Hello There , as a owner of PS3 i did finish many games that were hard to finish but this one i just can't stand it. I tought that having another hard game would be nice but i mean you spend 3/4 of the time dead and trying to figure out what went wrong. Yup , i pre-ordered this game and its going back where i took it. Could have been a far better game.
Or another way of looking at it, every game that isn't Demon's Souls is WAY too easy. Seriously, it's my main complaint with games nowadays, they're just too freaking easy. It's nice to have a game that doesn't hold your hand & pop messages on the screen every 5 seconds telling you what to do.
Now is Demon's Souls a hard game? Yeah, it sure is, but it's almost never cheap.If you bite it, it's because of your skills, (or lack thereof), not the game being unfair. But if you keep at it, you'll learn every single enemy placement & every nook & cranny of a level until eventually you dominate. This game may be tough, but the sense of reward associated with getting through abrutal area is pretty much unparalleled in any other game in recent years. Hardcore gamers only need apply for this gem.
Did you expect hand holding from a game that's renowned for being hard? This isn't a casual friendly game, only gamers need apply.
Besides, it's only hard until you learn how to play, my wife has gotten to the tower knight in the first major area and that's pretty impressive considering she's fairly new to action games, if she can do it you can too.
