If I were to get it, it would be for nostalgia's sake mainly (although I wouldn't rule out a playthrough or however many are needed for all the trophies), as I still have the PS2 version on the shelf, or more likely in a box somewhere. But what you're saying is true, last gen never really got the camera work right. With the exception of RE4, perhaps. Anyway, Ubi never got the hang of the camera back then.
I'll give a recommendation for Beyond Good & Evil. Ł4 is a fantastic price, though I felt the camera was a bit dodgy.
BttF and BGE look very tempting in the sale...
