Like Dark Souls the mechanics are solid with a slight learning curse. But once you've got them down you can apply them to most of the enemies in the game.
The bosses are like nothing you've dealt with before (unless you've played the 2 games leading to this one.) No one boss is like another. In fact, I don't think any boss mechanic was reused even from the previous game(s). I have yet to play Demon Souls though.
I beat the game twice before sending it back. I believe you can beat it 8 times (NG+7) with each New Game being progressively harder. If you're up for a challenge and never give up, this is a game for you.
The soundtrack, graphics, audio and Lore are outstanding as well.
I love RPGs but this one is just ridiculous. I know you're supposed to die a lot, but when you lose everything you've worked for over the past hour it's pretty disheartening. Run out of life gems and you might as well start a new game.
