When it comes to the most memorable aspects of Dark Souls, you'd struggle to find someone who doesn't point out the difficulty, the bosses and the combat. But there are so many things that are always overlooked, and arguably, one of the biggest accomplishments overall is FromSoftware's level design.
Obviously not every level is gold *cough cough* Lost Izalith *cough cough*, but when Dark Souls gets its groove on, it's unchallengeable.
Tight, interconnected levels that always find a way to surprise the player in where the lead. Just how intricate these levels are is often lost on a first-time player, but they are so well connected that even veterans find themselves stumbling onto something new every now and again.
And even in touting Dark Souls' level design as being intricate, some of the best areas in the game are considered so simply for the impact and gorgeous spectacle they have to offer made all the more stunning by the remaster's improved graphics. So much so, that there is no better way to experience these levels than in stunning HD and at 60fps. In fact, some levels are at their best with the new frame-rate.
