    If Core were to do another game, then id would have to be hunter... c'mon Jeremt and Adrian... get the boys to go back and update this classic... I wanna windsurf and bike ride, and drive tanks and helicopters again... and maybe run over a cow, or shoot a seagull.

    Anybody who reads this if you haven't tried Hunter, give it a go... it's kind of slow, and graphically simplistic compared to today's hardware driven engines... but for it's time... only equalled by Midwinter...

    I don't think EmuViews is there yet. Although I wouldn't mind if it were. Hopefully features like this will help it grow. If you have any suggestions that you would like to see here, just let me know! :)
