Gaming Age: Demon's Souls Review

Gaming Age writes: "Demon's Souls comes to the US, thanks to Atlus, riding a considerable amount of hype from the import community. The Asian version of Demon's Souls had a lot of English text built in, so there have been positive impressions of this game running for quite some time. I'm happy to say that the hype was warranted. Atlus has cleaned up the interface and made the necessary grammatical changes to help with the steep learning curve in the beginning of the game. Make no mistake, this can be a brutally unforgiving game and may not appeal to everyone, but this is definitely the type of game that was needed to expand the PS3's library." (Demon's Souls, PS3) A-/A+

Good review
But I'm going to have to pass. I get frustrated enough playing Shatter. God knows what I would be like after my millionth death on Demon's Souls.

Don't pass. I get frustrated very easily, but not in Demon's Souls. The game is a delight from beginning to end, and then some. I played through it 4 times and got the platinum trophy. 113 hours of gameplay to get the platinum. The most addictive game I have ever played. I do mean ever. I could not put the thing down for about 2 weeks (literally, every waking second I was playing Demon's Souls). The game is challenging, but never frustrating. When you succeed, it's very rewarding. But when you fail, you genuinely understand what you did wrong and you learn not to make the same mistake again. It's never cheap or unfair. It's absolutely one of the best games of all time. Yes, I just said "one of the best games of all time."

Yeah, like callahan09 said, don't pass this game.

Is it hard? No. Is it challenging? Absolutely. It's also the best RPG at the moment, IMO.

And if you get frustrated by the difficulty, just summon blue phantoms to help you out.

Have you decided to surrender yet?

Demon's Souls >>>>>>Fable II
callahan09  +   1767d ago
I loved Fable 2, but I absolutely agree. Not for fanboy reasons or because of the console it's on, though. Fable 2 is a great game. But Demon's Souls is a timeless classic in every way. I love Demon's Souls.
