The Gamecube version had notable changes such as its nearly photo-realistic environments, which are pre-rendered. The remake features all-new graphics and sound, and incorporates gameplay elements such as the use of body language and the 180-degree turn. It also introduced a new running style and several new areas and rooms were also added to the game. The original live-action FMV segments were redone in CG, with the voice acting done by a different cast. The script was rewritten and improved translation. Gameplay mechanics are largely the same with most of the puzzles changed and features ability by the player to use a defensive weapon seized by an enemy. The Gamecube remake also features many unlockable game modes, secrets, and various endings not found in the original.
