    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.

    Dark Souls: Remastered proves the original Dark Souls to be a pretty solid experience even seven years later. This remaster of FromSoftware's 2011 title includes few but necessary enhancements, like 4K support and, at last, solid 60 FPS gameplay.

    Despite its shortcomings, Dark Souls Remastered is a welcome release that will hopefully breathe new life into the community and multiplayer activity with both new and old players. It may also be the last souls game release for quite some time, given From Software’s latest endeavours.

    Dark Souls Remastered updates one of the most important games of the past generation. Its improvements in terms of resolution, frame rate, multiplayer and some playable details are particularly welcome for console gamers, but not without other flaws for an overly automatic implementation. The PC player, however, has reason to find this edition somewhat more irrelevant.

    Dark Souls Remastered is a nice, shiny new edition of a game that I have never enjoyed. While I respect the game’s genre-creating precision gameplay and acknowledge it’s place in gaming history, I just don’t like this game, and can’t recommend it to new players. That said, it plays fine, and looks better than it ever has. Dark Souls fans already know who they are, and will enjoy this new edition immensely.

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

    En plusieurs point très bref :
    - Vous avez déjà fait Dark Souls et avez encore le jeu ? Passez votre chemin, c'est du foutage de gueule même
    En plusieurs point très bref :
    - Vous avez déjà fait Dark Souls et avez encore le jeu ? Passez votre chemin, c'est du foutage de gueule même à 20€ (rappelez vous que la Skyrim Special Edition était gratuite pour 100 000 fois plus de travail), c'est 0/10
    - Vous n'avez jamais fait Dark Souls mais avez la version d'origine sans envie de la modder ? Moddez la !
    - Vous n'avez jamais fait Dark Souls et ne l'avez pas ? Allez y ! C'est du 9/10 !
    La moyenne est donc de 4.5/10, arrondi à l'inférieur pour la fainéantise et le foutage de gueule qu'est ce """"Remaster""""", qui en plus remet des bugs de la première version de l'époque.
