Review: Demon's Souls | GamesAreEvil

GrE writes, "I also want you to bend your mind around this: if you've played and enjoyed Donkey Kong, Frogger, Super Mario Brothers or any of the dozen other old school platformers out there, you'll dig Demon's Souls. I'm sure you're wondering if I'm talking about the same Demon's Souls that you might have been anticipating. It is definitely not a platforming game. It's an action RPG with decidedly old school learning curve, with no hand holding and no support system for being a n00b.

it's freaking brilliant.

I wish this had a release date for the EU. Looks like importing might be my only option :(

roblef2874d ago

aren't ps3 games region free? you should be able to have a nice friend in the US send you one.

bgrundman2874d ago

You may end up having too if you really want it.

Haly2874d ago

Yeah I might have to I think at this rate! Looks too good for an RPG nut like me to miss :)

EU currently has no release date. So if you want to play it, I suggest importing. My friend did, it's region free and all the online seems to work.

45 squids for the US version on Ebay. The Seller is apparantly in the UK too. (If you're in UK)

I know I'll be going down the import route.

Just be careful to check the box cover, not everyone appears to be stating they are selling the asian version.

Thanks for the tip Keowrath :)

Dare I say that this is a Ninja Gaiden clone?

Fishy Fingers2874d ago

If you want to be wrong, then yeah.

@ Fishy Fingers + Bubbles!

This game is as much of a Ninja Gaiden Clone as it is a Solitaire clone.

I'm ready to sneak away from the missus and get my behind handed to me by this baby.
