Lords of the Fallen - Preview @ TheGameHeadz

TheGameHeadz has a short prevew of Lords of the Fallen. It's the same info given as the other previews so I leave to you to read or not read.

The similarities between Lords Of The Fallen and Dark Souls are screaming out for everyone to see, but what needs to be focussed on is the differences. Having a character that's a completely blank slate is one of the things I've always wanted to try out in a game. Often you'll start a game by choosing a set of certain perks that define your game play for the duration of the title, but with Lords Of The Fallen you miss out that step. Being able to forge a character solely from your actions is quite revolutionary, as even games such as Skyrim start you off with Race Perks that define how you play for the rest of the four hundred hours.

It's going to be difficult for Lords Of The Fallen to make a noise in the next generation of consoles, as Dark Souls 2 is already absorbing everyone's attention. Hopefully the differences in mechanics and the subtlety of the openness of this game will draw players in, showing them that they've actually found a real monster of a title where the least expected it. Initially Demon's Souls, the spiritual precursor to Dark Souls, wasn't a huge hit, it took a long time for people to appreciate what the game was about, making you think tactically and carefully. The combination of this aspect and the added freedom in Lords Of the Fallen should make it a fantastic game to look out for.
