Hi Glenn,

Thanks for the game, it brings back memories. There's no voice narrating in the game though, is there any instructions to turn the voices on? :)

Thanks in advance!

Cheers,
Rhy

I know it's been said before, but there aren't any voices... how exactly do I get them?

The voices were only available through the CD version. What I'm wondering is whether or not there is a way to download a voice pack?
