I think this review did a good job of reminding me why I'm always annoyed by companies re-making their old classics over and over again. It just seems that it's so rare when the game is really anything more than a nostaglia trip for retro gamers who might not have played it when it first came out or people who played it, loved it and want to have a "new" copy of it.

Essentially the exact same game, but with a couple of extra quests that don't seem to add much to the experience. I can see why you'd give it a 9, as CT is one of my personal favorite 16-bit RPGs and I can see me playing the original version again (for the 4th or so time) in 2009 or 2010 (whenever I have time). But I just can't personally get excited about a system coming out with ANOTHER remake of ANOTHER game I've seen before. With remakes, the DS is becoming the new GBA.

For PAL regions, at least, it'll be the game's first official release. We've had to live on roms or rare imports.

I can avoid death by not having a life.

I agree, Overdrive. You can probably pick up on a bit of my annoyance in the review, once I reach the "new features" section. At the same time, I appreciate the gesture, and I do think it would be cool if it actually reaches a new generation.

What's really exciting about all this is that now there's finally the possibility of a decent sequel.

Note to gamers: when someone shoots you in the face, they aren't "gay." They are "psychopathic."

Good review. I'd just like to comment on OD's opinion that the DS is becoming a remake factory.

For SE, this is the 2nd remake of a game for DS that came out in America before I can think of (along with FF4, which was a great remake. Felt like a new game). Fire Emblem and Final Fantasy III never came out in America before.
