Dark Souls Remastered Video Review – Still Punishing

Dark Souls Remastered Video Review

It speaks volumes when a game series has not only become synonymous with a play-style, but an actual difficulty level. To compare a game to Dark Souls often times speaks to its need for precision, its dark overtones, and its incredibly unforgiving nature. Fans of the Souls series were overjoyed to hear about the original games remaster treatment and it has now arrived across all platforms, ready to take that masochistic love of frustration to the next level with enhanced and updated graphics.

Whether you are a seasoned veteran of the series or decide its time to step up and be one of the big boys, Dark Souls Remastered is here, and you can check out our video review below.

Dark Souls Remastered is an updated and enhanced version of the original game from 2011. Players take the role of a prisoner cursed with undeath, breaking free and exploring a world plunged into darkness and death. Rather than tell a specific narrative, the game leaves clues and lore and for the player to determine what happened for themselves, even limiting communication between players. The core mechanic of the game revolves around exploration of the world and collecting souls. The game is synonymous with refined combat, requiring near perfect timing to survive. Dark Souls Remastered also employs a model of trial and error, often times seeing players fall to their enemies dozens of times as they learn their attack pattern. It is widely considered one of the most challenging and rewarding series to date.
