While bare-bones on the surface, Dark Souls Remastered is one of the best games of the last 20 years running better than it ever has. New players will find all of the mood, challenge, and tension of the original, and returning vets are given beefier online options and minor tweaks to small details. More importantly, it keeps one of the medium's best games easily accessible and readily available.

"Portable Souls" should be reason enough to convince anyone of not missing this game, and the Switch version of Dark Souls Remastered is exactly that, no more, no less. Performance is great (30fps great), the visual identitiy of the original game has been restored and, in the end, is as enjoyable as any other version of the game,

The Switch version of Dark Souls simply lacks the polish that the remaster brought with it, and even added in a few issues that aren't present anywhere else. The ability to play the game on the go isn't something that you can get anywhere else, and it is hard to quantify just how much that makes up for the issues. Souls Remastered is still a very worthwhile game, but it is hard to justify this version over any other given the weaknesses that are unique to it.

A good remaster but not a perfect one due switch's poor hardware. At least the gameplay experience is still flawless, while adding a portable element to the mix, makes this version a sure hit.

There's no denying that handheld Dark Souls is still a cool concept, but its struggling framerate makes it difficult to recommend too highly.
