It's not nearly as Souls-like as I was hoping. It's not even particularly MonHun like, not really. I'm not sure what I think of it, after the demo. I don't really think it gives off a clear impression of what the final game is like beyond showing off the types of attacks you have access to. I encountered quite a few graphical errors and some minor FPS drops, which doesn't bode well for its performance. You can't even play as a mage.
At the very least, I hope I don't have to rely on multiple followers constantly.
I spent far too much time with the Character creator for my own good, though. They have a nice selection of hairstyles and overall body choices. If I had one complaint, I would have liked to have clearer voice samples.
Overall, despite my rant, I think I'll enjoy it. I just don't think it's 10/10, or even 9/10 material simply from the technical issues.
