X360A Review: Dark Souls
Written Wednesday, October 05, 2011 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Dark Souls is hard as nails. That much is obvious, and if you're planning on playing (or have already played it), you'll be more than aware of that fact. Yet, you'll still want to play it and soak up the punishment. Repeatedly dying is part of the experience, and Dark Souls has no pretensions in being anything other than a demanding, tough and resolutely hardcore game.
But is it all worth it? Is repeated death really fun? Does Dark Souls reward players who persevere with its gruelling difficulty, or is it all just a thankless chore?
