Not sure what that reviewer is expecting

Its currently the best looking game on any system

The review states as a reason that it's missing next gen features like raytracing and has some blocky geometry.

This game screams next gen and offers such a huge jump in fidelity over last gen. His claim is absurd.

A new subgroup of the Graphic Whores, the Ray Tracing Whores.
Nothing without Ray Tracing will satisfy them.

I guess if I knew who that was in that avatar I'd understand the argument, but that gif the one guy shared his supremely awful.

I don't know why I looked at the user reviews. so what do you guys think is this going to be the best reviewed game of the year? I know we expect cyberpunk to be that but it might get delayed again and it might have points docked off at for their crunch culture or some other b******* they decide to make a fuss over.

Glad it's doing so well. Definitely is stunning. Bluepoint has shown time and time again that they are a fantastic studio. They deserve all the accolades they receive for this remake.

Looks like it's hs been very well received, might pick it up when the price drops , give the a souls type game another go, always given up in the past from drying to much.

MS jumping on the hype train heavily discounting the original souls game remasters on Xbox.

Appreciated and God bless your attitude, but was it truly fucking necessary to scar for life innocent posters who just wanted to celebrate this game success?

It'll take years to remove that shit from my brain.

I'm afraid i'll remember too much of the original to enjoy it. To me, a big part of these games is exploring the unknown.

They've started to review bomb Demon Soul's on Meta :messenger_loudly_crying::messenger_loudly_crying::messenger_loudly_crying::messenger_loudly_crying::messenger_loudly_crying:

That 90+ rating is offensive to some.

They have started from the very beginning. Interestingly, most of them gave mainly to the PS5 launch exclusives very low scores and maximum to Xbox games. I guess no quality games to play with on their beloved console.

Pleasantly surprised. I loved the original.
Was expecting score in the 80’s


I mean, it should receive that. It's still the same game, but prettier. I though 89 in metacritic for DeS back in 2009 was fair, especially in an era before DaS, perhaps even a bit low. I still think both of them are around a 9/10, due to my own preference for DeS's levels. Bosses are way dated, even as puzzle bosses. I mean, if a 2009 plain remake beats out the other titles of the series, sans Bloodborne, there's either been something wrong with every subsequent game in the series or reviewers are definitely caught into hype and overrating it. I feel like the user reviews are much fairer, hanging around 8.8/10, which is still high, but seems more sensible.
Maybe a lot of reviewers are new to the series though, which I could see would make them rate DeS very highly if it's their first Soulsborne experience. It was my third or fourth and it was definitely special, though most of the community has prefered DaS.
