What many people considered a killer app for the PlayStation arrives on the Saturn. The graphics and animation are top-notch. Two things prevent it from scoring extremely high: First, it's being released in the shadow of its sequel. Toshinden 2 has more characters and special moves and reminds you that it's an improvement over the original. Second, and I hate to say this, but some of the moves were a bit hard to pull off on the U.S. and Japanese controllers. If you can't play Toshinden 2, then by all means, get this one. Remix is a sharp 3-D fighter that is flashier than the likes of Virtua Fighter 2 or Tekken.
I was very disappointed in Toshindert Remix for the Saturn, First, let me rip on the voices of the characters. They're far too overdone to even be funny. Sofia's voice is almost as deep as Rungo's! t know she's a Strong fighter, but come only Plus, during the fights they're all screaming and grunting in loud, exaggerated ways. More important than this, there really weren't any major enhancements. Sure, some cinemas and a Boss, but that's not enough to make me happy. The only thing that I like a lot was the art of the characters on the Selection Screen. Thaws rot worth $60 though. The drawback to this new art is that when you select your character, there are no multi-colored ones to choose. This is a good one to rent
With a name like Toshinden on the cover, I was expecting a lot more than what was found within the title. The gameplay is limited, and many of the moves are excessively difficult to get off when you needed them. Although many may like the slight differences in the play, I found this one to be nothing more than a partial attempt at a title that has the name to sell a lot of copies even before the game is turned on. If the graphics would have at least been improved, I may have passed this one on the scale. Players who loved the original may get into this one, but I will be waiting for the second version. Let's put remixes lo rest forever.
On the plus side, the Story Mode is a great addition I think any Toshinden fans will want to play through. The other new feature (the extra character) really didn't impress me. In fact, I find it hard to see why anyone would want to play Remix when they could go out and get Toshinden 2 (very soon). This game is average but the graphics and especially the sounds aren't special. Sure there are some combo and playability differences from the PS version but beyond that there really is no big overhaul in graphics or dynamics. Unfortunately the timing of this game really hurts it. to is a decent fighting game but with its sequel out I just didn't get into it.
