Games that were better on PC than on Amiga :-o
« on: July 11, 2004, 04:35:59 PM »
okay, hereby I sentence myself to death, but I have to say.
Originally, I'm a pc guy. But I reckognise the superiority of the Amiga.
But...
Some old games are not really good playable on the Amiga, while it is on the PC. For instance, controls.
Now I ain't gonna moan about the fact that the PC had 256 colors while a standard Amiga still had just 32 in 1990, but I am gonna moan about for instance, Rampart. This remake was one of my favs on the PC. But on the Amiga, I can't get turn the blocks right on time.
There are more, but I dunno atm.

any game,
I know Rampart was later ported to PC and was an enhanced version of the original. I wanted to mention the original on the PC (an option of the PC version of Rampart) and this is just better playable.
So is Stunts (4d racing or something alike it was called on the Amiga) and F29 Retalliator.

Carmageddon, Carmageddon2 and TDR2000 (aka. Carmageddon 3).  Only because they were never released on Amiga ...

Monkey Island games

Amigas have a total of 4096 colors on early machines, it could only display 32.

Carmageddon rules! Ah the memories I got the first carmageddon game on my 11th birthday lol and have since finished it several times, never gets boring, it's just a pity you needed a 3DFX card to make it look good, the software version was horrible compared to the VooDoo one. We need carmageddon on the Amiga I think :-P

Yeah, I know that and Amiga could also display all those 4096 colors
but it's not about that. I wanted to point out which games were more playable on the PC.

I agree with Rampart... Monkey Island I (VGA-version), Monkey Island II, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, Syndicate, Mortal Kombat and Civilization also!

Unreal.

The PC version was a graphically beautifull 3d shooter, stunning graphics, etc.

The Amiga version was something else completely!

(Yes, I cheated, completely different game :lol:)

oh man, that was the first time after the Amiga that I was impressed again. With my newly acquired pentium 2 + 3dfx, it was hallucinatory.
I expect the next Amiga to be that kind of impressive.
