...Dang, that was kinda harsh.
I like the remake personally. I like the simplified map system, especially since this is the first game I've ever played in the series so I KNEW I'd get lost (which I actually solved by writing down all the street names, what they translate to, and where they will end up at/lead to which plaza all on my phone). The combat takes a lot of getting used to, especially since this is my first, and therefore I'm not as strong as I should be. But, once I learned that "Double Slash" type move (the one that if you tap the key RIGHT at the end of your swing, you slash again) I felt like I could take on a thousand Brigands!
Well... maybe that many is a bit much, but still, I felt more protected regardless. As for the graphics, I like them too! As for the no voice acting, well... Wages of War didn't have any either, and nobody complains about that. Besides, this means you can make your own voices for the characters, which to me is rather fun!
I wouldn't say the remake is pointless, since this IS the only one that HASN'T been done yet, and who better to do this than AGDI?
You and I don't agree on much do we?
