    that's one of the games I wanted to play as a child but couldn't. The graphics looked amazing to me on computer magazines at the time -specially the Amiga version-, and I mean computer, not consoles. The brownish but colourful graphics of that version on Micromania magazine got me so hyped about a game like that at the time. Alas never happened to play that game in the end :/

    If it's RT-related, you know Alex is close by.

    Well, not really. They also changed assets, polygon counts, ....
    So the "RT"-renderer looks better than the "original" renderer. It is like the nvidia Quake 2 RTX demo. It was an apples to oranges comparison. Just like this one.
