This turns a game that I had thought was mediocre into something genuinely fun. I wouldn’t have thought that a graphical overhaul could affect the gameplay so much, but it does. Everything seems much more clear and intuitive now. The health increase is definitely appreciated as well. As a result what was a prior exercise in frustration and confusion is now a fun time running around Nakatomi Plaza offing baddies. The atmosphere is now spot on too. Highly recommended, don’t play Die Hard without this patch.
