i agree ..the remake (as it is handled mainly by Blupoint and not by Japan) does poor job to present the imposing size and vastness of the various Colossus areas....also their tendecy wiht resolution to show every bit of detail sometimes undermines the final result (look the rocks in the background or the bridge) ...sometimes less detail is better in order to show -size, loneliness remotness, outlandish atmosphere and generally be more immersive/psychology-touching for the player

I mean I kinda get what he feels too. Cramming tons of detail in the tiniest things around you take your attention off the massive environment and scope of the game

I understand what you mean, but don't get any of that from these three shots..

Ignore the comments this is n4g ,the real PlayStation fans that actually played the original can tell that the original art team were superior,blue point just went for better eye candy

Less detail is better??? what?????? that's only because the PS2 wasn't capable of it. If the they had a much more powerful machine at the time. It would have much more detail in the world. But then if the reverse happened, you would say some shit like where are all the details that made the game great right??

I get what you are saying, but IMHO, more details and clarity is better than artificial blurring or excessive fog to work around hardware limitations during the PS2 days. The original is a work of art and did wonders given the hardware they had to work with during that time, but it is my belief that had the original developer work on this remake, you would see similar results shown here.

Crazyglues58d ago

Yeah me too played it a few times on PS2 and PS3 and still have never got to the end. Well this time ill get this remake and finish it.

Awesome remake yet again by Bluepoint. I can't wait to play this game. I hope they enhance the controls somewhat too!

Don't underestimate Bluepoint Games. They have proven to be the Naughty Dog and Rockstar Games of remasters and remakes.

Dude, they're awesome! While they don't have a true IP of their own, they definitely have proven themselves extremely competent and dedicated. I will trust that any work from Bluepoint is well done and thought out.
