Dark souls is one of the hardest games I have ever played. With that being said be ready to die A LOT! I like this game for that reason. This is not one of those games that you can get to a point where the enemy's and bosses are push overs. Be ready to save a lot and do some thinking about what you upgrade and when. the enemy get stronger and stronger the farther you get in the game and so do the bosses.

If you like games that challenge you then this is a good one for you. If you like games that are at some point a breeze to play then look else where this game just keeps getting harder the longer you play. Even if you go back to some of the first kills of the game.

To me it seems like the enemy upgrade along with you so as you level up so do they. Like the other reviews said this is not one of those games you can just cost though you have to be aware of your surroundings at all times and think use strategy or pay the price.

This game is very decent.the biggest flaw I've found is how slow the character moves and how un athletic he is. I had fun with the story and challenging myself with its difficulty. The game is very very hard and will probably annoy most players. You can beat a Skelton with ease over and over then for some unknow reason they will have super powers and block and kill you with a few unlockable flurry of attacks. The player isn't really in control of the fighting as much as other hand to hand combat games. Some aspects of the game deserves a 10/10 and some deserve a -10/+10. The fighting is the only downside of this game. Very very un orthodox movements and slow attacks even with light one-handed weapons. This is the only reason I see the game getting lower reviews. For those who move at slow speeds mentally will love this game and will absorb all aspects of it. Overall it is fun but its very slow paced.VERY SLOW PACED lol. Pick it up if you like rpg games it's worth trying. Be warned, if you are a little quick minded and get aggitated at delayed button responses you will hate this game.I beat the game and will admit that it's difficult. This game would be suiting for all gamers if the controls wern't so delayed. Great attempt developers. I applaud the effort. But in dark souls 3 let's give the character some speed.
