3xG: Demons Souls EU Review

3xG says: "Quick, easy and shallow are all words that would never be used to describe this game. With relentlessly difficultly, a feature-length story and over the top detail Demon’s Souls is a game worthy of a review to match, and thanks to the Pac-Man creators Capcom it’s coming to European shores!" (Capcom, Demon's Souls, PS3) -

Geez, its less of a review and more of a FAQ. Is that a list of every single spell in the game?
WildArmed  +   1915d ago
lol. was wondering the same thing.
Seems like the author went through a wiki (which he points out at the end of the FAQ/Review)
Or that he has put ALOT of time in the US Demons Souls.. then i dont blame him for going on and on.
I'd do the same if i were to write a review about it.

awesome game, i imported this a few months back because i couldn't wait any longer to come out in europe, i recommend it for any who enjoys JRPG's and pick up an extra controller just in case i broke two in my first play through.
-Ikon-  +   1915d ago
Ha yup. The best part about it all is, it wasn't the game being cheap it was your own stupid mistakes that make you rage break controller.
Aphe  +   1915d ago
It's nothing like JRPGs though, it's in a class of its own.

I already have the Platinum for the US version of the game and can't wait to do it all again when the game comes out here at the end of the month. Also very detailed review and anyone thinking of getting the game should give it a read so they know what they are getting themselves in for.

This game is frigging awesome and Addicting, so far I have about 20 hours logged in, I saw people that have over 200 hours in, when you go way up the stairs you can see other players who are ranked, I saw a few with 200+ hours LOL, I was like D+mn :).

It's a friggin awesome game, combat is allot like the PC game "Mount and Blade", you have to learn your opponent and swing on a timely manner.

It's one of the best games I've ever played. It's not as difficult as many people make out, it's just different. It's a game where skill and timing are the key to success. And what makes the game for me a classic is the sheer atmosphere, the lack of a consistant soundtrack makes things more tense and is a stroke of genius.

And contary to popular belief it is one of the best looking games on the ps3. I cannot stress enough that if you don't own a ps3, if you are a gamer, you owe it to yourself to get one and play this game.

And MP has never been done in the way this game has implemented it.
waltercross  +   1915d ago
LOL, yeah the MP in DS is very clever.

for those who haven't played DS and don't know what we are talking about I'll explain.

If your PS3 is hooked up to the Internet it'll go on the DS server, and often times you'll see other people in soul forms playing and doing there thing, It is like a MMPOG but where you have your own Instance of game, so they don't affect your game and you don't affect theres, tho you can be Invaded by a Black Phantom who can fight you.

I fought one Black Phantom, not sure if it was a NPC or a player, I won pretty easily. Is there NPC Black Phantoms? maybe a more experienced player can answer that.
Apolloeye  +   1914d ago
NPC Black phantoms will arrive at certain places if the tendency is pure black.
waltercross  +   1914d ago
Thank you Apolloeye.

Glad the EURO gamers are getting a hold of this masterpiece
Aphe  +   1915d ago
I imported it last year, sod waiting all this time to play it. Glad they eventually got it here, but still, what a pisstake. Europe is a big market, should have got it here ages ago.
thief  +   1915d ago
Cant agree more. I bought this imported for £65 a few months back – what a rip off!
stevenhiggster  +   1915d ago
I know it doesn't really matter but is it not Namco who are publishing it in the EU not Capcom as he stated?
thewhoopimen  +   1915d ago
This is definitely the best game to have come out of Japan this Gen so far. I have enjoyed playing this game far more than even some Bioware titles for both its story and hardcore gameplay. I want the sequel!
MAGNUM-RAM  +   1915d ago
I told ya the graphics were awesome.
Also, doesn't demons souls make fable 2 look silly now?
Demons souls is everything fable 2 was supposed to be. I can't believe Adam sessler of G4 TV gave fable 2 goty. I know gamespot gave demons souls goty but if sessler loved fable 2 so much I would think he would have eloped & married demons souls.

Even if you quit demons souls for 6 months because of the difficulty, you wake up everyday strategizing about it. LoL! If you Die before beating the game it will be on your top ten list of regrets. Just knowing that your body rots when you are in soul form is a stain in your mind that you cannot forget.

haha this is true
its only tough the first time tho :p.

1st time it took me 47+ hours to beat the game at lvl 50ish

2nd time with new data took me only 26 hours, made awesome weapons, and im lvl 110 and did almost all the tendancy events in white.

its just how you tackle the game.

i actually made an attractive female aswell which is almost impossible in the game lol
karl  +   1915d ago
i bought the game months ago.. and i quit after getting my ass kick by the flamelurker...

i beat the bastard with some phantom's help yesterday but then i consume the soul.. i didnt f*cking know that i was suppose to give it to ed..

well finally i started all over again today.. and finally got the hang of the game... i hate it... NOW IS MY FAVORITE GAME!
Greek God  +   1915d ago
