Additional Comments

Obtained via Steam, game version is 1.01u. To avoid the crash on startup you have to pass a '-noavi' command line parameter. This will instruct the game not to play the intro videos (company logos). They use the Intel Indeo 5 codecs. Rated to Bronze, because the crash at the end of the scenarios are quite disturbing. Caused by the ending video file (needs the Indeo 5 codecs just like the intro videos).
