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.
