We never had the original disc however; we had this game on a compilation disc to showcase the games of that time. With our computer, the slight disconnection between the introduction's video and the audio was akin to watching a dubbed Chinese martial arts film (audio dialog would finish just ahead of the graphics). The rest of the game played great. Despite playing with a lower frame rate, the NPC's in the game had enough fluidity to discern proper movement; a better computer system at the time would have improved the game's frame rate.
