    Shadow of Memories (PS2), has you try to solve your own murder, at some points you actually have to let yourself be killed in order to progress the story, so you learn how not to let yourself be killed. You also travel in time, thanks to a man made homonculus. If I remember, you get shot, hung, poisoned, hit & run, & stabbed, all by trying to solve your own murder.

    Surprised EVE Online didn't make the list.

    I liked the story telling in Sands of Time, very entertaining.

    Does leisure suit larry's blender clone situation count? If not fine, but it's still really out there

    Herc's Adventures on PS1: You die, you go to Hades. You have to fight your way back out to "the light". Each time you die, you are thrown further back into the depths, or there are more enemies. It was pretty cool because in the end, you had to go into Hades while alive and fight your way down for the last level, so I always thought that was a neat mechanic that really put some energy into the last level.

    If they do it in a unique way, it can work.

    How is Rachel in this list? She got infected with the T-virus and became an abomination, not exactly what defined a redesign. Same with Kane and Lynch 2 which you simply took one part of the game. Agree with.the others though, especially Tiny Kong, which after Nintendo decided to keep the design permanent in all her appearances since. Though I guess it's so people can actually differentiate between Tiny and Dixie.

    I think you commented on the wrong list buddy, im guessing your comment is meant for Gaming's 9 wrongest redesign?

    It's impossible to be killed in Kirby's Epic Yarn. At worst, you spray jewels everywhere like Sonic losing his ringts, but all the usual bad platform stuff like spikes or pits won't end your life.

    Yeah, but it wasnt really a unique approach on it. Still, despite not being killed, actually getting all the collectibles are pretty hard.

    In Malice (plataformer for PS2) when you died, you would go to the underworld which was a level on itself; you could go directly to Death and he would send you back to the beginning of the zone you were, or you could fool around for collectibles, however if you died there it was game over for good.
