Plan 'n Go wasn't the problem, and I don't think experimentation with an established gamestyle is a bad thing. But yeah, this game falls far short of the original games, and that's because of the delivery. A remake should never have LESS content than the game it is supposedly updating. This one just felt like a cheap knock-off with updated graphics. I'm guessing that however ambitious their original plan was for the game, they ended up settling for a "kind of JA" type of game.
