On the surface, Demon's Souls seems like your standard action RPG. You start the game by creating and customizing your character, giving him or her a name, a face and a class. You can equip a variety of weapons and armor, learn magic and miracles, collect items and even get your equipment customized at the local blacksmith. The reality, however, is that from the get go you will come to the realization that this is not your standard RPG and is perhaps like no game you've ever played. Even the story is bizarre, albeit not all that interesting.
