    Looks absolutely awful. Worst cash grab attempt I've seen in ages and that's quite something in this industry

    Should be a $20 game, it definitively looks low-budget.

    Wait, what? Why did they make remake of this one? It's perfectly playable and looks great even today thanks to art direction. There are different games from UbiSoft era that could use remake, not this one.

    Or is it same thing as with cover versions of old songs in ads? That you hear them and you are instantly reminded of great tune butchered by some clueless idiot who thought he should make it "soulful and better."

    Yeah, no. Farah was more hot in original anyways.

    Prince successfully used the Dagger of Time to rewind himself back to PS3/360 era.

    I think this might be a self fulfilling prophecy made on purpose to be bad and half-assed so after the release they can point at all the reviews shitting on the game and go "well, if you guys say so" and bury PoP for good.

    These fuckers scheme. Just like during the entire 00's they'd shit terrible unoptimized dumbed down ports one after another on PC shelves and if PC gamers felt suspicious about its quality and decide to pirate first to check, they'd go full "look, PC gamers can't stop pirating our games! PC gaming is dying, guys! PC gaming is dying!"

    Ah, what a time it was! Yet I've knew no person who didn't pirate console games. Even my psp was pirate bay (take that ubisoft, pop2 on my psp, for free!).
    In my defense, there was no way (without brainfucking myself to hell) to get games for console in my place.

    Reminds me of a move Jap devs used to pull in the early OOs "HEY YOU WANT US TO MAKE A SEQUEL TO/BRING OVER PORT OF A GOOD GAME IN THIS SERIES?? THEN BUY THIS SHITTY PORT OF AN OLD SHITTY GAME IN THE SERIES FIRST!"

    I'm almost sure they are using the same animations of the original game.

    As I recall, the only thing that's needed for the current version available on Steam is subtitles and some better sound mixing so the voices come across more clearly.
    This remake seems unnecessary and not of very high quality.

    It blows my mind that someone would think this, and other 'texture-less dudes' make for better sand creatures than this...

    Go take a look at the old animations. They are actually better than most modern games. They are most certainly not using the old animations. This is incompetency at it's peak.

    Hey bro why so mad?
    You're the one that has been asking for a revival of the series, even if for a shitty nu-installment like you said.
    You should be nothing but glad for these news, your wishes came true.

    :troll:

    I hope you've learned your lesson, and don't go cursing us again you bitch.

    Has ubisoft india studio done any games before? This strikes me as possibly being some kind of practice run for a new studio.

    Looking at comparisons the remake removed the piss filter, so likely it will be the definitive version of the game.

    Apparentely they've worked on some Just Dance titles, mobile titles and did QA tests for many Ubisoft titles since they been acquired in 2008.

    All that effort - which they could have rather used to do a new game...

    They just admitted to being incompetent.
