Demon's Souls is a pitch-perfect example of how great risk can make the rewards taste all the sweeter. Getting killed in a single hit from a multi-storey, frog-like monster with a giant meat cleaver and a thirty-foot tongue is always going to be frustrating, but persevere and a couple of weeks later you’ll be wondering how he ever bothered you. Demon’s Souls pits you against your own incompetence and inexperience, a challenge which often feels insurmountable, but that delivers some incredibly powerful thrills for players brave enough to commit.

Anyone weaned on Zelda and tempered by Diablo will have a strong attraction to the wonders of Demon's Souls. Some will be spurned by the unforgiving opening segment, while others might be jilted by the idiosyncratic and claustrophobic online components. But those that bargain with the darkness will find a nightmare world they'll not want to wake up from. This gumbo of game miscellany hits the innovative spot in a world of sequels. Each level gained is a victory, every minute spent alive a triumph. If the above intrigues you, then your time in Demon's Souls will be quite well spent.

There's a lot to discover, and the game wants you to figure it all out on your own. But while Demon's Souls doesn't serve the answers to you on a gilded platter, it gives you a number of refined and inspired tools to help you succeed, and its astounding, oppressive world will cast its spell on you. If you crave true innovation, a fair but relentless challenge, and gripping exploration in which every step has consequences, then you crave Demon's Souls.
