GOONL!NE Review: Demon’s Souls

James Love, GOONL!NE writes: "There are many now who yearn for the old days of video gaming. Much like how the Daily Mail claim that today’s exams for students are ‘too easy’ and qualifications are handed out to any Tom, Dick or Harry, there are also those in the gaming community who believe the real challenge in many games now is gone, that in a bid to appeal to the masses they’ve been made to accessible. Well, you can cross Demon’s Souls off that list with a big thick marker."

guys its not that hard i dont know what the complaining is all about
its really easy in my opinion most of the bosses took my the first time to kill them even garl vinland the only boss that wass annoying was the king dorian and allant but if you know there weaknes then there cake

I agree the game isn't that difficult. The parts that make it difficult can be the trophies, which require very specific things of you that can be difficult to do and not ruin your chances of getting other trophies without having to a half dozen play-through where it becomes more difficult each play-through. I remember screwing up against the crystal geckos that drop the darkmoonstone in world 4 so many times and letting them get away that I didn't get my pure darkmoonstone until my 4th play-through.

I personally think that the game's perceived difficultly is highly dependent on how you play the game. For example if you are the kind of person who goes and reads online strategy guides before you even attempt a boss, then you will know the tricks to beating it and probably beat it on the first or second try.

Also if you tend to summon many blue phantoms to aid you then even if you don't know whats going on they probably do and can 'drag' you through the level.

If, however, you run the game solo and don't look at strategy guides it can be a very challenging and rewarding experience. One thing we should all agree on though is that this game captures the essence of video games from the NES era.

Maybe the reviewed it as a RPG, and the lack of cities, dialogs, NPCs, quest removed the 2 points

That is why you have one bubble.

Ares84PS32195d ago

This game is 9.5/10 or even 10/10.

The best RPG on PS3 without a doubt!

Matthew942195d ago

no. there is no story and therefore no strong reason to play on. its just boss fight after boss fight with a cutscene once in a while.

It gets tedious. I would have given it a 7.

SephireX2195d ago

You play on for the challenge and fun of the combat. There doesn't need to be a story. FFXIII has all the story in the world but... Well need I say more?

''there is no story and therefore no strong ''

Lol.

Wondering why Gamespot gave the award of the Game of the Year.
