"Dark Souls is as deserving of your time as Demon's Souls was the first time you made the plunge into its unrelenting premise. Its brutality is its essence and it’s perfectly realised. If this was easy, it simply wouldn’t be any fun. Prepare to break down, prepare to lose faith and prepare to die, but most of all, prepare to keep getting back up on your feet and keep going. It’s probably one of the most invigorating and addictive experiences you’ll ever take out of a videogame."
