Retro video games get real-world makeovers (part 2)

Samir Torres: The technology behind today's video-game consoles and computers lets designers create fantastical, breathtaking environments. But if you're like me, what you really want to see are old, sprite-based characters doing their thing in real-life backdrops. (Actraiser, Altered Beast, Balloon Fight, Culture, Retro, Street Fighter 2, Wonder Boy (VC))

I had no Balloon Fight was so disturbing.

Other than the fact that, eh, it's not so great.

ActRaiser's "Master" looks a whole lot like Cupid. What the hell?

I prefer sprites.
