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!

Absolute Epic
15 November 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Without a shadow of a doubt - this is one of the finest video games to ever be produced. Dark Souls is also, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the toughest video games to be made, perhaps excluding it's spiritual predecessor Demon Souls (which I highly recommend also).

When the game begins you will need to choose what type of character you would like to control for this epic adventure. The choice of classes (10 of them) such as a thief, warrior, hunter, cleric, pyromancer - you get the idea. To be perfectly honest it does not really matter which class you choose because you will evolve your character in any way you see fit as you progress through the game. I started as a pyromancer but as I approached the last boss, if anything I was more a knight than a pyromancer.

The main selling point of this game is probably the difficulty level as strange as that sounds. "You will die - a lot!!!" This game will frustrate the hell out of you and at times leave you wondering if it is even possible to beat certain bosses but YOU WILL keep coming back, why? Well because it is such a brilliant game. Some of the weapons you can create in this game are fantastic, but it's the way you get these weapons which makes them even more special because it is not as simple as finding them or just beating a boss. You must have certain things and do certain things to get these weapons.

I don't really want to talk about anything in the game but you need to get this, it will take priority over all your other games (yes I'm talking MW3, BF3, FIFA etc) and you will then probably go back and buy Demon Souls because these games are on a different level to those in the mainstream.

Good luck and prepare to die a lot!
