A blast from the past!
Please note that this review may contain spoilers from the Original game
Some key points that this Remaster offers:
- The original experience
- Remastered Visuals
- Wide range of Graphical Options
- Optimized Framerate
Back when the original was released it totally blew us away! It offered us a grand new experience. We got to play as one of the Horseman of the Apocalypse, in a brand new totally badass campaign.
The Warmastered Edition offers us the same great experience, just totally upgraded and improved for current-gen systems. The textures were reworked and doubled to offer us higher quality visuals.
All the cutscenes were re-rendered as well to ensure that they remain as interesting and captivating as they were when the original came out. We also have 4k video output support now, which totally puts things into a different perspective. There has been a lot of rendering improvements and reworks done to ensure high quality all around.
Shadow rending quality has also been updated along with post processing effects. A whole new list of features and settings were implemented for the game. We have FOV, Anti-Aliasing, Texture Filtering, and last, we have Windowed/ Full Screen Modes. To further sweeten the pot, we also have optimized framerates now.
MGR Gaming’s Conclusions:
Let us face it, when this one first came out, it gave us so much joy and fun, we simply couldn’t get enough of War and his righteous cause. We have the same great game with new and improved visuals.
The game looked great when it first came out, but now we get to experience it all over again with new and highly improved visuals. They didn’t just patch a thing here or there; they invested a great deal of time and effort to carefully rework and improve upon what was already great.
They gave Darskdiers a facelift so that it could offer old and new fans the same great experience it did when the original came out, just with new and improved visuals. There have been numerous improvements along with some brand new features and settings. The 4K support will make a great many gamers quite happy and then let’s not forget those awesome cutscenes that’s all been re-rendered in high quality.
This is how you improve a masterpiece!
