Trivia

Originally planned to be titled 'Dark Race' but the name was decided against to avoid controversy. 'Dark Ring' was suggested for its relationship to the dark sign on players' character, but again discarded as the name was found to be profound English slang. 'Dark Souls' was the last resort by FROM SOFTWARE to name the title despite it appearing as the most obvious choice from gamers' perspectives given that the game is the spiritual successor of Demon's Souls.

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Kingseeker Frampt: The beings who possess these souls have outlived their their usefulness, or chosen the path of the wicked. Let there be no guilt - let there be no vacillation.

Excellent
5 May 2013 | by butr2010See all my reviews

This is a truly inspired game, it brings a breath of fresh air into a stale market and gives us something truly wonderful.

From start to finish it is simply riveting and it's challenging combat has you between fits of rage and despair to an ecstatic state of joy that no video game has done before (even it's predecessor Demon's Souls). The story, although perhaps not the most obvious nor linear is amazing if you can be bothered to look into it, and that is another point about the game, it requires your unwavering attention. If you play this game with the right mindset, it can be truly breathtaking.

And to people who say that it is 'overrated' or has 'artificial difficulty' all I can simply say is, you just went full retard.
