Neoseeker Demon's Souls Review

Heath Flor writes, Every once in a blue moon a game comes along that challenges your abilities as a gamer. Demon's Souls is one of these games. With its enemies that one-hit kill you, and traps that are hell-bent on seeing you dead, Demon's Souls pulls no punches. It is by far one of the most difficult and challenging games that you will ever play. However, I will not declare that it's a game only for the hardcore. No fellow gamers, this is a game that is only for those with an abundance of patience and devotion. (Demon's Souls, PS3) 9.5/10

Ugh
Nothing I hate more than a reviewer who starts his article "Every once in awhile a game comes along..." So unprofessional.

sorry goodfella, there is a worse beginning :
"before i start this review, i want to state that i *am/am not* a big fan of this game".
as soon as i read that in a review, i know it's no longer a review - just a fanboy ranting for or against the game they are "reviewing".......
that is the wrong way to start a review. if a reveiwer is biased for or against a series or genre......they shouldn't be reviewing the game.

"...coming from the Lion King"

"Mufasa...

Mufasa...

Mufasa, Mufasa-Mufasa-Mufasa... *giggles* guhahhaaha!"

@1.7, Well for me I think what's even more worse than that is the ol' ..
"I am the #1 biggest, most ultimate fan of <insert name here>" ... and then they proceed to totally trash it to oblivion in an juggernaut smack down of Gargantua proportions.

The one kills me every time

Oct 6... Day of Reckoning...
I read this -- "No fellow gamers, this is a game that is only for those with an abundance of patience and devotion." -- and was like

uh oh, what did I get myself into preordering this game. Demon's Souls is gonna kick my a$$. I'm not that patient and will drop a game in an instant if I'm not having fun.

But it seems that this is the rare game that you really don't mind dying over and over again, because it is so fun -- and dying is just expected. Weird... and I know that I'd kick myself if I passed on the chance to experience a game like this

Someone said it earlier...

You don't choose this game. This game chooses you.

So true

Demons Souls has proven itself to be TRIPLE A motherfkers. There is no way to deny it now.
And this game is on my list to buy and own. I was going to skip this for Batman AA but DAAAAAJJJJJJUUUUMMMMMM this game is fine.
blackbeld  +   1917d ago
^^^Yep^^^^ PS3 is moving more consoles with this game too... 360 days are over!!
Aquarius  +   1917d ago
This is one of those games that you just don't sell.

(Pre-ordered and Bought Deluxe Edition in August BTW)

@below I know what your speaking about man.

wow, this game looks EPIC, its a shame such awesome game wont sell as good as some expansions for the same price :(
morganfell  +   1916d ago
I see what you did...
Sarcasm  +   1916d ago
I think this game would be lucky to break 50,000 in the U.S.

I don't know, despite the good reviews and gamer praise. I just don't see it catching the eyes of the average consumer. It would look like just another title to them.

I wasn't particularly impressed with it either on the first impressions, but after reading tons of reviews and hand-s on from real gamers it's what really got me hooked to want to play.
Obama  +   1916d ago
The thing is sometimes masterpiece don't sell while mediocre games sell in millions. Sales have nothing to do with quality.
Noctis Aftermath  +   1916d ago
I think part of the reason why this won't sell well is because the game needs a face, a suit of armor isn't a face, to me just by looking at the cover it doesn't really grab my attention because it just looks like a generic medieval game cover.

But since i've been watching the videos and reading reviews this game has shown me just how good it is, day 1 buy.
TwistedMetal  +   1916d ago
I just pre order the delux edition with releas day shipping. I hope I get this on the 5th. its gonna be sick.
lets see who can die the least lol.
kavka3  +   1916d ago
Great Review
Cant wait
DigitalAnalog  +   1916d ago
With all these stellar reviews, Demon's Souls will be a "sleeper" hit!
slave2Dcontroller  +   1916d ago
Agreed
Katamari Forever will suffer the same fate. Its incredibly fun and addictive but wont do as well as it deservedly should. I couldnt wait to get it and I might be picking this up as well.
Bobby Kotex  +   1916d ago
The only difference is katamari isn't getting good reviews.
MGOelite  +   1916d ago
sleeper hits ftw
saint_john_paul_ii  +   1916d ago
Underrated game of the Year. Im calling it. BUY THIS GAME PEOPLE! its not everyday we get games like this...
slave2Dcontroller  +   1916d ago
Umm
AMEN?
saint_john_paul_ii  +   1916d ago
Yes. Amen..
morganfell  +   1916d ago
Thank you your Royal Popeness. Great advice. I have had this game since the Asian edition launched and you simply can't go wrong.

I will say not to get this game if you cant's afford to start playing and look up at the clock a short time later and ask, "Where the hell did the last 10 hours go?"
morganfell  +   1916d ago
Oh look, a non PS3 owner is jealous. Boo effing hoo.
beavis4play  +   1916d ago
i hear ya morgan!
i spent 100s of hours on the kingsfield games (when i was a teen). i'll be playing DS as much as my schedule allows.
divideby0  +   1916d ago
2 AAA games within a couple of weeks of each other....only on the PS3.

Since my launch 360, I cant recall seeing 2 other AAA games released weeks apart for it..
beavis4play  +   1916d ago
hey, ps3 is getting 3 &quot;AAA&quot; games within 3 weeks.
demon souls oct. 6
uncharted 2 oct. 13
ratchet:aCiT oct. 27

where am i going to find the time?
Bobby Kotex  +   1916d ago
I'm getting all three, and don't forget the next month we get the GoW collection. I'm buying more games in the next couple months than I have all year.

Geez....this game is getting perfect reviews left and right!
Even Edge gave it a 9/10!
paracardium  +   1916d ago
sweet
Seems like old school King's field games and I enjoyed those so I'm glad I pre ordered the delux edition.
venomcarnage89  +   1916d ago
awesome.
i am loving all these great reviews. i just wish they would advertise this game on tv. i looked at the trophy list and was thinking "thank god theres no trophy for dying less than X amount of times throughout the game" because that would just be rediculous. this will be one of the games i will try to think about trophies very little while i play, but it would be nice to get such a hard platinum.
nycredude  +   1916d ago
Good luck with THIS platinum. You need to beat the game at least 3 times to platinum this game.

I can easily see this game become a cult classic and in the future a gamer's worth will be measured by whether or not they have this platinum. If you get this platinum you are a hardcore gamer!
venomcarnage89  +   1915d ago
wow
you have to beat the game 3 times? thats insane! i am not good at grinding what so ever so i think that knocks me out of the running for it, unless i slowly work at it for like a year and a half.
AliTheBrit  +   1916d ago
Why isn't this game out in the UK? :(

I want to rent it..But if its not out over here I cant do that can I ¬_¬
