The remake movement is getting hotter after the success of Resident Evil 2, but that doesn’t mean there were no excellent remakes before.
No matter how classic a game, gradually, they will be somewhat outdated with the game village’s new standards with the impact of time. The answer to this problem is to remake that game. The gaming industry is witnessing an explosion of “remake” products with so many remake titles coming one after the other.
When people intentionally make the Save Point different from the Save people is a must-have for any game, but there are some places that Save Point likes to play better than the rest pot out.
Not just remaking a new classic game with a unique graphics background, the recent products also have significant changes and additions, almost recreating the original game in a completely new look. The goal is to match the modern game industry but retain the quintessence that made the original game. This year gamers are too looking forward to two new super remake games, Resident Evil 3 and Final Fantasy VII, so before they are released, we will take a look at the most impressive remake games ever.
Yakuza Kiwami and Yakuza Kiwami 2
Yakuza series has been appearing and developing since PS2 until now with many large and small versions. But this series exploded with the performance of Yakuza 0. The great success of this version made more and more people know the Yakuza series. Because Yakuza 0 is a prequel, if you want to enjoy this game’s storyline, you will have to find Yakuza 1 and 2 on PS2, two versions, although the quality is quite excellent but outdated in many ways. Fortunately, Sega has also prepared for this by remake the two games above. Kiwami 1 and 2 own advanced graphics and new gameplay elements from Yakuza 0, making it an excellent choice for fans who are “late” to start the game with Yakuza version 0.
Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes
Metal Gear Solid on PS1 is one of the pioneering games that show what 3D gaming technology can do. A few years later, with the rapid development of 3D graphics, this game’s graphics dropped significantly. In 2004, Konami launched Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes in Konami to play the GameCube. As a remake game of Part 1, The Twin Snakes owns Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty’s advanced graphics technology. While keeping the original design, this remake game also upgraded AI and added several new gameplay mechanics. There are still some ideas that The Twin Snakes does not preserve all the quintessence that made the original game, but this is an excellent remake and worth a try.
GoldenEye 007 debuted on Nintendo 64 is a revolution of the FPS game genre, showing that the console can have quality FPS games. Although the game’s value is permanent, accessing this game seems very difficult for modern gamers. In 2010, Activision and Eurocom released GoldenEye 007, a remake of the 1997 N64 game with changes in the plot and gameplay to suit that time. Although the content still revolves around the 1995 GoldenEye movie, James Bond in this game is played by Daniel Craig instead of Pierce Brosnan as before. It is not as appreciated as the original version, but the GoldenEye 007 2010 version is still considered a quality remake game and worth playing for 007 fans.
Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary
The graphics of Halo Combat Evolved can be considered as age-old, not natural, but so far, people have stuck with it for so long. Of course, those who are “picky” will prioritize the games with more advanced graphics. In 2011, to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the first installment and the announcement of Halo 4, 343 Industrials with Microsoft launched Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, a remake version of part 1. The content and structure of the original game are still kept. Initially, only the graphic background was replaced. Quite a lot of fans were dissatisfied with the new look of Halo 1, saying they liked the older graphics. Anyway, the most significant plus point of this remake game is that it allows players to change the original graphics background at any time, serving both old and new fans of Halo. Recently, this remake was released on PC via Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
Tomb Raider: Anniversary
First launched in 1996, Tomb Raider is considered a revolution in nearly every aspect, including graphics when this is one of the games that show what 3D graphics can do. Over time, Tomb Raider and many other classic games were also gradually obsolete, making room for later versions with improved graphics and gameplay. In 2007, Crystal Dynamics released Tomb Raider Anniversary, which acted as both a copy of Tomb Raider: Legend and a remake of the original 1996 game. This game was rated as a quality remake game while keeping its quintessence and modernizing many graphics and gameplay aspects.
