It seems to me, this game is merely capitalizing on the popularity of the original, and taking advantage of a better graphics engine for re-packaging. Now, I admit that the speed at which a game is created vs. evolution of gaming technology, I’d be surprised why I haven’t seen more of this. It happens all over the Gameboy market in that games that were for Nintendo were re-packaged for the Gameboy, and then Super Nintendo for the Gameboy Advance, etc.
Personally, I’d prefer they just go make the new one instead of re-coding the old one; but I realize there is money to made, and many who have never played the game would love to see it with the updated graphical engine. I think this a way to make more money off of the brand while they bide their time making the updated one for the new Playstation. Course, they is relative, because whoever made the original could of sold the rights similiar to how Max Payne 2 went down.
…at any rate, even though I don’t agree with the execution… I’ll still buy the damn thing.
