Oot 3d is a remake. they redid the games graphics from scratch they have also added a few thing that were not in the original release.
P4G is an enhanced port even the dev's have said so.

While OoT3DS, which primarily has enhanced and retouched graphics, some extra touch screen controls and a few extra features that could be found in the other versions, be considered a "remake"?



Because a total rebuild of models and textures and game engine is considered a remake. And that's what OoT is. It wasn't just "retouched" graphics. They remade all the models with higher polygons. Everything was rebuilt from the ground up to fit with the more modern graphical standards.


If that is considered as a remake, why is Sonic Adventure DX considered as a "enhanced port" then?

Of interest to note for this arguement:-
Enhanced graphics: Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy were re-created with higher polygon counts, resulting in smoother models. For some reason, Big and Gamma were not recreated. Though, Big's hands were given a higher polygon count. The GameCube's TEV system, similar to nVidia's register combiners, was also used for effects like rippling water. (These effects are not present in the PC version, however). The PC version has the option to remove some smaller objects or effects from stages (like the fire hydrants in Speed Highyway's At Dawn segment) to improve performance.

In addition, I heard they also fixed some of the bugs present in the original version(while creating a few new ones) in addition to a hell lot more of additional content than OoT3DS

Because it was very minor graphical polishes. Only a few models were redone for a few characters. The landscape and levels models weren't rebuilt. Most polygon count stayed the same for landscape. Where as in OoT 3D, EVERYTHING and EVERY CHARACTER was rebuilt into better 3D models. Even the 2D marketplace of Hyrule has been turned to all 3D.
