This game is like Skyrim but like twenty times more sensible and 5 times more edgy.
And like million times more hard, Jesus… what is with the difficulty levels with this thing?
The story of Dark Souls is greatly woven in the back of the world but never actually fully told to the player, the player has to collect all the anecdotes itself to make out the possible explanation, either via dialogues or messages.
So you are this cursed undead person, a result of a black magic the out broke turning some of the humans into an undead entity that lose their parts of humanity every time they suffer forced resurrection upon death.
And now you have to get to the bottom of this madness, terribly difficult madness.
The gameplay is very easy to describe here actually, if you have played Skyrim or any other third person RPG game then its just like that, you view your character from behind his back, there are specific buttons to do specific things like run, dash, attack, force attack etc.
But the main thing in the game is how you handle the tasks, the missions because the main object of the gameplay in this one is based on exploration and finding better ways than the last attempt and learning from your mistakes, I guess that justifies the ten thousand brutal massacre of my character per hour, we am learning something here, goddamit!
But jokes aside, the exploration is the key gameplay factor, with the difficulty in it acts as that push to make you try for another, much better ways.
Apart from that the general action RPG elements are available as usual, like a health bar, attack bar, and some other bars that only make sense while in the game, along with upgrading system and some nifty in game features based on some strict game rules.
The overall experience is great, except for the times when we really want to rip our own scalps off, but still even with all the difficulty and hard to defeat situations and monsters don’t frustrate you because it’s all part of the game and it makes you to ambush them enemies with better ideas and routes.
Developed by FromSoftware and published by FromSoftware and Namco Bandai Games for the PC, PS3 and X360, it was initially released in September 2011.
This is one of the most successful games ever made, for a reason, it demands all your gaming abilities to get out of these hard level difficulties that always sort of scared you.
And it does that demanding with cleverly put fun and interesting game mechanics and progression so that you never get tired or bored.
Do try this awesome challenge!
