Didn't play the original, very likely won't play this ?
I played one of these back when they originally came out. It was actually very good. I don't know if time will have been nice to it though.
Definitely gonna give this a go, loved the franchise back in the day.
Pandemic = Class.
What I loved most about this series was it took the open world sandbox of GTA and made it something that would interest me. As nice as Liberty City or San Andreas might have looked, who wouldn't have jumped at the chance to level them with the death ray of a flying saucer? ?
This looks way better than I imagined. Framerate still a bit choppy but that's one pretty remake.
Those 'splosions look wonderful. I only played the original game briefly when I rented it around the time the 360 was really hitting its stride so didn't play much of it but remember it being a lot of silly fun. Looking forward to this although hoping the cutscenes aren't too intrusive since every time I scanned forwards there was one of the bloody things playing.
I was never a big fan of the original. Even in the PS2 era where a lot of games were mindless, trashy, run around and shoot stuff these games were always extra trashy and disposable to me. I just never really got what the big deal was.
It was alright, had some fun moments I thought. Though I recently tried to replay it on PS4 and rapidly lost interest. Probably why I’m not massively hyped for this to be fair.
A demo is out for this on Steam for those interested.
Streamed some of the demo today for those interested:
I didn’t remember too much of the OG aside from the premise and little bits and pieces. This left a good first impression though, some of the guns/rays don’t feel as satisfying as they perhaps should do but aside from that it was just great fun blowing people up and throwing cows in the air.
