Hippo Penny - Here's my take on Demon's Souls!

So, you're probably wondering why I'm bothering with this review. After all, the critics have already spoken – and they've given it some seriously high scores! But hey, someone's gotta poke a little fun at themselves (and others) while sharing their thoughts on this notoriously tough game.

Let's get one thing straight: Demon's Souls is no joke. It's like trying to solve a puzzle blindfolded while being attacked by a swarm of angry bees. Okay, maybe that's a bit dramatic, but you get the idea! The enemies are relentless, and the world can be unforgiving – but man, when you finally beat that one pesky boss, it feels AMAZING!

Now, I know some critics out there have been raving about this game (I'll get to them in a minute). But let's not forget, we're talking about Demon's Souls here – the game that loves to torture players with its punishing difficulty. It's like the developers are saying, "Hey, you want a challenge? Well, I've got 20 more where that came from!"

Speaking of critics, D+PAD Magazine gave it a perfect score, calling it a "modern classic." Play Magazine was just as impressed, praising its "gorgeous" and "thoughtful" design. MEGamers said it's one of the best games of 2009 (which I'm guessing is code for "this game is ridiculously hard"). And Eurogamer? They called it "deep," "intriguingly disturbed," and just plain weird (in a good way, obvi).

Now, I know what you're thinking – what about Gamervision's scathing review? Yeah, they weren't too thrilled with the difficulty level, saying it goes "out of its way to be difficult." Ouch! But hey, at least they admitted that Demon's Souls is a good game in spots. NTSC-uk agreed, praising its challenging design and rewarding gameplay.

So, should you play Demon's Souls? Well, if you're the type who enjoys a good challenge (read: being frustrated for hours on end), then absolutely! Just don't say I didn't warn you. And hey, if all else fails, there's always that one super-hard boss to defeat – just kidding ( sort of).

In conclusion, Demon's Souls is a game that will keep you up at night, cursing the day you decided to play it. Or maybe it'll make you feel like you've accomplished something amazing when you finally beat that pesky boss. Either way, it's definitely an experience you won't forget – unless your gaming memory gets erased by all the frustration (just saying).
