Hey, I apologize in advance for the super-long review but this is an immense game so maybe it deserves a long review. I'll see if I can abbreviate it a little but I'm afraid it will stay 'long' no matter what I do.
Hmmm... I worked so hard to bring my beloved Uchigatana to a +6 but now Ben, Bladwin's brother - they are both blacksmiths - suggests that I give it to him and he's going to make a Crescent Uchigatana +1 out of it. A PLUS ONE out of my +6? Yes, my kids advise, go for it. While it's true that the Plus One Crescent does only 75 damage vs. my +6's 153, my current level of magic 35 should add at least 92 points of magic attack to the physical damage and, with the help of a few dozen Darkmoon stones (lots of Grim Reapers had to die for me to harvest them) and less than 10,000 souls (a bargain) I can immediately upgrade it to Crescent +3 and with THAT weapon, my friends, it only takes one quick slash to dispose of a silver skeleton and I can do away more than half a dozen low-level zombies with one swing. And, did I mention that it will slowly restore my MP (magic points) while I'm wearing it so I don't really need to keep the Fragrant Ring on and I could use the Sharp Magic ring instead to further boosts my magic strengths including Uchigatana's power but, true, it WILL lower my magic defenses. Or use the Thieves' Ring while in Queen's Tower prison so that the lovely bell-ringing octopus-head prison guards (good looking girls with a passion for electrocuting and stabbing while hugging you tight) won't notice me. And the Thieves' Ring seems to do well with those giant flying stingrays.Read more ›
The game is sort of like a massively upgraded Kings field if you ever played those games with a bit more RPG elements (you can control what kind of combat your character uses, which spells etc much more) and way better combat. The game is quite long and has good replay potential as you try out different "class" combinations. It also allows you to play online with others very easily in both a PVP and co-operative environment. The boss fights are pretty awesome and I would consider this game an absolute steal at $30 or less. I highly recommend it.
- Well Designed Levels - Each level is paced perfectly, has great enemy placement, and is packed with atmosphere.
- The Overworld Hub - Adding more life to the game, you'll have a hub where you can interact with NPC's and such.
- The Online System - Demon's Souls has an innovative online system that allows you to leave messages in the environment and much more.
- The Gameplay - The gameplay in Demon's Souls -- especially the moment-to-moment combat -- has real weight to it. It feels satifying. Each blow and dodge/roll truly matters.
- The Difficulty - Demon's Souls isn't an easy game, but it rewards patience, which rewards skill in return. If you die, it's your mistake. You have to master each level, but it's 100% possible.
- Some Odd Ragdoll Effects - Whenever you kill an enemy, if you walk over the enemy, its body will move all around as if there was no weight to it.
- Not The Most Polished - I ran across some graphical oddities and some small glitches.
Other than a few flaws, Demon's Souls comes highly recommend. And at its current price, this game is a no-brainer. Buy it.

Don't be scared by its reputation for difficulty. It's a lot easier than some of the old NES games from the 80s. Modern gamers are just spoiled by easy games. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Zac
