I only own an XBox 360, so I missed out on Demon's Souls apart from watching a buddy of mine play it. So, when I heard that Dark Souls was coming to 360, I was all over it.

Dark Souls is not a game for the inpatient, it will test your frustration on a frequent basis, but in the end the result is a rewarding experience. The world is beautiful, the character designs are fantastic, and the gameplay is one that continues to develop as your character does.

The game is tough, there is no way around that. It will make you want to throw your controller through your TV on multiple occasions. But, when you finally succeed against that boss that has handed you your butt on multiple occasions, you can't help but be excited. The mechanics of the game are brilliant, and the way that each enemy you face has something different to challenge you makes you realize how in-depth this game really is.

This game is wonderful. It's challenging. The world is immersive. The combat is flawless. The boss fights are difficult. The equipment menu is set up perfectly, making it easy to access the items you need on a moments notice. The graphics make a dark, gloomy, depressing world, beautiful in it's own way.

However I do have a few gripes. The fact that it throws you into the game with absolutely no direction makes the game feel impossible without a walkthrough. (Unless you're online while playing, which gives you access to messages left by other players) The starting gear is near worthless, making it difficult to play without looking up how to get better gear.

Overall the game is amazing. It has excellent replay ability, due to the versatile combat system that lets you fight how YOU want to fight, and also due to the tons of different weapon types, as well as different class types.

10/10 easily. I'm not taking anything away because of the lack of direction, because I know the devs meant for direction to be the players job to provide, which only adds to the game.

I mean that. You die and lose xp just to do it again and again hoping this time you make it to a checkpoint. Plus to get the most out of the game you have to play multiple times. I love and still play but be ready to spend 100+ hours on the game.
