Demon's Souls is the perfect example of how new hardware can take an existing game to the next level. The estic is at its peak and the horsepower of the Playstation 5 makes the world more engaging. But above all, the super-fast charging times help balance an already ultra-difficult combat system.

Bluepoint Games and Japan Studio have outdone themselves yet again with the remake of Demon’s Souls on PlayStation 5. The teams have stayed faithful to the core of the original game while making massive upgrades to the technical side to show off what the new console can do. Some nice quality-of-life upgrades have also made the game more enjoyable but no less challenging. Demon’s Souls is the best showpiece of what PlayStation 5 can do right now and if you’re a fan of the “souls” genre then this is the perfect way to experience the game that pretty much started it all.

The most gorgeous remake of a game yet and one that transcends the original developer's current output, and an inspired choice to bring one of the PS3's gems back to become one of the best games this gen.

Bluepoint once again offers us another impressive remake, perhaps its most ambitious proposal yet. With spectacular graphics, and the typical gameplay of the saga, perhaps it is missed a little that it has not tried to go beyond the original. Even so, an unmissable work that alone can justify the purchase of a PlayStation 5.

In Demon's Souls, a touch of smart quality of life changes and gorgeous visuals go a long way in modernizing this tough PS3 classic.

There's friction between the original and this lavish remake, but this is a scintillating launch title that shows off the PS5's strengths.

At once both a fascinating history lesson for the now ubiquitous Souls-like genre and an enjoyable romp in its own right, this remake gives plenty of reasons to return to the Nexus
