Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Without going into too much detail, Demon's Souls is by far one of the greatest games I have come across. Many months ago, I was a bit reluctant to buy it after having purchased many games in a short time span, but I was very glad when I finally purchased it.

The game is challenging, but not too challenging. Learning the ways of the enemy is key in helping you progress. Leveling up using souls you have collected can make you withstand more hits, carry more items, have increased stamina or cast more spells, but picking a base class at the start of the game doesn't limit you to what you can do.

Dying, will no doubt happen very often, but that isn't the end of the game. It actually helps you because it allows you to learn from your mistakes. If you die, you lose your souls, your means of leveling, your currency for trade, etc, but if you can manage to make it back to your blood stain, then you can reclaim the souls you lost. If you die on the journey to your blood stain though, you lose the last lot of souls you were trying to reclaim and drop any you had picked up on the way. You can however, travel to that last place to pick those up, collecting more souls along the way, but if you die, the cycle continues.

There are 5 worlds, but multiple levels within each and though I haven't had the game long, it is not linear, in the sense that you have to complete each world, from 1-5. You will need to play through World 1 - Level 1 and defeat the first boss, after which you are free to roam all of the other worlds in any order you please.

5.0 out of 5 stars Devilishly good 20 Aug 2010
By Trigger
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It's hard to think of another game which is as innovative and yet old-school, so punishing and yet open-ended, so brief and yet expansive as Demon's Souls is. It has been called everything from the best PS3 game to the hardest RPG ever, and having now earned the Platinum trophy over 75-odd hours, I'm inclined to agree with all the praise that has been heaped on this wonderful game.

My single favourite aspect is the combat. There's nothing quite like clashing with a tough enemy with a tight defence, rebuffing their attacks whilst waiting for an opportune moment to counter or parry. There are literally dozens of weapons in the game, from rudimentary swords, bows, spears and so on through to mighty blades which cleave the sky in twain. That every foe can, at the outset, defeat you if you let your guard down adds to the tension and makes every single battle intense and fraught.

You collect souls from each enemy you defeat, and these can then be traded for upgrades, items and weapons. However, should you die, you're returned to the start of the level, all enemies respawn and you lose accumulated souls, which languish where you died, awaiting to be re-collected (until you die again, then they're gone). It's a perfect risk/reward system, and the game thrives on careful play and forward planning. Most levels aren't particularly big, but with the number of enemies populating them, they can easily each take over an hour to complete. Luckily the game autosaves continuously, so if you do need to switch off mid-level you can do so and return later with no punishment. Shortcuts are also available in most levels, so huge chunks can be cut out if necessary, and these are permanently unlocked once activated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best game of 2010 (PAL Version) 13 Nov 2010
By The Fault VINE VOICE
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Demon's Souls had me interested ever since I first read a review of it on import in Games magazine. It got 10 out of 10 and much was made about the difficulty - the screen shots captured in the magazine looked fantastic but I was put off by the comments made as to how hard this game is. That was back in 2009 and after much deliberation as to whether I should chance getting an import copy I eventually decided to wait for the Black Phantom Edition once it was announced that a PAL version would be released in the UK.

Now the introduction is out of the way, let's move swiftly onto my experience of the game. It is most definitely a challenging game to say the least, it took me six hours and dozens of deaths just to complete the first level (after the tutorial, which is great introdction to the game I might add). I must profess that I haven't progressed much further into the game despite devoting several more hours on it. Normally, such slow progress would frustrate me to to point that I would give up on the game. So why not Demon's Souls? Put simply, it is such a rewarding experience that it just sucks you in. Dying becomes part of the learning process - you learn the layout of the level, the foes you will face and other dangers to look out for. So the game had me carefully edging my way through the perilous and imposing environments - it is really tense at times not knowing what may be lurking around the next corner and I haven't experienced a game like this in the current generation of consoles. You can't simply run through the whole game (alhough there are moments where you need to just run and hope) because you need to exert real care and thought as you progress.
