Eh...only get it if you are a big, big fan of RotT. I always thought of it as the red-headed step-child of the FPS genre and this game is a basic updating of the original game, but the first two levels do not come off as anything special.

A dude? With guns? Three random soldiers to shoot at? Jump discs? Coins and ankhs to collect? Fast movement speed? With secrets to find?

That's what you get - that's exactly what you get, that's all you get. It's like a port of the original to modern day systems without (m)any upgrades. On top of that, it has quite a few rough edges and hasn't pushed any boundaries, but it's also a $15 game.

As others have noted, the performance needs some tweaking. I am running it on "ludicrous" and it looks really basic. The performance feels fast, but really inconsistent, too.
The crude videos are indicative of the final game.
Expecting more, but having received the basics of RotT,
