I honestly cannot understand how this game has gotten such great reviews, it's just not that good at all. And before everyone get in an uproar about people giving bad reviews to this not being RPG fans, I love RPGs and that's why I hate this game. It's not an RPG, it's kind of a psuedo-adventure game with the ability to level up your character. However, it's missing, in my opinion, the fundamental thing that seperates true RPGs from every other game: a story that sucks you in. I don't really see where everyone is complaining about the difficulty, I honestly didn't really find the game that difficult, but at no point are you actually interested in your character or the game. Which is disturbing considering how well it starts, Unfortunately choosing your character is the most interesting part of the entire game. After that it's just hours upon hours of mind-numbing exploration, but no real plot, no real story, and no real motivation. Any other RPG I've ever played if someone walked in on me and seeing me searching for hours for something and asked "what are you doing?" I could definitively say "i'm looking for the key to the door that has the sword that I need," or some variation of that. If the same question was asked of Dark Souls my answer would simply be "I don't know." While I disagree with most of the bad reviews of this game, I simply cannot give it a good review, it's just a waste of time and money. If you want a real RPG go play something in the final fantasy series. If you want to play an adventure RPG go play Diablo or Diablo II, but skip Dark Souls.
