Fans of the Playstation 2 version will appreciate the slight improvement in graphics and the new controls. The lack of any additional content, however, may not justify a purchase for some.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers should be able to play this game with the help of subtitles. However, not being able to hear noises that indicate the presence of enemies off screen might make it more difficult.
