ScrawlFx Demon's Souls Review

Sal writes, "Demon's Souls is a Japanese action-RPG but feels more like a Western RPG. This is probably because of the game's real-time combat system and Oblivion-like style. The game gives players their own customizable character, complete with ten classes to chose from, stats to level up, new weapons and items to find, and a will to beat the game. Demon's Souls is difficult, I can tell you that. It's probably one of the hardest games you'll ever play. If you though Ninja Gaiden II for Xbox 360 was hard, you'll laugh at it after playing this game."

So far it's looking like another AAA exclusive

Ichiryoka2452d ago

yup...heh...(cant stop smiling)...

I reallly want this game.. Just call me (Mid-Boss)...<<Kind of a inside joke...(disgaea)

I remember when people were saying how this game was going to fail because they thought the graphics were sub-par.

Well, this is a prime example of a game having such solid gameplay that visuals can take a back seat and everything is still peachy.

I'll admit that Demon's Souls hasn't really been on my radar until now, but I will definitely be picking this up soon after it releases.

@Thom: Ah, the wariness seems a lot more reasonable now. From Software isn't a company I have been following, so I wasn't really aware of their sketchy pedigree. Looks like they've done quite the turn-around then!

PirateThom2452d ago

I think a lot of people were also wary due to it being From Software and their past games Armoured Core, Enchanted Arms, Tenchu Z and Ninja Blade all being, well, not good.

Hopefully the reception for Demon's Souls will carry over to 3D Dot Game Heroes, a game I'm personally looking forward to.

It's such a shame that this game gets ZERO advertisement from Sony in gaming conventions

Ravage272452d ago

trust me, the graphics are VERY decent. It might not wow gamers who are used to playing KZ2, but it gets the job done(ESPECIALLY during the boss's entrance).

If you can accept Prototype's level of gfx, you will DEFINITELY have no problem with DS. Not to mention you will be so engrossed with the fantastic atmosphere and gameplay that you won't have time to search for jaggies or bad textures.

Redempteur2452d ago

Ninja gaiden was not hard it was cheap ( boss exploding after you beat them is just cheap IMO )

Demon soul is just hard but i don't think you'll think it's that hard after you figure out how to progress

Carefullness , skill , good thinking might be the keys to master DS imo

DigitalAnalog2452d ago

Ah, the mere mention of 3D DOT HEROES (too ecstatic at this moment)!

SaiyanFury2452d ago (Edited 2452d ago )

Demon's Souls is not only an awesome game, it's the only game this generation that I've experienced a genuine sense of dread. Repeatedly. If you don't know your environs and don't know how to handle a situation, you're dead. Bosses can be impressive like the Dragon God. If that doesn't impress you, then nothing will. He's huge and awe inspiring. But thankfully, not too difficult to fight. Because FROM Software made Demon's Souls I'm really hoping that we'll see a new King's Field game on PS3. :D

ThanatosDMC2452d ago

Here's what i think Demons' Souls could improve on if they make a sequel since it's possible since the DS world is so open.

1. More open world. The game is linear. But im just complaining since i wanted more screwed up places to visit. 5-3 demon babies pit is an insane death trap.
2. More armor sets. I stuck with knights set till i needed speed and went with three armor (two light Black armor and Brushwood very heavy leg armor) pieces to survive properly in New Game+ and Black Phantoms.

PS3 keeps getting more and more high rated exclusives. What has the 360 had this year? Other than Gaylo and Flopza what else is there?

STICKzophrenic2452d ago

Why not just be happy with the games you get, and ignore what the "other side" is getting and playing?

NecrumSlavery2452d ago

twitter and facebook pages...lol...and um? Well most of their exclusives are multiplatform now. so um? huh? a netflix update? oh wait. there is the....oh no...hmmm? *scratches head*....

THE MAX SPEED 212452d ago

PS3 exclusives from 2007+++ are all AAA.

great console.

knightcrisis2452d ago

But, from what I heard Cross Edge isn't AAA.

Chris3992452d ago

It's coming to the 360 as Cross Edge: Dash.

Exclusives > multi-plats, 90% of the time. (Too Human, Ninja Blade, Lair and Haze were irregularities in the formula :) )

knightcrisis2452d ago

Thanks for clearing that up. Bubbles for you. =]

Defectiv3_Detectiv32452d ago

Every review I've read about this game has given it an enthusiastic thumbs up. In fact, I haven't read a negative review of it so far. It makes me wonder, will the games high learning curve keep it from getting GOTY or even RPG-GOTY awards consideration?

I think there should be more buzz for this game than there is. One thing is for sure, new playstation owners/PS Slim customers are going to be pleasantly surprised when they discover this game - its got SLEEPER HIT written all over it.

RealityCheck2452d ago

While by all accounts it's a great game, I think historically GOTY go to games that are more accessible. Without an easy mode to make it accessible to all, a game like this is bound to frustrate some percentage of players, enough to make it loose a GOTY vote.

I have it pre-ordered, I just don't expect it to win a popular GOTY vote.
