First (blurry) shots of Jetpac Refuelled

Spanish website, Meristation, has posted the first shots of the upcoming Jetpac Refuelled for Xbox Live Arcade. For those with short memories, Jetpac Refuelled was recently uncovered as Rare's top-secret XBLA game. A remake of the original Jetpac, Refuelled looks to be much the same, with the addition of updated graphics, of course. Unfortunately, the shots posted are pretty blurry, but they still give us a good idea of what to expect from the game. Anyone have fond memories of the original? How many MS points would you spend on the XBLA version?

1. It doesn't matter that this game is announced it too will take a year to be released even when its finished.

2. this game is boring. I would pay 0 ms points for it. I would however pay 1200 ms points for jetpac (withadded co-op of course)

3. I have never played dis one before so using simply superficial judgment - it doesnt look to enticing

4. I'd pay 1200 for CastleVania (Although really 1000 would be overpriced..hell, im a SOTN geek, what can I say?), but Jetpac no more than 400 if not much less. I played the Root Beer Tapper demo and god, it's terrible. If they can get away by charging 5 bucks for that, then help us all.

5. Never even heard of this game before hand. I can tell you, everyone is more focused on Castlevania:SotN and Ikaruga coming to XBox Live than this game. Another boring game from Rare, yay!

6. I wasn't really close to being born when Jetpac was released, so I have no memories of it. However, it being a Rare game, although this one seems disappointing unlike their other games, I will buy it. And I think it was already confirmed to be 800 MS points.

7. 0 ms points. I'd rather have Solar Jetman.

8. Zero points- heck- even if the game was free I'd skip it. I'm still miffed with Rare over Perfect Dark Zero.

9. Sign of the times I'm afraid. Too many people which so little imagination that they have to recode games that were never any good in the first place just because it's been the latest 'e-fashion' for a few years.

Didn't play it 25 years ago, I doubt I'll play it tomorrow.
