Is Ecco The Dolphin getting a new game?

Postby TehSlenderMan » 24 Sep 2012, 05:30

OH LORD, PLEASE PLEASE NO! Ecco The Dolphin is WITHOUT a DOUBT THE HARDEST GAME I have EVER played in my ENTIRE life. Sure, we can say this about many games, but Ecco is no joking matter. I have never had so much trouble with a game (Still haven't beaten it)

It wasn't that hard.

The story got a bit weird by the time the aliens were involved, other than that, great game. Would love to see a remake, but would like to see it on next gen hardware.

oh hell yeah, would love to see a new ecco on current tech, could be sooo good. also wouldn't mind a road rash remake, as long as they don't try n make the bikes all uber-realistic and stick to the classic arcade style gameplay it'd be ace.

Every Ecco is deadly hard, the Dreamcast one is stupendously hard. If you beat it congrats, I did myself but only after a very long time trying and a game guide. Did you finish it?

I concur with the Ecco remark. Would look and sound amazing, as the PS2/DC version did in it's day.

If you look on YouTube, there's a Road Rash pre-vis that someone did, and it's like Burnout in concept, but it looks like how I expect Road Rash to come back as (if it ever does). It's fantastic.

Think I was about 12 when I played the original game. Not only was it hard, but it really scared me. Guess I should give it another go now I'm in my late twenties and work out why I didn't like to play it. Maybe it was the likely chance of running out of air. *shrug*

I didn't find the Megadrive Ecco games scary- and I managed to get near the end of the game when I was a kid- but the Dreamcast Ecco terrified me :lol: the whole Running out of air thing, the lack of visibility, the big open areas that made you feel really vulnerable... And sharks. Lots and lots of sharks,

You are aware that no one is forcing you buy the new Ecco, which as of writing doesn't exist yet.

So I ask you why does it matter should a new Ecco game get made? When there are other people who might want to play it.
