I imported the U.K. release from the amazon.co.uk website several months back. The gameplay is awesome and exceeds that of either the PS2, Gamecube, or PC versions of these games. (In my opinion, it was truly worth the money.) I may go back and play Sands of Time again. As some people have said, however, there do appear to be a few sound glitches in the U.K. version of the game. Though, I attribute those issues to the fact that the game was designed for televisions that support stereoscopic 3D sound. Since I do not have the money to spend on that high end a TV, I was quite happy simply putting the sound up a little higher and then lowering the sound settings for background sounds and music (so I could hear the voices.) All in all, a great game. Five out of five stars.
A few sound glitches? The sound makes these games completely unplayable. This is not due to a stereoscopic 3D sound, it is from creating a lazy port and incorporating a mediocre sound mix.
Even after adjusting the sound mix, the quality of audio is atrocious. I waited a long time for this HD release, and am extremely disappointed. How can you, or anyone else, give 5 stars to such a terrible port? Half of the experience is the sound. This is a disaster!
