Games that should be remastered

Tired of the crappy sequels to once-great titles? Ever wish you could just have that old game back with a DirectX 9 or DirectX 10 update? Bit Tech takes a look at some of the games they wish could just get a new coat of paint rather than being messed with under the hood:

"Deus Ex was followed by a sequel in 2003, but that met with some pretty bad reception. Much like Thief: Deadly Shadows it was again a partnership between Ion Storm and Eidos, trying to release a blockbuster title for the XBox more than the PC. DX2 suffered from very similar problems to TF, as well - poor interface design, long loads that were unnecessary for a PC, and vastly underpowered graphics. The community tried to save the game with its own updated texture packs, but there was little to fix such a weak game. Ion Storm even added insult to injury by officially denouncing the packs, in effort to stand behind what it hoped would be an XBox fan base that never materialized. "
