|Comments=
* As of r5371 software mode works "ok" and you can get rid of some major graphical glitches like the lines that cover your entire screen. However even with a quad core the game still ran slow unless you used a combination of hacks and EE and VU cycle stealing. Using anything other than native resolution causes the emulator to crawl to a halt and anything higher can cause your computer to hang., You'll need a really powerful GPU or CPU to get this game to run smoothly,Waiting for actualization...soon.
+
* HACKS: INTC Spin Detection, Wait Loop Detection, Fast CDVD, mVU Flag Hack, MTVU

* Unplayable
 +
Using any hacks or tweaks is ultimately futile. The game is largely unplayable and requires software mode to fix some of the major glitches.
 +
However you'll need a really powerful computer to get this game to run smoothly. Waiting for actualization...soon.
