About Demon's Souls

Boasting a “dark fantasy” theme, Demon’s Souls allows players to forge their own character by tweaking gender, age and various assorted attributes, before embarking on a quest to the destroyed Kingdom of Voletaria. Here you’ll duke it out against legions of gigantic creatures using a variety of weaponry, each one offering a different style of combat depending if they’re wielding by one or both hands.

Demon's Souls is everything we've been looking for on the PS3 -- a stellar action RPG boasting a killer online component. The game's uncompromising difficulty may not be everyone's cup of tea, however.

We like

  • The intriguing and original online component
  • What feels like the PS3's first major RPG
  • The eerie atmosphere and physical gameplay mechanics

We dislike

  • The at times frustrating difficulty and arduous trial and error
