Did You Know?


Several characters from Demon's Souls return again in Dark Souls, albeit, slightly altered which could simply be a nod to Demon's Souls or suggests that the worlds of Demon's Souls and Dark Souls are intertwined in time and reality, which is the main plot of Dark Souls. See more »


The three souls on the corpses below Patches in the Tomb Of Giants still appear in the cutscene where the player is kicked off by Patches even if they were previously picked up. See more »


Solaire of Astora: Oh, hello there. I will stay behind, to gaze at the sun. The sun is a wondrous body. Like a magnificent father! If only I could be so grossly incandescent!

Amazing Game. Most of these reviews have people who just don't know what they're talking about...
17 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Okay, so, I've been playing this game for months. I'm still not bored of it. I came here just to see what the score was on this brilliant game and also look at a couple of reviews (I thought they would all be a 10 out of 10) but I was disappointed by the stupidity of people writing reviews.

First of all, I saw a review by someone that said: "I was supposed to go to random places and kill as many demons as I can find, there is no specific quest or storyline to follow. I killed a few of the bosses and gained nothing, just another dead end."

There are so many things wrong with this paragraph. For starters: you aren't supposed to go to random places, believe it or not. You have to find out where you are supposed to be going by reading the description of items you pick up (keys, weapons, armor etc.) That will tell you a bit about the story and characters, and the keys will usually tell you which door they open.

Secondly, there is a storyline. What did you think the large cut-scene was at the start of the game? Something totally irrelevant? You need to pay attention and use your wits to find out more and more of the story as you progress. And if you are still really struggling, it isn't illegal to look it up online.

Third and finally, you don't gain nothing from killing bosses and enemies. You earn keys, unlock new areas to the game, find weapons and more equipment that will help you put together pieces of the story and find your way around.

So, basically, to sum this up, don't bother reading the reviews on this page. I recommend maybe watching a little bit of game-play on YouTube or other video sites (but not so much that it will spoil your experience) and deciding whether or not to buy it from there.

Amazing game. 99/100!
