They made good with the PC version after that rough launch, runs buttery smooth now with everything maxed out.

I enjoyed the original on PC way-back-when, but I'll "wait&see" with the reboot. Hopefully they nail the fun-factor again.

@darthrevenx: Not sure what type of glue you're huffing, but they did a great job with reincarnation.

Only problem is small playerbase online, which will likely be solved going to consoles.

Looking forward to this one, the physics and hit boxes are top notch.

@Raidendude153: You mean OTHER than the fact that some of us our still waiting for our copies on the platform of choice (not everyone uses steam)....

@uncle5555: The console editions are predicated upon the steam version's success, so if you have any qualms while still anticipating a console version they'd be invalid- especially since carma has always been on PC.
