Gamer Limit Review: Demon's Souls

Gamer Limit writes "Demon's Souls is perhaps the most satisfying game of its generation, but its uncompromising nature will only appeal to players of a particularly masochistic bent."

There's nothing like a ridiculously difficult game to wake you up in the morning :D

You will die, a lot. But that's half the fun (and the joy when you manage to survive).

I hope that this game garners relative commercial success in the West. It's a totally under the radar gem that really deserves it, much more than the tripe we're fed on a monthly basis by larger publishers.

I'm on my 3rd play through. And just to give you some idea, I NEVER play a game again once I've finished it. I think Heavenly Sword was the only other game this gen that I've played multiple times (only because it was so cinematic and gorgeous). There's just this addictive quality to Demon's Souls that makes it utterly compelling to play.

To think that this is from the same company that gave us Enchanted Arms (and the original King's Field series, so I guess they have a decent pedigree).

When do we get this in America? I've heard so much aboot it that I really want to play it now.


Myst2892d ago

Fall '09 is what to expect no other date has been given that I know of though.

So hopefully E3 will give us a date.

Mine shipped from yes asia's german warehouse this morning,hopefully it will arrive in the UK by tonight,and I should get to me by wednesday.

zoneofenders2892d ago

one of the best game i have played this gen
well the uselss SCEJ(this gen,so far) redeem themself with this game.

Chris3992892d ago

Not trying to start anything, but Folklore and even Genji (for it's time) were brilliant and decent games respectively. Folklore in particular was massively under appreciated. Pretty sure that SCEJ were responsible for the original Legend of Dragoon too. There have been some fun little casual titles - Piyotama, Last Man (or whatever it's called, can't recall) - that they've had a hand in as well.

Oh, and they're intimately involved with Media Vision in their crafting of all things Wild Arms, which basically make them akin to Gods in my book :)

TheTwelve2892d ago

I can't express enough how rewarding this game is. This is the only game this gen that will truly measure your gaming skills. Hardcore officially belongs to the PS3 because of this one game.

And it lasts forever.

Oh, and it has an amazingly unique online mode (hehehehe).

Yes this game is great. 30hrs in and maybe halfway through. The variety in locations and enemies is nice. Never knowing what lurks around a bend or what is waiting for you in the distant dark. There are nice surprises and big Boss'. Any D&D/fantasy lovers out there should get this game. This game is hard. You will level up but if you are not carefully a low level baddy will still be able to beat u especially if ganged up. Online component is fun also. Go killed the other day by a high level player who broke into my game as a Black Phantom. Also had some help fighting a boss enemy with a player who joined my game by summoning who showed up as a Blue Phantom. This is how an online component for a single player game works well.

TheHater2892d ago

you had to bring up the horror that was Enchanted Arms did you?

INehalemEXI2892d ago (Edited 2892d ago )

One of my most treasured gems DS is. It brings satisfaction and you will want to keep it , this is like anti rental. If you rent you should be hog tied and feathered. pwn this.

SaiyanFury2892d ago

Fantastic and well written review. I said pretty much the same things when I reviewed the game a few months back. Truly one of the most satisfying games this gen for me as a die hard King's Field fan.

ThanatosDMC2891d ago

I got a questing for those that have the game. Do y'all play it solo or with people's help?

INehalemEXI2880d ago

I play alone most of the time but its alot of fun and easier when playing with others. There is also person vs person which is awesome.

Why o why2892d ago *keels over*.
i did hear this game was hard, suppose it makes a change. Feels better when you finally flip it. I still hold anguish towards ninja gaiden Sigma for handing my sh!t to me to the point where i put it down for a couple months

arvfab2892d ago

Oh it's hard, very hard some times. BUT if you know some little tricks, you can beat the hardest bosses without even swinging your sword once :D Unfortunatly, you can only do it after your first playtrough, so the first time will still be very hard..just ask the Maneater boss :D

Da One2892d ago

i hated that boss with a passion

AcesAndEights2892d ago

That game looks pretty damn awesome, but, if it's hard I will probably suck at it, gotta be worth a try though.

SpoonyRedMage2892d ago

Another great score. Looks like an awesome game then. It's especially surprising considering the developer's track record.

Fullish2892d ago

Agreed, looks way better then enchanted arms.

beavis4play2892d ago

i've never played any of their other games but, i've played the kings field games and loved them. they do this style of game right.

Cyrax_872892d ago

Looks like we have another Valkyria Chronicles here :D

Can't wait till it comes to Australia.
