    judging by the videos on XBL it's going to be a tomb raider-esque 3D platformer with a grapling hook/arm.

    Bionic Commando and Alone in the Dark for me out of that list. Another vote here for Bionic Commando being faithful to the origional. Played it to death on the C64 when released on tape all those years ago, loved it then so hopefully they will get it right.

    The Alone in the Dark remake has peaked my interest, I did like the New Nightmare or whatever it was called few years back and the ability to choose between the 2 characters. Early video that is flitting about the net for this one looks really good so will have to wait and see.
