I can't say I've played a lot of reboots, but I enjoyed the Mortal Kombat reboot, even though I don't think my opinion is 100% because I never played the originals, so I have no basis of comparison.
Also mention if you're an anti or a pro so it's easier to tell how your taste in games is a little. (I'm an anti)
I came here to chew bubblegum and kick ass, and I'm all out of bubblegum.

Mortal Kombat was good, but I'm not sure it exactly counts as a reboot even though they went back in time etc. It was explained (however simply) rather than just starting from scratch.

While I don't want it to replace the old series, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is an excellent game. Definitely worth playing, and I can't wait for Mirror of Fate and LoS2.

I can't actually think of any other rebooted game series at the moment.

DmC


also mortal kombat even though it was more of a remake. Castlevania was fine even though it left me missing many things.

Lords of Shadow just cause past 3D games were so so.
if you don't play this game, you ARE part of the f***ing problem.

DmC
Ninja Gaiden
SSX
Rayman Origins
Prince of Persia: The sands of time
X-Com: Enemy Unknown

All of them great games, and I don't think anyone would find these controversial other than DmC.

Again, most of these aren't exactly reboots. Generations was a return to more classic gameplay with a story loosely based in the "canon" timeline.

Resident Evil 4 was a canon continuation, albeit with a new gameplay engine.

ICO and Shadow of the Colossus are set in the same universe.

And Rock Band is a different series, albeit by the same creators.

Though I do agree that Generations and Rock Band are better than Adventure and Guitar Hero.

I was thinking in terms of gameplay, the examples all play better than their originals, and don't have too much in common aside from setting.

Also forgot SSX Deadly Descents - absolutely the best sports game I've played this generation
