IGN published this video item, entitled “Why Demon’s Souls Is The Best PS5 Launch Game – The Review Crew Ep. 2” – below is their description.
The PlayStation 5 is upon us and Demon’s Souls has returned to collectively inspire and frustrate us. The Demon’s Souls remake is every bit as astonishing and brutal as we expected and The Review Crew is here to talk about the highs and lows of arguably one of the best PS5 launch games. IGN’s Demon’s Souls review is live, and this review discussion brings together Mitchell Saltzman of IGN, Tamoor Hussain of Gamespot, and Steve Saylor of Can I Play That? to discuss the Demon’s Souls remake, what makes a remake work, and the accessibility of one of the toughest FromSoftware games. This particular Demon’s Souls PS5 roundtable takes a focused look at some key aspects of our Demon’s Souls PS5 remake review, and looks beyond the IGN review to swap notes with the Gamespot review and the Can I Play That? review. This includes lengthy Demon’s Souls gameplay impressions, discussions about new features, and of course, a lighting round. What would a new IGN review show be without a lightning round? IGN Review Crew invites folks from all over the gaming community all over the gaming community to talk about the biggest and best games. We’ll dive deep into each review, talk about the things we loved, the stuff that needs improvement, and probably have some spirited debates and a few laughs along the way. We’re kicking things off with Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, but in the coming weeks we’re talking about Demon’s Souls, Xbox Series X, Spider-Man Miles Morales, Playstation 5, and Cyberpunk 2077.
