Well installing BR1 to replay, haven't done it for a few years.
I'm hoping for a few things.
1) Improved textures/models
2) Maybe a little more fan-service (Other than the butcher lady whose boobs are almost falling from her top)
3) A little more in the intro section or missions that expand on Rayne or on her mentor.
4) Better cutscenes?
As for BR2 when i get to it.... Don't make every puzzle require you to use dozens of bodies.... (That was what really annoyed me in the end) Graphically i remember it being good but the story reading like a comic book.
edit: Well that was fast for impressions... First multiple monitors seems to be confused because i have to set it to Monitor 2 to get Monitor 1. And Bink playback is borked to some degree.
edit2: Graphically it looks more or less the same. Cutscenes run at a 20fps or something without intermediate interpretation. Other than a few graphical tweaks where you can enable Bump mapping, Antialiasing, water reflections, and says higher textures. Having water reflections takes the game for me to about 15fps, though turning settings on lower gets me to a HD resolution that's playable.
The download is 6.84Gb, however looking at the Bink video files alone includes Spanish, french, Italian, and russian taking 3Gb of space. Probably a few hundred more megs are in alternate audio too.
From initial impressions, i'd hoped for more.
Looking closely a few of the models look really detailed. But maybe what's really missing as i got into it a while, is there's no music. Maybe that's just the intro section, but the rave music in the back ground i remember being kick-ass and setting the tone.
