2.0 out of 5 stars Be wary!, 30 Oct. 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dark Souls Prepare to Die Edition (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
This is not the same 'prepare to die' edition that is available for PC users. There is no artbook, cards, making-of, soundtrack here.
Only the original game + the Artorias DLC on the same disc, and that's all folks.

Very disappointing edition (2 stars), but still the greatest game in recent years (5 stars and beyond).

You give it 2 stars and tell people to be wary, then say it's the greatest game in recent years and is 5 stars and beyond. Maybe you should review cakes instead of games. I just want the game and Artorias dlc on the disk, for less than £25 this is a great deal. if you want all that extra stuff buy the PC version, PC games are cheaper which is why they could include that stuff, if the art book and soundtrack was in the 360/PS3 version it would cost about £35-£40.

Same title, different editions. If you don't think that it deserves to be noticed to others buyers, well, maybe you're the one that should stick to cakes....

The game is great, the packaging is poor, that's why the different ratings.

I don't know what you expect for less than £25, but you're not going to get art books and soundtracks and signed photos of the developer team or personal invites to their birthday parties or whatever else you think you deserve with your game for £25. The DLC alone is worth £9.99. I think 2/5 is very harsh, USA did not even get the DLC on disk for 360/PS3, only Europe and Japan, we are lucky to even get this edition at all over here.

Plus there is already a Dark Souls limited edition available, that has art book and soundtrack

Dark Souls - Limited Edition (PS3)

So I don't know what you are upset about. Why do you expect a art book and sountrack with every game released?

So 2 and a half stars for the most amazing game ever + dlc but the other 2 and a half stars you did not give are for no extras like book art?

Dont review games in future , your misleading people entitled to a decent review and stopping this great developer from there due's.

Fine, warn people, but not by rating the game down! The description doesn't tell you you're getting the stuff you're complaining about, so presumably the 2stars is just for the people that don't read the description to see what's included and just *assume* it will contain more than non-Limited Editions normally contain.

Sensationalise much? Crave attention much? You must be doing it for ridiculous reason because no logic on Earth dictates the game is worth 2 stars... even your own admission of its quality.

So 5 stars for the game, but because it didn't come with extras it didn't say it would come with, chop off 3 stars. Great. A bastion of reasoned arguing you are.

I think what he's trying to say is that if you already own Dark Souls, this is a 2 star purchase, as it doesn't come with any of the extras that came with the PC edition - I personally found this review very helpful, and he does rate it 5 stars for fun.

I agree with commenters; I find it very frustrating when people downrate a game because of the extras that are or aren't included. I'm reading these things to find out about the game, not the packaging. By all means, mention it. Mention it in capitals. But don't rate the game based on stuff that is not actually the game.
