    Will this look more or less identical to the original or waaaaay betterer? If not, is there any point to this?

    I've seen demo's of the development, it looks quite a bit better. Maybe a little to shinny but for free and as far as games go a smallish download I'd get it if I had an RTX capable card.

    Ha your weakness disgusts me...
    I'm gonna get it for my 1050ti and laugh at it as it will play it at some 5FPS or something.
