Actual speeds are much lower than reported FPS. Graphics are jittery and lagged. This game is theoretically playable, but certainly not enjoyable.

Played for one hour. Runs at full speed in OpenGL software and hardware mode, up to 4x internal resolution. Occasional hiccups and jittering in software mode. The lagginess mentioned in the previous test entry is not a problem with emulation - it is consistent with how the game performs on real PS2 hardware. Flang


Known Issues

FMV stutter

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Serious
  • Description: FMVs do not play smoothly. They suffer from frequent pausing and stuttering in both hardware and software mode, especialy during moments with fast camera movement or a lot of activity. The opening Sierra logo also has flickering issues.
  • Workaround: None

Incorrect shadows

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Serious
  • Description: In-game shadows appear on the wrong surfaces (e.g. a ceiling light shining down at a table will display a shadow on the wall) and will also flicker or disappear at certain camera distances. This problem happens in both hardware and software mode.
  • Workaround: None
