    Dementium Remastered is a great addition to the eShop, and shows the higher polished side of things that are available on it. The game packs quite a punch in terms of presentation, and the gameplay is mostly there to match it. If you are a fan of horror games or FPS games, then this is a game that you should check out this holiday season.

    The game’s central issue is that, frustratingly, the hallways and offices of the asylum all look the same, with not even a change in wallpaper color from one floor to the next. You can get turned around very easily, and one wonders how many closets one hospital needs.

    Outside of some obnoxious boss battles, this is a great game from a continuously creative developer.

    Still, if you can endure its quirks Dementium Remastered is a strong horror shooter on the system, with fun combat and a tense atmosphere combining well.

    For $14.99, Dementium Remastered is a bit steep for a game that is pretty short and has very little replay value.

    Dementium Remastered has all the technical qualities to be a good remake...except being an outstanding game. While the visual and audio environments are competent and well implemented, the game loses most of its appeal compared to the original and ends up as a generic title that brings nothing significant to the 3DS library.

    If you're hoping for a story at all, you'll be disappointed. The opening just drops you right into a mental ward without much of any information, and barely anything gets revealed throughout the story. The ending was the rotten cherry on top that just screams directly into your face "find out what happens next in the sequel."...No thanks. Fuck that. That is two and a half hours of my life I'll never get back.

    I have to write this review since people are really picking it apart for the most obnoxious reason (Looking at you Jim Sterling).

    I have to write this review since people are really picking it apart for the most obnoxious reason (Looking at you Jim Sterling).

    Dementium Remastered is a great updated re-release on the 3ds of the original dementium. It was made back in 2007 on a much inferior hardware, so it may not be strikingly surprising to anyone used to the horror genre, and yet still as a budget portable title it works wonders.

    Thanks to the circle pad, moving and aiming results in a much more comfortable experience(plays really good on a 2ds). The upgraded resolution and retouched textures bring up a lot of detail and it just feels nice to gaze upon (can´t talk about the 3d effect tho, so no lying).

    The music is pretty much untouched, and using headphones is still greatly recomended.
    If you have already played/own Dementium, there is very little new content here save a few retouches and easter eggs, but if you haven´t it is a very nice game in the vein of the old silent hill series. It won´t knock anyone out with it´s story (It´s not reinventing the wheel) but what it does, it does it in spades.

    It is also around a 1000 blocks download, so it´s also a great option if you don´t have a lot of space left.

    As someone who played the original on release, I really liked it. Thumbs up!

But it had a few annoying problem that this 3DS "Remaster" have thankfully worked out. Gone are the annoying and unrelenting enemy respawning, which makes this remake much more appealing. But don't be looking for a complete remake and overhaul of the graphics... the 3D is smooth and frame rate smoother, but there is not a noticeable difference outside of that. Still, highly recommended for fans of the franchise or for horror games. Expand

    This remaster adds almost nothing new.

    Dementium Remastered is a horror experience on the go on the 3DS. For starters, the graphics looks better, but not that better. Out of the whole entire game, it fixes the saving issue from the original and fixes the respawning enemies, but other than that, there is nothing new.

    The same story is still here, as the original.

    If you already have the original, then skip this, because there is almost nothing new. There is almost zero replay value, and when I mean almost, I mean almost. In this remaster, they added a difficulty setting, and that's good for it's replay value, but it's not much though.

    Dementium on Nintendo DS was decent portable horror game. When Renegade announce a Dementium Remastered for the 3DS, I was psyche. AfterDementium on Nintendo DS was decent portable horror game. When Renegade announce a Dementium Remastered for the 3DS, I was psyche. After playing the game I realize, it's the same game I played back on DS with minor visual improvements. My biggest complaint our the graphics, even though, it looks better than the DS. The game looks like a old Nintendo 64 game. I was hoping Renegade Kid would give Dementium Remastered a complete makeover , something like Zelda Ocarina of time. The environment and monsters still have the old DS look to them. The sound is OK and the controls are similar to most first person shooters on the 3DS/DS. Overall the game is fun and the only true horror game on the 3DS. I would recommend it, if your looking to play a horror game on the 3DS. But sadly the old visuals ruin the game experience. Just like other other poor HD remakes on PS3/Xbox 360, this new upgraded version of Dementium is disappointing. Expand
