The world design is cool at first, but it gets pretty grating when you have to do a decent amount of back tracking. The actual level design isn't anything special either, and the, uh, not very good second half really bring the game down. Also the boss design ranges from downright unacceptable (bed of chaos) to pretty mediocre, with the two exceptions being gwyn and artorias, who are actually pretty decent. Experiencing DS1 for the first time is pretty special though, so I would recommend playing it.
