Popmatters Review: Demon's Souls

Popmatters writes:

"Demon's Souls is a triumph of the JRPG genre, providing an experience (and difficulty) that is unmatchable in any other title this generation. It is also stubborn as it makes no concessions against its grinding and upgrade mechanics, which narrowly treads the line between the commitment needed to play an RPG as opposed to an MMORPG with a completion time at a minimum of 40 hours and a level cap at 712. Though the barrier to entry seems unfairly high, players that surrender themselves to the game will undoubtedly discover a vastly rewarding experience that only continues to give back. From Software has produced an uncompromising game that compels the player to invest and understand the game on its own terms and Atlus has shown once again they are one of the most fearless publishers in the industry today. To put it simply, Demon's Souls is a great game." (Demon's Souls, PS3) 9/10
