It's a sad day in gaming when you have a Top REMASTERED GAMES list

hkgamer2110d ago

agreed, but I will pick up DmC. old games framerate on ps3 was just not as good as i wanted it to be.

Eh no sly cooper collection 😱😢 It's a must play

Crap list, gears of war remastered was awesome, priced right and proof of how it should be done!!


I thought gears of war was a damn good remaster. The nice coat of paint on the single player is a welcome addition and the multiplayer is beautiful.

Gears of War UE is proof of how it shouldn't be done. An almost 10 year old game that runs at a fluctuating 30fps with screen-tearing. And Laggy online matches.

That said, the visual upgrade was really good but also a necessity.

Laggy online matches. Just because your internet is trash doesn't mean it's the games fault. And I had no problem wall bouncing, didn't experience a screen tear once.

Seriously do you just cry about everything you don't play?

I've been playing Gears of War remaster for a while and not once did I experience a laggy online match or even seen screen tearing.

Time to trade in that Zenith and upgrade from that 56k.

I feel like Gears mechanics is outdated. I wasn't feeling the campaign mode. And the AI ain't the best.

The face lift is good for such an old game tho'. It needed it.

Multiplayer is solid too...

DrumBeat2111d ago

Ain't the best? The AI is downright terrible. The classic MP still stands the test of time, though.

I read a really interesting interview with Rod Ferguson about some of that stuff. Apparently it was not an easy decision to go with the old AI engine, as they could have very easily went with the one from Gear 3, which is far superior. However he said that the behavior code for is completely different between the two, so they opted to game with the authentic feel of Gears 1, over a polished current feel.

I thinking the decision may have been the wrong one, as many people new the the series were just disappointed in how dated the game felt.

I personally liked it though.

I agree.

Gears UE was way too low on this list.

Considering the price, the fact that EVERY texture in the game was replaced, the additions to multiplayer, and that every cut-scene was re-filmed using new mo-cap. I'd say it a poor call to dismiss it so quickly, just because the author of the article felt the 10 year old gameplay now feels stale.

Gears: UE was truly "remastered" where several of the other higher ranked titles, you would be hard pressed to tell the difference between the two versions.

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection was a great remaster for 2015 "in my opinion.
TLoU wasn't a 2015 Remastered game, but its my favorite remaster i've ever played.
GTA5 was a really great remaster as well "in my opinion"

YouTube videos don't do either of those remastered games justice.

I can't wait for Heavy Rain/Beyond Two Souls remastered, on disc for PS4.
