Reskins of classic titles are both often very cool but a risky proposition in many regards when the original gameplay is left completely intact. I think Asha is a pretty great example of this problem, as it looks absolutely gorgeous without a doubt but it’s hard not to reflect on the inherent repetition in the level designs and general play and be a bit disappointed by comparison. If you happen to be a fan of the original title I’m sure there will be something special about seeing it realized in such a polished modern form, but for people like me with no such connection it just comes through as being a bit sloppy where play is concerned generally. Depending on where you fall on action platformers you may find everything to be perfectly fine here, but the higher expectations you apply to Asha unfortunately the more it will suffer from its dated overall feel.
