About

Demon’s Souls is an action RPG, the first installment in the Souls series, known mostly because of the Dark Souls trilogy. Demon’s Souls is also set in a grey-colored dark medieval-themed world that is attacked by the demon fog. You take on the role of a knight that entered the fog trying to save the kingdom from demons. He was eventually killed and reborn, and now needs to travel the entire kingdom to gain power and set the world free. Your character is fully customizable and can be upgraded with souls you get through battles. Demon’s Souls combat system is quite complicated as you can’t gain experience killing ordinary enemies to defeat the boss later. Here you need to work out unique tactics for every monster type. As a result, the gameplay is quite challenging with frequent deaths. However, there’s a way to simplify the game a little. Some of your actions, for example, killing or helping NPCs, affect the gameplay. This parameter is called tendency; when it’s white, the enemies are easier and the rewards are fewer. When it’s black, it produces the opposite effect.

King's Field spiritual successor and the ever legendary Dark Souls precedent.

Somehow noticeable where it lacks polishing, budget and cuestionable development decisions, it still deserves recognition for the so loved system FromSoftware follows now.

The lore and plot are very up to expectations on an even emotional level that won't let down, and the combat is as coarse as it is enjoyable. I can't seem to be able to express the atmosphere it transmits, but this experience is something nobody should miss.
