Default Re: I think Sin II is a remake of Sin, this is good!

Beyond your late assessment of the original and your hugely insightful comments on Ep#1, how would you have re-imagined SiN to be a higher quality FPS experience?

EDIT: More sense to place thoughts here.

What Ritual has not shown they are capable of, at least not yet, is simultaneously creating an imaginative and original IP, with an interesting fictional universe backstory & combining it with a compelling narrative that unfolds through the game. They have done one OR the other so far, either using someone else's franchise and creating a good story, or setting up a good backdrop but giving it a trite story. I wonder how much a slap in the face they got seeing a fan create a series of machinimas that had a better telling than their game.

Until they pull off a Half-Life, Deus Ex, Thief, or System Shock level of title I don't see why anyone would expect anything more than a good action game from them.
