Sound Ideas

Detailed Description:

This is really a 2-part suggestion with sound being the basis of both, so forgive me. The first is that I hope the levels have rich, high-quality atmospheric environmental sound. In gameplay footage released so far this does actually seem to be the case, and that’s really cool because it really makes a level come to life and can provide a more chilled-out experience than listening with music turned on. My second point focuses more on the actual sound effects. In Spyro Reignited, players could toggle a setting which swapped the new remixed soundtrack with the original PS1 music. My suggestion for this remaster is that players could choose to switch to the original sound effects from the first 2 games rather than the newer, more realistic ones. For me, hearing certain sounds from those games, for instance the Gap sound effect in Pro Skater 1, is an instant nostalgia trigger, and some of that could be lost if limited to new effects. 3. Atmospheric environmental sound played a small part in Pro Skater 1 and 2, but didn’t really come into its own until Pro Skater 3 which had a discrete “Ambience” setting. I feel that this would be a worthwile addition to the original 2 games, since it helps to give a more modern, polished feel to the game.

Does this suggestion exist in THPS1/THPS2?
If no: please provide reasoning on why it should exist in the THPS 1+2 game.

The original games did, of course, feature the original sound effects.
