A bit late, are we
Lol yeah, title needs updating.

This is why I normally do these threads, I keep updating the title when reviews come in :P

Anyway, 5 stars from TheGamer Demon's Souls PS5 Review | TheGamer (will be on Open and meta).

I feel like most of the time, we have a separate review thread. :P

Same rules as the GOW thread. Give a high, medium, and low prediction.

IE you expect it to get a 95 so you set that as your middle. Then you set 97 as your high because you don't think the game has a good chance of scoring above that. Then you set 88 as your low because you don't expect the game to score lower than that.

RESULTS WILL NOW BE SCORED SO THAT AN OVERALL WINNER CAN BE DETERMINED AT THE END OF THE YEAR. IF YOU HAVE THE CLOSEST PREDICTION, YOU EARN POINTS: SCORE +=100-(high prediction-low prediction)*2. IF THE FINAL MC FALLS OUTSIDE YOUR HIGH AND LOW PREDICTIONS, YOU LOSE POINTS: SCORE -=50.

Review embargo ends when the countdown ends. Feel free to post predictions and edit them up till that time.

92 meta after 5 reviews. Seems like less than 9/10 might be rare for this game but reviewers deeming it worthy of a perfect score might also be rare. Lets see how it balances out.

9.5/10 from Digital Chumps Demon's Souls Review | digitalchumps

Not gonna lie after yesterday I was expecting reviews to start rolling in but we only got 2 today!

Seeing lots of clips and screenshots of this game and I'm getting so hyped to play it.

Demon's Souls Critic Reviews for PlayStation 5 - Metacritic

Now 92 after 13 reviews, getting there. Two sub-90s added. 84 from Video Chums and 88 from Multiplayer.it. A new 100 from VGC.

More than half the scores are 90 so far, I think it needs more perfect scores and 95s to hold an overall average above 90, there'll be some lower scores coming.

Edit: https://www.pushsquare.com/reviews/ps5/demons_souls there's another 10/10 straight away.

Dr. Pezus

93 now! I think it can get 90-91 in the end. Would be great!

Is this the best reviewed launch exclusive ever? Kinda cheating since it's a remake but still. BOTW is the only other one I can think of but it's cross gen.

Super Mario 64.

Halo 1

Last run of reviews has been great. Another perfect score got added from Vgamers. 4/16 perfect scores is a great ratio, 1/11 wasn't.

Legend

Super Mario 64.

Halo 1
I forgot both of those were launch titles. Super Mario 64 has a surprisingly low metascore of 94!

DS can top it even though it's unlikely

9/10 from the best bois. This game is just swimming in 9s.

Edit: just to prove the point, 9/10 from IGN https://www.ign.com/articles/demons-souls-review-2?sf132580076=1
