Having watched the vid in moonwalkers post and put 10 hours in myself I am in agreement with him.
I use lock on, fire-bombs, throwing knives, whatever I can buy.
But its repetitive to the point of annoying imo.
You beat a certain part then hit a boss, boss kills you you are back to bonfire to do same thing again and again and again.
I am only giving my opinion on what I feel about the game so far and it is not criticism but that guy said a lot of what I have experienced thus far.
I mean in all fairness you are warned it is very hard so fair enough but I rented it to see how I would get on and I will be returning it tomorrow and moving on.
I might try starting again later with a different class to see does it make a difference but at the most I reckon I could wait 12 months to get this cheap and try it again.
Its good to see games like this on the market though as lots of today's games lead you by the hand.
Dark souls definitely doesn't.
I again salute the ones on here that are getting through it and I imagine if I had played demons prior to this I would probably be doing a lot better.
