Completely. Except for some menus and dialogues, the rest of the game is the same. OK, thanks for the reply! How much would I miss out on, then? For some reason, the North American release is impossible to find on eBay lately. You could have a walkthrough of one of the USA versions by your side, ty...

Can you play it if you don't know Japanese? It's definitely cheaper then the USA version.

Re: Question about Dragon's Lair on the 3DO...

Nope, no way to turn it off. However, more annoying to me are the missing things from the Arcade version like the opening sequence and the burning ropes section of the game. Little things, I guess, but I like a complete version. I didn't know that all that was missing. It seems to me like the CD-i ...

Re: Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 3do stuff sold on ebay

It seems like there were a lot of games that were released on both the Macs in the 1990s, and the 3DO. Did the 3DO have similar architecture to any of the PowerPC Macs, or Quadras, or Performas?

Question about Dragon's Lair on the 3DO...

I've watched some footage of the 3DO port of this game, and it seems like every time you enter a new room/area, the game screen turns black and tells you how many lives you have left. I noticed it in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRC-pfcOKXQ This, too me, seems really annoying. Is ther...

If you have the instruction manual for Star Control II, how important is it to have the map? Or was that just included as a kind of bonus for purchasing the game?

I'd love to get this game, but before I do, I'd really love to know how it plays in single-player. Do the computer controlled opponents put up a good fight, or is it too easy in single-player?

I've had my eye on Scramble Cobra for a long time, but I've read that the game is really short, and I don't know how many levels of difficulty there are, much less whether or not you get a score at the end of each level. These are things that add replay value to a game, like the Shockwave series, an...

Re: What's the cheapest interactive move FMV game on the 3DO

Mad Dog McCree can be had for $5-$10 sans box (the 3DO port is awful though) Burning Soldier can be found for $5 or less complete, as is actually quite good imho - next to Starblade it might be my favorite 3DO shooter. What's wrong with the 3DO port of Mad Dog McCree? Is the video really bad, or so...

Cheapest in terms of U.S. dollars. (It seems like a lot of them are cheaper on the Sega CD, even though the video quality isn't as good.) All I care about with 3DO games at this point, is getting the manual and game in a CD case-I'm not a collector, so I don't really care about the long boxes. But I...

This is a 3DO title that I am VERY interested in, but I have not been able to find any reviews of the 3DO version. Are there any around? If not, I would certainly love to hear the thoughts of people on this site on this game.

And, overall, I think it's a good game! I love the graphics, story and music! The one major flaw that I can find in it is that you cannot see a missile, once it's been fired at you-either on your radar, or by switching views. This is really annoying, and makes it impossible to know how to avoid gett...
