This game is like nothing I've ever played before and I loved every minute of it. The sense of accomplishment and progression kept me coming back for more. The beggining can be quite unforgivingly difficult, but with enough practice you can easily become a pro. If you dont care about spoilers I'd highly recommend using a guide as the amount of content this game has to offer is almost impossible to uncover all by yourself.
The main thing that ticks me off about the game is you die really easy compaired to most games. And you lose all the souls you worked to get and start back at the last bonfire you save/rested at. Then one time someone online showed up and was chasing me all over and finally killed me and I lost all my souls I had worked so hard to get think I was over 10,000.
Those complaints aside the game was nicely laid out, and controls were easy to use and understand. Graphics were pretty good as well. Did not even get close to beating the game, but will give it another try in the future. If you like RPG some on-line enabled game I recommend giving this one a try.

To people saying this game is extremely difficult (especially the ones bashing it), it really isn't. It requires more patience and thinking (wow what a concept, I can't just blitz through something because I'm invincible) then most games. But even then, this concept is lost more and more as you progress. The game becomes EASY later, until you do NG+ and even then you can pretty much break the game with certain things.
A lot of the stuff in this game is experimental and that may bother some people because it breaks the mold and that's fine, people like what they are comfortable with but this game tried new stuff and succeeded and when people bash this game not because of it's problems (it has a lot) but because they are terrible at games and can't roll then they should find another hobby because we need more games like this.
