anything you wanna know about what goes on in the game can most likely be found in the N64 thread by the same name. sorry, im not copy/pasting for you.

as far as movie making, it went fine. im more familiar with this game than others... it was fun to find new things via frame advance and slowdowns though.

story: 8 years before the exploits of reinhardt and carrie, cornell entered the demon castle in search of his kidnapped sister... but nothing is as it seems... not even our hero.

this is an excellent game, far surpassing the incomplete release in most every aspect. the music would be even better if it werent for the N64's sound chip which blasts the sound, but its still good all the same.

the gameplay in this is slightly different than its predecessor... notable is the jumping and the camera angles... its actually made in this game to HELP the player as opposed to making it just frustrating.

and why would anyone wanna watch it? the same reason you watch any other movie on this site... because you wanted to. there's no outstanding glitches, and this version is the longest (cornell has the most quests). im not saying its not entertaining, because i did make it so it would be. but some people might not like it. it is different than the first game in enough ways i believe.
