ThePlayStatioNetwork Review: Demon's Souls

From Software's latest RPG, Demon's Souls, has been given the Ryan Gray treatment. The TPSN editor seems to be pretty enamored with the game and believes it will be one that will transcend the usual gap between Japanese and Western RPGS. That said, he doesn't seem to hopeful about it's sales.

From the review:
Gameplay wise, Demon's Souls preserves some of what you know about role-playing games. You'll kill, you'll loot, you'll repeat. However, this is all contrasted with a new hybrid beat em' up/stealth/strategy type gameplay. Fighting enemies is actually quite fun; something I find rare in an RPG. You're going to want to take on enemies one by one, but sometimes you have no choice. Luckily, the attacking/guarding mechanics are intuitive, responsive, and a joy overall. Gameplay varies through out each class, and you'll want to try them all in order to find your favorite. I played a Knight for most of my review time, but character balancing doesn't seem to be an issue. Although single player can be fun, playing with others is where Demon's Souls hit its stride with me. Anyone whose ever played games along the lines of World of Warcraft will know what to do. You'll want varied classes in your group, and have good strategy. The only problem is, again, I'm not sure how many people will actually play the game. I'm praying for a lot, you should too. (Demon Souls, Demon's Souls, PS3) 8.7/10

Is this a review?
"Never heard of Demon’s Souls? You’re not alone. I had to do a little research when I found out I was reviewing it".

-You live under a rock? o_o

"It’s a dark, sometimes strange title that will take a little time just figuring out what it’s about".

-Ehh?

"only problem I have with the type of title Demon’s Souls is is that it caters to a very small group of RPG lovers in areas like the United States or the UK".

-Wtf? O_o

"Here, the sales might not be so hot"

-Sales on a review? geeze lmao! i see

"this is all contrasted with a new hybrid beat em’ up/stealth/strategy type gameplay"

-Share what you are smoking please...

"The only problem is, again, I’m not sure how many people will actually play the game"

-Dude give up making reviews really...

Why can't sales factor in?
I think what Mr. Gray is trying to say by commenting on sales is that, if this game sells poorly then the overall experience might be lacking. I agree with your point about the "very small group", however I think this is just poor wording on Ryan's part.
As for not hearing much about the game, this is an Atlus RPG. Atlus doesn't always, if ever, cater to a large audience and they don't have a massive marketing campaign. I can see why Ryan might not have heard anything about this.
Please, constructive criticism is all well and good but when you're telling a good writer like Ryan Gray to quit reviewing videogames, you're bordering on plain idiocy. To be honest, your 'critiquing' of his work just sounded like pure jealousy towards the end.
Thankyou
