Demon's Souls Review: Play Magazine

Play Magazine writes: "The word of mouth on this game is going to be great, unless your friends only play WiiFit. Demon's Souls is what an 8-Bit game would play like if it were popped open and dumped out in your lap. Gorgeous, thoughtful, and complete unto itself, it's the second-best title I've played this year. Maybe even better." (Demon's Souls, PS3) 9.5/10

"Demon’s Souls is what an 8-Bit game would play like if it were popped open and dumped out in your lap."

I think that sums the game up nicely. 2 more days....

I think ima start over with the asian edition. I think ima buy it from gamestop and swap the disc and tell gamestop it was 2 hard :)

It seems this game is pretty hot stuff
I JUST pre-ordered the DELUXE EDITION. I must admit, I not as hardcore as I was a couple of years back. But hopefully, I still have what it takes to beat this.

Anyone know when the US online servers will be up and running?

US servers go online on launch day, Oct. 6.

wow ...
what a nice score! I think this is a great game but sometimes very challenging. But I like tough games when you need some skills to beat it.

"Demon's Souls, on the other hand, is as long as you are stupid."
Bring it on.

I picked up my art book and soundtrack yesterday, kinda cool, some good info in the art book. And I gave myself Wednesday and Thursday off this week. I cant wait to get home from work Tuesday night.

Demon's Souls, you will soon be mine!
Bordel_1900  +   2196d ago
I can't even begin to say how idiotic it is that this awesome title isn't even being released in Europe, just f*ing incredible.
Baba1906  +   2196d ago
agree its sooooooo stupid. i would buy this first day. =( they hate us.
lordgodalming  +   2196d ago
It does suck, but with PS3 there's always a chance to import.

Import from the US
ia_studio  +   2196d ago
I only import since there's no game releases here in ecuador, it sucks.
Sony hates us in latin america, not you europeans.

I did like you guys suggested, it's now pre-ordered from dvdboxoffice.com , I tried Amazon.com but they tell me they can't ship it to Europe. I chose European Delivery (GE), hope I get it soon :)
Charlie2688  +   2196d ago
@ia_studio: tu tambien eres de Ecuador? O.O!
eddyka2  +   2196d ago
I am picking this up on day 1. Can't wait! :)
GamerPS360  +   2196d ago

That, plus I just got NGS2 this past Tuesday. I don't know how I'm going to find time to play all these games. I feel like taking a vacation from work for the next month just so I can finish all these games' stories let alone some U2 multiplayer.
The_Beast  +   2196d ago

This game is way out of everyone's radar, and shouldn't be.

It's like one of those indie movies you're always hearing rave reviews about, and a particular clique of people are always talking about it, and you have no idea what it's about. There are no commercials and everyone is more interested in the stupid B movies that get all the funny comedians to star in them.
UltimateIdiot911  +   2196d ago
Totally agree. While my friends are talking about LBP and other big titles last year, I was signing VC's tune. Now my friends are talking about UC2 and by no mean it's bad but wish people see past hype and give these lesser known titles a chance. Oh well, I've always been more for the niche titles.
Major_Tom  +   2196d ago
I could not recommend this game anyless than what you've heard about it. This game is mature without being redundant it can be inspiring without being cheesy. It's intensely satisfying and rewarding.

To be honest, I'm having a hard time believing if The Last Guardian will even top it.
ico92  +   2196d ago
for some reason
i think this game is going to be a cult overlooked classic just like ico
Anorexorcist  +   2196d ago
I don't think this will receive the same public-sales treatment as Ico.
Ico's premise and gameplay were reaching far more towards the "Niche" category of gameplay. Demon's Souls is a hack-and-slash RPG, which with had been firmly established in the minds of hardcore gamers by legendary titles like Diablo.

Demon's Souls really has just come out of nowhere within the past few weeks and if marketing budget for the title is minimum (which I assume it is), than it will be overlooked and then later revered by those who focused too much on shooters this holiday season.

Actually I think a lot of people will buy this because reviewers love it, play for about 2 hours, and immediately trade it in because it's too hard. Just a hunch.
Zipperdog  +   2196d ago
To lordgodalming
I totally agree. I considered waiting a few days to see if a copy would end up on the 'for resale' shelf. I couldn't do it. I need it Tuesday!!!!!

I've played the hell outta the Korean Version and loved every minute of it. Excited about getting the deluxe US release...can't wait to lose myself in this amazing game again. :D
Rifle-Man  +   2196d ago
Damn! Too much good stuff coming out this month. I'll have to buy this and put it in my backlog.

Goddamn Modern Warfare 2 is really getting in the way.
Major_Tom  +   2196d ago
Down right, one of the best games ever made and a big reason to own a PS3. Strictly speaking this is my own opinion.
lordgodalming  +   2196d ago
Hating on UC2 right in your avatar...need some attention, Major? On topic, I've also been waiting a long time for this game to show up in the US.

djtek184  +   2196d ago
Well what do we have here? Looks like another AAA. Its good to be on the darkside... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
MeatAbstract  +   2196d ago
Very good review
I've been debating with myself for awhile whether to import this game or not. This review summed it up nicely for me, as have a few others. I've been wanting an RPG, a challenging RPG at that and this sounds great.

His description got me very envious to play this game so I have it pre-ordered from movietyme. Can't wait!
