    Overall, this is a very faithful remake of a classic and beloved shoot-em-up with a fascinating world setting, now brought to life in a new and visually vibrant way. There is a definite learning curve here though, even for such a simple and direct control setup, but it’s worth sticking with and becoming The Divine Visitor the world needs.

    Panzer Dragoon: Remake is a solid take on the classic Sega Saturn shooter. Hardcore fans may find that certain aspects changed for the worse while newcomers may be perplexed by its barebones approach yet it's hard not to enjoy your time with this on-rails remake.

    The Panzer Dragoon Remake marks a welcome return for one of Sega’s most enigmatic series. Although this first game is slightly hamstrung by its own position in history, it implies that the return of Panzer Dragoon is in very good hands.

    Releasing the original Panzer Dragoon as a standalone remake is a bold move to begin with.

    Panzer Dragoon: Remake is a flawed remaster of a cult classic that adds little worthwhile, but still retains what made the original enjoyable.

    Panzer Dragoon: Remake is a good game that nostalgic fans will like. However, some issues such as its poor controls or the lack of innovation make the title not shine as it should on Nintendo Switch.

New players should, however, try it before buying it because the arcade and old-school gameplay is not for players who cannot be satisfied with a simple but very fun style. Beautiful, good grip, great music and magnificent atmosphere, Panzer Dragoon remains a reference in its genre of play. Expand

    This is the first time I play a Panzer Dragoon, so I was no familiar with the series.
    After the latest update, the games as improved a lot. The gameplay i's pretty fun and the music is good. Graphics wise runs smoothly but some backgrounds are not the sharpest. This is a short game, where you can get the most value by playing with the hard mode and the Stage 0 (endless mode)
    This a good remake, it remind me of the old Arcade games, where you have to "earn" the continues.
    My only complain are the gyro controls, they are mapped very linear with the movement instead of being more fluid and accelerate when moving the controller faster, it;'s not like a Splatoon 2 experience.
    This is a shame because it's really hard to use the "modern" mode of controllers with a bad gyro experience, "Classic" mode of the controllers is quite good, so It's the default way to play, but I feel this is a missing opportunity, I would like to move the dragon to avoid damage with the sticks and use the gyro for aiming.
    I got my version from Limited Run games, the physical release comes with a nice manual with comments of the original game and nice art box with a cover that has art on both sides.

    Supidly Terrible, graphics are mediocre, even ugly at times, color is really odd, Sound is generic and lacks the personality of the original.Supidly Terrible, graphics are mediocre, even ugly at times, color is really odd, Sound is generic and lacks the personality of the original. Also theres input lag on the controllers, it doesnt add anything to the game, is better to play the otiginal. Prize is absurd 25€ for this is a SCAM. Same replayability than the original. ZERO add ons. I love the panzer dragoon series but i dont want this, is not fair to the franchice to have this CHEAP remake. Expand
