I can't for the life of me imagine why the team wants to resurrect this title, but I'm sure glad they are.  I suspect this title might be rated M for hot and spicy racism.

As much as I was in the FPS's back then when this came about I didn't even bother playing through the entire Shareware version of it. The crude humor didn't work and there was nothing appealing about the mismash enviroments.

I don't recall the game getting good reviews and honestly the thing I remember most about it is the negative press with the racial slur it used. So why another company would want to dig that license up is beyond me.

Here's a few FPS licenses from that era that would probably get some interest if they made a game off it: Heretic/Hexen, Redneck Rampage, Blood, Witchaven, and hell even Corridor 7.

Damn....I'd KILL for a new Hexen.  That'd be awesome!
