EchoOfMidgar: Cmon, who would ever build a spaceship like this? It makes absolutely no sense. F..e. those squares on the wall, what...why? What's that? What's its purpose? What's the purpose of having walls skewed like in the first Tomb Raider games? It's just ridiculous....

Back in the day, when computers' power was not strong, it was the best approach when building levels but now it just looks bad and awful when replicated to the modern era with modern graphics.

Also what's wrong with all the lights? Is this some kind of disco? One room and every corner of it has a different color. The wall are blue, one corner is orange, the opposite one is red, the one next to red is green.....I am just speechless.....Just awfull...
you are gay for not liking this game
I'll just say, this thread gave me the incentive to play through the original SS1 again (done so several times through the years). And having finished it again, I again echo the OP and think he's exactly on point. Anyone who thinks that the weird abomination that this remake's graphics/style are looking to be, actually captures the original's own, is honestly deluded and doesn't get the original game, or its style/feel, or what made it so great. Not at all.

Honestly though if at this point it comes down to having another abortive fail of a remake that will make a mockery of a spectacular classic game, or just have it cancelled altogether (as all too many crowdsourced games are doing lately it seems), it would just be just as well have it go away and just take the disappointment. Awkward controls and ancient engine/graphics or not, as far as I'm concerned the awesomeness of the original can continue to stand on its own in that case.
SS remake is gorgeous. Just as cluttered and claustrophobic as the original. I dig neon retro-wave aesthetic. But I can understand if someone doesn't.
( how do i delete my own posts sigh )

GR11: I would hope that the franchise is successful, because that would result in more games set in this world.
*Crosses fingers and toes*

GR11: But a faithful 1:1 remake might not appeal to a large audience and might not be economically successful....
I saw some screens/concept art of the modern re-imagining, and I must say it looked somewhat decent at times. Heck, I imagine it might've even had some new areas/enemies/things to explore and have fun with. If I could have my dreams be a reality i'd have loved to have seen both.

That said, the new 1:1 remake looks decent enough, and I will likely enjoy it when I can some day obtain a copy.
(at a decent price, of course, due to being on a budget and also wanting to wait and see what others think of the full game)
Some People totaly ok with it, that Game look like Games. I dont need Games they want to be most Real as possible like this walls would never be built on this ship, make no sense bla bla bla. Games have to be Games not Films, not Books, Games ! You know Games ?
I played the original game and its sequel in the 90´s, and I played the enhanced edition a few years ago. I love the old one, and I played the demo for this one and I loved it. I really like what they are doing, I felt a lot of nostalgia, I think they have captured the spirit of the first game very well. I totally understand other people may not like it, I dont even know how a younger generation may feel about it. I think nostalgia is a very powerful emotion. I undertand the criticism, yet I´m a happy customer for now.
