NowGamer review of Demon's Souls (PAL Version)
--------------------------- I've read from someone's that European gamers might never comes out from their room after playing this game, lol.
This game is the bomb. GOTY 2010 for me, deep gameplay, great atmosphere, interesting online, challenging, rewarding, and definitely a risk that pulled of well. Was playing it yesterday. Sadly I think a lot of people have either stopped playing, or I'm just in an area nobody else has arrived at (stage 1 of the last world). Either less people have been playing or I've been entering into worlds less people make it into :D Anyways, the game is by far one of the best this gen. I was actually originally indifferent to the game. I had zero hype and expectations and I was blown away. It's a game with a lot of heart and it has to be admired for being so bold. Demon's Souls 2 has been knocked down by the developers but I hope that it happens. Actually, I'm still waiting for the DLC. I'm a little worried Demon's Souls is getting scrapped, because the DLC still needs to come and we need #2.
Im gonna get this soon , cant wait. Ive heard so much about it and am looking forward to dying so much as I heard its seriously hard! XD
Its not that the game is technically hard, it just forces you to learn each enemy and how they attack and move. You die rather quickly so chances are your first few fights with bigger enemies you will die trying to learn how they work, but once you learn their moves and how to parry at the right time, the game isn't to bad. Here's a tip, collect lots of grass you will need it lol
That's true, the game gets a lot easier as you progress, it's all about learning from your mistakes. When you beat the very first boss you will understand just how great the game is. It makes you feel rewarded in such a great way, like winning in MAG.
i feel more rewarded when i get to kick black phantom's butt:D bastards,invading my world...
cant bloody wait, but unfortunately have a hectic weekend at work so it will have to wait for monday tuesday when im off before i go mental on it :(
I've been reading about this game for awhile now waiting for it to come out in England. game has been getting rave reviews all over, suprised when gaming sites metion great games on PS3 they dont mention this even tho its been getting really good scores and everyone whos played it has loved it. maybe the duration between releases in each resaon has stifled it abit. but its a D1B for me.
I'm happy everytime a new group gets to play this gem. I'm hoping for a tricked out sequel in the future.
wtf, amazon.co.uk... ship it already!
I shall buy it.. when it's cheaper & in the bargain bin. :)
*points gun at enkeixpress* That way, there'll be more chances of a sequel! <_< *click... and there's no bullets* -_-"
Gun fail... damn, i didnt have my cam to post it on youtube.
Demon's Souls is a game that deserves to be bought at full price.
The only thing I didn't like about this game was how bad it lacked in explaining things. Other than that, the game is a must buy if your up for a challenge.
If you enjoy 40minute tutorials go play Fable 1/2. This game is about the learning experience. It reminds me of older games during the SNES era that didn't old your hand the whole time. This is my favorite game this gen, and defiantly one of my favorite games of all time.
Still need to tackle this one but I just got Dragon Age and Transformers so I doubt it will be this year with the huge onslaught of games coming out in the fall.
Drop both of those and play this. It's better. It gets under your skin and stays there and the feeling doesn't go away. By far the most immersive game out and rewarding as hell.
I still haven't finished Dragon Age. It's not a bad game, but I just lost interest. Demon's Souls is at a whole different level. Some here have said it was their GoTY last year. I'll go further and say it's hands down my favorite game this generation. I can't wait for a sequel and just hope they put a little more effort into story telling. Putting off Demon's Souls to play Transformers should get you a hefty fine.
One of the best game's I've ever played. Glad I imported it because it's took its sweet time getting over here. For those that haven't got it though it's well worth buying.
This was my personal GOTY. Besting the amazing Uncharted 2.
and I thought I was the only one
I had the same dark, haunting thoughts as well.......
great that it will finally be here i brought a imported copy, but im still going to buy it again.
A good tip for people wanting to play coop online early on - don't. You'll come across phantoms, and if you lose to one of them, you go down a level.
Don't play online at all until the second playthrough. By then, you should know how to play the game and won't get slaughtered so easily.
or if you are about to lose then turn game off:P
If you are a Blue-phantom. You cannot lose a level, and you can ONLY lose a few souls if a black phantom invades the host's world.
When most worlds have been visited and done some combat and bosses, get very frustrating and repeatitve, to the point i abandoned it out of boredom Should never been that "hard", in fact it is not hard, it is stupid after a while, that is the main problem
I'm sure there's some nice, lovely Kinect games for you to play if Demon's Souls is too hard for you. You can molest tigers in Kinectimals. That's much more your speed I'm sure.
Maybe its too hard for you.
exactly, it's not that hard.i had great fun playing it,especially with friends.hunting black phantoms or helping others...amazing^^
