Nicholas Bale: "It sets such a high standard for dungeon crawling titles that can only be matched by the best of them. Fantastic atmosphere, simple controls that allow for a diverse portfolio of combat options, a feeling of success that is unmatched by any other title I've played to date, and an unmatched feeling of dread for when you walk into the lair of something that's ten times bigger than you, and hungry. Simply put, Demon's Souls should be on your shelf if you've ever played an action-RPG title before. It's fun, it's impressive in scope and depth, it's unmatched on the market, and it's fun (did I say that already?) Yes, it's hard. Yes, you'll die. Yes, you'll die a lot."
