VSG Recommendation: Play It
Critics Consensus: Dark Souls Remastered is a very close (almost too close) replication of the source material – nothing has actually changed in terms of content. And while it may not be beautiful, it’s as fun and hard to beat as the original. This is the Dark Souls of Dark Souls games – what else needs to be said.

9/10
GameCentral (Metro GameCentral)

A mediocre remaster of an all-time classic, but by the mere act of fixing (most of) the frame rate problems this becomes the definitive version of one of the decade’s most influential video games.

May 25, 2018 |

Dark Souls Remastered does a fair job of bringing the brutal but fair essence of the original Dark Souls up to the standards of current-generation consoles, including running an almost locked 60 frames per second and the option to play at 4K resolution. A few muddy textures and some slowdown in the most intense and fiery moments are noticeable, but still a vast improvement. Now that Dark Souls Remastered exists, there’s no reason to play any other version, whether this is your first run through or your 100th.

A rock-solid framerate makes this the definitive choice for playing Dark Souls on console today
