Wow I didn't expect to see this game again. I have beaten the original Amiga 500 title numerous times. I even have a playthrough on my YT channel.

The music and graphics were epic for the time. I believe it was 1989.

The original game was praised for it's graphics and nothing else. Can't see any reason why would anyone remake it.

this looks promising but the charachter desigen doesn't look solid enough to me like Kratos.

I'm very sceptical. Just the mediocre cgi vid shown. I do remember the original series and I have a hard time seeing why this should be remade at all. It was a graphically impressive game at the time it was made and it was a decent game but I can't see how it would be interesting to play it today in some so-so HD remake.

If they must remake it then I suggest the third game in the series for use on tablets.

Nevertheless It wil be interesting to see the final result although I've been disappointed by all remakes of old Amiga classics so far.

Music needs to be as good as it was on the Amiga. Doesn't sound like that's the case.

Also, that looked remarkably like a PS1 FMV.

Might be interesting if there's not much repititiveness.
