Tyler Lee of Great Gaming Crusade says: "From Software’s unforgiving venture into the world of Demon’s Souls was an unforgettable experience for all. For some, it was the ultimate test of patience and skill, yet for others it was merely an exercise in controller breaking rage. For me it was the former. Love it or hate it, it was something different and successful. Dark Souls continues this trend of no mercy gameplay with increased vigor. It’s bigger, longer, more in-depth, and yes more ruthless."
