HEY that's a horrible insult to one of the best eras of PC gaming!
You have a selective memory, it was also an era filled with constant tinkering to get many PC games to even run. Some of us don't look back fondly on that kind of experience.
And yet shoddy ports like this game weren't common back then.
What sort of tinkering are you talking about? I can understand the older dos games where you had to run setup, figure out your soundcard's IRQ ports, etc.. but then the win98 era when half life 2, homeworld, jedi knight2 and outlaws came out, all i remember was popping the disc in, configuring my displays, keys and then playing it.. Besides, All pc games have to have some sort of tinkering to get things configured, simply because a decent PC game has lots of options for configuring - it's the nature of having a somewhat open os over a x360. With that said, when it gets to be more than just a few minutes for it, like dealing with bulletstorm's GFWL bullshit for example, that's when it's a problem. As far as I'm concerned, If you're problem is that you want absolutely ZERO tinkering whatsoever, just plug and play only no installs no nothing, then get a console!
Besides, I'd take running those old setup.exe tinkering over the fuckery involved with this port.
