Demon's Souls is first and foremost an action RPG, filling a major void in the PS3's catalogue. The game takes place in Boletaria, a kingdom surrounded by wall of thick, near-impenetrable fog. Everything trapped inside the fog has turned into a ruined wasteland overrun by legions of undead and demons. As a lone wanderer, you pierce the fog and find yourself traveling the wastes in search of demon souls and... well, what else isn't exactly clear at this time. With the exception of a narrated back-story, much of Demon's Souls plot is left up to the player to decipher. As of this time, I just know I'm looking for souls and I'm out to exact revenge on a large and rather unpleasant demon who killed me, sending me to the game's hub world, a dumping place for souls."
