Regardless of whether or not you played the original, Voodoo Vince: Remastered is absolutely worth picking up. It’s got a low price tag, a decent campaign, and plenty of collectibles to keep anyone satisfied. If you’ve been waiting for Yooka-Laylee but can’t quite afford it right now, then this could definitely be the game to tide you over.
Voodoo Vince's action doesn't deviate much from the standard conventions of early 21st-century platformers, but its jazzy music and bizarre New Orleans look render it a memorable experience. With modernized textures, resolution, aspect ratio, and frame rate, this remastered version updates Vince for a new generation, and hopefully ensures he won't get buried like he was in his former incarnation as an Xbox exclusive.
There are lots of antiquated systems in Voodoo Vince – it is a product of its time. I could complain about how the developers should have taken the time to fix these issues, but I am a realist. This game is $14.99, and by all intents and purposes, likely would never have gotten a second chance without some love from a few big name executives at Microsoft. That said none of its issues deterred from my enjoyment. Vince is a great character, and for the price this game delivers exactly what I wanted from it: a chance to play it again without digging out my original Xbox.
