Would like to get this but the reviews I've read say its really difficult. I'm not great at gaming so what do you think, should I get it?

You should give it a go....I've heard its not mega hard like Ninja Gaiden etc (which made me nearly chuck my controller at the t.v)...perhaps use a guide for help ? Thats what I'll probably end up doing (gamefaqs.com). Also I've read it has co-op so if you've got a friend to play with that may help immensely, though he may need to also buy the game and play with you online.

You learn from your mistakes in this game.If you die it is always your fault.Its not as hard as people say once you get your head around upgrades and combat.If you do struggle pick the royal character as you start with a decent magic weapon so you can at least kill from distance.

You can indeed co op but not as simple as other games.It involves dropping a marker down and your mate finding it and warping into your world.

One cool feature is when you play connected to psn you see messages on the floor that can help you.There left from other players and in some places you can actually see how someone died.
Also be aware when playing online it is possible for someone to jump into your world and hunt you down!

but seriously its one of the best games ever and so rewarding,just make sure you bookmark the demon souls wiki site for all the help you need.

Never heard of it. Cold.

I would probably wait until it falls sub £10 - by that time you should be a bit better and will save a few quid!

If you have no patience, give this a very wide birth. However, if you are someone who can take there time, learn from there mistakes, and realise the only reason you died was not because the game cheated, but because you simply weren't good enough, then you will find Demons Souls not only a superb game, but quite frankly one of the greatest games ever made.

If that's true then you must not follow games that much. Or just not deviate from CoD :P

Good price for an amazing game.

@iand123 It's certainly the most difficult game of recent times if you just go running in. If you think about what you are doing and how to go about it then it's a very rewarding game.

Wow, thanks so much for the link - it has been of great help & interest.
I shall defiantly look out for the game in the future.
If i can help you with anything please don't hesitate to drop me a PM

Thanks

Thanks for the replies, guys. I think I will do as datca suggests and wait a while before buying; that way I hope my gaming skills will improve enough to enjoy playing the game. Old dog, new tricks, spring to mind though. Thanks again.

Very tempted at this price. I picked up the limited edition on release but sold it on cos it was worth quite a bit. I didn't really get that far into it, it is hard but as far as I could see you just have to be mega cautious and take it SLOWLY.

Happy to oblige

If this were snooker, the above posts would result in: Fail, and a sarcasm miss. A13, four.

Great game! its not as hard as people say but you do have to pay attention to detail level layout/attack patterns/past player experiences (if you play online) and take your time. I found it easier than ninja gaiden.

Not really a game for people who like to rush through and depend on checkpoints.

HURR DURRR I no see sarcasm. Must respond and continue debate forever HURR DURRRRR.
Must point out grammar fails "I shall ""defiantly"" look out for the game in the future."
Also inability to google demon souls themselves.

Must I go on ?

Its an amazing game, I've stuck about 200 hours into it I reckon when I sold my Asian import, now I can do it all again with the UK version!

Great game and they say they're gonna keep the online servers open until at least the end of the year.

Do people vote if they haven't heard of any item? How strange.

A real tough game, I've given up on it, it really is unforgiving if you make a mistake around one of the tougher knights. Learn from your mistakes, but learn quickly!

£13.37. It must be good.

Game give £15 trade-in for this, I traded mine. Too unforgivingly difficult to be fun for a casual gamer like myself. Give me Street Fighter any day...

nice one , think will wait till its a tenner though, heat left.

thanks OP, just ordered

Simple - Don't fight the Red Eye'd Knights on the first level unless you are returning with some good gear. Its do-able straight away, but takes practice and *ahem* skill!

Leet game at a 1337 price.

Game is a masterpiece.

Don't wait too long, According to a pop-up message when you first play the game, the European servers will be shutting down any time after and around June 2011, so not too long left. EU servers have had only a year on line until closure whereas the US have been given a guaranteed 2 until October 2011, The Asian servers are staying on line from what i can tell. Dark Souls (Demon Souls 2) Will be coming out near November/December so its not too long.

Edit. I rented this game a few weeks ago and have not stopped playing, at around 80 hours, if your slow, its more then worth it. I may have to pick this up.
