As a fan of the early series on PS1, I was a little sceptical to see whether this modern rendition would stack up with the constant challenges and deaths experienced in those early games. I am so happy to say that scepticism was misplaced. Wow, what a game. My first impression was of the beauty of the environment, the character models and the weather effects. The cut scenes really tie in the story line, which although somewhat far-fetched, still bring in the dark undertones of the original series. I loved this game. There are so many challenges, traps and good old fashioned gun battles. Just good fun.
