i've played DS2 it was hard but not as hard as this game.

it's really really hard, i coudn't even get souls. i get and then i lost all the souls everytime, and coudn't level up.

then i was trying to level up with some noob methods. yeah that was good.

there is no teleport until anor londo, there is shortcuts from on location to another but cmon bonfire must can teleport.

monsters respawning all the time no matter how many times u killed them, they,re keep respawning.

but it's dark souls, and i think how many times u die, u're getting stronger in real life. i love dark souls. i'm stronger than everybody who didn't play dark souls yet.

I still remember how hard and challenging this game was... The graphics are so good back in the days, the gameplay also has its unique vibe.. dark souls vibe, it become the identity of DS itself.

My very first souls game, it was really the first of its kind.

The souls journey for me is like an episode of my life and I can't explain it in a few lines. I was lucky enough to have found this genre.

If you not yet tried it, it's no doubt you will in love with it.

Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition is one of the worst PC ports I’ve played. It’s also one of the best games ever made, so don’t let a few trivial issues push you away. If you play with a 360 controller and install the resolution fix, it’s every bit the game that you might have imagined when you first heard the game was coming to PC.

An action game that dares to teach us patience, and caution. A video game with respect for the player, that dares us to be an actual hero. Not once when you die does Dark Souls help you back up, not once does it let up in its astonishing quality or turn to padding, and not once do the ideas stop coming. Buy it.

Dark Souls is a unique game well worth experiencing, with deep systems to master and expansive lands to map. An unwritten contract requires that the player intimately embrace the game’s intricacies in order to persevere and ultimately conquer the difficult challenges. There are one or two things to be wary of here, but if you’re willing to sign, you’ll have a chance to earn a feeling of true accomplishment.
