The N64 and PC version differ greatly. The PC version has sharper and smoother gameplay graphics (using a 3D card) than the N64 version. The PC version and N64 version have slightly different cutscenes, that being the PC version has full-motion cinematic cutscenes with sound effects and voices, while the N64 version just has drawn sketches with text at the bottom of the screen.
