Sega revives the 90s Mickey Mouse platformer Castle Of Illusion for the HD age. How does it compare to the beloved original? We find out...
When it comes to remakes of classic games from the 80s and 90s, I'm often reminded of a scene from Kurt Wimmer's 2002 film Equilibrium, in which Sean Bean quotes Keats at a glowering Christian Bale. "Tread softly," Bean says, "because you tread on my dreams."
For those of us who grew up on games like Sega's Castle Of Illusion as youngsters, the news of a HD remake can bring mixed feelings: excitement at the chance to revisit cherished memories with fresh eyes, and a hint of apprehension that those memories might be trodden on by clumsy programmers facing a tight shipping deadline.
