    A great example of how to make a quality HD remake. Even if adapting the gameplay to modern tastes, Vector Cell managed to keep the original spirit untouched: even if you didn't play Delphine Software's original game, every lover of sci-fi action games would be pleased with it.

    A well-executed modern remake of an Amiga classic.

This is an excellent game and I feel that it has been underrated, the gameplay is smooth and fun and it's definitely more accessible than the original version. Game ratings are funny, seems like a rating comes through and everybody jumps on the bandwagon and prejudges it, be it a good or bad rating everyone tends to agree with it. I love this game and the graphics/gameplay are excellent, controls are WAY better than original. Full Review »

    I personally believe the critics and people who reviewed this either have expected too much of the remake or have never played the original. II personally believe the critics and people who reviewed this either have expected too much of the remake or have never played the original. I spotted a comment stating that it presents "nothing new" and is a "cheap ripoff" of Shadow Complex.

    Would that not make Shadow Complex a ripoff of Metroid? or would the original Call of Duty be a ripoff of the original Medal of Honor?

    This game is a remake of a classic. And you really have no appreciation for the original if you see this one as a flawed game. No, the gameplay is not as "good" as Shadow Complex, but it wasn't trying to be..

    I fully appreciate the nods to the original game in this remake and I'm really thankful the developers kept to the story.
