Dark Souls Remastered

Gently Modifying A Masterpiece
by Daniel Tack
Concept:

Bring the classic title that brought a subgenre of challenging dark fantasy to the spotlight back with quality of life improvements


Graphics:

The seven-year-old title feels its age in this department, though the steady 60 FPS is a significant boon


Sound:

Sparse use of music and traditional fantasy sounds accentuate the gloomy atmosphere


Playability:

The carefully measured combat of Dark Souls can be daunting at first, but with some effort anyone can take the journey


Entertainment:

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


Replay:

Moderate

Seven years later, the influence of From Software's Dark Souls on the games industry is impossible to ignore. A challenging atmospheric experience through classic fantasy tropes with a grim tint, Dark Souls spurred an entire genre of souls-like titles, and provided a haven for those who love exploration, larger-than-life boss battles, and a world drenched with mystery. Dark Souls Remastered is the way to play the game today if you're on console, though PC players may have experienced many of the same improvements via Durante's famous DSFix mod.

The most important part of the remaster is the upgrade to 60 fps. Even areas that were notorious for slow chugging like Blighttown run smooth the whole way through (although the zone is still an abomination of toxic poison, ogres, and rickety ladders). Everything looks crisp and clean, and you won't slow down at an inopportune moment when you're jamming your zweihander into a disgusting monstrosity's flesh. For those that experienced the original title on console, these changes alone make the remaster worth the price of admission.

In addition, Dark Souls Remastered brings other aspects of the game up to speed with its modern counterparts like Dark Souls III. You can remap your buttons for a control scheme that suits your playstyle, use multiple items at the same time instead of having to laboriously consume each little bundle of souls, and change your covenants at bonfires. Even playing with your friends is easier than ever thanks to the implementation of a password system. These minor changes are nice additions, and don't fundamentally alter anything from the core title.
