"Dark Souls Remastered speaks for itself in terms of the raw mysteries that make it beyond its new paint job The feeling of sharing in Firelink Shrine is as unique for the hundredth time as the first and open mind of The World is just as fresh, sometimes From Software has packed so much into Dark Souls that I find new items or with Experimenting strategies that I've never seen before – proof of the longevity of this particular entry a more than justified remaster.

IGN – 9, Amazing
" Dark Souls Remastered Performs a Fair J whether to match the brutal, yet fair essence of the original Dark Souls to the standards of current consoles With almost 60 frames blocked per second and the ability to play in 4K resolution, there are a few muddy textures and a slight slowdown in the most intense and fiery moments noticeable, but still a huge improvement. Now that Dark Souls Remastered exists, there's no reason to play any other version, whether it's your first run or your 100th. "- Filip Miucin [Full review]
USGamer – 4.5 / 5
" Dark Souls Remastered is a superficial game, but one of the best games in the last 20 years and runs better than ever. Find the challenge and excitement of the original, and returning veterinarians get stricter online options and small improvements to small details. More importantly, one of the best games in the media is easily accessible and available. – John Learned [Full review]
Push Square – 9/10
"Dark Souls Remastered is an excellent remaster of an outstanding contribution to the soul franchise. Those who played the original will feel at home and also really appreciate the visual and technical improvements – especially to Blight Town, which is now running smoothly at 60 frames per second with a butter. However, those who were not at the beginning might not get the inferior visuals and general jankiness that later entries have ironed everything out. "- Glen Fox [Full review]
Fan Boy Attack – 4.5 / 5
" So, once you've been there, you have to go back and play Dark Souls back in Dark Souls Remastered? A game that definitely shaped the roadmap for the upcoming Souls games: the level designs, boss designs, art style and gameplay will certainly hold the Dark Souls of Dark Souls games and the issues that plagued console versions in 2011 have been fixed. .. what else needs to be said here.

GameInformer – 8.75 / 10
" Despite all the improvements, Dark Souls feels old in the face of Recent Software's recent contributions to the genre. The quality loss in the second half of the game, bosses like Bed of Chaos and incomprehensible zones like Lost Izalith remain strange mistakes on an otherwise unbelievable experience.
