    If you want to visit Lordran and enjoy a straight-up bash-the-baddies quest, then you’ll find no better collection of bosses than this. If a new kind of adventure appeals, however, one in which quick fingers matter less than brains and human cunning, there’s still nothing like Dark Souls. After seven years its mystery has diminished, but it’s still among the best of the best.

    The masterpiece that made Hidetaka Miyazaki famous is back in a wonderfully remastered edition. As it, there is no change to the original structure, just a revamped lighting engine and a solid sixty fps through to whole game. The budget price is very good for the few who still never played this classic, and a good chance for the rest who loved it to play the definitive edition.

    It is nice to see that this extraordinary game has been modernized. In terms of visual detail it still is old-fashioned though, but it was and still is a beautifully crafted action roleplaying game that leaves its mark.

    This is certainly the best way to experience Dark Souls on console.

    To play this remastered edition of the game is to be reminded of how the original exerted an unmistakable influence on such contemporary video games as Nioh and The Surge.

    Just a polished version of an already great game, but for me, it was a bit more special. With the technical issues eliminated, Dark Souls can shine and is a much more satisfying experience.

    Rather than a remaster, it's a port. It will entertain mainly rock fans who want to have a complete collection on a new console or complete Souls novices. [Issue#287]

The game runs smooth and maintains 60 FPS almost all the time. I recommend it to everyone who is a fan of Souls games. Expand

I'm honestly happy they remastered it cause my PC is not good for gaming and my PS3 is dead. Expand

I don't expect Darksouls to be done that well but I do expect it to be above a noticeable level, particularly so I don't notice the flaws with any glitches or broken aspects from the base game to be fixed.

    It also goes beyond just a poor overhaul but certain things simply being broken now, such as PvP which is unbalanced, unfair and being taken advantage of in the worst of ways. Very little is done, even on the surface to warrant the price here and DS fix was a much better option for free on PC. Here on console this is simply a HD port with little done to fix bugs, revamp areas or rework some of the poor aspects of the game. There is many quality of life things that could have been added from DS3 that feel odd to have been left out at this price point.

    If you can find a PC code for the original just buy that and download DS fix, modders done it better for free.

    It pretty fun and some nice nostalgia until the longer you play and you realize just how little has been done, how bad some of the mid game to late game areas are compared to souls standards since BB/DS3 and just how ridiculously broken PVP is.

    If Demon souls is up for a remaster which I'm sure it will be, then the devs need to get the message that they must do better, please don't reward this laziness.

    this is an absolute trash of a port has a lot of the same problems as the older ones honestly hope the company goes under soon because of thisthis is an absolute trash of a port has a lot of the same problems as the older ones honestly hope the company goes under soon because of this it just shows how much like EA they have become the bottom line is all they care about literally ported a ps3 game to ps4 fixed like 2 bugs out of the 90 that are still in it and surprisingly still working and still getting YouTube videos and nothing being done about from software has to be one of the laziest companies i have ever had the displeasure of supporting over the years this is a quickly lazily hashed together port of ps3 version with bare minimum in changes basically just a money hungry greedy ass way to scam long time fans who loved the game and give them a huge **** middle finger for wasting their money on it btw this is coming from someone who has beaten every game in the series including bloodborne this was way below expectation and just absolute **** work for from software this was clearly used as funding for new bloodborne or just to line pockets of the big wigs either way it is a ****g disgrace and i will be informing all my souls-borne buddies to not buy the new from software games till a year or so after release as we will no longer be spending full price for from software games as they have proven to us with this "remaster" i use quotations because i dont believe anything was remastered nothing looks different too me other than more bloom and lots of bleeding of color to look like light hell if u play the game the character light is centered on toon i have ran into many transitional areas that are so black u can see nothing until u step a foot or 2 all the way in this game is very very bad would even rate it under old school demon souls just an utter piece of **** and the devs should be physically punished for how **** bad it was and hyping it up as much as they did that it was going to be this amazing remake of dark souls when in all reality it isn't even a remaster just a port any dumb ass calling this a remaster should be shot in the **** head and buried in a shallow grave for the **** vultures Expand
