Demon's Soul Review (JPS)

JPS Writes: "...I have to say, Demons Soul took me by surprise. I honestly wasn't sure what to expect, especially after hearing about how difficult it is. Yes, the game is hard, but that doesn't take away from it in the slightest. The difficulty isn't overwhelming, nor is it due to balance issues or poor design. Demons Soul is a great game for any RPG fan and is sure to fill that void for a great action RPG. In depth customization, awesome battle system and dungeon crawling, and beautifully rendered environments coupled with some great online gameplay certainly help Demons Soul standout amongst the flood of games this fall." (Demon's Souls, PS3) 5/5

LOL yup the game isnt going to hold your hand.
I think people don't understand how this game is unless they play it

for themselves.
JsonHenry  +   2189d ago
I love being blindsided by a sleeper hit! Can't wait to order my new 2.5 SATA HDD so I can actually play it, seeming that is what is wrong with my PS3.

rucky  +   2190d ago
Wait I thought it was buy 2 get 1 free? What's your third game?
SnuggleBandit  +   2190d ago
gimme a link to that deal por favor!
Myst  +   2190d ago
May not be the same one on the site, but still states the deal.

Pennywise  +   2189d ago
It is buy 2 get 1 free.... Still a good deal.

UC2, NGS2, I have no idea what to get free!! I already own DS.
Myst  +   2189d ago
Afrika I suppose it comes out on the 13th and it is a change of pace from all the other games.
Pennywise  +   2189d ago
Hmmm, interesting suggestion. I was thinking maybe BatmanAA.. havent played it yet.
Myst  +   2189d ago
Hmm, Batman AA isn't bad either it's roughly a 7~8 hour game, which is how long it took a friend and I to run through the game on normal. We had rented it for just one night as well. Either way, I don't think you could go wrong with either one.

this game kicks my ass D; i like the temple knight so far only tried the Temple knight and the knight when i got my copy today there was only 4 left on the shelf at eb games i was kinda shocked to see a lot of people getting it, most of my friends haven't herd of it. one demon guy keeps killing me with a spear , one shot kills ;(. i gave up on fighting him and went through the fog lol
Tex117  +   2189d ago
I think its a right of passage that all beginner players get their ass handed to them by the red-eyed spear weilding night.

If you find a way to kill them, you get around 2000 souls. It makes it a good place to level up early on.
JonnyBigBoss  +   2190d ago
What an outstanding game.
tudors  +   2189d ago
it sounds like a great game but you don't elaborate much, I assume you have played it but i am not sure.
kaaos666  +   2190d ago
This game kicks ass iv been playing it since yesterday afternoon almost nonstop.
Kareshi_X  +   2189d ago
Please be aware that they have not been paid to give the game a 5/5 even though some others gave the game 8/10. if a PS3 game gets a perfect 5/5 It's ok. There is not Bias ok.the game is just that good.

yes cause they would receive payment from who exactly? this game has gone basically unnoticed by the average gamer due to lack of advertising, so why would they pay off reviewers when they don't even pay for many advertisements?
Not to mention the fact that when the asian version was released months ago people were already praising it with most scores being 8 or higher.
Sarcasm  +   2189d ago
This game is soooooo easy.

It's a cake walk through and through. The reviews are all lies.

There might as well be a "Win" button.

I have came to this conclusion after the PS3 is off and Demon's Souls is no longer active.

Kain81  +   2189d ago
even you shut down your PS3, the game runs on your MIND... Yeah so Hardcore is that Game

I am sitting at work waiting for the post man to give me myCollector's Edition
I am so rabid to play this that I thought about actually buying the game at a gamestop yesterday. Demon's Soul's is driving me to madness.

The grammar nazi in me doesn't even care that the title should be Demons' Souls, not Demon's Souls.
