Demon's Souls may sport English in-game text, voice acting and instructions for those of you who import the Asian version, but in the end, the game doesn't provide enough bang for the buck. Although the game occasionally sports some decent visuals, it's a dingy dull look title for the most part with a control scheme you will either love or utterly hate. It's also a wildly unbalanced game sporting many "new features" for an action RPG that might have sounded good on paper but provide some serious issues when it comes to actual follow-through.
Still, the game boasts one of the best and most helpful fan communities out there for an import title, and you'll be hard pressed to find a more import friendly title for the most import friendly console of all time. Demon's Souls isn't a top tier title, but it does have its moments.
