I think people generally are too negative towards these remakes. Have tried both of the games and the graphical overhaul is bigger than I thought it would be.

I think the issue is that the porters fuck with the art and atmosphere too much. If it was just a straight remaster, maintaining the look and feel of the original, people wouldn't care. But they straight up change things for no reason, like batmans face, or just flat out render hair in a way that looks god awful. It fucks with peoples memories of games they loved.

Moral of the story. Port houses need to leave shit alone!

Yes. In-house is the proper way.

I agree with you to some extent but, in this case Halo 1 and Halo 2 Anniversaries was much worse in that regard. The Silent Cartographer suddenly looked like an tropical island which didn't make any sense at all.
I just mean that it seems to be unreasonable much hate for these particular Batman Games while some other remasters have gotten away quite smoothly.
Most people aren't really even complaining about the art differences you mention, but point to the fact that the graphics actually are worse from a technical stand point.
That's not even close to be true, just a few of the character models in the cutscenes appear to be worse than before. Other than that, it looks much better.

Just check this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hNsT6g9SEAw
They've done a quite massive job on textures etc. Just compare stuff such as the brick wall - it now holds up very well closeup.
Alot of other remasters haven't been that ambitious that way.

Thats just what I meant, they could have stayed closer to the original look and feel at some times though, you're right about that. But I'm very satisfied with the graphical overhaul overall. Much more so than I expected to be.

Technically speaking its a graphically better game than Gears of War 4 for instance, which is brand new triple-A release based on the same Engine.

    toelessfoot Right. I think programmable shaders were adopted fairly early on consoles (xbox360/ps3) (4 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @toelessfoot: Well, only recently they have been. I think this is the first gen I've seen where PC's are playing catch up. Not through hardware power, but through development cycles (4 Days ago)

  • toelessfoot

    toelessfoot Yeah I think innovations on the console side are taken up more quickly by PC than vice versa because consoles are really lead platform for everything (4 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite At least for most gamers. Similar to when everything went to pci-e (5 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite I think we could be seeing a dramatic shift in PC hardware where it'll be essential to own both an SSD and a next gen card with the api's to use them. That also would probably require new motherboards (5 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite If a game is built from the ground up to take advantage of that, though... (5 Days ago)
