This game is a badly ported console thing that is unplayable on a PC. Jesus Christ what is wrong with the developers? Don't they realize that is someone sees "for PC" they might actually buy it for a PC platform?
I have a rule concerning games: I load them and play them, I do not play software engineer. I do not spend hours on the net trying to make the damn things work. That is their job. My job is to provide a non-exotic, properly configured platform. Thats it.
This one loads then informs you that you can't save because you are not logged in (!?) Huh? You have to "log in" to Windows live or something? Is that it? Come on, this is 2015, next they are going to have me call a game counselor. I don't get it. This went out under Microsoft's name. You would think that there would be a bit of QC to be sure the stupid thing didn't look to slapped together. As it is you are instructed to press A to Start!!!
To those of you reading this, they took a console game and did the absolute bare minimum to make it run on a PC. Now, imagine the console commands. How does that translate to a keyboard? Who knows. I sure don't want to do their work for them.
Note added 1/3/15: I purchased this from Gameseek and they offered a refund promptly. Problem is that they are in the UK. The cost (that I had to pay) was $12 for shipping back this crummy game. The point here is that US purchasers should be very careful when making a purchase that might entail a return. Shipping is a killer and, in this case at least, one does not know until it is too late. Sorta crappy that this happened.
This game is an amazing experience that no gamer should miss. It has made me feel like no other game. Yes, it's difficult, but it also rewarding, and more forgiving than you may think. Plus, the difficulty doesn't feel harsh, because the game is so much fun and so mesmerizing.
Don't be afraid to use the internet if you stumble. This is a tough game and I guarantee you the number of players' who did it all on their own is a fraction of those who haven't. Even with help finishing this game commands respect. A greater sin would be not finishing the game at all.
The European version is great: It comes with a poster of Artorias, postcards and an awesome artbook that details almost every suit and enemy in the game. Oh, and the epic soundtrack!
I only have one complaint about the game. I was a bit disappointed to find out that the game comes with an incomplete soundtrack. The Prepare to Die edition has new content, monsters, items, and bosses. None of the new music is on the soundtrack included with the game. It only includes the soundtrack for the original release.
The gameplay is great ,make sure you have a xbox controller for it though, I did all of the game using my keyboard(and beat the game I might add) Its a great game and not as hard as some say it is. :)
The camera is controlled by mouse steering, and is super sensitive on the lowest settings. The mouse also controls your attacks and target locking. The attacks project you in the direction you are facing which is often difficult to discern with the hyper sensitive camera spin. Movement and actual character facing are controlled by key movements (WASD). The camera never auto corrects to the character facing so in the midst of combat you are struggling to get your facing while aligning the camera angle and hopefully your attack wont project you past your target into a wall. Walking with this configuration is disorienting enough, fighting is ludicrous.
The key mapping (yes I realize that you can and should remap keys to suit yourself) is terrible. The in game instructions on how to perform tasks are given for an Xbox controller, not a keyboard. There were no instructions in the package that helped decipher this Xbox controller to keyboard riddle. I had to track it down online, and even these were incomplete and sometimes inaccurate.
I bought this because it was a highly rated and challenging game. I didn't expect being able to perform the simplest and most basic actions such as walking or saving a game to be those challenges.
