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. Demon's Souls is incredibly unforgiving, and the one hit kills aren't koopa-cute, but this is your daddy's old-school gaming...." (Demon's Souls, PS3) -

This looks about as oldschool and hardcore as it gets.

it's freaking brilliant.

I wish this had a release date for the EU. Looks like importing might be my only option :(
roblef  +   2156d ago
aren't ps3 games region free? you should be able to have a nice friend in the US send you one.
bgrundman  +   2156d ago
You may end up having too if you really want it.
Haly  +   2156d 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 Fingers  +   2156d ago
If you want to be wrong, then yeah.

Lol
@ Fishy Fingers + Bubbles!

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

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

"this is your daddy’s old-school gaming." That about sums up what I am looking for.
kydrice  +   2156d ago
I just got the game, this game is so hard, right as i booted it up, I died, IRL.
CanadianDana  +   2156d ago
HAHAHA! That's great
Tex117  +   2156d ago
The game chooses you
OSIRUSSS  +   2156d ago
I got this game today and, I got to say its pretty fun.
notbob  +   2156d ago
I'm not sure what a koopa-cute, one-hit-kill is, but okay.
