I’ve seen a lot of Unreal Engine 4 remakes of classic games in my time, and I feel like so many of them miss the mark. While it’s always awesome to see my favourite games with a fresh coat of paint and enhanced graphics, a lot of these Unreal Engine remakes feel like they’re missing something. They’re technically impressive, of course, but they’re lacking that little extra flair – that art direction or unique style that made the very game its remaking such a timeless hit.
Not this one. YouTuber and Nintendo superfan Yianni Papazis has rebuilt the legendary N64 classic The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time in Unreal Engine 4, and it is stunning. This is, without doubt, the most impressive Unreal Engine remake I have ever seen, one that stays true to the bright colours and strange characters of the original game while looking like Nintendo could have released it for Switch yesterday. It’s achingly beautiful, and I mean that most sincerely.
