there's nothing easy about this game. After a boss battle i generally relax, expecting a bit of down time. Dark Souls knows no such thing. Around every corner is something exciting, and often deadly.
Eventually you will toughen up to the difficulty level and find that it is some of the most gratifying game play to be found. The thing to remember is that its not hard just to be hard. The deaths, although many, can always be learned from. The execution is top notch and the controls will never let you down. if your tired of walking through games, then bring it. but be ready, and don't say you weren't warned.

It's dark, creepy dungeon crawling, with excellent graphics and an awesome challenge. It's NOT challenging in the way you expect a poorly designed game would be, one riddled with bugs and just pushed out the door.
THIS GAME IS A MASTERPIECE OF HARD DIFFICULTY!!!
It tells you right from the "tutorial boss fight", that you should expect to die. But unlike Demon souls, it doesn't let you go after it fades to black.
I love this game, and hate this game. It's the kind of game you know you will enjoy the frustration. Honestly, every battle is just a very challenging 4D puzzle consisting of: Skill, Luck, Timing, and Determination.
Definitely not for the feignt of heart. If you say this game sucks, it's because it tested your will, and broke you.
Only thing missing is the music, I think Craddle fo Filth would probably be a good fit, that sound is enough to make you welcome death after endless death :-)

This game by by far the best game I have ever played. It actually made me rethink some of the game I played after because they simply couldn't compare to this game.
Lots of people will give this game bad reviews because it is insanely hard but that is the point of the game. If this were an easy game it would be just like any other RPG that used swords, bows and magic. But this game is so difficult that you get such a surge of pride and excitement whenever you beat a particularly hard boss or get past that one spot that has killed you 20 times.
When I heard about this game I was told that it was the hardest game out there and me being the gamer that I am took that as a personal challenge. This game is the feather in any true gamer's cap. If you can work your way through this game you can beat anything.
