PC World Review: Demon's Souls, The Hardest Game You've Ever Played

"Demon's Souls is hard. Harder than sailing through Nintendo's Punch-Out!! cheat-free. Harder than solving a Rubik's Cube blindfolded. Harder than luring CBS to feature you for ranking "top Guitar Hero III player in the world." Harder than scoring a fabled 3,333,360 points in Pac-Man…

Okay, maybe not harder than playing a perfect game of Pac-Man." (Demon's Souls, PS3) 100/100

Its really not that hard
if you take your time, you can get through levels on your 1st or 2nd try.

Took me 51 hours to successfully beat it first time; I will say some of the bosses are a joke to beat (3 bosses I beat without even taking damage while some took 5+ tries) but I will say its nice to play something that actually requires patience, skill, and timing.

My biggest gripe is going halfway through a stage alive only for some jack off to come kill me for a whole 3 souls I had on me at the time.

Think of your first time through a level as a trial period. You'll get killed, but now you know what you're in for and can plan accordingly.

POSSIBLE MINOR SPOILER

Like the Mind Flayers (Octopus Head guards) in the 3-1 are DANGEROUS. But go there with the Anti-Magic Field spell or a spell-absorbing shield, and both them and the boss are nothing.

I still find it hard to belive that Demon's Souls came out of From Software :O

The Blue Dragon I used arrows on, I had the npc fire at it as well (he died :( may he rest in piece(s)) but wasn't too hard. I had more problems on that 1-2 Dragon that kept flying around it took me 200 arrows before I successfully killed it, Blue Dragon took about 75-80 and I was using Heavy Arrows on both

Nice review
I like that this guy describes the fear and dread, and the compulsion to continue, instead of just banging on about the online features etc etc like all the other reviewers. He really conveys what feels like to play the game.

I've been taking my time, 40 hours in so far and I'm up to soul level 52, on 4-2 at the moment. Damn second reaper just lost me 44,000 souls, the git.

My beloved 60 gig died on me, and with it, my 60+ hour playthrough save.
I am super bummed.

Basically, it's the only save I care about that can not be migrated. I had a 500 GB hd in there as my main. When it died i tried to transport all the saves to an external HD, but not all games allow this. So i put the 60 gb HD back in there and I'm sending it in for repairs. I hope that when I get it back and I put back the 500 gb HD in there, I won't have to reformat the HD and erase all my saves.

Worst part is I can't play demon's souls till this gets cleared up.
