7 Elements of Radically Simple OS Migration

One of the best RPGs of this generation

Demons Souls

Stick it to the man

In a game that so regularly frustrates, Black Phantoms are insult heaped upon injury. But, just like all the game's other enemies, they can be defeated. And they serve to remind you that perseverance isn't enough in Demon's Souls, only perfection will do.

It makes you feel you've been nothing but a spectator in other RPGs, as you cut an omnipotent swathe through their worlds, with death cheapened to mere inconvenience. Demon's Souls' greatest success is in breathing new life into death, to afford it real consequence once more, and to make the player fear it above all else.

And what more fitting reward for finally completing Demon's Souls than the chance to replay it through on a higher difficulty setting. But if that doesn't wet your sadomasochistic appetite, then how about the rumour that the game can be played through seven or eight times, each time with the difficulty raised by a further 20%?

Demons Souls

As dodgy as they come

Verdict

Demon's Souls is one of the best RPGs of this generation and one of the best reasons to own a PS3. It comes highly recommended not despite its difficulty, but because of it. No other current-gen game can rival the severity of its test or the feeling of accomplishment in its mastery.
