Thrill Kill


 Background infos

If you liked Wu-Tang, you'll LOVE Thrill Kill. This is the game Wu-Tang was suppost to be (Untill the ESRB killed it due to extreme violence and explicit sexual content). EA and other companies developed this game but it was quickly shot down and edited for content - which became "Wu-Tang: Shaolin Style". If you have some hookups or a good friend that got their hands on it, there is a final version (there is a beta out, but there is no movies) but it's hard to come across. This game is NOT in stores....

   

Game motivation



 Graphic rating

EpsxE 1.0.1 :
This is very similar to Wu-Tang, except the game is very dark and gothic (with such levels as the morgue, an insane asylum, etc). For EpsxE I used the newest Pete D3D 1.41 plugin AND the Lewpy 20.98 plugin. They both ran fairly well - ALMOST at full speed. Once the game gets down to 2 or 3 characters in the level, the speed picks up to PERFECT speed. Both plugins ran very similar except Lewpy's glide driver had some artifacts in the loading screen. I ran them both at 640x480 with framskip on. Without the frameskip the games wern't quite full speed. Over all, Pete's plugin ran the smoothest but this may vary depending on your hardware. (for mdec, turn on unfiltered frame buffer - faster mdec).


   


bleem! 1.5b :
For this game, to look as good as EpsxE I had to turn on all the 3d "enhancement" features (anti aliasing, etc). This game at times (menu's especially) run much faster than normal speed. The only graphical problems I noticed is between menu's when the fire effect sweeps up the screen, bleem blurred it. Other than that there were no graphical issues what so ever. In game, it was very fast reguardless of how many fighters were on the screen at once. The game was (aswell with EpsxE) flawless graphically.

 Sound rating

EpsxE 1.0.1 :
The sound in EpsxE was perfect. The CDAudio, and the effects had no pops or skips what so ever. The mdec in the game had perfect sound. The eyeball/opening mdec (screenshot is available) ran without a hitch.

bleem! 1.5b :
The mdec's in the game had perfect sound EXCEPT the eyeball mdec (picture avail). The sound skipped/popped, but oddly enough, it only happened to that mdec...hmmm... The ingame sound effects and music were perfect.

Sound rating



 Overall

EpsxE 1.0.1 :
This game is great under epsxe. If you have a better computer than me, you will probally endup with better speed results during the game. Even if your pc is similar to mine, the game is fully playable, and very enjoyable under epsxe. The graphics are great with little to no flaws, the sound is perfect (mdec's included), and the speed is good.

ePSXe rating



bleem! 1.5b :
This game seems to do well under both emulators. The game speed for me under bleem was a bit faster than epsxe, but incomes the horrid mdec sound. Other than that one flaw, the game is great running under bleem. There is no ingame sound flaws, no major graphical flaws (except the blurring between menu's), and the speed is good.

bleem! rating



 Final word

Either way, this game runs great under both emulators, with no major differences setting them apart other than some speed differences. If you run either (or both) of the emulators, you wont be disapointed!
