However, there's far more memorable and interesting endless runners out there, a lot of them by the same developer no less. If you miss the 'tude mascot characters of the early 90s and want something that's at least decent, this may be fun for a while. Otherwise, nothing of note would be lost if you didn't play the latest in Bubsy's exploits.
The courtroom cases themselves could be a tad more interesting, but the game's overall narrative is strong and engaging. We know the story of the French Revolution, but we can't necessarily imagine what it was like living in those tumultuous times. We the Revolution is a fascinating look into the moral struggles of the era, where things weren't as clear-cut as they seemed.
Both Assassin's Creed III and Liberation are titles worth investing time into. They contain tons of content that's fun, and the time setting makes for some interesting scenarios, but the technical issues for this Switch port aren't worth the trade off for being able to play on the go. These issues aren't bad enough that the Remastered editions on the Switch are an unplayable mess, but it's still a mess regardless.
Despite shortcomings, the remake of the first Resident Evil title is a tense, exciting romp through a mansion that has a ton of creepy secrets. There are definite signs of aging here that make me appreciate current day luxuries, but once I got past those I enjoyed Resident Evil's puzzles, scares and horrors.
Full Package should be retitled "Flawed Package" because there are a few issues here that are noticeable enough to hamper the experience. It's prone to substantial bugs to the point where it freezes, and there's just a dated feel to it, both in the humor and the visuals. However, while there are noticeable issues, the core sandbox gameplay is strong, and if there is one thing I can say about Saints Row: The Third, it's definitely not boring.
There's plenty of levels to choose from and the customizable options give the experience a nice, personal touch. Moving with the controls never felt quite perfect, but doesn't render the game unplayable. Shred! 2 is simply a pretty solid, fun game that has its moments once you look past its issues.
That's not to say people should avoid this re-release, because despite the problems there's a strong game here that's worth playing and experiencing. FFIX is reminiscent of a simpler time, boasting a strong narrative and quality of life features that make it easy to get into. I just wish it had a better presentation, one that a game of this quality truly deserves.
Despite the issues I have with it, Grim Fandango is a fantastic adventure game full of the snappy, witty charm that LucasArts is known for, complete with a stellar atmosphere and great cast of characters. It could have used a couple of enhancements, but Grim Fandango Remastered is a fine port of Manny Calavera's escapades.
The Sega Ages version of Phantasy Star continues to prove that the Ages polish to old classics works wonderfully and should be emulated by other developers. The parts that made Phantasy Star feel archaic are gone, and while it still shows its age this version of the title is the strongest you'll come across anywhere.
At its core, Windjammers is an addictive, colorful, and vibrant experience that is worth investing time and effort in. The online could be better, but this is a great, faithful port of the 1994 original updated to today's standards. It's definitely worth a look for both local multiplayer and retro enthusiasts alike.
