    Saturn Hands-On: Panzer Dragoon Remake

    Fans were surprised to learn that the original Panzer Dragoon would receive a remake in 2020. It started out with some hiccups, but updates smoothed out many of the issues and added new features. The result was a great reimagining of a Saturn classic. Read our full hands-on for all the details.

    Good review by Joseph C., but from his tone I wasn't expecting the 4/5 at the end. Seemed more of a critique of a bygone genre than much about the game. Though I guess I wouldn't call Panzer Dragoon Orta on Xbox a cheap game either ($50 shipped as of the writing of this post) with no re-release in sight. The original Panzer Dragoon for Windows on the other hand is found fairly cheaply online, though also as of the writing of this post US copies seem to have dried up. It can be easily run in WINE on Linux or on Windows for anyone interested who doesn't want to pay $75 for the Saturn version, plus it is slightly better graphically than its Saturn counterpart. But note as the writer of this piece has, Panzer Dragoon is included in Orta.

    The remake at $25 costs a little more than a copy for Windows. This is a wishlist game for me, as with the way Steam sales go these days it won't be too long before a Summer sale marks this down 75% to the $7.50 range. If it is a true to form remake of the original as Joseph C. says in his review, I'd peg its worth right about there.

    Thanks for the feedback. I should have clarified that I meant the digital version of Panzer Dragoon Orta which is a fair comparison since the remake is mostly available digitally unless you snagged the limited physical release. It is still impressive that a physical disc can be put in an Xbox Series X and it will be read though! From my perspective, I didn't need to say much about the game because it is more or less the same as the excellent original with a visual overhaul.

    I didn't even realize Panzer Dragoon Orta was available digitally! A must buy for $10 for anyone with an Xbox of any generation for sure.
