Gamers new to DS - this is a third person action adventure game with RPG elements relating to improving your character's abilities, weapons, spells etc. The game is - as ever - a deeply atmospheric affair drawing inspiration largely from western medieval history and fantasy. Players can choose how their character develops throughout the game by investing statistic points (souls) into various character traits such as strength, intelligence, dexterity and vitality. Each weapon, piece of armour or spell yields different levels of effectiveness depending on the player's stat build - want to be a hammer wielding warrior? Invest in strength. Want to be an adept sorcerer flinging spells left, right and centre? Invest in intelligence. And so on.
The game's combat is highly nuanced and will come across as highly frustrating to begin with. Enemies are plentiful, quick and obnoxiously agressive. This is the main sticking point for many newcomers to the Souls series. This is not a button mashing affair like Devil May Cry or God of War, this is in essence a tactical fighting mechanism which requires the player to approach each confrontation carefully and with a well thought-out game plan. If you do not have the patience for this, I would honestly steer you away from DS3.
The game - like the previous installments on PS3/Xbox360 - is very long and overflowing with content.Read more ›
For those unfamiliar with the games, Dark Souls III is an action RPG with a heavy focus on exploration and tactical combat. That's not to say there is a lack of story, in fact, there is plenty, however it's through lore found throughout the game from talking to characters, examining item descriptions and essentially piecing the bits together rather than presented to you on a plate. The exploration isn't just in the physical levels but feels like you're really exploring a whole world. The level design to Dark Souls III is superb, after picking your appearance and class and being dropped in the game you will travel through castles, undead villages, swamps, unlocking various shortcuts and hidden items as you explore.
Combat in the Dark Souls games isn't your normal game, if you just try and hack your way through the game you will die. Dark Souls is a game that rewards patience, looking for gaps in an enemies attack to counter attack, luring them away from the pack, hitting them with traps etc. I have heard a lot of people describe these games as hard, they aren't that bad, punishing for mistakes yes and not very forgiving but I have always found them fair. Normally when I died it's because I over extended at a time I knew it was dangerous to do so rather than roll away or hide behind my shield and suffered the (painful and often efficient) consequences.Read more ›
If you are new to this franchise, then prepare for a lot of frustration but a sense of achievement that you just don't get with other games. It can be difficult as a new comer to the series, and a lot of people don't perceive past the first few hours. I fully recommend sticking with it! You will get the hang of rolling and dodging attacks, and before you know it you'll maybe even kill a few bosses! The story is very complex and most people, like me, don't appreciate the depth of story telling that goes on. There are lots of YouTube videos that go into the story in depth, so don't worry if part of the story goes over your head.
Having done that I can say I'm very pleased with it. I think it has overtaken Dark Souls 2 and Demon's in my list of favourite souls games , is behind Dark Souls 1 and equal to Bloodborne,
The game continues in the deeply challenging and engrossing style of the Souls series and now has a slightly faster feel, perhaps borrowing something from Bloodborne.
Once again the world is beautifully realised. This time though there is a central hub connecting the world, similar to the Nexus in Demon's Souls, though you can travel between many areas once your begun to explore (and there is a handy warp function right from the start this time).
As with previous games you can summon others to help you in a game, or to duel with but you must be "embered" (human in Dark Souls) to do so. This comes with the risk of being invaded and, on PS4 especially, the healthy server population means this is very frequent. It makes for a varied and fun experience and is helped with the existence of the Blue Sentinals (players who join a convenant that means they can be summoned at any time to help fellow players). This time your health reduces when not embered, a throwback to the original souls game Demon's Souls, a little touch that increases the challenge even further.
I'm happy to say this is another outstanding game. It looks lovely, it plays smoothly it's challenging and it's engrossing. My favourite series of all time delivers another quality game.
