I like it to be honest

Dsfix does not have the same effect on the image that the remastered version has, since in the remaster version there are more stable fps.

If i haven't play darksouls 1. Is a good option this.

from software doesnt do a effort for the great saga

I think the skybox colours looked nicer in the original. Lighting looks nicer in the remaster, though

I'm so disappointed. Seriously

This remaster is a disgrace, mind bogglingly disappointing, an abomination, especially for pc users.

You dickheads really do whinge about anything, it's a REMASTER. NOT A REMAKE. Of course it's gonna look exactly the damn same.

The only thing I'm waiting for the Remaster is farming Humanities for the Fair Lady again. Now I'm sad.

Is it Ps3 Vs pc? 😏🖕

I AM UNIMPRESSED
Diego Quezada (12 hours ago)

The textures, lighting, particle effects, and general bug fixes are very welcome improvements. But when I first saw the trailer, I was hyped for a full-on remaster with the same art styles and levels of detail as Bloodborne and Dark Souls 3. I mainly blame Halo CEA and MCC for setting the bar *SOOOOO HIGH* when it comes to modern remasters. But hey, who am I to complain. DS Remastered is still a pretty decent improvement for what it's worth.

Remaster: The deliberate removal of texture quality, depth and artistic consistancy by third party developers with little to no understanding of the design principles of the orginal product, for the purposes of short term captial gain.

Looking forward to downloading a Reshade + SweetFX 23 min after launch. Call it: _DSRFix_ !

Only true Dark Souls fans hate everything.
Antoine Charbonneau (20 hours ago)
except for the fire animation, it look worst and the lightning is garbage

Things people fail to notice: - Fromsoftware has nothing to do with this remaster. So don't expect major changes. - This game is meant for people who own current-gen consoles who missed out on this game. - The remaster looks better, while keeping the original feel of the game. It has new effects, realistic lighting, higher resolution, 60fps and better performance. -Also, this is a remaster, not a remake!

They couldve added all of this in an update for the original dark souls lol

Blighttown became Brighttown and Smoothtown? SOLD
Y porque no una comparacion del dark souls remastered con el dsfix?
Dick Chocholate (1 day ago)
So they just turned the brightness up and made the fire look better. That’s about it
Shawn Almighty (1 day ago)
Not that much of a difference. Would rather plug in my old Xbox 360 to re-play the game rather than buy it again for my PS4
skully (1 day ago)
Here's a comment I bet no one has read before. I can't notice a difference and gameplay is same. 👌😂
DoubtORLife (1 day ago)
dsfix is the real remaster, made by modder
David P (1 day ago)
So basically no difference other than more in depth reflection on armour and a bit of mist ........

Tbh i think it looked better in the original
Vincent Verciglio (1 day ago)
I’m a huge fan of the Dark souls series and I have to say that this is insulting to the dark souls 1 fans that have waited years for this
BiyikFrostDiaz (1 day ago)
For those who have conquered it, it will be a pass But for those new to it, it might be something to consider
Jake Sherrington (1 day ago)
only thing im looking forward to is playing on my switch
Frederick Gallinger (1 day ago)
As a seasoned Souls veteran, I feel obliged to buy this remaster.
Fernando A (1 day ago)
Omg. It literally looks depressing watching the comparison, especially with the music. It seems as if we're trading good shadows and lightings for better frame rate? After 7 years?
thiago hiromi (1 day ago)
This game really deserve a remake...
SSJ KID (1 day ago)
I’ve never played a Dark Souls game before would anyone still recommend this remastered version? (I don’t have a ps3 or 360)
madcow BRO (1 day ago)
Is this what a modern remaster is? Change the lighting a little and remove the FPS cap?
Red Storm (1 day ago)
Only good thing to come out of this is fixed blight town and a few quality of life things. Pretty sad
Edgar Allan Poon (1 day ago)
And the award for laziest HD remaster of all time goes to From Software.
Cody Orvik (1 day ago)
Of course IGN is cheesing the boss with firebombs lol.
xtxschmidt (1 day ago)
Pretty much the same besides for minor added effects, except with worse lighting. Nothing new added save for a single bonfire. This is actually worse than SotFS which is incredible
FreakMagic (1 day ago)
I wish the Depth of Field effect was still in the Remaster. They's my only real complaint. It was a nice effect when looking at things far away and close up. Added to my mersion.

Finally.... 7 years of hard work to bring us a half assed pc port... I’m spoiled 😩😩😩💦💦💦💦

Original is better
HollowBurnsey (1 day ago)
Don't know why people are so upset. This looks beautiful, just been playing ps3 version and comparatively this is stunning. The lighting, textures, particles etc. Amazing! If you loved Dark Souls for the gameplay, characters and world it builds now we get it on current gen looking astounding. Plus 6 players, quality of life/ bug improvements(e.g. moveset swapping gone) and with it looking good PC folks can focus on fun mods instead of using up power for it to be pretty. Hope to see folks back in this Gorgeous View ahead. Long may the Sun shine!!

Yikes...
Eric Cartman (1 day ago)
Don't watch it on your smartphone. So you won't see a difference
Matthew Hilliker (1 day ago)
This remaster is worth the buy (at least on console) for one reason smooooth 60 fps, even in Blightown.
The Mastur Ch33f (1 day ago)
Matthew Hilliker £40 for 30 extra FPS ? Are you mental ???
Dylan Bailey (1 day ago)
I'm glad to see the FPS fix for Blighttown, but I'm disappointed at the "lack of" this remaster has. Graphics don't make a game, but after seeing Bloodborne and Dark Souls 3, I was hoping they'd do something similar with DS1.

Ew ew ew ew ew
Joel T (1 day ago)
Very excited for this
Julio Gonzalez (1 day ago)
DS3 still better tho
Harold Salita (1 day ago)

Take my $40, I don't care. I seriously just can't wait to play this again!

I guess it looks “cleaner”. But it lost a lot of personality with the lighting.
Charles Owens (1 day ago)
Why is the lighting so bad in the remaster?
michael vang (1 day ago)
Mother of all cash grabs lol.
Iman Jamili (2 days ago)
A comparison with dsfix would B nice 2
jeffrey rodolfo (2 days ago)
There was more of a difference in the Red Dead Redemption graphics update and that was free. Still, hopefully people who never played Dark Souls can enjoy it on their new consoles.
John LeMahieu (2 days ago)
Trilogy coming soon for PS4...?
Todd MacPhee (2 days ago)
From the release of the first remastered trailer we knew there was very little difference. No need to be disappointed
Jose Gonzalez (2 days ago)
The way i see it this is a remaster that's prolly only worth it if you didn't play the first one but if you have this is prolly gonna be underwhelming
Elier Leal (2 days ago)
Besides the lighting and some performance issues it’s the same
Happy dæys (2 days ago)
It's a bittersweet feeling to know how mediocre the remaster is... but how I still want to buy darksouls for switch. sigh*
Oh my god... you can actually see metal on Oscar's helmet where eyes should be XD *GOOD JOB QLOC*
Sandor Clegane (2 days ago)
Am I the only one that notices big deferences?
Hayden Hakes (2 days ago)
It is darker and shittier. The fact it is going to be on the Switch is the only good thing about it. I didnt know making things worse was remastering them.
Memes 4 Kings (2 days ago)
Literally looks like the first game has better graphics
Ahmed Qasim (2 days ago)
A joke.
Zak Loban (2 days ago)
Crying real tears😂😭. Sadly not worth it for me
funnyman66100 (2 days ago)
Would not have noticed a difference if there wasn’t any text telling me.......
Maxime Gagnon (2 days ago)
Original is best graphic lol 😂
snake plissken (2 days ago)
where did the godrays go
The Honest Void (2 days ago)
Like its a definite improvement, running at 60 frames with sharper imaging and the lighting changes do make a difference. But there really isn't anything else they did to it other than performance changes, which is all well and good because DS1 chugged...but still...this is really disappointing.
Brandon Lew (2 days ago)
Come on guys at least PS4 owners gets to play it
Zhire (2 days ago)
be wary of trap ahead, therefore try parrying
Kevin j (2 days ago)
So basically higher frame rate lol
Axel Andersson (2 days ago)
Looking forward to play this game again!
Gabriele De Carlo (2 days ago)
I onestly think the original looks better
IJSKOUDE MELK (2 days ago)
2018 version looks more exposed.
Georgee The GeNeSiS (2 days ago)
The whole reason for this remaster is the 60fps and better multiplayer, and I can appreciate the nice touch ups here and there, like the improved fire and particles effects, the nice smoothing, anti-aliasing and ambient occlusion, the better lighting and reflections effects. I'm in.
Mark Waring (2 days ago)
So you're telling me that you made zero changes and I have to spend $40 on them? Pass.
TheWinter99 (2 days ago)
Think il just stick with my 360 version on my Xbox one
ASz z (2 days ago)
From software be like just make the fire bigger and call it a remaster 😡
Blanc Despair (2 days ago)
They c hanged the lighting and shaders. That's all
DankLord Popim (2 days ago)
looks a bit better. dunno what everyone is bitching about. and hey mo more blight town lag.
Ragnaknight (2 days ago)
The reason this game simply cant look better on PS4 is simple. Its called Switch.
Esesem ssm (2 days ago)
When you realize that, at near distance view, the original looks better than the remaster
SectionEight (2 days ago)
Why didn't they just update the visuals of Dark Souls 1 by using the graphics engine that was used in Dark souls 3?
Lewis Hall-Watson (2 days ago)
The remaster losses the atmosphere
Venkat Madduri (2 days ago)
Unpopular opinion: I think the remaster looks good and will definitely get it.
Demented (2 days ago)
basically just better fps.
Abraham Delgado (2 days ago)
