There are checkpoints, and you can make many minor errors without dying. But I guess your definition of minor error is running off a cliff or getting repeatedly killed by the same enemy. If you learn from your mistakes, this game is easy because everything is the same. If you don't learn and like to keep doing the same thing over and over until you finally succeed (like most casual gamers), then yeah, this game isn't for you.

Oh yeah, and a metacritic score of 89, I guess only a couple "journalists" liked it.


lol, exactly.

It won fucking game of the year from gamespot.

The game isn't hard. If it was, it wouldn't be so popular on CAG.

Everyone beats it, because it only requires that you think for 2 seconds on why you died. "Oh I'll roll out of the way next time" = Demon's Souls in a nutshell. And that's why it's good.

I'm talkin about when you say shit like it has clunky controls or no checkpoints or other made up shit just to try and come up with a reason for not liking the game besides that you suck at it. Just admit you don't like the game because you are terrible at it. Watch, I'll show you an example: I don't like golf because I suck at it.

I don't care if you don't like the game, just have a valid reason for not liking it (ie: I only like to play easy mode because I'm scared of having any challenge in my life).

I would agree that the controls are clunky. Only one or two of my deaths was from an enemy attack. The rest were from falling while platforming.

Unlike a lot of games, Demon's Souls is rather deficient in the tutorial department. You go through a short primer and then the game boots you out into the game world and you are responsible for figuring things out, such as finding the area of the Nexus with all the tips on the ground for advanced moves. Some folks thrive when kicked into the river and told "swim," others need more guidance.

The first couple of hours are the most polarizing as you are at your weakest, if you can get through that, then you can begin to level and seek out better gear which will make the game much easier. If you can't get through the first part of the game, re-roll with a royal class character, that's Demon's Souls on easy mode.

Is there a way to tell if the game came with the OST without opening it?

IIRC, the OST came with the artbook that was a launch copy bonus.

I'm 99% sure that the soundtrack is completely separate from the game.

1 month left to play...I have to remember to play it before they pull the servers. I would like to see the blue stone (and the others) in action.
