Some more screenshots (taken from the steam forum). While a team like Bluepoint given a huge budget could do better, I think the small Panzer team did a pretty good job on this remake. You really get a feel for the world.
The game plays just fine after patches. Looking forward to Zwei, which is really the golden boy of the franchise. For the XB1X owners, I also can't recommend the 4k-upscaled Panzer Dragoon Orta, which is part of Microsoft's BC program. First game I bought when I got my 1X lol
Okay, so I just played and finished the game on Switch. Game plays fine, controls fine in classic mode and looks decent enough. I had only played Orta until now so I'm glad to have experienced the first game now.
Though I have to admit, while I can understand it was a very impressive game in the mid 90's, it isn't a particularly great game today. Orta truly is better in every single way. Better level design, much more variety. Looking forward to Zwei to see what that game brings to the table!
