I'd heard a lot of mixed reviews on the Dark Souls games. Great,, too hard,, frustrating etc. But the overwhelming high rating and reasonable price made my mind up.... Initially wow, graphics nice and conrols fairly easy to grasp. Then comes the hard stuff, fighting mechanics, not your usual arcade stuff, realism, once you commit to attack you can't just change your mind and move away, if you've timed it wrong you'll pay the price. Most times its better to let the enemy have a go first and attack while they regain posture. Learn to roll, dodge or use sheild. It takes a while to get the hang of it, and as others have said a fair bit of grinding to build up your stats,, health, stamina etc to a point where the early enemies become easy. But thats the point, you have to keep at it, you learn when to dodge back and when to strike, learn the enemy attack moves, and ,,, the feeling of euphoria when you EVENTUALLY take down that first big boss is your reward. It may not be for everyone and it does take work, you will as countlessly mentioned in other reviews,, die,, a LOT... but if you think the price is worth a gamble go for it. I got hooked and have moved onto Bloodborne, which some will find a bit easier even though you're without sheilds it's an awsome game all round,, and I also have Dark Souls 3 ready in the pipeline.
