Visuals looks good, but shame there's no free-aim.

Dunno why they couldn't make it the full trilogy either.

They could make it the trilogy but then how would they charge you $40x3 :)

There is free aim of course.

Retro, now we know what they've been working on.

What? That makes no sense... There was no need to prove it, Switch has games... MP4 is a game. =S
