Demon’s souls

leave a comment »

I don’t mean to scare anyone on how difficult this game is but this is one hard game. Anything in the level can kill you if you are not careful. The AI’s are smart, they don’t wait for you to be finished with one demon before they start coming after you. They will do whatever possible to try to stop you. Which means a lot of group attacks and sneak attacks. And they don’t attack each other either. I can say for certain that 90% of the enemies will work together and attack you and only you.

Another game on the PS3 that has received much heated debate. This one introduces an action online RPG. While you don’t really play with other people online if you do connect to the online network you can see the actions and deaths of other players. This provides hints and caution signs for how to work your way out of the level. You start out fighting demons and collecting their souls. Once you reach the end you fight the boss. Pretty standard but if you die you lose all the souls you have on you and you have to start from the beginning of the level. You can regain those souls if you reach the place with you dead to pick up your own soul. That’s pretty much how this game works. If you think that’s hard, the game’s stuck on hard mode. Any monster/demon/human/etc can kill you at any time during the level. And theses aren’t average NPCs or dumb boss monsters either, they will seek you out and get your soul. So you may be asking why is this game even worth picking up to begin with? Well it does one thing a lot of games don’t do nowadays; challenge the player. It forces you whether you want to or not to learn how to play the game. Makes you into a better demon slayer and rewards you with more souls if you do so. In this game you use souls to buy just about everything from state upgrades to your potions.

When it comes down to it this game isn’t for everyone. You will die and die and die. You are guaranteed to die many times more often then winning. But if you are one who likes challenges and like getting rewards for your hard work then this game is for you. At times you may feel like this game is way too hard and that you should quit. And your right it is very hard but if you keep going and make improvements i.e. learning from your mistakes, avoiding certain areas, learning weak spots,etc then you will find it very satisfying.
