I actually thought the character-specific cutscenes were a brilliant decision. Ever heard the same story told by two different people who were both there? Ever noticed how each version is slightly altered to make the storyteller seem more prominent than the role they actually played? But yes, a retooling of the original game is definitely in order. The gameplay and physics were basically perfect in that game, the only major problems were hardware limitations that have since been blown away. Oh and the lighting portion of the game engine could use a complete re-write. Most of the major technical problems were fixed for sa2... but alot of the open-ended feeling of the controls and levels was lost in the transition.
