That being said, I think it still stands the test of time. It can be played as a shooter, or an rpg, or a stealth game. It really does do a good job of combining the genres for its time. The new game apparently polishes some of the issues in the first game like the shoddy AI and poor voice acting.
The best thing that I love about the original is that it rewarded exploration. Heck, you get experience points for just finding a new area off the beaten path. And usually those hidden paths actually gave you something rewarding as opposed to other games.
