Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition
« on: January 22, 2013, 05:36:25 PM »
Having only just recently played this game to death (pun not intended), I was wondering as to whether or not anyone here has tried out this blatantly frustrating game on any platform?


For those who aren't aware, Dark Souls is a third-person action adventure game with, arguably, a single premise: you're an undead tasked with a heroic, overwhelming mission to discover who you are while, more importantly, facing the daunting possibility of the last remaining sources of fire being extinguished, thus plunging the world into darkness forever.


I personally found the story to be somewhat interesting (yet no where near that of, let's say, Bioshock) with an addictive feel to it. As soon as I felt as if I had gotten a respectable grasp on the game and had finally been prepared to face the current content, I was brutally beaten to a pulp on the boss room floor, hence the difficulty. What I also found to be quite innovative was how almost every piece of help / advice came from other players through that of brief messages drawn on the floor (with the odd exception being the tutorial). Even with the co-op system being the worst I've ever seen it as the bugs were overwhelming, I still had a blast with the game overall (7/10).


Any thoughts?
