    GODS Remastered is an odd remaster. The brand new visuals help give this incarnation of Ancient Greece a far more agreeable presentation with a proper lighting system, some much-improved character models and a soundtrack that helps do justice to the unforgettable original. But peel away those cosmetic changes and you’re left with a once brilliant action-platformer that has not aged well. Compared to the side-scrolling platformers that followed – including Metroid II: Return of Samus, which came out later that very same year – GODS’ groundbreaking approach to AI and premium presentation quickly went from innovative to a creaky old fossil. This remaster is faithful in its desire to retain the meat and bones of the original, but that’s also its undoing.

    GODS Remastered does one job well: it recreates the experience of the original GODS. It also does one job less well: it recreates the experience of the original GODS…without gameplay improvements. After nearly thirty years, the gameplay has advanced very little and while the level design is commendable for its intricate and demanding nature, the gameplay makes this game more cumbersome than it should be, especially for less experienced players.

    Man, this game throws me back to 1991. If you want to replay this classic on the current-gen consoles, please support these developers. TheMan, this game throws me back to 1991. If you want to replay this classic on the current-gen consoles, please support these developers. The only negative thing I can think of is the remastered sound design, just use the original sounds. The remastered sound design just makes my ears bleed, it's so bad : there's no volume control, sounds just sound obnoxious, the remastered ost is so badly mixed. If you play this game with the classic sounds it deserves an 8,5. If you bought this game, please revert your standard setting to the original sounds, only then you will get the true GODS experience. Nevertheless, the bad remastered sound design doesn't reflect the quality of the game luckily. Graphics, gameplay etc. are beautifully remastered, don't let the bad sound mix get in your way of enjoying the game. Expand
