You know, it's arguable that this remake lost the soul of what was once a truly great game. Yeah, it's pretty undeniable that the graphics are improved but I think that comes at a cost of the aesthetics. Maybe just a bit too real? I don't know, but there definitely isn't enough style. The main protagonist, Aaron Premo, lost his unique 'Anime' styled hair for a darker, flatter, but also more realistic look. Great graphics do not come from realism, that is the main lesson here.
The gameplay remains mostly unchanged, though. That's a positive to be sure. Although, the dialogue is a bit worse than what it used to be. In particular, when you shoot the drugged up hippie, his voice cuts off before he's finished his dialogue! Whereas in the original, the dialogue is all there. Think of what people are missing out on!
All in all, a technically sound remake, but it's just missing something. I'd recommend anyone to just stick with the original.
