    Count me as another who thinks the original looks better. The only thing it really needs is anti-aliasing.
    Thanks to the stylised visuals, games like this and Tron 2.0 only really need a technical pass to bring them up to date and iron out any bugs that may occur on newer hardware / operating systems.

    I think the thing that really stuck out like a sore thumb for me in the remake footage was the implementation of modern lighting. The baked-in lighting of the original suits the comic book look much more than the update's attempt at realistic lighting. I think that's them completely missing the point.

    Maybe it's just a coincidence, but stylistically that trailer for the remake seems like a complete ripoff of the Deathloop trailers.

    https://youtu.be/S8hbS3-gEcs?t=379 is quite funny.

    > Also is that Duchovny reprising his role in the trailer Shadowcat posted? Or did they get a soundalike?

    An earlier section of ^this^ video (from 4:10) demonstrates that they're almost certainly using the original dialogue.

    Big yikes, looks like it'll need significant patching.

    This is why you shouldn't pre-order games.

    Only 9% of 300 user reviews are positive.

    That is lower than every game on this list of the 100 lowest-rated games on Steam.

    Wow. That really is a train-wreck, isn't it? What a shame.

    They can probably patch out the technical problems and then it maybe worth picking up a year from now, on heavy discount or in an indie bundle. No helping the art direction change though.

    The good news is the vanilla game is relatively easy to get running on modern PCs, just apply a fan patch and do some INI tweaks to change resolution and FOV. UE1/1.5/2 powered games tend to age really well on newer hardware and OSes.
