+A lot of great weapons and items usable in fights and puzzle/platforming solving
+60 FPS and remastered in HD with trophy support

-Annoying mini games like racing and flying fights
-Visuals look very outdated
-No additional or changed content (like other remasters)
-Game can be a chore when trying to keep up with new weapons or getting ammo via paying for it
-A lot of glitches occur such as going through the floor, some item boxes not appearing after dying, etc
-Cutscenes are not remastered but showcase in original format
