        but they're worse than the originals since they're based on the previous re-releases/ports which nerf the difficulty into the ground

        I should really finish this. Loved Shadowman as a kid and jumped on the remaster. Only thing I didn't like is the re-structuring keeps you from entering the prison early, which was a cool moment in the original, showing you what you're going to be up against.

      Odin Sphere's remaster was a pretty fricking huge improvement over the original. And it included the original game in its entirety right from the start menu, if for some reason you wanted to play the jank-ass grindfest that was the original PS2 version.

      Though it was mostly just the english version that was really bad but the remaster fixed something.
      However this shit is rare because remasters existing to actually fix something are nearly unheard of, especially since nowadays there's no excuse for rerelease over a simple patch.

      Only one I can think of is the Halo 2 remaster on the Master Chief Collection, stays religiously faithful to the original aesthetically, on top of allowing you to switch to the original at the press of a button. That and the new Dark Forces remaster which does all the same and is arguably the best way to play the game now.

          Don't bother, it's got the same AI upscaled/generated crap in it just like OP's example. Basically every remaster from now till the end of time will be cutting corners by doing that and not even Nightdive is immune to this.

      >the lighting is more realistic
      Maybe in some sense but the original is more visually pleasing and has art direction. I'll take artistic lighting over devs creating a system attempting to replicate something that is sort of realistic but makes things bland.

        Clearly the lighted up cave in the ps1 version is definitely the result of ps1 limitation, because you cant render a fully dark scene properly on ps1 hardware.
        However, the remaster devs could have taken some "liberties" to justify all that ps1 light. Just add some holes on the roof so that light finds its way in the cave, and voila! You got a faithful rendition of that cave

          Anonymous

          You don't know what you're talking about. They did add the ceiling holes to make it look more "realistic". The issue is the lack of contrast and specifically the dark areas in the remaster not being as dark as they were in the original. TR2 and 3 had a dynamic lighting system for flares so that's why they had those pitch black spots in the first place.

          homie what there's literally a completely dark room right behind that wall in op's pic that you need to use flares to find your way in, but i assume you have never and will never play these games with a shit post like that

    you only like the top because you grew up with it. bottom is objectively better in every way. if the devs had the computing power available to them in the 90s, they wouldn't have had just flat ugly lighting.

    God, this remaster was a disaster. Not only do you have the "modernized" lighting fricking with the original dev's intention of creating a strong contrast between brightly lit and pitch dark areas but the AI texture upscaling also makes everything in the game look like a smudgy mess.

      I'd know if was reversed because a technical graphical reversion back to PS1 tier graphics would make 0 sense, but even if that did happen, people would think that the PS1 graphics are shit even if there's something better about them because it would mean the image the original was created in wasn't improved upon in fact, I think people would be more baffled than anything.
