To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Having played the original PS3 game back in the day, I was very much looking forward to get back into the world of Demon's Souls. So, after 10hrs plus in, I can say that I'm extremely satisfied with the work Blue Point made with the remake. The graphics are gorgeous, the sound design is incredibly immersive, the loading times are insanely fast, and even the dualsense controller manages to enhance the playing experience with the haptic feedback. This game is the perfect example of next gen technology in the PS5. Yes, it is a challenging game, but also an incredibly rewarding experience. And once you're fully familiar with the game, you'll receive a lot of replay value from it. Highly recommended!
Top effort by Bluepoint - they could have fixed the interior combat issues though. I see some people freaking out that when you die you have to start at the beginning - thats what Souls games do so dont buy if you want something with respawns etc
