Give this game a few days. At first you will hate it because you aren't used to something this hard. That is the point. After you play through the same scene a few times, you will have a hard time realizing why it was so difficult in the first place.

The story line will keep you thinking when you are at school/work. You'll find yourself pausing gameplay to look around at the awesome graphic detail of the levels and bosses. There are more weapons/armor than you can keep count of in one game. You'll have to rethink your inventory for every mission.

Every decision counts. You cannot save your game manually. There is an autosave function that you have to be aware of. If you attempt something risky, it could effect the rest of your game. The game involves a lot of thinking.

If you give this game a chance, you will not regret it. I just beat it and don't want to send it back! Luckily there is a new game+ and new game ++!

I Originally got this game because a friend recommended it to me, and I have to say, i hated it when I first played. It took me 4 hours to GET to the first boss, and almost 3 days to kill it (I wasn't paying attention to my grass[healing items])

However after i returned the game to gamefly, i couldn't get it out of my head. i found myself looking online to build classes out before I knew it. I planned my frist class from level 1 all the way to 120. Including equipment, and what sats to put where, and when. Long story short, I went to my local Bull Moose, and promptly purchased the game. Within 5 minutes I was hooked. As soon as you accept the fact that your going to die, the game becomes much more fun than tedious.

The goal isn't so much to get to the end of the level without dying, It's much more in the nature of gathering information on enemies, layout, and general strategy until you make your big run. The game is not oriented toward a story, and if story is what you are looking for in a game, i recommend something else. this game revels in its combat system and the feeling of satisfaction of victory. and those are the things that make the game worth it.

Also I HIGHLY recommend playing demon's souls befoe its newly released sequel. if you don't vibe on the game once you accept the concept, you never will.

When I first got this game way back in October I gave it about a week before I threw it on the shelf never to play it again, until about May. I can safely say my initial reactions to this game were way way wrong. I thought it was too hard, too confusing... I was an idiot. This game rocks and is so under rated its funny. The game is so deep and offers hours of entertainment. If you are having trouble go to some online sites or wikis and they can easily help you out if you "think" this game is to confusing or hard to the point it’s not fun.

Once you beat the first level, go to the top and talk to the statue “monumental” to begin leveling up with the witch that says “the monumental waits ye above.” I didn't know that and just got my ars kicked. Give this game a try and don’t be afraid to read for some help online.
