    Developer: From Software

    Dark Souls is a brand new action role-playing game developed by acclaimed studio From Software. Spiritual successor of the award winning Demon’s Souls, set in a rich, dark fantasy universe, Dark Souls features tense dungeon crawling, fearsome enemy encounters and ground-breaking online features which combine for a truly unique RPG experience. Dark Souls breaks down barriers with a seamless world design that encourages exploration and fosters adaptability. As players encounter terrifying enemies and discover new areas, the game's foundation of challenge and reward permeates the experience to provide an unparalleled sense of achievement

    Demons, spawned by the wrath of gods, have brought darkness to the world. Stricken by the curse of the undead, many have lost their souls. Players must battle hideous demons and unimaginable monsters to collect souls and find the Eternal Flame of Life, which is losing its power to restore souls and keep the eternal night at bay.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Tough Love 8 Oct 2011
    Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    I've just spent the best part of a day playing a very small section of Dark Souls in that time I've dead nearly 10 times, lost 1000's of souls(the in-game currency) and nearly given up the desire to keep playing. So why do I love this game so much?
    The answer lies in the feeling of euphoria after defeating a boss or in making a little bit more progress. Make no mistake this is one unforgiving game: make a mistake, the game punishes you; get too complacent around any enemy, the game punishes you. But you learn and you (very) gradually get better.
    If you've played Demons Souls, you'll encounter some of the same gameplay mechanics. But there is much that has changed. In Demons Souls, you could make the game slightly easier by playing as a magic user. In Dark Souls, magic is restricted to a number of uses and then you have to engage in combat. In the previous game, there was a central hub with access to all the levels; in the new game, it is more of an open world.
    There are some niggles such as an occasional frame rate drop and the game explains very little (though some may see this as a positive!).
    Would I recommend this game?
    Absolutely. Just be prepared. Don't be afraid to use a wiki-the game cover actually mentions one. Don't be afraid to make mistakes. Don't be afraid to stop playing if it gets too tough. This is not a game to be played whilst you're angry about your previous death. Don't be afraid to take it slowly. This is an epic game.
    It's certainly not for everyone but this is a game that makes me happy to be a gamer.

    5.0 out of 5 stars From Software does it again! 7 Oct 2011
    Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    Ignore the troll review that was posted before this - I ordered the xbox 360 version from amazon and the PS3 limited edition - one of which came early.

    I've invested about 15 hours so far, and let me tell you, this game is utterly fantastic, just like Demons Souls was previously. To check my validity, please see my previous Demons Souls review as the same title - I am a Demons Souls vet and I invested around 500 hours total into Demons Souls (NG+++++). Needless to say, it is my favorite game of this gen and Dark Souls had a LOT to live up to. But thankfully, it does.

    If you are a Demons Souls veteran, you will already know what to expect here - Rich, deep and a challenging gameplay in a dangerous and atmospheric world filled with ridiculously powerful enemies and very little mercy. From Software is easily my favorite developer now and for me, this is their Magnum Opus.

    If you have never played Demons Souls, nor this, here is my review.

    Dark Souls is a spiritual successor to Demons Souls, 2009's game of the year (Gamespot, IGN, etc gave it more than just that award too). It's a dark fantasy action rpg set in the medieval period where you play an undead fellow on a pilgrimage through possibly the most brutal game world I've ever seen. You start in a damp and destroyed asylum for the undead, you must pick your class from a range of different abilities and stats (Knight, warrior, barbarian, Pyromancer, Sorcerer, Cleric, Thief... just to name a few, there is 9 total to chose from). Once you select your class, you are given a broken set of armor and a terrible weapon and kicked out of your cell into a very unforgiving and very tough world.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Its going to be dark this Christmas 14 Oct 2011
    By FENTOT
    Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    So the reviews have come and gone and Dark Souls slides down the rankings as bigger games start to fight for the Christmas 2011 market. Games aren't cheap and I wonder how many of those who bought Dark Souls last week - and didn't realise the work they would need to put into the game - are now trading in their copy for something requiring a little less patience.

    As for me - a week later I have managed to drag my beaten hollow body up to the top of the cathedral and rung the bell. I've raised my shield and prayed that this time the white mist wouldn't lead to another unspeakable monster. I've clung to every shard, splinter and chunk, terrified I will waste them. I've run frantically swinging my sword after scurrying lizards and cried as they disappear before me - wondering if Ill ever finish this game .. cos next time Ill get you. I've stared into the distance and realised I have only just scratched the surface when suddenly... 'YOU DIED'.

    No game has gripped me this way since 'Demon Souls' and before that, 'Elite'. The reviews you have read speak the truth. People will either learn to beat it or they wont - and their reviews will reflect this fact.

    This game will reward you with a memory that other games forgot to include - if you let it beat you there is always the trade in option.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive, challenging, engrossing, amazing.. 16 Oct 2011
    Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    Dark Souls is incredibly engrossing, very challenging, and for me, an extremely addictive game.

    I find myself thinking about it when I'm not playing, I lie awake in bed planning my next foray into it's dark and twisted world. Maybe I'll have better luck next time with that electricity-spitting Drake....

    When I am playing, I find myself staying up into the early hours of the morning, getting later and later. The game is bad for my health, and my married life!
    A game that does these things, has got to be good!

    It's predecessor, "Demon's Souls", is one of my all time favourite games, in fact I bought a PS3 just so that I could play it. I've really looked forward to Dark Souls' release and I'm pleased to report it has not disappointed in any way.

    BUT...

    If you don't like hard games, if you need games to point you in the right direction, If you need hints to get you going, if you expect your character to be an instant rock hard fighter from the very beginning, if you don't like grinding, If you don't like losing all your hard fought-for souls (the games currency)and then going all the way back to the last save and doing the level all over again, If you don't like dying again and again and again - if you don't like these things in a game then Dark Souls may not be for you.
    You have been warned.
    If you buy Dark Souls after these warnings and find you don't like it, then it would be unfair for you to come back to Amazon and award the game a 1 star score like some other reviewers.
    This is how the game is, it was created to grind you down, to destroy your spirit, to make you feel alone and helpless and lost, but also to give you a fantastic sense of achievement whenever you prevail under such difficult circumstances.
