Top Five HD Game Remakes to Play This Year
Remastered games have become quite a huge deal in the recent years, especially with the release of games like of Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Grand Theft Auto V and The Last of Us Remastered. It looks like 2015 will be another great year in terms of playing games from the long gone past as well.
So, what are the best remaster games arriving out this year that you could consider buying? Find out in our top five list below.
- Resident Evil HD Remaster
Resident Evil HD Remaster is a game that is based on Resident Evil and Resident Evil Remake. HD Remaster adds whole new control options, widescreen support and improved HD graphics to the survival horror classic.
Resident Evil for the GameCube, or sometimes, also known as REmake, was produced solely for the GC and released in 2002. As the “REmake” word implies, it is a remake of the original 1996 Resident Evil game. Along with updated graphics, REmake features other innovative enhancements and a few adjustments. It still holds up rather well, delivering plentiful scares .
- Halo: The Master Chief Collection
This game did not have the softest of launches, and its multiplayer was broken until a few weeks ago, but now, all is well with the adventures of series hero Master Chief. Halo has been a highlight of the Xbox consoles for a long time, and we think the Master Chief Collection shows us why.
For not only can you kill your own buddies online in glorious HD resolution, but Halo 3: ODST has been added to the set as well, making it a whole edition of the Halo series to date. Available exclusively on the Xbox One.
- Grim Fandango Remastered
Due to licensing matters, the only way to play Grim Fandango was through unofficial emulators. Luckily, Sony was able to pull up with Tim Schafer an alliance to obtain the rights to produce a remaster version for the PlayStation 4, Vita and PC. Aside from the expected graphical improvements (including an optional full-screen mode), the classic title will also be getting a fully choreographed and orchestrated soundtrack. So, one of the best adventure games of all time will be getting even better. Available on iOS, PC, PS4, and PS Vita.
- Tomb Raider Definitive Edition
The Definitive Edition of Tomb Raider is a lot like Lara Croft’s best adventure from last year, only with enhanced visuals and new features. One new tomb lets you stretch your puzzle-solving brain muscle, and a variety of outfits give you more stylistic options and flexibility. Have you ever fancied Lara to dress like a 1930s explorer? Now is your chance! None of these additions are all that exciting, so if you have already played through Tomb Raider on an older console, there’s little incentive to jump in again. Now is a good time as any to get re-acquainted with the adventures of Lara Croft. Available on the PS4 and Xbox One.
- Borderlands: The Handsome Collection
This set includes both Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and Borderlands 2 and every bit of downloadable content that came with both games. There are excellent visuals, split-screen play and whimsical humour, ensuring there’s more than enough in Borderlands: The Handsome Collection to keep you busy until the impending Borderlands 3 announcement. Available on the PS4 and Xbox One.
