For someone who loved the original versions of these games I'm sure this is a supurb package. However, if you comare these updated games to the games of today they are lacking. In the words of my wife they felt hokey.
1) updated visuals
2) platform elements (if you like games like tomb raider, uncharted)
1) bad camera angles
2) controls not crisp
3) even though updated....way out of date
I never a single entry in this series, decided to give this a try. It is classic PS2 3D plat-former, the camera because your worst enemy, hit detection is awful..if you choose to fight. I found it easier to run past enemies and hard core park-our my way to a safe spot. I'm 31 years old and grew up on Atari 2600/NES/SNES/Genesis in Elementary, PS1/N64in middleschool/highschool and PS2/Xbox/Gamecube in college. So, it is not just me being jaded b/c all I have played is xbox360 and ps3 my entire life. Nostolgic for some, quintessential PS2 platform camera frustration for the rest.
