You should definitely prepare to die.Roflcatz | June 27, 2013 | Review of Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition (NA)
So as you may know, the game is question is really quite difficult. You start out as an undead monster with no backstory and no idea who you really are, aside from the somewhat basic customization that you did in the beginning of the game. This leads you to wander about, following basic instructions from writings on the floor.
What makes this game unique and stand out from any other game is the multiplayer aspect of it, in which other players can type out messages and tips for other anonymous players to see. Also, you can't choose who you play with, as the game was developed to give the player a sense of isolation and difficulty.
The gameplay is solid and smooth, and when you die you know it was because of something you did, and not the game itself. All in all, it is really worth playing if you haven't yet, and although you will get frustrated at times, it's worth it in the end to push through and finish the fight.
