I just bought this game for $20 at Walmart a couple of days ago! (but i'm gonna finish Uncharted 1 & 2 before I play it)

But watching my cousin play and die 10 times during the first mission where you are a half life (or whatever they are called) and have to restart the whole thing again scared me! The game looks effing hard!

I know when I play it I will start on the lowest possible difficulty available

Lol, but there's no difficulty levels in this game! You just need to learn the enemy patterns, don't button mash, and keep your shield up at all times ;)

WHAT?!?!? My cousin said there were different difficulities!!

Well...he isn't totally wrong. When you finish the game, you start over and the game gets 40% harder (enemy life and damage). After that , I believe it gets 8% harder on each iteration. So that's probably the different difficulty settings ;)

Damn I probably won't ever be able to beat the game then :/

Pretty much what I thought. Cliched as it sound, you'll learn the patterns and you'll be able to master it. Seriously.

Ha we'll see....after a certain amount of tries I will probably get frustrated though and never want to play again (happened with TTFAF on expert....I always wanted to beat that song but I never could no matter what I did.

TIP: Starting off as Royalty is a very easy option. The first few levels will be a breeze. 

Thanks for the tip! i'll use that guy for my first time of playing!

Some more things that will help you out:

1. NEVER use any of the Boss Souls. They are to be traded for spells and miracles or for upgrading weopons.

2. You'll want the Kris blade if your going to be a mage.

3. The Thief's Ring is your best friend if you're a mage. EDIT: Well, the Fragrant ring too, of course

Do you have to buy that stuff or is it dropped by enemies?

You start off with the Fragrant ring if you are a Royal. It really helps.

 

Thief's Ring is in 1-1 check out http://demonssouls.wikidot.com/rings

Kris blade is in 2-1 http://demonssouls.wikidot.com/kris-blade

 

I quite liked reading the details on all the weopons and items online. It was a lot of fun and sometimes it's the only way to know what's going on.  BUT, I must stress that walkthroughs are for pussies Well, except of course if you've died 20 times agains a boss and want some tips

I'm one of those who didn't think the game so hard... you just need to make no mistakes.

I kinda almost broke my controller because of this damn game...some permanent damage was done to the plastic casing...losing your souls is a real bitch. Also....dude I BARELY made it out alive of medium on TTFAF...I could never even get the hang of 5 buttons! I suck.

It doesn't help that the game hardly explains its many need to know concepts

I found figuring it all out for myself as a big part of the fun.
