Just took a gander, yeah, I won't be buying into it. They wanted to "keep things faithful", which I understand, but the HD remake is too faithful. For "gameplay reasons" they kept a lot of visual oddities, and the high-res of it doesn't matter when the details shown are just simple objects. The terrain tiling is also kept too static.

That said, apparently they did a ton of work, so for a truly nostalgic player (or the living, ancient pro scene), the cost is there and the quality makes sense ($15 isn't a huge deal if you're already in love).

Rationalizing the irrational since 2005.
