Beautiful, compelling and unforgiving, Demon's Souls is the hardcore RPG experience PlayStation 3 owners have been waiting for since the platform's launch.

Envelop yourself in the Kingdom of Boletaria, a dark land devastated by the cruel fog that brings demons to feast on mortal souls. Vanquish monstrous demons in unforgiving combat and collect their souls to grow your own power. Progress through a non-linear world exploring ancient castles, deep caves and dark tunnels littered with deadly traps.
To succeed you will need to adapt your character, your equipment and your tactics to every unpredictable situation.

Revolutionary online features will support your adventure like never before, presenting seamless interconnectivity that serves in every instance to enhance the single-player game. Team up with other players in simultaneous cooperative play, working together to topple some of the game's colossal bosses, or force your way into the games of skilled players and challenge them to PvP battle.

Leave hints and clues for those who will follow in your footsteps. Your bloodstains, left either intentionally or through your own inadvertent demise, will allow your successors to view a replay of your death, helping them to avoid your gruesome fate. Unprecedented in its depth and subtlety, peerless in its relentlessly challenging gameplay, Demon's Souls is the ultimate action RPG.

King Allant the XII, the last king of Boletaria, searched tirelessly to expand his might. The Nexus, a great ice shrine nestled in the mountains, bestowed the power of the souls onto him, bringing prosperity to his kingdom. Still unsated, he returned again to the Nexus, where he foolishly awakened the Old One from its eternal slumber. This long forgotten evil, now wrought upon Boletaria, plunged the realm into darkness and fog. A mighty demon horde poured into the kingdom, devouring the souls of men.

Champions from other realms learned of Boletaria's fate and sought to deliver the kingdom from evil; none would return from the cursed land. Called upon by a mysterious maiden in black, you go forth, the last hope for humanity in a place lost to demons and darkness.

Like the other reviewers I have nothing but praise for this game.

It has a reputation of being incredably difficult but thats not strictly true. There's just more thnking involved than slashing. You have to plan your attacks and take into account the patterns of the enemy and how they are grouped. Just the little things like choosing to use a "thrusting" weapon like a Rapier instead of a "wide arc" one like an axe in enclosed spaces so you don't keep wasting your attacks hitting walls.

The combat is really solid and it's good to have a game where not every foe falls with a couple of slashes. Took on a blue-eyed knight and it was one of the best gaming experiences I've ever had. He fought using cunning and tactics, even backing away to swig a health potion when I'd got him low. Because I was a lighter character I had to use my speed to flank him and stay well out of the way of his attacks as I wouldn't last long against them at all.

I love the fact that you're always on-line and other players appear in ghost form and can leave you messages. Several times I avoided traps thanks to these timely warnings...brilliant traps though they were. Clicking on a bloodstain on the floor allows you to see a ghost replay of a recent players death which you can use to determine the sort of foes you may be encountering ahead.

Oh, and did I mention the fact that it is a stunning looking game? The vistas when you break out of the dungeons are vast and gorgeous. The whole game is veneered in a fantastically epic theme, a mixture of isolation and heroic exploration. Really tense yet never terrifying.

Buy this game, you'll not regret it ... ever.

 Almost on Uk shores, released in May all being well

Well, I could not wait and imported it last year! I got this in November and yes, I am still religiously playing it!!! I have sank hours into this game not because I have to (finished it many times) but becasue i want to. It;s just so playable!! then theres all the player vs player action as you forge the perfect character with the best combination of weapons and armour!!!
If you liked Resi 4 , monster hunter and RPG's in general, you will fall in LOVE with this game, but be warned, the game will never love you back, it will vaguely tollerate you and not try to befriend you. It will test your patience, fear and skill thresholds to the limits, you will have the hairs on the back of your neck stand up and spend hours thinking of ways to improve your skills, (even when you sleep) it will consume you. Oh and when another player invades your game and is there in front of you 1 on 1, wanting to kill you and take your body (and souls) , you will feel the adrenalin pumping through your veins!! the fight may be over in seconds or minutes, but either way you will be back for more, even though you will never really know why you are hooked on this game, you just will be. Enjoy, and be prepared to let the dust settle on ALL your other games for a very long time!! But ONLY if you are up for the challenge and are a competent gamer.

 Game of the Generation - no question!

I play games...a lot of games. Not the movie tie-ins or party games...real games. I've played and completed the best this generation has offered - Metal Gear 4, Halo 3, Fallout 3,God of War 3, Heavy Rain, Battlefield, Mass Effect 2, COD, Street Fighter 4, Gears 3 and Mario Galaxy 1 & 2. I know good games! This is truly special. The most original, atmospheric, challenging and rewarding game of the last decade. To be better than the games I mentioned it has to be. Find it! Buy it! And remember...never run and always have your shield up!

i was put off this game by the difficulty. I seen in videos of this game and just thought na aint worth the stress but then i brought this limited edition of the game and gave it a try i found it very hard but if you are struggling you can summon help from other users on psn. The GREAT thing about this black phantom Ed is that you get a guide so if you dont have psn then you can follow the guide that is very in depth and easy to follow. my fav game for long time.

 testing - tough and an astonishing game.

The basic reviews are true - this game IS hard - but also absaloutley fantsastic and so addictive from start to finish.
You will curse and shout and maybe have to put it down for a while as you strategically prepare for another onslaught on the demon that felled you. For all of those that love games in general, you MUST try DEMONS SOUL'S. Simply put - its - BRILLIANT.
