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...

As the spiritual successor to one of the toughest titles of the next generation, Dark Souls tests the might of anyone willing to give it the time and effort needed to best this unbearably difficult game. Developed by the guys at From Software, Dark Souls is not the direct follow up to their previous...
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...
High marks for an old game.
on June 02, 2013 at 08:15 PM
So I was really surprised how much I was disappointed in this game. First, it had absolutely nothing to do with the difficulty. In fact, it's not really hard. It feels exactly like the old nintendo days where it was just trail and error over and over until you got it. Think Mega Man, Castlevania...
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...
The hardest game this generation is one of the best games ever.
on February 26, 2013 at 11:28 AM
Dark Souls is hard... really hard. But I love it. The game looks beautiful, the gameplay is fantastic and the game can be quite scary. There was only one issue I had with the game and that was the frame rate would drop during areas with lots of enemies, which was really quite annoying. But is this game...
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...
Dark souls is a must buy, and one of the best games ever.
on November 09, 2012 at 11:40 PM
Saying dark souls is hard is an understatement, This game is nearly IMPOSSIBLE, But is that a bad thing? No. Dark souls takes place in the wonderfull, yet doomed kingdom of lordran, where you start off in an undead asylum, of course as an undead. And as you make your way through you fight (and kill)...

Unbelievably Difficult but Amazingly Rewarding
Servant of God
on September 18, 2012 at 05:14 PM
Demon Souls was an R.P.G. that defined the rewarding aspect in the difficulty of gaming. With every boss came a key to the next challenge lying behind that corridor. Every enemy gives you the resource you need to improve, souls. This idea is restated in Dark Souls, but it is also improved upon to the...
The most brilliant RPG ever created
on September 16, 2012 at 07:00 PM
As long as I have been playing video games, no other game has left me as overwhelmed by its atmosphere, stunned by its design, or enthralled with its gameplay as Demon's Souls. I played it about a year after it released, and it instantly shot to my "Top 5 Games I've Ever Played" list...
A game that finally proves difficulty can be fun
on September 15, 2012 at 03:34 PM
Within the first few minutes, Dark Souls shows its difficuly, quickly punishing every mistake you make with death after death. That is what makes this game so amazing, taking down a single enemy is satisfiying. Each has it's own attack patterns with weaknesses and strengths. Figuring out how to best...

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...
Further Details in Addition....
on February 12, 2012 at 11:44 AM
I agree with Phil's comments and most of the other reviews. Trying to figure out which direction will lead to further advancement in the game is almost impossible without looking at the walk-through, and it is possible to drop or have Frampt eat a ring that will limit your chances for progression...
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...
