Why They Rock

  1. They are renowned for their high quality remasters, with the remasters of the Uncharted trilogy and Gravity Rush being among their best work.
  2. Their ports of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale and Titanfall were just as good as the original versions of those games.
  3. Similar to how Vicarious Visions remade the Crash Bandicoot trilogy, Bluepoint remade Shadow of the Colossus completely from the ground up while retaining the familiar gameplay elements.
  4. They are capable of working on two different projects simultaneously without compromising quality.
    • They remastered Flower while they worked on the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall.
    • They also remastered Gravity Rush during Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection's development.
  5. Their remaster of Flower actually improved the game significantly by using 1080p visuals and a frame rate of 60fps.
  6. Their remaster of the Uncharted trilogy was well received for the technical improvements they had made and inclusion of new features, showing that they are willing to go beyond simply up-scaling existing games.
  7. Their original game, Blast Factor (which came out in 2006) took advantage of the PS3's processing power to run in full 1080p resolution with smooth gameplay, showing the PS3's graphical capabilities at the time.

The Only Bad Quality

  1. They only have one original game, and it received mixed reviews at best, and was quickly forgotten.
