Hey! I thought this was gonna be pixelated rubbish version only. That snazzed up version looks half desirable! :O

Much improved though!

Yep, showing our age, I used to play this for hours on my 48k.

And check out the border graphics for the original graphic version, I see Underwurlde, Pssst!, Sabre Wulf, Alien 8, Atic Atac (key), Lunar Jetman!! Does this mean they might all come to XBL? That would be awesome! I'd also like to see Cookie and Tranz Am

Ahhhh, them were the days

Looking fawking awesome. Rare is a true master of technologies new and old.

Snake r n roll and Battletoads on the NES were some of the most technically superior games on the system, same goes for at least Kameo, Pinata and Conker xbox. Over a year later I wish even a quarter of 360 games looked as good as Kameo.

That is how you remake a game, maybe, just maybe, all the other easy cash tossers will take notice now.

Still would rather have new titles.

A lot of people have been trying the same sort of thing with mixed results. Not everyone has the resources to make a whole new set of graphics for a game that actually look good. Look at Double Dragon--the "enhanced" version looks much worse than the original graphics to me--it makes it look like a flash game.

They did a decent job with Jetpac though. Now bring on RC Pro-Am!

(and new....like Worms? ;P)

The new version looks awesone, but maybe they'll keep the old version as a bonus? Just don't want to take out old ZX 128k from the store-room to refresh my memories.
Commented on 2007-03-07 08:43:04
haha.. that looks brilliant. I remember the original, even though it wasn't one of my favourites. This looks damn hot though. Rare is really alive and kicking it seems! Bring it!

Did you watch the screenshots at all? The old version is there too :)

Hehe i remember this back in the day.

Looks good.
Commented on 2007-03-07 16:33:04
Looks quite interesting, graphics are actually a proper remake...that's good!

Atleast the classic look is still there for the people who want it

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog But every chance of introducing that variety they either drop, cancel or don't follow through with improved sequels. E3 needs to be amazing from them. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog Before we get them. They need variety to bring in new people. Because forza and halo aren't going to do that (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: basically MS say a lot of things but nothing about what they're ouputting suggests any of it is true. Even if they announce new games, or a SO, or recore sequel, it could be years (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think people who want Rainbow Six to have a narrative focus must be the minority. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @AndreasZ94: I don't think of GR as one of those service games is all. And I'm not sure that Rainbow Six would benefit from having a narrative focus is all. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @AndreasZ94: why does it have to be single player *only* anyway? Games like Halo get by just fine doing both. I think there's room for all three experiences. SP, MP, and games that do both. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Going to guess one is the new Wolfenstein and the other maybe The Evil Within 2, hope not. Please let it be Bethesda Game Studios' new IP. (2 Hours ago)
