	I recently got the game through trade and played it.  It was
*very* weak!  The story line was bad, the action is bad, and it isn't
very balanced.  You're either kicking ass, or getting your ass kicked,
without much of a middle ground to make it "challenging".  Also, the
code has way to many bugs (there's a way to effectively give your
characters unlimited movement until they attack).  Unless you want it
for a collection, I wouldn't recommend it...

	I don't think there was a Mac version, but the DOS one can be
found at some used game stores.
