I wasn't really expecting much from this game to be honest, I was always a Dark Souls fan so this type of game style will always interest me.

So far I've got around 5 1/2 hours in and it feels like I've barely touched the serface. What I am excited about however is the character development, I love the concept of targetting an enemies arm, head, torso, depending on the type of recipe you could potentially receive should you be lucky enough for it to drop.

The graphics are clean and crisp; it runs really well on PC with no issues I have found so far.

I installed it this evening and started playing almost immediately, my girlfriend was making dinner at the time. I looked up at the clock and it was 10pm... Dinner cold and Lisa slightly pissed off! I see that as the sign of a good game!

So far, worth the money and I am thoroughly enjoying it.

Will keep you posted on how the game develops, without spoilers of course.

Thanks for the first impressions, I'm curious about this game. As you say, the character progression is intriguing and the combat looks good.

Is it difficult? I'm fine with a challenge, but I found there is a line where frustrating overtakes challenge and I stop enjoying it. Ninja Gaiden taught me this.  ;D

Is it Dark Souls just in styling, or have you cursed at the screen yet?

I have cursed at the screen, but not in the way that Dark Souls did! If you've ever played the series you'll  know what I mean.

There is enough familiarity in the game to make it feel like a Dark Souls, however it maintains it's own identity, which I kind of like. At the minute, being the first few hours I can't really comment too much on how the game is developing, but based on what I've seen so far I really like it. Plus, it's something different from Dark Souls and yet, keeping the same mechanics, kind of!

I've caved in and bought this game. I need something to scratch that Souls itch! I'm a bit worried I won't be able to summon help but we will see.

That's quite funny.I agree with some of his points, but I think it's a solid game. It's ten times better then Lords of the Fallen imo. That said I've only just cleared second area, so I'll let you know
