Yes I've been impressed with the port to , although I haven't been able to figure out disk swaps & you have only one kind of setup (1.3 kick) for now,it seems pretty neat.
I've got to say Twisting That Halo is just fantastic & I can see why they wanted it exclusive rights to it.Very much Half-life-ish with Starship troopers undertones and a hint of MOH, IT IS AN Experience. (And BTW it probably has the best (non-gta!) soundtrack I've heard in a game since the Amiga + c64 days).
