GameFocus: Demon's Souls Review

GameFocus writes: "Rarely have gamers been given a chance to play such a niche title in this day and age where casual gaming is the norm and those who grew up playing video games where skill, dedication and no internet to search for cheats or walkthroughs were around to help could defeat the hardest games and say with pride I am the best. Now days you have to take every boast with a big grain of salt but pucker up girls and boys because even with helpful videos and walkthroughs this is a game which will punish the weak and leave many a gamer in tears."

It came from nowhere,with virtually no hype/exposure and turned out to become one of the top 3 games i've played this gen(other 2 being MGS4 & KZ2).

I'm guessing a lot of people will be surprised by how much replayability and content it has. Most people will easily take 45-55 hrs for their 1st play through and you will be stunned by the new difficulty level of New Game . This game is unforgiving but that's one of its main appeal. You learn from your mistakes the hard way, which is the fastest way to get better.

This game has a fantastic atmosphere, and the believe it or not, the difficulty actually augments the experience. When was the last time you fear facing a game's boss? Even the normal mobs will instill fear in you when you first face them.The punishment system only makes the eventual victory so much sweeter and rewarding. And the awe-inspiring bosses are the highlights of Demon's Souls. All the boss battles are very inspired and combined with the deep gameplay of DS, it combines to give an awesome experience.

Sorry for ranting on :P but really...if you are sick of playing the same type of games over and over again, if you are up for the challenge and is ready for a fresh experience, you will NOT regret getting Demon's Souls.
