As a franchise reboot we enjoyed the new Strider immensely — it has just enough of the original flair mixed with rapid current generation of twitch gaming charm.
Remakes and ports can be hit or miss. It’s hard to say how much work should be put in or how much is a good asking price. RE4 is an amazing game that was worth every penny when it first came out.
Lost Planet started off as a survival series set in the harsh frozen tundra of E.D.N III. It’s sequel, Lost Planet 2, changed that almost entirely with multiplayer gameplay in an almost tropical paradise.
