Awesome. Loved the original. I could probably go for some more Guacamelee.

I wish people would stop associating this game with metroid. I know there are overt references in the game but the exploration is so limited it may as well be completely linear. As a platformer/brawler it's actually pretty great but as a "metroidvania" it fails to meet expectations.

loved it. there are some really hard jumping puzzles in this. if you liked super meat boy and want a good story and combat system wrapped around hardcore jumping, have a go at it.

I loved Guacamelee, but between Sound Shapes, Flower, Flow, and Dead Nation I just want a game that I haven't already played.

I'm with you. I really liked Guacamelee, but very little of it is 'metroidvania'. That term seems to be getting heavily watered down recently.

This. You won't regret it.

Guacamole and fights for everybody!

Wait, this is a Metroid-vania type game?

Wow I thought it was a fighting game all this time... and now I'm very interested

certainly won't be paying for it again, however if its a crossbuy or plus freebie then I'll play up to where I quit last time on account of shitty mechanics not allowing for old age

@l4wd0g: They're coming. That said, for people who haven't played the games before it's pretty cool for them to get the chance to play a "definitive version" so to speak. I suppose it's too much to hope that it'll be retroactive cross-buy on PS4 like Flower was, but I wouldn't be mad even if it wasn't.

Is it going to be Cross-Buy? I'd totally play this again if my purchase of the PS3 version gets me the PS4 version free.

@graf1k: it was a fine game. I really enjoyed it. It would be nice if it was retroactive cross platform purchase. Soon I'll have Second Son, but man the rerelease games sure are coming in hot and heavy.

One of the best games of last year, hands down.

I think if they were going to make it cross purchase like Flower and Sound Shapes it wouldn't be a so-called "special edition".

Y'all can't handle the Rooster Uppercut.

I got this through PS Plus and definitely liked it (still stuck on that final boss) but I'm not sure it belongs on the same shelf as Metroid. The levels were all super linear with little exploration involved. There was always a straight path where the new upgrade I just found was used to overcome a few obstacles before the area boss. Rinse and repeat.

It lacked the sprawling interconnected level design. As a beat'em-up platformer it's fine (though even there, Valdis Story is also a better candidate).

i already own this on steam but i would probably buy it again. its my favorite lucha themed platformer.
