A review of Dark Souls, which discusses its overly-difficult nature. Lots of information and a bit of comedy to be found within plus, of course, opinion.
Classic games were so much more difficult than modern stuff. Now, hard mode is usually quite easy, equating to normal in a game from over a decade ago or longer.
yeah, i strictly play most games on hard now because it feels more like normal. especially an easy game like dead space 1 and 2, easy survival horror ruins the point of the game, and still hard is too easy
ive only played this game since last night, and i personally dont see how this could get anything other than top marks. ive lost sooo many times and im still striving to beat it without a guide or hints. this as well as demons souls are my favorite games this gen. trully a masterpiece
i beat demon's souls almost entirely alone. Felt real confident going onto Dark Souls. This game is just thrashing me. Tougher. It's pissing me off. I love it. These games should be placed in a time capsule!
in this game u almost NEED to summon phantoms. the bosses otherwise are ridiculous. trying to fight the goat thing with 2 swords in that tiny room is retarded haha
Good old Capra Demon, I have to admit he has the best theme of the bosses so far. I thought it was Shunsuke Kida doing the OST again but they got a new composer. Motoi Sakuraba is the one at the helm and so far his tracks are really powerful as the bosses themselves.
i soloed it, after second try. i play bandit, mostly str and stamina/vitality stats, no magic at all.
This is my first Souls game (no ps3) and i freaking love this game, the look, the gameplay, the patience. Fantastic!
Me and my friend are getting this for the PS3 because there will be more people online due to PSN being free. They did a great job with both versions though. But shame about the occasional framerate crash. XperiaRay
I had to cancel my pre-order, because I didn't have necessary funds on my card *CRY* I want to play this game so bad, but my finances at the moment are even worse ;(
perfect score for a perfect game. and to anybody playing now, if you just started its not too bad, thats what i though anyway at first. then you hit a place called anor londo and well, good luck lol or te demon ruins or drake valley......truly a challenge
Personally, I get way too lazy with these games. I'm pretty sure I should have beaten it around 20 hours ago, but I was having too much fun trying to kill a giant rat at soul level 15 to care. Either way, I stand by this game and the score I gave it. I just wish the capra demon didn't have two freaking dogs backing him up, they are what made that fight difficult.
review was entertaining but could have used more actual gameplay info
