No interest in the remake myself but it is a superb game and can only benefit if it is given a proper overhaul. Bar a few long sections I feel it is the best in the series. Levels feel pretty varied and the music is amazing.

So now they have gotten sick of making smiler games. They are now remaking the first, then the second, then the third (on the new XBox)

I'm really interested in this remake, Perfect Dark has proven that classic FPS when revisited correctly can be a fun and compelling way to play through that long forgotten but still worthwhile adventure.

I'm totally psyched for it's release. My favourite game of all time remastered in HD, couldn't ask for more.

I picked Yes, Not because I loved the original one, but because I missed it the first time round and think it is a game I should really experience.

Not bothered really. If it was a semi rare game like the Ico set thats coming out then maybe yes. Halos a good game and ive got alot of fond memories of it but theres too much other good stuff coming out in the run up to Christmas. Also £34.99 isn't budget price.

Its the only one i've not played so yea im looking forward to it.

I would rather play a remastered version than the original disc on the 360's not quite 100% emulation.

I'll play it because the original is one of the finest games created.

If they add some of the weapons and features from the newer ones i might be interested.
If its nothing more than a graphical update, ill probably be okay with just playing the original.

It wouldn't be the first one if they added stuff from the sequels

It would be some weird fusion

Well in that case ill be happy to just play the Xbox one. It still looks pretty nice by todays standards so i dont even see a HD update as a big selling point for me.
