Porting classic games has become something of an epidemic during this console generation. What’s worse is that, more often than not, these ports act as a reminder of just how far graphics in video games have come across the years. Rare exceptions to this rule do occur and when treated with the proper care, some games shine on the newer platforms. If I hadn’t played it back on PS2, and you told me that Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir was a brand new game I would likely believe you. The upgrades they’ve made to this classic action RPG were smart and the gorgeous graphics, a trademark of Vanillaware, looks as good today as they did back in 2007.
A quick one today, this is the shelf I set up today. It gives me quick access to all of my legacy game consoles, and looks pretty darn good while doing it! Hope all of you had a good Wednesday and keep checking back for more Smashed Rook goodness.
