Demon's Souls Dengeki Buyer's Guide Review


A bold game pursuing for the fundamental of joy in videogames.

This is an action RPG developed by SCE and From Software. Player must hunt down demons in order to save the kingdom. Information such as where you are supposed to go or how to defeat demons is intentionally provided in limited amount, so the player has to discover by try-and-error. This, instead of being nuisance, is the appeal of the game.
Also, for online co-op, there are interesting features such as leaving a dying message to leave a clue for other players.

Pros: Due to its high difficulty, there will be many unreasonable deaths, but because of that there is a big catharsis in finding out how to over come the obstacle. Control is very responsive and simple, so fighting against enemy is a breeze. Character making and leveling up give you a lot of freedom, so creating a character of your own is quite enjoyable.

Cons: You can't pause during game. Because of its serious and tense atmosphere and game structure, it's really not for casual gamers. (Demon's Souls, PS3) A/A

For those who can't see the link above
Here is the image.

I believe this game is mostly for hardcore From fans since the age of King's Field, and I can't wait to get my hands on it.

King's Field kicked copious amounts of ass back in it's day. I sincerely hope SCE releases this game in North America. If not, I'll be importing the English asian version. I cannot wait for this. The KF series was very much hardcore and there's no reason for this one to be any different.

Feel the same
WKC and DS are 2 of my most wanted games. Glad this game will be difficult as too many games are on the easy side. Don't mind a challenge and look forward to this game.

i don't trust Japanese reviews.... but my expectations for DS were quite low so this comes as a nice surprise
The gaming GOD  +   2441d ago
I don't trust reviews period, no matter what nationality they stem from
I ONLY trust my own opinion. Why people put more trust into "reviews" rather than their own opinion/ experience is beyond me.

If every reviewer on the planet gave KZ2 5/10 or 2/5 I'd still get it. Why? Simple. These "reviews" don't know you. They don't know your likes and dislikes. They're just people with opinions that get paid.

Besides, given all the controversies that have gone on with reviews why would anyone trust them nowadays anyway?

im sure this game is awesome in all
but wtf dude no pausing during in game play? how you supposed to save wut if you want to quit for a smoke break or bathroom break.. do you just let the enimies rape the sh!t outta you while your sitting on the toilet smoking? lol i mean c'mon man.

maybe the game will stop,or pause if you access the in game XMB.. it does that to alot of games so maybe this one.

either way i might just grab this either way for myself since they said its mainly for hardcore gamers as i am a hardcore gamer myself.

im just hoping for some more gameplay footy or something i can base my decision more off of.

"Also, for online co-op, there are interesting features such as leaving a dying message to leave a clue for other players. "

That sounds really cool.

I guess you can type a note to leave on your dead body saying how you died or where to go or something like that.

Really want this game!

The Asian version of Demon's Soul supposedly has english subtitles
INehalemEXI  +   2441d ago
Ooh your right it does have subtitles. Feb 5th thats perfect thing to play while waiting for KZ2 to release later in the month. That and the Kizzy 2 demo. Such a good month.

"it's really not for casual gamers"
3 cheers all around!~

Hardcore games rule :)
callahan09  +   2441d ago
This game sounds really great, actually. I liked reading their review, it sounds very intriguing to me. I like the online features it purports to have.
ganaeshd  +   2440d ago
This is exactly the kind of RPG I've been waiting for. Bleak, serious, and puts your strategic skills to the test. The art style gives me an Oblivion-meets-Berserk vibe. I'm getting tired of the generic, baby-faced, brightly-coloured JRPGs that's coming from Japan nowadays.

Now, all we need is a true next-gen Shin Megami Tensei RPG, and I'll be satisfied.
SaiyanFury  +   2440d ago
If you find you like this one, look back to the King's Field games on the PS1 and PS2. Some of the most unique RPGaming around and 3 of the best RPGs you'll play, period.
