All hacks have no substantial speedup, except MTVU (Multi-Threaded microVU1) which showed significant speedup. Scaling is the main drain of the game. Usually 55-60 FPS during fights and cutscenes. However, it may lag to around 40 FPS for a second or two with big explosions such as Fire effects (or in other instances). Bot2345

NTSC-J Arch Linux
  • AMD Ryzen 5 3600

Minor graphical issues. Easier to see on higher resolutions. "Seams" in images, the cursor for example. The 60fps patch breaks Quick Run (makes it shorter) and makes some bosses and minigames hard/impossible. Without the patch those issues do not exist. The PS4 version has more issues than this one so I'd consider the experience superb. Bizlab
