Bummer. I wasn't a fan of the 2nd original game but was kind of looking forward to this. I enjoyed the 1st remake and thought they did a pretty good job other than the wacky Windows HDR implementation.

That being said there had been rumors that this was going to actually be a remake combining the 2nd and 3rd games which I thought had potential. I thought the 2nd rehashed too much of the 1st and was really bored with it after a bit even though I did finish and replay once or twice more. I liked part of the 3rd, in particular the planet-side content, but then it rehashed parts of the 2nd game. I could see how culling the repetitive content and reworking the unique elements into one game could've been really cool. Oh well.
