The remaster just isn't the gigantic visual leap I would have hoped for, especially at $40. And the visual improvements are the ONLY reason to get this version over the MUCH cheaper original.
Getting tired of seeing halfass "remasters". Give me a proper remake, and you'll get proper remake money from me. Want an example? The PS4 version of Shadow of the Colossus. It looks fucking INCREDIBLE, to the level that the landscaping in the UE5 demo didn't really impress me (everything ELSE in the demo was amazing). Instead, SR:TT is content with "we added some lighting filters and slightly improved vehicle/character models".
This is maybe a bargain bin purchase for me, because it's a bargain bin update.
