@BlackCatz40:

 

 

Regarding the Jaguar 2MB Ram issue:

 

Not sure IF your aware, but concept wise, Highlander started out as a beat em up, using SGI characters, a la Rise Of The Robots, but this was abandoned as soon as developers realised you couldn't do this justice on a system with as they put it, a mere 2Mb of Ram...

Atari owl was never sure why the frame rate in highlander was so poor. He stated there's no reason for it to be really.

I have heard that Rise of the Robots was supposed to be released for the Jag. Yeah. It was also not really too much more expensive to up the RAM on the Jag. Atari were just cutting corners, that's all, without thinking that the Jag was being undermined as a result.

Don't get me wrong, but I like the way Highlander looks. I just don't know if it would have fared better as its previous concept as a beat-'em-up title. It might have done better that way, but there were so many titles like that in the 1990s. There would have been stiff competition, especially with Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter. It just needed more. Atari were just being cheap.

It wouldn't have fared better. Not under Lore design. They seemed to be another grab the money and slop something together crew.

Yup. You are right about that.

There was something about the Euro Developers Atari hired. They had a wackiness to their game design style that just didn't go over well with most of the public.

And a lot of them seemed to be fly by nighters.

Isn't it nice, that Rise of the Robots never appeared on the Jaguar?
I like the fact!
