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."

The story is too old to be commented.

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.


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

Because SCE Japan was involved in this game too. See the opening credits.

stuck at 1-4 jebus i hate the blue dragon lol.

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
