Can also get both HD versions without the originals for £5.49. Which is what i went for.

Meh, if your gonna get the 2 HD versions for £5.49 you may aswell fork out the extra 2 quid for the classic versions. After all, they ARE classics.

I might get them but its 10 euros and i already have First encounter. Might try the Members Market for a GBP gift...

Why? HD is the same only better looking ain't it? So what's the point? Plus i've got at least the first one stuffed away in a box some where im sure! :D

My finger is hovering over the buy HD version, I've got the originals on DVD as well...what's the advantage of the classics, what was removed?

They've got few of quite a few of the secrets and it just seems less....fun to me. Several of the gravity things have gone as well. I still like the graphics of the originals and the new ones don't look that good. I've only played the first HD but I much prefer the original.

I don't think the remakes have local co-op either.

Thanks for the reply, the secrets and gravity doesn't bother me that much but losing local co-op would be a big no-no, me and the missus had loads of fun playing through the second encounter on co-op...is that definite it isn't in there?

Didn't realise I had uninstalled it :(

Internet seems to say no split screen though.

Thanks for checking, I think we were talking across purposes though, I was thinking it didn't have co-op at all. When I co-oped with the missus we did it across a LAN, of course doing it over the net will be just the same (probably easier to setup as well!) so that shouldn't be an issue. :)

You sure, it says Co-op with up to 16 players for the HD version of SS1 ?

If can you, I'll be getting two copies

Looking at the specs, both SS1 and SS2 say that have 16 player co-op...good enough for me *ordering* :D

SS2 definitely has online co-op, it even allows you to create your own server. :D

SS1 is still downloading but I'm sure that will be the same.

Right I'm off to bed happy! :)

Just stayed playing the first encounter HD. It's not started how I remember it. I could have sworn the original game started by an oasis in the desert.

Or am I imagining this?
