However, these same elements also highlight Demon's Souls flaws. Characters look good, but the animations are a little stilted. There are a variety of attack animations, but some look awkward. Weapons and armor are intricately detailed, right down to scuffs and other imperfections, so you want to keep looking at them. At the same time, the closer you look, the more you notice imperfections.
In general, Demon's Souls soundtrack is forgettable. Every once in a while, you'll catch a few notes of a dramatic score, though it doesn't last long nor does it stick with you. Most of the time, you're wandering the world with only the sounds of enemies and your own attacks to keep you company. Voice work is equally adequate, though it doesn't quite match up with character animations. It's similar to Fallout 3; there is a disconnect between the voice and the character speaking.
