Dark Reign by Auran and Activision

I first ran Dark Reign on a 486-DX66

.I first ran Dark Reign on a 486-DX66 ... and it ran very well! At the time I was undecided between getting Total Annhilation, which had also just been released, and Dark Reign. The salesman reckoned that my poor old '486 would have a better shot at running Dark Reign since TA used a lot of polygons on screen. He was right, such were the hair splitting decisions one had to make when buying games in the Pleistocene era.

Here are the official specs:

  • Pentium 90 MHz processor (100% IBM PC-compatible)
  • U.S. version Microsoft Windows 95 operating system
