I just finished playing through the original. It was definitely a classic, but not without it's flaws.

My favorite thing about this game was the enemy AI was pretty advanced for a late 90s era game. Groups would split up, use cover, and flank you if possible. Their main weakness was you could snipe them from cover at a distance with impunity.

It had Lots of glitches involving NPCs or items not spawning at the right time, thus preventing completion of certain quest lines. It also had really clunky sluggish wsad control, and awful aiming.

Based on the early reviews, none of that has changed, it is straight up re-skin only, so I am going to pass at this point.
