This is a prime example of a Jimmy ass game. Personally I have no interest this. I think fanboys of the original might be a little ticked off about this game.
For the record I know very little about the original game. I know it was super violent and the guy wore a hockey mask. I don't know if the mask was alive and the main character was just the host to some demon or monster. Similar to Peter Parker and the Venom suit. But this game looks horrible right now - look for a FNJimmy golden video review for sure.
