Seductive entertainment for those who like it rough - GAM reviews Demon's Souls

Globe and Mail game reporter Chad Sapieha writes in his review of Demon's Souls:

"I'd been playing the game for over two hours when I realized that I hadn't made any progress at all. Literally. If I were to switch of the console at that moment and just walk away, then come back to the game again some other time, it would have been as though the hours I'd just spent with it had never happened.

Welcome to Demon's Souls, a new PlayStation 3 exclusive from From Software that has seemingly come out of nowhere to earn critical raves (it's tracking at over 90 per cent on metacritic), with websites like IGN dubbing it "quite simply one of the best on the PlayStation 3" while implying that it is also the hardest game yet released for Sony's machine--or any current generation system, for that matter.

The funny thing is that it's critical raves are nothing if not counter-intuitive--and not just because it's exasperatingly punishing." (Demon's Souls, PS3) -

lol.

The author didnt bother to finish the game before writing up a review?
And the game only begins once you start your New Game+ run. First run is kind of like a painful tutorial. Never the less, the best game i've played all year roudn

The more reviews I read the more, the less interested in the game I become.

While the graphics look very impressive and the combat looks fun. I don't think I could get pass the lack of story that most reviews have mentioned. As storyline is king when it comes to RPGS.

I do feel the game deserves a chance, so I'll be giving it a rent at somepoint in October. Then I'll make a decision if I'll buy it or not.

That'd be a good bet.
Even though it lacks a story line, the gameplay and the variety it offers makes up for it in tons fold. No twists, no turns. Your aim is to destroy evil off your land. And you'll take great pleasure in doing so (if i may add). Ofc, it takes awhile to get used to it. But the gameplay mechanics are ingenious. I hope everyone gives this game a try. Seems like the sleeper hit of 09 to me =/

There doesn't need to be a story at all IMO
Its a good old medieval game with demons, souls, dragons, some huge monsters and colossuses. It's similar to Donkey Kong. Why is a gorilla called Donkey Kong throwing barrels at a small plumber trying to rescue a princess? Who cares if it is has a story, it's hard as hell and fun as hell. (PS I may have mixed some of that up but I think it's right)
