Here’s the bottom line if you don’t have time to read the full review:


  • Challenging yet rewarding gameplay.
  • Fantastic atmosphere and level design.
  • Great enemies and bosses.


  • The confusing Tendency system.
  • The PS2-esque physics, seeming clunky at times.

Final Score: 9.5/10

All that Demon’s Souls is missing to make it a 10/10 is a tiny bit of polish. I think that’s what Dark Souls ends up being, and I wouldn’t be surprised if in the near future Dark Souls found its way to the list of Best Games Ever. Regardless, Demon’s Souls was a great 18 hour adventure for me, and I would recommend it to anyone, provided they can handle a bit of challenge.
