  Utterly excellent

| | See all Geeves's reviews (2)

Incredible game - currently bettered only by Dark Souls. It is difficult but the difficulty is surmountable with patience and some common sense. The game does not require the same level of sheer skill as, say, Street Fighter or GT5, but as you are often so hopelessly outmatched against normal enemies, let alone bosses, the satisfaction from completing just parts of each level is highly rewarding. Dark Souls offers a slightly different experience as the levels are more inter-connected and there's less portal-hopping but they are both excellent and well worth the full price, let alone the 10-15 pounds this one's now going for.

The only (minor) problem is the level of grinding if you're going for the platinum. Some items require either luck or tens of hours to obtain so this can be frustrating if you're not one of the lucky ones. This should in no way discourage you from buying and playing this. A lot.

  Actually Challenging

| | See all DJPearson's reviews (5)

Stick at this game, you'll play the first level and get very frustrated! keep at it. no saves between levels but its not as unforgiving as it seems. as you progress through a level you unlock shortcuts to get back to where you died quicker. a really challenging game for once. i love it
Graphics are very good, and the game is very dark and a little jumpy but not exactly scary.

  Best RPG Ever played

| | See all mikejt72's reviews (11)

I bought this game last year and struggled to get into it, when other games came out I decided to play those however in the last few weeks I saw it on the shelve and thought "hey why not give it another go" and I glad I did. One of the most greatest games I have ever played in the last 20 years. In my opinion better then the Elder scroll's skyrim and I love that game. It's a very hard game but very awarding like most have mentioned in other reviews. If you love RPGs I recommend buying this. You won't be disappointed.

  Best PS3 Exclusive?

Demon's Souls is extremely difficult, and you'll get frustrated a lot while playing the five different worlds. There are 16 different bosses, and expect a lot of tries and failing. But if you dare to take a challenge, you really should try this. Best PS3 Exclusive? Absolutely!

  Hard, brutal and unforgiving but......

| | See all sidneyjfoden's reviews (2)

Yes it is hard and brutal and very unforgiving but it is also one of the most rewarding games I have ever played in all the 20 years that I have been playing games. This is hard core RPG but don't let that or the unforgiving nature of the game put you off. In fact that is what makes this game so unique. There is a learning curve with this game and once you learn to learn from your mistakes, you approach the game in a different manner and progress is made. I never thought that I would ever finish this game but after 56 hours, I slayed the final demon. Call of duty,Gears or any of those games have never satisfied me the way this game has and I can't wait for Dark Souls.

  Requires patience!

This game requires way too much patience. I love an RPG, but the constant dying followed by repeating of levels,respawning of slain enemy's and no check points was too much for me. You don't even get a choice as to what difficulty you play at! I hope this is corrected for Dark Souls.

  Awful

| | See all omnibeing's reviews (2)

This game looks great, shows promise, but is utterly, depressingly boring. I cannot see why anybody would want to buy a game where you have to replay a level at least 5 or 6 times, just to get past the first level. Absolutely horrific.

I had to just say having had a go on Demons Souls for last 5 hours, one word I very rarely use to state how epic a game truly is and that is BIBLICAL

I read a lot of reviews about this game. In the first place I was a little sceptical, but when I bought it I realized that it was unique, tough and challenging. The graphics are very good with great visuals, the gameplay is solid and hard but it rewards you time to time. The story is unique and solid and it its clearly one of the best exclusives for PS3.
