    Despite the silly nature of this announcement a lot of people thought this was a genuinely good 3D platformer, and they're taking effort to restore cut content and have it running on all platforms.

    I don't care too much about it but this was one of the more popular THQ games so I can see this as a good idea overall.

    Nah, SR3's shooting sucks. In 2 you have a decent amount of health but very slow regeneration. In 3 you have low health (without upgrades) and very high regeneration rate (especially after upgrades). 2 encourages avoiding damage, tactical retreats and allows use of food (which takes time, just not nearly as much as waiting for regeneration to kick in) in emergencies. 3 is just popamole since you need to use regeneration to stand a chance.

    3's upgrade system further hurts this. You can, and practically have to, upgrade weapon damage. Problem is this takes a lot of money and is tied to a specific weapon, even though missions keep shuffling your inventory around so you lose your upgraded gun for something you haven't improved. This means everything is a bullet sponge.

    One small thing that helped 2's combat a lot is that enemy AI didn't unflinchingly fire when you were right next to their ally, and didn't immediately acquire targets as soon as they saw them. This made it viable to run up to enemies and engage them in melee.
