if you like rpg/action this is the game for you. it's really hard at first but once you get going (die a lot) it gets really cool. the online multiplayer design is brilliant. no social aspect, just gameplay. the only downer so far is not being able to sell items. this may be an option that i haven't discovered yet.
Finally from the makers of King's Field games comes Demon's Soul. This game will not hold your hand, and if you try and let it you'll pull back a bloody stump.. As far as multiplayer.. well it has it, but honestly if you pay attention and think outside the box you don't need it.
For those of us who used to play their previous games you know that they were hard.. cruel.. and merciless. Unlike on that game at least you can brag about it with the hall of heros at the top of the Nexus - the hub of the game where you buy stuff, and go where you die.
And die you will... a lot.. but thats ok because the game is awesome. So suck it up and quit or keep going. Great cut scenes, and gameplay.
Rent it if you are tired of games handing you victory and actually earn it.
I loved this game, it was extremely challenging, which made for a very satisfying sense of accomplishment when I completed a difficult task or defeated a difficult enemy.
The character creation part at the beginning was a little frustrating, it seemed like no matter what I did, my character just didnt look right.
The visuals and graphics were excellent, and I think I will definately be buying this game; however I wont buy it without a strategy guide of some sort. The combat is extremely complicated, and I wasnt able to figure out how to go into other players worlds. Definately need some kind of instruction book so I feel like I'm really getting the full potential of this groundbreaking game.
