Lugaru vs Overgrowth Lugaru Campaign
I have just finished the Overgrowth Lugaru Campain and was wondering if anyone here has also played it.

If anyone else has, could you tell me which one is better overall? I heard that there were some features in the original that are not in the "remake".

Thanks

WARNING: THERE WILL BE SPOILERS FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NOT COMPLETED THE LUGARU CAMPAIGN

I personally prefer the original version of the Lugaru campaign, since Overgrowth's gameplay is not yet finished, and there were a lot of unnecessary changes to the story that leave out and severely alter some important details.

  1. There's a lot of moves that are just plain left out. There's no horizontal Leg Cannon (rabbit kick) in Overgrowth, no Spinecrusher (a killing suplex move), no Wall Kick, no throat stab, no crouch stab, and possibly the most baffling, no Animal Run (which was a four-legged run that could tackle opponents). Dodging and knife-throwing have also been made far less effective. The lack of attack variety actually limits the gameplay an awful lot.
  2. The ending was severely wrecked: the original Lugaru ends with Turner deciding that he isn't fit to be King, and leaving the Rocky Hall to find a new purpose in life, while Overgrowth's version ends very abruptly with Turner asking what cats are, just to set up Overgrowth's campaign... it's very awkward compared to the original and provides no closure.
  3. The characters were altered, too. Willow was originally a dude named Jack, and had different motivations. Skipper didn't die in the original campaign, and was actually an unwitting pawn in Jack's scheme, and the Alpha Wolf had a different personality altogether.
  4. Turner was significantly less bloodthirsty towards the Wolves in the original Lugaru, and he also staged a bloodless coup to take control from Hickory instead of challenging him to a duel, though he had to kill him later anyway.
  5. Also, Aspen had stolen Turner's personal armor in the original Lugaru. Overgrowth just left that out completely.
