The return to Boletaria is a welcome one. Demon's Souls Remake on the PlayStation 5 shines bright as one of the first true showcases of what this current console generation is capable of, on top of being a faithful recreation of one of the PS3's best action RPGs.

Reviewed by Mitchell Saltzman on PlayStation 5.
From PlayStation Studios and Bluepoint Games comes a remake of the PlayStation classic, Demon’s Souls. Entirely rebuilt from the ground up and masterfully enhanced, this remake 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 and incredible performance.

Theodore Kritikos
Just a question, but why is this considered a Remake and not a Remaster?
Theodore Kritikos
@TheOnlyHumanBeing I see. I just thought of it the way Resident Evil worked on Remakes, so I couldn't justify in my head why this one applies as such too. I guess it doesn't have to include dramatic changes. Thanks for the info, man! =)
@Theodore Kritikos they added Fractured Mode, Photo Mode, new items such as Grains, new weapons, new armour, And Alot of other stuff
Theodore Kritikos
@TheOnlyHumanBeing Have you played it? If so, could you tell me what new features they've added?
@Theodore Kritikos That's because they wanted to keep the original style to it. Imagine they over hauled everything? All the fans would cry and the game Would get review bombed. but nonetheless it is considered a remake since it was rebuilt from the ground up for new hardware
Theodore Kritikos
@TheOnlyHumanBeing I am totally aware of this, but, judging by the looks of it, it doesn't seem like it went through a total overhaul.

3:37 "It is exceptionally grindy and often frustrating in time wasting ways." How is that different?

truthfully, Demon's Souls should be played in "Cinematic" mode.. , even if it's only "30fps", it's still super smooth (as long as you play smooth too, slow & precise camera turning / moving) .. it looks best on that mode.., just turn down the camera sensitivity to about 1/3..; still fast enough, but gud for environment enjoying .. just the Nexus alone looks crazy in Cintematic mode (if the game does not feel smooth on 30fps mode, when turning / moving the camera slowly.., than either your TV settings are bad or your turning to fast / unsmooth) ... use cinematic mode when exploring new areas slowly.., than turn back to performance mode when replaying / grinding old areas faster
Johnny_ B_Goode
@Rai TheNoblesse Ok
Rai TheNoblesse
@Johnny_ B_Goode Cinematic looks better (looks so gud).., but not all areas seem to take the same advantage of Cinematic mode.. ..., truthfully would play on both modes, when slowly and carefully exploring new areas (moving camera slowly), go Cinematic mode.., when replaying an area or running / grinding fast, go Performance mode
Johnny_ B_Goode
REALLY ?? Cinematic mode and Performance mode seem really close graphically . So I prefer by far play Demon's Souls or a Dark Souls game at 60fps. In this games, the timing is so important !

Ah here it is, remastered version of second greatest soulsborn game of all times... Bloodborne will always be the best of course 👑

The thing I loved about Demons souls that I could never find in Dark souls was different build variety. In Dark Souls you can play it one way.. Dodge, duck, dive and Dodge, attack then repeat. In Demons Souls you can make your character into a tank who can weather multiple hits without needing to worry about parries and dodging. OR you can play it exactly as everyone did Dark souls.

I love the Souls games but I am terrible at them.
So I got to see the Xbox 2 and it’s not as big as I thought actually it’s as big 90s PC and the slim disc model is pretty decent size for a launch console in my book... I haven’t seen ps5 yet in person yet but I got to fill the Xbox 2 controller it’s basically the same better d pAd maybe not sure yet but it might be better d pad then PS4 no joke but the lb and even buttons broke on both controllers on Xbox 1 for me playing marvel infinite so I can somewhat say the Xbox white and skinny might possibly get a pass before the ps5 extra large model
