Quoted from bigd1979:
the differences in play /feel between the 2 remakes and original at the show were very noticable
I agree with this absolutely.
I have played AFM many times and feel that the AFMr with its faster computer, enhanced sound, harder clearcoat and better lighting controls plays much better than any original I have ever played. It seems more lively and less broken in, softened or aged.
More modern perhaps, but in a good way.
I very much prefer the new game over the old one and am certain a lot of others do too.
To me it seems more fun! CGC has really done a great job on this, IMHO....
