Internet News   Internet News : Amiga Classic Back in the Spotlight: Cannon Fodder
   posted by AF on 30-Aug-2006 20:53:29 (1548 reads)
Codemasters have announced that a new version of Cannon Fodder is set for the PSP. The full story and screenshots can be found on IGN Entertainment.

IGN Entertainment


Reaction from Amiga gamers has been mixed. In Amiga Addicts Sanctuary, one gamer made the comment that “it looks great, it is still a 2D game but with 3D sprites... I really like it!” while Keith Hollis said, “I’m not against 3D remakes just because they’re 3D, but that doesn’t really look anything like Cannon Fodder”. Avanze probably summed up the feelings of many gamers when he said, “Bummer, it looks crap. Why try to fix something that is not broken?”

So, what do you think of the new 3D version of Cannon Fodder?

I don't think the 3D look benefits the game. Mind you, it could, but I don't think it does.

Personally I'm far more interested in these:
Last Ninja (NDS, PSP) - April 07
California Games (NDS, PSP) - May 07
Impossible Mission (NDS, PSP) - TBA
Leaderboard (Wii) - November 06

Shame its on PSP... Cannon Fodder is just perfect for the stylus of the DS...

Looks worse than the original, I don't think that 3D graphics are doing anything for the game, instead blocky polygons lose the lovely detailed pixel artwork of the original.

In 2D overhead view, but with the PSP's graphical power, the graphics could have been great, and the core gameplay kept.

3D will allow for some things though, real hills, objects that properly block bullets or not, being able to fire through trees to an enemy.
