"...there are similarities between the two games, but they’re limited to common inspiration (the mimic and medieval history), the attempt to portray armor and weaponry in a fairly realistic manner, and the fact that they both feature dungeons and fantasy monsters."

Pretty much. I don't see why people are calling it a clone or whatever when we still haven't seen that much.

PSVita987d ago

The only ones comparing deep down to DS2 are the ones that have no clue about Demon Souls.

Ripsta7th987d ago

Isnt demon and dark souls made by the same developer? Either way i lt doesnt matter its suppose ti be medieval. They cant be wearing space suits and about to go fight a dragon -__-

Daoshai987d ago

Yeah, demons souls and dark souls are basically the same thing. Just a name change because Sony owned the name.

"The only ones comparing deep down to DS2 are the ones that have no clue about Demon Souls."

...or Deep Down. I agree, two very different games with similar art style and artistic influence. Two games I'm very excited to play :D

The people downplaying Deep Down as a DS clone are those who aren't getting to play it. They're trying to downplay it because it looks badass.

I beat Demon's Souls and Dark Souls. Deep Down obviously borrows heavily from them. Your comment makes no sense.

PSVita987d ago

@frostypants- From software co delveloped demon souls with SCE Japan but didnt own it so they basically made the same game but with a different name and without Sony (Dark Souls).

So to say deep down is a DS copy is pretty dumb given the the same studio that started it all, SCE Japan, is making Deep Down.

Yes they're they're very similar but no ones copying anyone because they both made the first game.

Deep Down reminds me more of Dragon's Dogma than Dark Souls. Even though the helmet does look like Demons/Dark Souls.

Bimkoblerutso986d ago

At the end of the day it just doesn't matter one way or the other. I don't think anyone is going to complain about a game drawing inspiration from Demons/Dark Souls if it's done right, and Deep Down is looking very, very right.

CuddlyREDRUM980d ago

I found Demon's Souls to be trivial and easy. Very disappointing and overrated game.

Amusingly, the Mimic creature is the only 'real' similarity that they have, in that they are the exact same thing. A somewhat 'out-there' monster, though not outside of the stereotypical tropes of fantasy rpgs - They HAVE been seen before Dark Souls...

Armour/weapons ect, go without saying. It's a Medieval Fantasy RPG...

The mimic in Dark Souls scared the **** out of me,I wish Deep Down gives me the same experience as well,though I got to say,while the Mimic DOES look more detailed in Deep Down,it's still scarier(design-wise) in Dark Souls.

Larry L987d ago

Yeah, Mimics are a very old creature design. Much older than this author states dating back to Final Fantasy (.......which is funny because I don't believe Mimics were a FF creature, were they? I wonder if he's considering the "monster-in-a-box" treasure chests to be Mimics?) I remember them being in the original D&D Monstruous Compendium, which was from like.....late 70's. And I'm sure just like most Dungeons and Dragons creatures, Mimics were a much older and already established idea that was put in that game. The design was pretty much exactly the same in old illustrations as it is for Deep Down and DS.

Pretty much ALL creatures in this style RPG video games are based on D&D designs which were based in turn on Tolkein, which in turn were based on older mythical creatures........and so on it goes down the line.

DragonKnight987d ago

Mimics were in a couple of FF games, most notably FFIX and FFX.

@ Mechlord
Crap, those things were tough. I remember having to farm them for special sword.

reaper24987d ago

Well, I made a comment about that mimic and even got a bubble down for saying that they look kind of similar. I don't know enough about the game to say if it will be good or not, but it seems that saying your opinion here will get you downvoted.

Great article, but I think I just got hijacked. :/
