I know it's odd to call a remake "Dated" but it's not the story or the gameplay that i'm refering to here... it's the graphics and AI. The AI on the single player are terrible and will run right up and come at you one at a time like a bad kung fu fight scene. I don't remember the AI doing that in the original but still you should repeat a game's mistakes in a remake rather than fix them. The graphics are the other thing that really peaved me when I started the single player. Although the animation is good (movement), the textures and models are... well... dated for a next gen console that's been out for years. If this game would have came out when the PS3 came out the graphics would be acceptable but not now... not when you have games like Crisis 2, Skyrim, Uncharted 3 and God of War 3 to compete with. On the brighter side this game does what makes a good game great... it's fun (the multi-player esspecially.) Fans of the original N64 version won't be disappointed with the multi-player and might even find the single player missions addicting (once you look past the stupid of course.) A good buy if only for the multi-player still. Who knows... maybe we'll see another remake of this game in two years... let's hope they fix the small things though.
