Very nice game!
I grabbed that off the shelf the same day that I bought my first computer.
It really blew my mind at the time.
And its still gorgeous looking today for the art direction. They really put forth a lot of effort into the production quality. I've still got the original disks and the booklets that talk about the production.

I heard there was even a very rare DVD version made. I've never seen it though.

The only thing that dates the game is the sprite characters but its still worth playing.

True, but thats like saying that the special FX today are better than they were in 1980.

The one huge distraction in the original release for me occurs in the last scene with Deckard and Batty on the roof where Batty releases the dove and a shot of it flying away was inserted. It's so obviously shot in daylight and the architecture of the studio building in the background is sooooo 20th century. I believe the original night-time shot of the bird was unusable due to an uncooperative dove. The studio had pulled the plug on the money by that time and the production crew had to scramble in order to substitute a shot on the regular lot. Maybe I'm wrong. but I think that's how it played out...
Anyway: If they spent new money on inserting the real actress' face into the shattering glass window shot to replace her stunt double - tell me they fixed the more obvious and jarring dove scene...

Los Angeles is like that.The old mixed in with the new. There are some buildings downtown that date back to the 19th century.There are whole neighborhoods that date back to the late 19th century and are declared historical sites.My grandmothers house is a state historical treasure. Too bad the entire downtown area lies on top of a active earthquake fault line which is capable of a 7 plus magnitude quake.

It wasn't just the fact it was obviously a trading estate building, it was the lighting (it was daylight!) and well, everything was all wrong with the shot.

Thanks Doomsday - I neglected to mention the more obvious daylight mistake...
