Difficult Game

arookonas | Sept. 24, 2013 | Review of Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition (NA)

This game is possible to play with Keyboard controls, but it's highly recommended to use a controller. The game also tells you VERY little about how to play. You can "reverse hollowing" to turn into a human, and summon people by touching their sign. This makes the first real boss a cakewalk. Be sure to watch everything around you. You may end up in a small hallway hallway with nowhere to dodge but forward or backward... Why would they do that? A quick look around and you can see a raised tile.... where could the trap be? Its not above you... and you can't dodge to the sides.... it could be in front of you, it could be behind you. This is where paying attention to your surroundings, really pays off, like much other "traps" in the game. Every enemy is able to kill you, so make sure to be careful and choose a healthy, tanky, dps class for your first class and playthrough.
