Summary: I played the original a lot. It was fun, had some interesting play mechanics, a certain charm to the graphics, odd sound effects, and great music. The "Deluxe" edition is missing most of these things. This game only has passing similarity to the original in the most important department, and that is feel. It just doesn't feel fun to play. The original is still more fun, even though it is nearing 30 years of age.
Summary: I am huge fan of the original and the short of it is that the original is fun and this game is not. This game is really a puzzle stealth action game. You can play it like an action game like the original Elevator Action but you won't get the gold stars and it will be too easy to be fun. It really wants you play it like a stealth action game however the mechanics are terrible.
Summary: First things first, many remakes to older games and retro styled HD games usually will be enjoyed by fans of the orginal games. Like, Megaman 9, Bubble Bobble, and Bomberman to name a few. If you are in any way a fan of the orginal Elevator Action, you will most likely find this game to be really fun and a great upgrade from the previous game. I never played the Saturn one, but this is not hing like that one.
