This is one of the coolest games you’ll play this year. So far it has everything from the futuristics cityscapes to temple ruins glowing with beauty. I did not expect that and Vicarious Vision cleverly made gameplay as well as visual updates so attractive. The Trilogy sounds better than ever – thanks to the HD update for the soundtrack.
