Dark Souls makes me sad and I don’t mean because of its grueling difficulty.. Don’t get me wrong, the game itself is an awesome experience but there are some serious, yet simple, roadblocks to overcome in order to enjoy it on the PC...

This Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition is not only the worst console port I've ever played (and I play most of them), it's also one of the worst designed. I mean literally, this game is one step above my character having "lives" and when I run out of those...

To say Dark Souls has been eagerly awaited would be an understatement. Touted as one of the best RPGs of all time, Dark Souls’ brand of merciless innovation and brutal dynamism has been paraded about, not least of all by console warriors, as the...

Despite this minor disappointment, Dark Souls remains one of the greatest games of recent years. There's so much to do and to discover in its beautiful and frightening world. You might encounter and join one of nine covenants, each with its own benefits and agendas.

Dark Souls is a game that pokes at our soft, flabby bellies and laughs at the way other titles have babied us with cheap gimmicks and easy rewards. It’s a game whose mechanics are the perfect reflection of its bleak, desolate world.

It shows what games are capable of by making its players show what they are capable of. And that is much, much more than you might think.

In just the game itself and bonus content, you're looking at 50 hours. Want to get every weapon, or become an online champion? Double that.

A deep, dark, challenging and impossibly rewarding fantasy RPG, sadly given a straight and perfunctory port from console.

Dark Souls does not give a crap about you. It doesn't care if you die—in fact, the new PC port is called the "Prepare to Die Edition," and in the game you play a walking corpse who has escaped the Undead Asylum. It does not care if you break...

Das Motto von Dark Souls Prepare to Die Edition scheint klar, Schwierigkeit hoch - Qualität runter. Grafisch ist das Spiel weit hinter dem heutigen Standard, die musikalische Kulisse wird anscheinend kurzerhand für nicht wichtig empfunden, die...

Die Internetadresse dieses Spiels heißt übersetzt "Bereite dich auf den Tod vor". Das trifft den Nagel auf den Kopf. Es gibt nämlich keinen aktuellen Titel, der mit einem höheren Schwierigkeitsgrad aufwartet. Einsteiger lernen...

Das härteste Action-Rollenspiel aller Zeiten hat es endlich auch auf den PC geschafft. Mit der sogenannten „Prepare to Die Edition“ hält „Dark Souls“ nun auch auf den Monitoren der Windows-Jünger Einzug und sorgt...

Jeg hadde ikke prøvd Dark Souls før det dukket opp på PC, men nå har det seilt opp som en av mine soleklare favoritter. Det er et spill som, for min del, kommer til å definere spillåret 2012. Det har enkelte kjedelige...

International Review By PCWorld France on 70

La version console de Dark Souls se réservait déjà à un public averti, et c'est encore plus vrai pour cette monture PC. Outre une difficulté hors du commun, le jeu s'y montre encore plus abrupt et austère, la faute...

Vorig jaar konden console gamers zich uitleven (of sterven) met Dark Souls. Nadat 92.000 mensen een petitie hebben getekend om Dark Souls naar de PC te krijgen is het eindelijk nu zover. From Software heeft de PC versie eindelijk uitgebracht met extra...

If you haven’t caught on by now, I’m a pretty big fan of 2011’s breakout hit Dark Souls. After naming it my game of the year for 2011 and creating 2 video walkthroughs from different character class perspectives which can by found on...
