Hard but fair

SengChou | Dec. 29, 2012 | Review of Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition (NA)

Dark Souls is a spiritual sequel to Demons Souls the game known and loved for its difficulty. Though not set in the same world as Demons Souls a lot remains the same in Dark Souls from the difficulty to the great atmosphere in the world. The gameplay remains is nearly identical but almost everything else has been improved in some way. The world is no longer based around a nexus from where you travel to small areas but a large open world without any real loading screens. The inventory has been improved substantially. The carry limit has been removed leaving only the weight limit on items currently equiped on your character. There are an enormous amount of weapons and armor compared to Demon's Souls making customizing your character a joy. Travelling around the world the bonfires functions as safehavens and checkpoints, a place to regain your strength and plan future fights. These are but a few of the changes since there are to many to mention here and I think it is best to experience them for yourself if you decide to take the plunge into the darkness. I recommend getting a controller since the keyboard and mouse controls are poor at best.
