Barbarian does look that shitty on the Tandy. There is no place to change setting for a Tandy mode so I asume there is none.

I love such videos. However, later VGA games were a bit better.

Why not make another video that flips sides a little bit? ... I mean stuff like Dune 2, Worms, and some others where we can see where its obvious that hardware upgrades are apparent (on the PC obviously) - maybe have it in chronological order until when theres no ports left?
Well Dune 2 graphically had more colours than the Amiga version, but sonically i dont remember the PC version being better than the Amiga.

When i comes to Worms, there is no way possible you could use that as a comparison, because Worms ECS & Worms AGA were released a long time before they hit the PC, so if you don't have both versions released at the same time, its an unfair comparison, because as time moves on, so of course does technology.

Its a bit like comparing Need For Speed on a PS1 with Need For Speed on an Xbox. Both versions are very different in the technology timeline.

Unless there was a patch for the amiga version I don't know of, the PC version is far superior in the sound department (and still is superior to some modern games in my opinion):

- real music instead of a vague 'chanting voice' on amiga (or whatever it is)

- dynamic music, i.e. some tunes are played when you are idling (harvesting/building) and then when a battle begins another tune takes over, until the battle ends and it returns to normal.

- richer sound effects, especially for digital voices. Especially instead of simply 'enemy unit approaching', you had 'enemy unit approaching from the north/east/....'


Now from what I had heard the original PC release of Dune II had some weaknesses, notably poor voice acting for non-English (German/French) voices, which were solved with a patch.

Perhaps you played the original release, which maybe was on par with the amiga version (I don't know since I never played the original PC version).

There are also some details - compare the wind catching facilities in both versions. I saw Dune 2 on pc and first crack appeared on my belief in superiority of amiga

He compared old Amiga games (mostly 1986-1990) with old PC game versions, of course it's valid.

Take it easy

Anyway, I don't think it's so unfair to put older games in there.. after all, comparing games released years and years later would be unfair

Like some silly guy in the Youtube comments section wanted me to have included Mortal Kombat.. that game was released in 1993!

I will admit to being a little biased though but c'mon.. the Amiga *was* better for games back when it was released

your video was very well edited...you are great
but you can't compare for ex the game barbarian which was a game for the sinclair spectrum...horrible and bored game
the amiga was good for games until 1995

but some amiga games lost when compared with idem PC version, SNES version, or the MEGADRIVE version

here are some examples

addams family....SNES version is lot better than amiga

alien 3...MEGADRIVE version is better

coolspot....MEGADRIVE version is better

lion king...SNES version and PC version are lot better than the amiga one

magic boy...SNES version is lot better than amiga one

turrican 2 ...PC versions is better

turrican 3...named megaturrican.....MEGADRIVE version is better+

chuck rock 1 & 2 are better on the megadrive

wolfchild.....MEGADRIVE version is lot better

gods...which was compared on your video......MEGADRIVE version is lot better than the amiga and PC...even have music and audioeffects


well...Im tired making examples....but here you have some games if you wanna make another video...more real of course


bye

Just to clarify a couple of things. You are really picking at straws here... YES, the Megadrive version of Gods has Parallax scrolling, but all that is really different graphically is that, plus also the game runs a lot faster but not better.. it actually runs TOO fast!. And the sound in the Megadrive version is absolutely SHIT compared to the Amiga version. !?..

When it comes to Turrican 2 on the PC. Yeah the PC version is better, because the PC version was done in 2002, not 1991 !!!!... big difference in Hardware between 1991 and 2002 !!.

I wont go into the rest of the games in your list yet, because i don't have time.

Turrican 2 PC version was made on 1995 (I think)

I seem to recall it be being released in 2002 !?. Maybe i am wrong?.. but even if it is 1995, its still a 4 year difference and was never a simultaneous release.

Its like comparing Stardust on the A500 to Super Stardust on the A1200. Of course its going to be better on the A1200, because time has moved on and hardware has got a lot better.

And as we all know, a lot changes in computer technology within 4 years, more than anything else out there, so its an unfair comparison.
