Additional Comments

-Works slow -A lot of graphical stuff wrong But gameplay wise it works flawless, even in multiplayer. This is why I must give it a platinum rating according to the rating definitions. This doesn´t mean the game works perfect. ADMIN NOTE: rating changed to conform to the rating definitions. Pre-1.6 versions of the game don´t show the terrain glitches, which are the worst of them. So I recommend staying with 1.5 if you haven´t updated yet.
