I have it installed, actually. The game still impresses me in ways today. It was definitely ahead of its time.

It may be a bit of a disjointed adventure, but it was definitely unreal. It took you on one hell of a ride, that's for sure. And it didn't end in only a few hours like other big games today.

And let's not forget how much it changed Epic. Jazz Jackrabbit + Pinball games to a super huge franchise, licensable in-demand tech. They jumped to the top of the gaming world with that one. I only wish Epic was as adventurous still. GoW is so very disappointing.....
