Remakes and HD re-releases are never going to stop, that is just a fact of the video game industry as it stands currently. In most cases not much is done to these newer releases of older titles, aside from putting a few games in a series together and updating the graphics to 1080p in most cases. This is not the case with Vanillaware’s latest release, Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir, which not only had the HD overhaul but it also received some much needed improvements and a few welcome additions.
Platinum Games’ last take on a classic animated series was amazing, as Transformers: Devastation was a ton of fun to play. So it was no surprise when they announced a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game in the same genre of a 3D hack and slash. With a new art style and the classic heroes in a half shell, can Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan, deliver the same level experience?
Id Software’s 1993 Doom is one of the most influential video games of all time and it just got one hell of an overhaul. The latest game in the series, simply titled Doom, released earlier this month on Friday the 13th. At this point it’s safe to say it won’t have the same impact as the original but it’s certainly going to give fans of the original game one hell of a good time.
