Underneath the beauty, there’s a morality tale that slowly unfolds amid the sometimes overblown spectacle. An element that was present in the original but feels more prevalent and potent here. The ending backs an even bigger gut punch this time around.
In the end there is inherent value in a release like this, particularly from a preservation standpoint. And truth be told, playing through each campaign on the easier difficulty settings allows for the enjoyment of often cheesy but ultimately engaging b-movie stories being told to take centre-stage.
