4.0 out of 5 stars Great for a fan of the series., November 7, 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Zone of the Enders HD Collection Limited Edition - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
I should start by saying I've only recently purchased a PS3 and this is the first 'HD Collection' I've bought.

The packaging was great, the big shiny box was nice. Not much else to say there.

The Remixed OST was underwhelming, various EDM remixes.. an original sound track would have been nice here, maybe a digital copy of these remixes.

The artbook is where your extra $20 is going. I've been a fan of the ZOE series since the first one was released, especially love it for the artistic style of all of the orbital frames. The artbook features pictures and concept art of all of the major machines and people. The cover has no typography and has the same brilliant gold sheen as the packaging.

The launcher for the two games is great. I hadn't seen the anime introduction and the game selection is just simple, tasteful menus featuring concept art of Jehuty and Anubis.

As for the games themselves the original does show it's age, I still think it's very worthy of a play through if you've never played it on the PS2. The cut scenes are all just scaled and are blurry although I can appreciate keeping the original so I overlook that. In game graphics in both games don't see much, if any improvement other than now being widescreen. 2nd Runner still experiences lag during large fights.

TL;DR: Fan of the series? Want the artbook? Worth it. New to the series? Not a collector? Fan of anime robots? Regular Edition is well worth it, they're two great games.

MGR:R Demo: Both games and the demo are all on the same disc. The demo shows up on the xmb as a game and you must install it prior to playing. I really liked the demo, it was fun and I liked the presentation. Raiden's a bit buff but whatever. I also did NOT experience any reboots or other glitches while playing the demo as I've seen a lot of people reporting. (500GB Super Slim)
