Best Buy Customer Reviews

Great Game Posted by: from: Texas on I just want to start this review off by saying this game is not anything like Elder scrolls. Its more like the good old tough games. I mean this game is hard and if you are a causal player than this is not for you. This game is like a rpg version of counter strike. You either quit or get better. The game play mechanics is great, you don't just smash buttons like in God of War. Well I would compare it street fighter in that sense. You can beat the game smashing buttons but if you put the time in you can really perfect your sword play. The story is great but the challenge is what keeps me coming back. Most older games were hard because they weren't programmed well, this game is hard because they wanted it that hard. If you are on the fence about getting this game or not. Rent it first because it is tough and I can not say that enough. But I love to invade other peoples game and making it that much harder for the other player.

Beginners & The Unskilled Need Not Apply Posted by: from: Boise, ID on While not as good as it's predecessor Demon's Souls, this is still a fantastic game. It's not the hardest game ever made, but is a challenge none-the-less. I would say it is harder than Demon's Souls, which I found to be slightly challenging especially compared to nearly all other games in the current generation. Dark Souls does not hold your hand. There are no excessive cut scenes or lengthy tutorials. You have to work for everything, even the story which is told in small pieces via NPC dialog and item descriptions. The "Souls" games are akin to a bygone era where making a mistake comes with a price. If you grew up playing games in the 8-bit generation, even the 16-bit and much of the 32-bit generation, you will more than likely love this game. However, if most of your experience has been in the PS3/360 era, you might very well hate this game as developers have been holding your hand and creating a generation of soft, unskilled gamers. *I wish there was a section to review my purchase experience. I pre-ordered this game, the Limited/Collectors Edition and did not receive what I ordered. Was told to call back in a week as they were trying to make it right. I called 5+ times over the course of 2 weeks and just got the run around. I will never buy a game from Best Buy again.

One of the few games worth $60 Posted by: from: Ga on Wow, what can i say? amazing doesn't seem to describe this game enough. It's hard as heck,but you'll love it soooo much because of the joy you get when you take down bosses and other insanely difficult monsters. I have never really been a hardcore rpg gamer but wow, this game makes me want to try oblivion and other similar games. The fighting mechanics and well thought out and work really well.Love how you have to improve your weapons/armor/character. Also, it takes a good bit of time to beat so it's worth the $$$.

Game for real gamers. Posted by: from: FL on If you are up for dressing up your guy to look pretty and easy gameplay then dont touch this game and buy yourself WoW. But if you are up for the challenge and addictive gameplay you must have it! Game may seem way to hard and frustrating at beginning but once get good at it you will love it! P.S. You may need to buy another controller with this game, there is good chance you will break first one. Enjoy!

Challenging, but extremely rewarding Posted by: from: Seattle, WA on This game quickly worked its way up to being one of my favorites in years. It's challenging, but never unfair. It forces you to master all its systems and once you do the difficulty becomes much more manageable. The story and atmosphere are great. The level design is maybe the best I've ever seen. Without spoiling anything, almost every part of the world is interconnected and once that starts to become apparent, then you can see just how genius it is. The RPG elements are great and really allow for a lot of variety. The only complaint is that you can't respect stats so it is possible to make some big mistakes if you are not careful. I'd recommend trying out the various class abilities before spending many points on any one stat. The online mechanics are very unique and well implemented. Lastly, the game doesn't give you any clues to its secrets and some things can be very easily missed. I wouldn't recommend looking online if you don't have to, but talk to ALL npcs and explore every nook and cranny. Buy it!

Challenging but rewarding Posted by: from: on This Action/RPG game is for seasoned gamers. It will not "let you by" if you get stuck but it will all make sense when you do figure it out. The strategy guide can really help for gamers without patience. Not for casual games. :)

Punishing yet engaging Posted by: from: on What you heard about Dark Souls is what you get. My advice is to get some friends to help out in the early game, and look up some tips.

Great Game. Posted by: from: Des Moines, IA on I bought Dark Souls for the challenge and because it looked very fun to just run around exploring new areas without any idea of where to go, and I was not disappointed. This game delivered on everything I was expecting. It's definitely worth the price and the replayability is very high.
