Is this remastered or just a rerelease of the PS3/360 version?

Remaster with all DLCs. 1080p with 30-60fps and better visuals and textures as I read.

I would imagine it's a port of the PC remaster.
Wow, that's a fantastic price for how much of a brilliant game you get.

Really thought this would be in the £25-£30+ range.
So are Capcom still working on Deep Down

The PS3 version included the prequel as a bonus. Are both games remastered, or is that too much to hope for?
Didn't even know this was a thing. I love this game (more than any wrpg) and still have it for PS3.

I am not sure what prequel you are referring to? I think Dark Arisen was the complete version (the one contained the vanilla version too) and this remaster has all the DLCs as well on top.
Excellent game, I've been playing the PC version. Excellent value, many hours of gameplay

The only fault with Dark Arisen was they replaced the title screen music.
Currently playing through this on the PC, I'm 10.4hrs in and I'm finding it HARD WORK, went in expecting a lot more given the reviews and the comparisons to Dark Souls (one of these reviews came from my gf who finished it *shakes fist*) however unlike Dark Souls this game has zero character. Paper thin story and very open but dead world make it feel very bland. I'm trying to fine lore or even something interesting to look at but it's just generic fantasy here

Combat is different and would be fantastic if it wasn't for the pawns who just make it chaotic and unrewarding as they steal kills and only seem to want to heal the main character, leaving the other pawns as cannon fodder that the main character (you) have to run around to revive putting yourself in unnecessary danger. Yes I have tried tweaking the personality on my main pawn to change this but it doesn't seem to make much difference. Due to the aforementioned chaotic nature it feels much more button bashy than skill based.

Difficulty is very hard to pin down too, you can come across a creature that destroys you and your team in 30 seconds which leaves you thinking "f*** I'm never going to be able to get by" only to reload your game and walk over the same creature in 30 seconds without doing anything different?!

Graphics on the PC version maxed out are a mixed bag, lighting is beautiful but characters and textures are horrible.

I'm going to stick at it to see if it gets any better but so far I would not recommend, which is a shame because I was looking forward to this game... I'm definitely in the minority with my feelings on this one though so it could boil down to it just "not being for me"

This game was a strange one. I played the demo when it first released and thought it was one of the lamest games I've ever had the privilege to play. Fast forward to dark arisen and was given the game as a b'day pressie. Never played it for months as I still had the ever lasting memory of that awful demo. Thought I'd try it just because and wow, one of the best RPG games I played last gen. Why Capcom never pulled that demo and replaced it with something else I'll never know. Play this game even if you think it looks garbage initally. You won't be disappointed. Awesome game.
Does anyone know if they put a better method of fast travel in? as lots of the missions tended to be walking back and forth the entire length of the map fighting the same emplacements of enemies.

I think as a switch owner that is a sentence you're going to have to get used to saying time and time again: "i would have loved a switch version"

Still got my fingers crossed the rumoured dark souls trilogy making its way to the switch!

Lol you just suck and have bad taste....


This game is widely loved by many and considered one of the best games from last gen


To play this game at current gen the best it could be at this price is a no brained go back to your Souls games with non existent story and lore you have to find yourself lmao

Must be bad taste on my part then because while this game certainly isn't difficult, it's definitely bland and uninspired.

If you could point me towards the epic and deep lore to be found within this game which is actually considered a guilty pleasure amongst most people then I'll happily have a look for it.

As I said, I'm going to continue to play this and hope things change but at the moment combat (especially if there were no pawns) = win, everything else not so much.

Oh, and thanks for your opinion, I'll go back to the Souls series in time but EYE: Divine Cybermancy, The Observer and Mass Effect Andromeda are on my radar as next to finish on the PC alongside cleaning up the story missions on the Taken King/Rise of Iron with the gf on the PS4 while waiting for a good price on D2.

P.s. I did not knock the deal, it's a very good price, in fact I voted hot, it's just my opinion on the game itself.

Hi Eloo, i just double checked and it looks like there are only the 3 portcrystals still, so only 3 fixed points for limited fast travel. I played the Dark Arisen game and enjoyed it up to a point where the walking back and forth killed it for me.

You get an item called the Infinite Ferrystone which lets you fast travel as much as you want, but you still arrive at the Port Stones (I think they were called?) and you lay those yourself. There's one in Gran Soren and one outside Cassardis, and as I recall the rest are pretty rare but you'd only need 2-3 to minimise the majority of physical travel.
