Release notes made available nearly 2 years after release... Yeah, great.

If this game was really sold as a cracked copy then surely they would have removed the "CRACKED BY QUARTEX" from the intro. I'd be asking the seller for a refund.

I don't believe the figures on that table for a second. It shows the Saturn as being far more powerful than the Playstation in almost every area. The reality was quite the opposite.

To be fair most ECS kids were in the same boat. Few people had KS 2.x/3.x and even fewer would have performed the hardware modification necessary to switch between 50/60hz.

I disagree. The Atari OS is light years ahead of anything available on the Amiga in my opinion.

It's not fair to compare the original GEM from 1985 to what people are running on their Atari's now.
