Dark Souls is the spiritual successor to the widely acclaimed action RPG Demon's Souls by From Software. Dark Souls is a brand new action RPG (role playing game) set in a rich, dark fantasy universe. Tense dungeon crawling, fearsome enemy encounters and groundbreaking online features combine for a truly unique RPG experience. Dark Souls breaks down barriers with a seamless world design that encourages exploration and fosters an adaptable gameplay experience. As players encounter terrifying enemies and discover new areas, the unerring foundation of challenge and reward permeates to offer an unparalleled sense of achievement.

Storyline:
Demons, spawned by the wrath of gods, have brought darkness to the world. Stricken by the curse of the undead, many have lost their souls. Players must battle hideous demons and unimaginable monsters to collect souls and find the Eternal Flame of Life, which is losing its power to restore souls and keep the eternal night at bay.

  • Seamless environments in a dark fantasy universe: abandoned castles infested with the undead, labyrinthine catacombs, a world of sunken ruins, haunted forests, vast dungeons and magical lakes are all there for the courageous to explore at will
  • Expanded RPG elements: plentiful options to customise characters with different equipment, weapons and spells will provide players a deep RPG experience
  • The Beacon Fire: placed at strategic points throughout the game world, the Beacon Fire serves as a Recovery, Restart and Sharing Point
  • Unique online features

 Brutally brilliant.

This is not for those of you video game players who like a game to hold your hand all the way through. You will die. A lot. The game is difficult, for sure. But overcoming this harsh difficulty and succeeding is thoroughly rewarding, and feels like you have truly accomplished something. The graphics are gorgeous, combat is tactical and the game is very addictive. Requires skill, perseverance and dogged determination to play and master. If you lack in these... the game will beat you instead.

 Its good, but very hard!

This game is Hard! I have completed almost every RPG on the market, and this game beat them all for its unbelievable difficulty. Defiantly not for the feint of heart. The dark gothic setting as well as the lack of player to NPC dialogue makes this game feel very lonely to me. You never develop any character friendships which i think is vital for RPGs. The storyline is pretty much non existent. But the game sort of makes up for this with the awe inspiring bosses as well as awesome arms and armour. I enjoyed playing this game, however buy the game walkthrough, or you will be left utterly bewildered as to what to do next and were to go. You can miss out on a lot of game content by mistake. I had the manual for 'demon souls' and it just gave me a good sense of direction so to speak. If you play dark souls with out it, it can be annoyingly confusing, its as if the developers just expect you to intrinsically were to go and what to do. I spent 3 hours just trying to find an NPC with the right potions to cure a disease!

 awesome game

I have to just say I love this game its hard and yet never unfair any time u die its your fault and not the games. You cant hack and slash your way through this like u can in Skyrim you have to learn the enemys and bosses pattern. This may put some casual gamers of but the hardcore gamers who love a challange will love this game. It took me 200 plus hours to get the platinum and I enjoyed every minute of it thx 4 reading hope this helps =)
