Bargain, it's a great remake. Demons Souls is in good hands

My Daughter was playing this last night, great fun to go through it again. She's very reluctant to go hunting for lizards though

I have this on ps2. Such a great game. Brilliant price!
Great price, amazin game. I played through this on ps+ up as far as the final boss. High five to anyone who can handle that camera!!!!
Started the ps3 version. Is the remaster worth buying?

Wasn't that the PS3 version?
Going for the platinum now, amazing game. Practically a steal at this price & gorgeous on the Pro consoles!

No where near amazing, yet they did an excellent job on the Remaster, this is very old school, good story, well balanced and made with the best intentions. A classic i would say.

Nope it was the PS4 remaster. Was only about 3 months ago.
Fantastic remake. Doesn't lose any of the charm of the original. Easier than the original due to improved controls.

I know it sound snobbish but it always seems a shame to play PS3 games on PS4 especially when they are remastering stuff at such a fast rate.
I’m sure I downloaded this free other day on ps

Defo!
Didn't understand the hype with this one tbh. I remember buying it for PS2 and the wonky controls and empty world were just plain boring.

This is originally a PS2 game, it was remastered on PS3 and was remade on PS4

Don’t forget this was a PS2 game. I think the PS3 version was just a straight port of the PS2 game whereas the PS4 version has been genuinely reworked. It really holds up well, better than most games of that age.

to be honest,it's still the same game with improved visuals.this game"clicks" with some people.but not with everyone.
empty world and camera issues are still there,I found it boring after 2-3 stages for the reasons you mentioned,but some people seem to enjoy it much more.

it's a PS4 remake..
PS3 version was a PS2 remaster..
Downloaded this in March part of PS+, played 30min and couldn't get into it. Deleted it to save some HDD space.
Damn you Psn deals! To many games to play

Worth mentioning as I often forget what was on there and always “purchase” every game just in case. I think this should happen automatically to be honest.

When the ps5 comes out we'll have the chance to play ps4 games, so you can recycle this comment then
It's games like these that put Sony on a different level to Microsoft & the Xbox 1. Why on earth anybody would buy an Xbox now is beyond me. Look at the exclusives on the PlayStation compared to Xbox 1. There's no comparison. I'm waiting for an Ico remaster. Only a matter of time surely.
What a game fellas, you wont be disappointed
Yes! for the price, No for the controls
Maybe I've missed something but I don't see the big appeal with this game. For the time it was very ambitious and even now the Collossi (had to look that up!) look decent but it's just very repetitive and dull. Good for the price though.
This was free last month wasn’t it?

Xbox one does have backwards comparability tbf. I have both consoles and I dont play the exclusives they're not that good. I play apex, warzone and the witcher 3. No ps4 exclusive is anywhere near as good as the witcher 3. Horizon zero dawn is nowhere near as good. Stuff like re7, re2, gta 5 and red dead kept my attention. God of war and spider man I got bored of quick.
Bored me this reminded me of the first ever tomb raider not enough action.
Got to be honest this is a game that I want to love. The landscape is in my opinion is gorgeous with immense variety and some stunning views.

The Collossi to be felled are incredible to look at and having to hold on to the R2 button to cling on to them is an excellent way of giving the player the feeling that they to are clinging on mechanics working as a metaphor

But what knackers the game for me is the clunky controls in terms of combat, the horse agro who steers like a lorry in the corners and I find myself fighting with the camera. Which destroys the immersion and emotive impact of the game when the Collossi have been felled.

I have to play this game in 40 min bursts as the games frustrations put me off from wanting to play it more than that in one go and I'm 11 collosi in at the moment.

The original PS2 version has had many plaudits and awards chucked at. It is worth a try at this price but this has been a frustrating play as it capable of being so much more and worthy of the praise it received in the past
