There is an almost sad quality to this...Ballistics came out like six years ago and to little critical or public acclaim. I wonder who in the world decided this would be a worthwhile port?
I didn't remember it until I fired up the demo and remembered playing the PC demo ages ago and giving it a pass. I ended up playing Armagetron all evening instead.
