You will face countless murderous traps, countless darkly grotesque mobs and several gargantuan, supremely powerful demons and dragons bosses. You must learn from death to persist through this unforgiving world.

If you already own the game and just intend to get the extra area/level, you might want to download the DLC from the PSN store. If you think you'd rather own the whole thing on disc and are considering getting this edition to replace your standard one, just know that your saves will very probably not be compatible. In other words, if you levelled up a character to, say, Level 100 - you won't be able to use that progress or that character. You'll have to start from scratch again. There seems to be several versions of both editions, and they create saves that have different names. You'll find some Dark Souls (UK) and some Dark Souls (EU). The version of Dark Souls that I had was (UK), and the version of Prepare To Die I've received is (EU). Both of them purchased from Amazon, not a MarketPlace Seller. Incompatible saves.

First I'd just like to preface by saying that (even though it won't) this game SHOULD go down in history as being not only one of the best games to ever exist, but also one of the best pieces of media. The depth to the storyline, and attention to detail, make the ability to analyse the game applicable to anyone. I continually am reminded of studying shakespeare in school, and how his works can have such different interpretations and understandings, and Dark Souls is the same in the regard (not that the genre is the same).
Here are (some of) the reasons why Dark Souls is a game you need to buy right now and enjoy for the rest of your life:

1: Difficulty
Contrary to popular belief, Dark Souls is not difficult.
Dark souls is the only game i know of which lets the player themself decide EXACTLY what difficulty they want the game to be. Funnily enough, nearly every player begins the game by deciding to make the game extremely difficult for themselves. This is because most people are used to modern gaming which spoonfeeds instructions to the player, and when it doesn't they stand still and say "what do i do now?". Dark souls breaks out of this terrible habit, and makes the player explore the world around them and take their decisions into their own hands.
If I said to you, imagine a game where the enemies can only do one of a few attacks at a time, are always in the same position, and are very predictable; does that sound difficult? No, because it isn't. The illusion of difficulty arises when the player decides to sprint up to the enemy and spam attack. the illusion of difficulty arises when the player fails to pay attention to the bloodstains on the ground beside the attractive looking treasure chest.

Having been a child of the NES/SNES/Mega Drive (Genesis) days I know a thing or two about hard computer games. Whilst these consoles' (particularly the NES') reputation for difficulty more than precedes themselves, they weren't always the fairest bunch. It could be down to numerous things. Bad level design, cumbersome controls, horrendous difficulty spikes etc. However almost none of these dynamics apply to this game. I feel compelled to address this issue right off the bat because someone who's viewing this game, and is pondering purchasing it, must have heard of it's "punishing" difficulty by this stage. Well take it from me, ANYONE with ANY semblance of patience, skill, understanding and courage will have very little difficulty in conquering this (in my opinion) masterpiece of a game.

First things first, story. There's barely any, well that is to say initially. After your opening movie (no need to explain this) you wake up in an Asylum (an "undead" one), given a crappy weapon and told to go on your merry way. After that the story is barely explained, only through careful observation, i.e. checking item descriptions, listening attentively to NPC dialogue, can you begin to try piece it together. To be honest the story isn't what'll drive you through this game, nay only your willingness to succeed, get better, and realize the next glorious environment is what will.

Everything you need to know regarding basic combat btw is explained in the tutorial. How to roll, block, parry and most importantly, how to attack. Keep in mind although the game mechanics are very sound, allowing you the fairest challenge possible, there are some elements to factor into the equation.

I'd heard about Dark Souls for a while but hadn't bought a copy till late in the game's release (in fact this is the second release of Dark Souls) . The reason for this was my memories of difficult games as a young'in. Games on the Sega Master System and Mega Drive that would have me in fits of rage at their difficulty spikes. I thought this game was going to be unfair and unbalanced. I was very wrong. Dark Souls offers the kind of difficulty where you can work out why and where you went wrong. It's not the game mechanics at fault, it's the gamer's approach. That's very refreshing. Patience and lots of it are needed to progress as the game does not hold your hand through tutorials. It's very easy just to wander into an area, get killed four or five times, and then realise you probably shouldn't be there. There's really nothing explained in this game, even the story is confusing. However that's kind of the appeal, work it out for yourself. It takes time to get into this game as it will beat you around, but once you do it's one of the best game you will have ever played.
