While I assumed this might be a bit GTA-like, it's actually a linear story game that just happens to be in a city with cars you can steal. I didn't have high hopes for it given that most "remasters" are just new textures and milking the brand name for more money. However, this is effectively a new game; new voice cast, slightly different story, overhauled mechanics - they've really done a great job. While it still feels like a 2010s chest-high-wall shooter and it's rough around the edges, the story and the voice acting carry it and make a great experience worth playing. That being said, it's only 10 hours long - so wait for a sale.
