It is well worth it. The reskinned version is very nice and the gameplay still holds up well. Beware though, some of the mods/options dumb the game down (or at least lower the difficulty) enough so that it isn't nearly as frightening as originally intended. For example you can make it so enemies don't respawn and your weapons degrade much slower. Those changes significantly reduce the tension and practically eliminate heart-pounding-oh-shit-run-for-your-life moments, in my opinion.
Well, I'd probably use the slow down the weapon entropy patch, because that drove me up the damn wall when I first played, I still remember being pissed at that 15+ years later. Fire my upgraded, 100% shotgun a couple times and it's already at 75%? IN THE FUTURE!?!
