Long description

From Software's follow-up to 2009's Demon's Souls features an all-new storyline and setting. The action role-playing game will still retain its predecessor's challenging gameplay, which relies heavily on trial-and-error exploration across regions filled with traps, dungeons, monsters, and other dangers that can kill the unprepared adventurer in an instant. New features include a more seamlessly connected world with different terrain elevations, more varied weapons and magic items, and more freedom to develop and shape your character the way you want instead of being limited by a specific class or job. Also new is the ability to light a "beacon fire," which serves as a recovery point when characters die as well as a meeting point for sharing experience. Both cooperative and competitive multiplayer game types are supported, with the option for online users to leave behind messages and warnings to help other players.

Very fast delivery and brand new for a ridiculous price !! Thank you

rpg of the decade

If you are a fan of rpg's then this is the one for you. It is literally one of the most edge of the seat games I have played. It is teeth-grittingly hard but that's what makes it fun!

Great value

Great game, wasn't expecting it to be the collector's edition as well! Great value for money!

Been looking for this everywhere!

I'm all about instant gratification. Kalahari's next day service is EPIC! 10/10.

Prepare to be amazed!

Sound 5/5 Coming from the Tales Of series and other jrpgs, Motoi Sakuraba's soundtrack for the game is unlike anything I’ve heard from him. The game is filled with haunting and atmospheric sounds ranging from slight ambient melodies to full on epic orchestral music. It’s wonderful in every sense, music and sounds work in perfect harmony with each other. Graphics 4/5 Do not go into this game expecting bright and flashy graphics. The art style is extremely dark and grim. And it translates into every texture, every pixel, the graphics in this game makes you feel as though you’re in a dark and desolate world where every step could be your last though. The only problem that arises is the frame rate can get extremely choppy at times, but I was able to overlook that as it didn’t take too much out of the experience. Story 3/5 There’s not much to go on with the story but that is to be expected from this type of game though the world is filled with interesting lore, you have to actively go and discover them. So don’t expect a strong cast of characters or anything like that. The story is told mostly through the world. Gameplay 5/5 The controls are tight and responsive and every action you do requires strategy and thought. Take note this is not a straight forward hack n slash, timing is of utmost importance. You have to study enemy movements and find the right time to attack, for instance. I came across a knight that raises his sword and waits for you to attack, now if you were not paying attention and carelessly attacking, he would counter your attack and one-hit kill you. The combat is truly deep and exciting. 17/20
