Almost like an entirely new game? Many game series have undergone facelifts and transformations to become something more modern. Whether it's turning a survival horror franchise into a more action oriented 3rd person shooter like Capcom did to Resident Evil, or having a sexy English Tomb Raider abandoning her guns for some quick hand to hand combat in certain situations. There's also the more obvious revamps that are expected; Ninja Gaiden for example. As it a modern NG release sporting 8 bit graphics and side scrolling action would have any place on the market aside from the XBL Arcade. For me I'd have to say Resident Evil. It's changed so drastically it barely feels like the same game...But then...Once the story starts rolling you're back in familiar territory again. I don't yet know what to make of the new playstyle. It felt fresh and exciting in RE4 but made me slightly yearn for the familiar. Now, with RE5 just around the corner the freshness introduced is starting to turn into disappointment at the loss of a series that was genuinely creepy and had me on the edge of my seat expecting to jump back at any moment. What series in your eyes though has become so different from the original it doesn't even feel like the same game? It can be in a positive or negative. I want to hear your thoughts. Are you thinking of a game I didn't mention? Feel free to talk about that one.
