They finally had a good formula for their games and then never did it again. Ian Sinclair, you are the goat.

Currently replaying this game and honestly, I don't really have strong feelings about it anymore. the super bland maps are pretty mind-numbing, and the minimalistic gameplay makes me want to not play. I love this game's presentation and execution as a remake but the gameplay, story and characters are pretty depthless. Regardless, this game was a contender for best fe and favorite game ever when it came out, but I guess I've grown as a gamer and I don't think I'll come back again after I finish this playthrough.
