  • Only buy if you want a challenge
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Ps4Gamer101 - June 29, 2016

    The Souls series has always been a challenging franchise. In this iteration, FromSoftware, went back to its roots, which was Demon Souls, not Dark Souls. However, since this game is not an exclusive to one platform, the game suffers in performance. Obviously, I purchased the Ps4 version, and there was some low-frame rate issues during gameplay. Furthermore, the Xbox One versions suffers the same issue but even worse. It is not a deal-breaker but it does affect the perception of the game and MAY cause unforeseen deaths to the character. Overall, this is game will entertain, albeit more frustration than not, and it is worth a buy.

  • Excellent conclusion to the series
    Verified BuyerReviewed by murtrapod - June 22, 2017

    Dark Souls 3 is a great end to a great series. The combat is deep and among the best I've ever played. The story is complex and revealed in subtle ways. You might not know exactly what is going on or why you are doing things in-game, but there's a lot of fun to be had searching online for other players' interpretations of the story and coming up with your own. Invasions and summons with other human players add even more excitement and variety. This series has a reputation for being obtuse and difficult, but I feel that is a bit overblown. This game is for anyone who likes action games but wants a different experience.

  • Challenging and Rewarding.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by LeonKennedyRPD - December 26, 2016

    Dark Souls III seems like the perfect souls game. It's filled with methodical combat, beautiful scenery, memorable bosses/characters, a glorious soundtrack, challenging boss fights, all with a dash of nostalgia sprinkled about. From a technical standpoint, you could play this game without having played any prior entries, but it may not be ideal. I loved the dichotomy of fire(Unkindled) and dark(Undead), between Dark Souls III and the original. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who wants a game that poses a challenge and is rewarding, once you retrain your play style from all out to methodical.

  • Prepare to Die... A lot
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Rich - April 21, 2017

    I spent 3 hours playing this game just to beat the 1st boss. I am completely new to the Souls series, so this game is a whole new experience for me. It is as difficult and unforgiving as everyone that plays the game says, but it has this distinct way of presenting gameplay to you that keeps you hooked. Attacking and blocking is completely reflex-based and completely refined. This is a patience game that continually tests your patience so that you attack or defend at the wrong moment, and will then punish you for it. The addiction is the sense that this game has so much to discover, looting enemies for unique gear, and knowing that success or failure is completely dependent on my decisions.

  • Solid action experience
    Reviewed by Samuel - December 2, 2016

    Dark Souls 3 sees the conclusion of the of dark-fantasy series that originally began as Demon's Souls on the PS3. Taking a cue from its predecessors (as well as the spinoff/side-game Bloodborne), DS3 is the ultimate culmination of challenge and reward. There is no perma-death, but if you hope to beat the game, patience and skill are key. The controls have not changed beyond some new additions like weapon skills, however the camera can still be quite tricky in small areas as it was in previous Souls games. Furthermore, the beginning level sees a serious step up in difficulty that may catch newcomers and less hardcore players off guard, so be weary when choosing your character's initial class and stats.
