But that's just it--I *played* the original. This is just the original updated with purty graphics, right? Why should I be excited?
So was Doom3, or almost any FPS for that matter, but that received a ton of hype. FPS games, while they do gain a nice graphics update with each release are all basically the same from a gameplay perspective and we all still play them. HL2 is just HL1 with better graphics and physics.
The gamepay of Pirates is just what made the game so good. They shouldn't change that part one bit! I tried to play the original a while back but the graphics and DOS look of it all turned me away. Really hoping the new one captures all the exact same gameplay but with a new engine, delivers just what the game needed in a sequel. It will be a nice break from FPS games.
