mage, and a heavy hitter with a dragon’s head. I’m just about to go into the final boss area when a player who...
Dark Souls Challenging and Fun
on June 09, 2013 at 10:38 PM
After hearing so many people at uni discussing a difficult game called Dark Souls. It was a dark and stormy day when my friend sent me a message over Xbox Live demanding I play this game which disciplines the player for every mistake. After battling through the rain to my local store and found that they...
Dying is Such Sweet Sorrow
on May 16, 2013 at 01:20 PM
The tagline "Prepare to Die" describes From Software's Dark Souls aptly. This RPG set out to capture the difficulty of older games and does so in the best way possible. Every new enemy sets players' jaws wary and demands attention as they approach, wondering what kind of death awaits...
SHORT Dark Souls Review
on April 30, 2013 at 07:54 PM
When I saw the trailer for Dark Souls II during VGA on spike, I suddenly got very hyped even though I'd never played Dark Souls, so I got it. The game is amazing, but very hard. Here are the details. this is the best fantasy / role playing game to date, but then add extremely difficult enemies that...
Dark Souls: classic difficulty for a new generation
on February 13, 2013 at 07:36 PM
There were so many times playing through Dark Souls that I wanted to chuck the game out the window. There were so many times that I had thought I had experienced the worst that it had to offer, only to be greeted by another room of pain and suffering beyond that I'd yet seen. But then there were...
Review: Dark Souls
on September 09, 2012 at 12:48 AM
Normal 0 false false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE This is my first review. I don't know much about reviewing games but I did my best. Prepare to Die. Again and again. Dark Souls, From Software’s spiritual successor to Playstation 3 exclusive Demon’s Souls, is an intense third person...
Dark Souls: You'll Die and You'll Like It… Mostly
on July 31, 2012 at 11:31 PM
This review was done on Xbox 360. As a player who never played From Software's Demon's Souls and grew up with turned based RPGs (most heavily based on Dungeons & Dragons), Dark Souls comes as a breath of fresh air, if inhaled through the blood filling your mouth from the game punching you...
I was not ready for this.
on February 08, 2012 at 06:03 PM
Never before Mirrors Edge's speed runs have I played a game that required such precise timing and perfection. Dark Souls is a relentlessly difficult game and the player will be fully aware of this within the first 15 minutes of playtime, they will fail and die, a lot, over and over again. I can't...
Punishment and Gaming Discipline
on November 08, 2011 at 05:44 PM
It's been a long, long time since I could say that I've beaten, let alone played an RPG. My days of Zelda and Fire Emblem are long behind me, left in the shadow of an Xbox 360. I've been spoiled by the easiness of the shooters such as Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto, Left 4 Dead, and other...
Death is Only the Beginning
on October 25, 2011 at 04:21 PM
I will not hide it. Demon's Souls has probably been one of my top 5 games to come out in the past two years. Something about the game just resonated with me. From the medieval/fantasy setting to the gut-wrenching difficulty the game was on another level when it came to drawing me in and making me...

Dark Souls Review
on October 12, 2011 at 02:38 PM
Didn't like it. I rented this game from Redbox to see what all the hype was about. I played for about 3 hours and got through the prison and the castle with the red dragon on it. I think I got like 60G of achievements. What I didn't like is the degree of difficulty. With every boss I died at...
Dark Souls is a great game
on October 10, 2011 at 11:12 AM
Great game. The gameplay is solid and rewarding and the graphics are very nice and detailed, but always dark. I gave it a 8.5 because the game is honestly incredibly hard, for me in my opinion, and it's honestly the same gameplay over and over again, but it is always new and exciting.
Not a bit of let down..
on October 08, 2011 at 11:30 AM
I have been looking forward to this game since it was announced. I have not been let down one bit. Demon's Souls is in my top 3 of PS3 releases to date, so this game was at the top of my list for upcoming games. I have not been let down, they stuck to the formula that worked and tweaked just enough...
Dark Souls: Holds No Hands, Pulls No Punches
on October 07, 2011 at 06:20 PM
From Software's unforgiving venture into the world of Demon's Souls was an unforgettable experience for all. For some, it was the ultimate test of patience and skill, yet for others it was merely an exercise in controller breaking rage. For me it was the former. Love it or hate it, it was something...
Ouch this hurts!
on October 04, 2011 at 10:38 PM
Dark Souls , in one word, would have to be: The hardest game ever. Alright that's four words but don't pretend like I never said them. This game will test your patience to no end, but will reward you with a sense of satisfaction that you really can't get from other games out there today....
