A remake of Demon's Souls

Entirely rebuilt from the ground up and masterfully enhanced, Demon's Souls is a remake of the 2009 release that introduces the horrors of a fog-laden, dark fantasy land to a whole new generation of gamers. Those who’ve faced its trials and tribulations before, can once again challenge the darkness in stunning visual quality with incredible performance. The remake features improved graphics and animations, sound and lighting tweaks and a reimagining of many of the visual, musical and mechanical aspects of the original game.

Even with quality of life improvements in the remake, Demon's Souls feels like a rough first draft of something utterly brilliant. I enjoyed parts of this game, but ultimately put it away because it just didn't feel fair. It's not From Soft's hardest game, but it felt like their most punishing considering the scarcity of healing resources, checkpoints, Soul form, and world tendency. I think those factors prevented me from enjoying a game I would have otherwise liked or even loved.

Demon Souls is in no way inferior to its successors.
Of course, it lacks some quality of life changes and has some janky mechanics, but overall this entry is a milestone.
I played the original on PS3 back in the day and one thing the remake has really improved on is the storytelling.

The only negative thing is the difficulty... for a souls game the bosses are a joke. Somehow the last fight of an area is always the easiest, which takes away all the tension.

worst souls game objectively. mid areas mid bosses but the game looks good and has incredible sound design. its just fine that's it nothing else

Remake buono, sente il peso sotto l'aspetto del gameplay e delle ia

I believe the 2009 version captures a more memorable experience with sound and art direction, but the 2020 version is one where you'll go "Oooh pretty graphics and animation."

Both play identical, but 2020 has item encumberment practically removed and 8 directional rolling.

Okay, Demon's Souls on PS5? Holy crap, it's gorgeous and the challenge is just as brutal as I remember. They did an awesome job bringing this classic back to life – it feels super polished, the world is crazy atmospheric, and yeah, dying over and over again is still part of the experience. Maybe not for everyone if you hate super tough games, but if you want that old-school Souls flavor with next-gen visuals, it's a must-play.
