Santa Monica Studios, Reborn.
1 June 2019 | by themainstreamkidSee all my reviews

They had a very hard task at hand: Transforming a beloved character without destroying it. Revitalizing a franchise without leaving an ugly scar. Making it grow without having it fall apart.

Bringing something special to life is a very painful process and it's nice to see how much effort, and passion, and frustration it takes to craft a literal game-changer.
