That's actually got some relevance to this topic, i've always pulled the Starshot CD out every now and then only to find out that it wouldn't run. Turns out the CD was just damaged because I finally managed to find it on some obscure Russian forum and it worked fine! You can even use a GLIDE emulator with almost no problems, I think that should be something to be proud of nowadays.

The PC version crushes the N64 version! If you're interested, I ripped the soundtrack for the game.

Yeah, I know. Apparently the game wasn't that great and really missed the wave of the first 3D platformers... But if you played the N64 version, the PC version was actually much better it seems. It runs at a solid 60FPS, had CGI cutscenes and full voice acting... The guy who voiced Starshot also voiced Psycho Mantis in Metal Gear Solid!

Definately underrated... Some of the reviewers like FiringSquad were very biased which is a shame.

I would've liked a sequel or even for a digital redistribution, there are barely any platformers on the PC.
