In Response To: Original-to-XBLA sprite comparisons *LINK* (General-RADIX)

: Misewell cross-post this here. I didn't remember seeing any other
: side-by-side comparisons of Marathon 2's original sprites with the XBLA
: port's, so once Hopper pointed me towards Aorta, I put these together.

: Most of the changes are pretty minor, and then you get to the Security
: Officer. There's been jabs at his "Marine tights", but at least
: he had chest armour (note: I'm actually fine with his XBLA redesign, just
: confused that everyone else remained mostly the same).

I think the original S'pht 'Kr actually looks better than the XBLA one. I mean, all the XBLA ones look terrible when you actually see them in the game, but you can actually see the s'pht under the dome! I never really noticed that, and they went and made the dome opaque! That is the worst offense in this. With those extra pixels, they could have given that s'pht more, well, definition, but they chose to be lazy on that front. What a missed opportunity.
