Teensy quibbles aside, it’s difficult to imagine how this Demon’s Souls remake could be any better. It looks great, it sounds even better, and it’s extremely respectful of the PS3 original, which has aged surprisingly well after all these years. This is an exceptional remake, and it’s exactly what Demon’s Souls deserves.
Although the gameplay of the original Demon's Souls isn't out of date in 2020, Bluepoint still did a perfect remake job. It's not only because the remake version looks like a next-gen blockbuster, but also because it plays more smoothly than before. If you love souls-like games, you really should buy PS5 as soon as possible to enjoy it.
Revisiting Demon’s Souls in this fancy new package was some of the most fun I’ve had all year. The return to Boletaria was a pleasant reminder of just how good the game is, and the influx of new players makes it the current definitive choice for someone looking to get into the series. There’s a certain boldness to releasing the game relatively functionally the same so that a whole new generation of people can experience just how weird it is. While the facelift can cause some dissonance, most will experience a beautiful action RPG with some of the most tightly-designed levels and a bevy of different ways to approach the game. It may not be a brand new game, but even all these years later there still isn’t anything else quite like it.
Demon's Souls is an amazing game to show off that the PS5 is a graphical powerhouse. The mechanics from the original are intact, just like the grim and mysterious atmosphere. This might be the best launch game on the PlayStation 5.
An unforgiving, unrelenting classic reborn for a new generation, Demon's Souls is no more accessible now than it was back in 2010 (though the frame rate is much better). If you've ever been the slightest bit curious about the Souls series then you can revisit ground zero in all its glory, making for one of the best PlayStation launch titles of all time.
While you’ll get a lot of enjoyment from your time with this title, FromSoftware has definitely refined and improved on the design and mechanics in the more recent released Souls games. Without a doubt Bluepoint Games has delivered a brilliant remaster of a niche game that not a lot of people had the chance to play originally. Demon’s Souls is worth checking out on the PS5. But if you’re looking to see what makes FromSoftware so amazing at what they do, you’re going to find a better overall experience in one of their newer titles like Dark Souls III, Bloodborne, or Sekrio: Shadows Die Twice.
Nach Bloodborn ein Spaziergang. Ich habe mir mehr Verzweiflung gewünscht. Dennoch. Es ist der Grundstein eines Genres, welches bis heute fesselt. Das Kampfsystem Scheppert und die Welt sieht fantastisch aus. Die zusammenhangslosen Level sind jedoch ein großer Minuspunkt. Naja. trotzdem ein fesselndes Spiel. Für mich ist dieses Spiel übrigens eher eine 7,9. Für die 8 reicht es bei mir nicht.
Too hard and too easy? Demon's souls benefits from its unique art design and next generation graphics. However I found that playing the game was really hard if you were playing the "correct way" and was really easy when using an exploited strategy. The easy way make it less fun and the hard way is infuriating. Also I found the dodge mechanic to be very unresponsive/inconsistent.
