IGN reviewers are so predictable that they gave this game a 7/10 and I know it has more to do with the series being a cult classic. Like you know exactly how they're going to score certain games before they hit the market based on its popularity and not so much what unique or genuinely enjoyable qualities that it has to offer relative to other games. A remake of a game from an era of gaming when games were still honest and unapologetic and allowed the player to problem solve levels.
I finished this last month and really enjoyed it. Except for the final boss - was on the verge of just rage quitting and deleting it but, through the power of what I imagine would be our lord, managed to finish it.
