Isn't it a direct port? As far as control goes, you won't find a more simple game than Starblade, so I'm not sure how the could mess it up ... d-pad and 1 button only, lol. Never bothered to explore it much ... there are only so many psx ports I could play before I realized the original 3DO version...

OK, thanks! :D IGN's old review claims that controls are horrible: http://psx.ign.com/articles/150/150679p1.html
I find that hard to believe, unless they were really messed up during the conversion process.

AFIK, it is-it's 2 discs, Shockwave, and then Jumpgate, the expansion.

To Shockwave and Shockwave: Operation Jumpgate on the 3DO? In terms of graphics, it does look as good; I found this scan of the back of the Sega Saturn box: http://www.mobygames.com/game/sega-saturn/shockwave-assault/cover-art/gameCoverId,66932/ But are the controls and the FMV as good? And, are the...

Where is the best place on the internet to buy 3DO games?...

I'm not a collector, and I'm finding it to be very difficult to get 3DO games that only have the disc and instructions, which is all I need-not the huge long boxes. Any suggestions would be welcome!

I sunk a ton of hours into syndicate back in the day. I actually bought this at a store during the 3do's lifetime. The port is solid. If you read a review that says it plays slow, that is just how the game is. The PC version is probably best, but i think it lacked the CG scenes. The controls take a...

Compared to the other home console ports, like the Jaguar and the Sega Genesis. I mean, good in terms of it's frame rate and it's controls.

I'd like to know that, too. Yeah, it really seems like you'd need a mouse to properly play this game. Too bad that the 3DO port doesn't support the 3DO mouse.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xj4hcYK2S1Q Well, the power ups do look a LOT easier to spot, and it there are larger objects in the game that it seems like you could hide behind-which is VERY important in any Battlezone-type game.

I LOVE this game, but I got it off of Ebay and it did not come with an instruction manual, so I don't know if you can save your game. The game only seems to save your profile, in terms of high scores, but I can't seem save in terms of picking up where I left off-which would be really helpful.
