Lords of the Fallen looks/plays just like Dark Souls. The only difference that I could see is that you’re forced to play as this prisoner and that’s pretty much all I know at this point. I love the fact that Dark Souls has inspired developers to make games, but this is too much like Dark Souls to be called original. Everything from the world design to the combat is exactly like Dark Souls. Lords of the Fallen will be a single player only game. You can choose from a Warrior, Rogue, or Cleric.
The game is beautiful and I’m definitely curious about the game, but it just bothers me that it’s so much like the Soul Series. Most games that are inspired by other games make them different enough to stand out on their own. Castlvania Lords of Shadow and God of War have similar gameplay, but are different enough to stand out on their own. The only thing that I saw here was honestly a complete rip of the game minus the online multiplayer that Dark Souls has.
After watching the trailer I think Dark Souls has the better gameplay, but I would be lying if I said I didn’t want to try this game. Hopefully we’ll be introduced to some new mechanics before the game is released. Another thing I noticed is that the game doesn’t look very hard. The boss fight that I saw was impressive, but he looked incredibly easy to beat, especially if you’re a Dark Souls veteran. I’m pretty sure they’re going to change the button layout and not have it play exactly like Dark Souls, but you’ll be lying to yourself if you said you didn’t think of Dark Souls when you saw this game.
Hopefully Lords of the Fallen will be original enough to not be called a rip of Dark Souls, but right now that’s exactly what it is. It’s Dark Souls with a laid out story for you to experience.
