Dark Souls
  • Description

    Dark Souls is the critically acclaimed spiritual successor to the game Demon Souls, which was released in 2009. An incredibly innovative role playing game, Dark Souls provides a completely unique concept few would dare to try to create, and makes for a once in a lifetime game playing experience. This ground breaking game has perfectly balanced intricate storyline with breath taking graphics and heart racing action, amounting to something that can be enjoyed by all. However, Dark Souls is not for the faint hearted...

    Endure spine chilling and tensely hostile environments as you travel though this vast and unwelcoming open world, a world that is home to a host of terrifying creatures and demons that want nothing more than to eviscerate you. Explore this twisted fantasy universe and trawl through dungeons, with both your wits and strength being constantly put to the test in this brutally dark and challenging third person RPG.

    You can choose from a wide and detailed variety of ten races for your character, including warrior, cleric, thief, sorcerer, hunter, and more. Each of these races have their own specialised skills, for example melee or magic, with upgrades to achieve and apply as you progress throughout the game, allowing you to truly tailor your character to your specifications. This game adds an additional feature when it comes to armour and weaponry, allowing you to forge them yourself should you not want to buy or scavenge for them. An extra twist is also presented, making death the main focus of the entire game play. This isn't always a bad thing though; dying is your education, and the theme of the cruel universe through which you trek. Within this punishing world, survival will be your utmost accomplishment, and your most impressive victory.

    The beauty about the combat in Dark Souls is that it will never truly pin you to a certain playing style; you can switch from a heavy warrior to a swift thief just by changing up your weapons and armour, and you can even become a mage or a healer by finding a sorcerer's catalyst or talisman, allowing you to be constantly fluid in your combat. Another interesting little twist in this game is the way that the bonfires you'll find placed around the world are checkpoints, where you can repair your items, refill your health flasks, and ensure it to be a respawn point should you die. Another thing you can do at a bonfire is spend the souls of your vanquished foes, which act as this game's currency, and which can be spent on levelling up, increasing your health, stamina, and magical abilities.

    There is also a definitive online co-op multiplayer experience within Dark Souls, which has you relying on other individuals throughout the game to share tips, strategies, and various knowledge to help you progress. You will be able to see the shadows of other players as they in turn trek through this vast, cruel world, and even the blood stains of where they have been smite. When you die, you will leave your own blood stain and become Hollowed, losing all souls that you have collected. However, should you make it back to your stain before being decimated again, you will regain everything that you had lost. Another resource you will be relying on throughout this game is your Humanity, gained only through items and by defeating horrendous and terrifying bosses, which can be used to light your own bonfires and revive yourself to Human.

    This incredibly imaginative game will transport you through this punishing universe, allowing you to write your own destiny, pulling you ever deeper with each victory, and completely immersing yourself in the darkness. Whether you come out alive is up to you. (Cat Emerson)

Challenging and rewarding

Dark Souls provides a tough challenge for anyone who is willing to accept it. The game is definitely hard but it never feels cheap. Mindless button mashing will lead to certain death, so every move must be thought out before being executed and no enemy must be underestimated. The reward is a feeling of true achievement that not many games offer nowadays.

simply amazing

If you offer yourself to this Dark Souls and refuse to quit before you understand the mechanics, you will simply become addicted to this game. The first hour or so can be very difficult. YouTube is your friend if you get stuck. However, stick with it and you will be rewarded with a smug grin of satisfaction! I'm on my fourth playthrough now and my character is a machine! I don't know of any other game I have played through four times, enough said.

Brilliant game

Pearl, the game hardcore and very epic!

Dark,darker,darkest.

Worth it! The game's complexity and versatility stands out immediately, the Japanese guys have done a good job! Beautiful graphics, sounds and story. It took me a while to get to grips with it, but now I can't put it down. The menu management is quite interesting, especially to people accustomed to similar games. The PvP system needs to be adapted slightly to avoid having to go through paths again (just because the opponent's character was killed by a burglar). The solution is to not be in party chat to talk to friends. He who loves games, feel free to get involved!

Dark Souls

All I can say is wow! This game is incredibly frustrating and soul-destroying, but also arguably the most rewarding game you will ever play. The effort put into this game oozes quality and shows. Once you start, you will be hooked and I can honestly say that dying has never been so much fun.

WHEN at first you don't succeed

Yes there is a lot of dying involved, yes you are incredibly vulnerable and yes it all seems so very pointless. Welcome to the first 5 hours of Dark Souls. I wanted to to say before I begin that I have never written a review before, I have played hundreds of games across a dozen genres and I have never been compelled to write a review until I played this. Dark Souls is a fantastic game, let me start by saying that, it is expansive, unique, satisfying, beautifully put together and genuinely compelling. But, to enjoy any of those features it demands that you submit to it. What I mean by that is that the game goes against all the tenants of modern gaming (no saves, no health regeneration, no PAUSE!) and unless you embrace Dark Souls' way of thinking you will never understand it, let alone enjoy it and it deserves to be understood and enjoyed because what it is doing is truly commendable. What seems like pointless difficulty and repetition is just the game breaking you down, breaking years of bad habits learned at the feet of games like Dante's Inferno and COD. Dark Souls is trying to show you another way of gaming that isn't about button bashing or being quick on the trigger but rather is about cunning and patience and self control. It will wear you down until the prospect of pressing anything other than block at the sight of an enemy will seem like madness, and if you persevere you will love it for it. I was ready to quit after my first 5 hours, I'd screamed and kicked but once I came to some simple realisations: that dying is an inconvenience, not an end, that ending a fight unscathed is more important than ending it quickly and that a victory earned is so much more satisfying than a victory button mashed, then I realised that Dark Souls embodies the kind of challenge that is too often missing from modern games and equally absent is the pure satisfaction you get from rising to it. To sum up, yes it is hard, yes it demands patience and thought and yes there will be times when you just want to cry but what it offers in return is the most genuine sense of satisfaction in a game that you have felt in a long long time.

Dark Souls

It's been a while now since I've played this game and I've played many game afterwards. But it is this game that is still on my mind as the best game of the last year(s). Looking forward to the new add-on.

Excellent

Dark Souls is the best game I have played in a long time. Amazing story and game play, and very fun to play. Recommend it SO much to anyone who likes action RPG's

Dark Souls

Dark Souls is a game full of fantasy and joy. Speaking for me, this game is the best RPG I have ever played. I was a huge fan of Diablo II and this game is some how very alike. You have to make your way through undead corpses and skeletons to get to the enormous bosses before passing to another stage. All the physics and enemy movements are astonishing, as is the art design. The game producers must be proud of their minds. The gameplay is awesome, you can experience different combos movements depending on the weapon you are using. It isn't an easy game. You've to be comfortable with the game to take some risks and advance throughout. In the beginning you'll die a lot, this is not a game for timid players. If you like to cast spells towards your enemies and stick a sword in their chest, then I've got to tell you, this is your game!

Dark Souls

Dark Souls is a nice game. It's not much more than that. The game-play is a bit difficult to understand, and the game is pretty hard too. I like the idea of making a game that will make you break a sweat, and not just mash the same buttons over and over, but it feels like there should be a little more guidance at least in the early parts.
