D/Gen­er­a­tion HD

XBox: The Official Magazine - - REVIEW -

Hail­ing from the early 1990s, D/Gen­er­a­tion HD is from a time when en­e­mies looked like flu­o­res­cent Liquorice All­sorts and the clos­est thing they had to AI was the abil­ity to bounce off the wall they’d just blun­dered into.

The graph­ics have been spruced up at the ex­pense of that old retro charm, but the game­play re­mains iden­ti­cal. Shoot your way through a build­ing filled with rogue sci­ence ex­per­i­ments, res­cu­ing peo­ple as you go. With lim­ited lives, and a sin­gle touch from the build­ing’s ab­stract denizens mean­ing in­stant death, a de­mor­al­is­ing trip back to the start of the game is al­ways just around the next cor­ner. It’s the same price as the en­tire Rare Re­play col­lec­tion, it comes with no ex­tras, and it’s sorely miss­ing an op­tion to ditch the ugly up­dated vi­su­als in favour of the orig­i­nal Amiga look. Not a great value pack­age, re­ally.
