Demon's Souls Dengeki Buyer's Guide Review


A bold game pursuing for the fundamental of joy in videogames.

This is an action RPG developed by SCE and From Software. Player must hunt down demons in order to save the kingdom. Information such as where you are supposed to go or how to defeat demons is intentionally provided in limited amount, so the player has to discover by try-and-error. This, instead of being nuisance, is the appeal of the game.
Also, for online co-op, there are interesting features such as leaving a dying message to leave a clue for other players.

Pros: Due to its high difficulty, there will be many unreasonable deaths, but because of that there is a big catharsis in finding out how to over come the obstacle. Control is very responsive and simple, so fighting against enemy is a breeze. Character making and leveling up give you a lot of freedom, so creating a character of your own is quite enjoyable.

Cons: You can't pause during game. Because of its serious and tense atmosphere and game structure, it's really not for casual gamers.

Here is the image.

I believe this game is mostly for hardcore From fans since the age of King's Field, and I can't wait to get my hands on it.

King's Field kicked copious amounts of ass back in it's day. I sincerely hope SCE releases this game in North America. If not, I'll be importing the English asian version. I cannot wait for this. The KF series was very much hardcore and there's no reason for this one to be any different.

Wow theres no pause.... I want this one almost as much as I want WKC.

WKC and DS are 2 of my most wanted games. Glad this game will be difficult as too many games are on the easy side. Don't mind a challenge and look forward to this game.
