->If ''[[VideoGame/UltimaVi The False Prophet]]'' was pushing the capabilities of the SuperNintendo's antiquated processor and 128kb of memory, ''The Black Gate'' shoved them off a cliff...Various words including most notably the word "kill" are gone from the dialogue, as well as nearly everything that could be construed as an adult situation, resulting in a horribly [[{{Bowdlerization}} bowdlerized]] game which demands no thought or moral choice and becomes just another consequence-free, mindless hack-and-slasher of the sort that Richard Garriott has been specifically trying to move away from since ''[[VideoGame/UltimaIV Quest of the Avatar]]''. There's really no reason to play this game at all. Please don't. [[TheyJustDidntCare It doesn't even have SNES mouse support.]]

->I hear the [[SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem Super Nintendo]] version didn't have a countdown timer, and actually explained the plot a bit better, but like I said, I played the [[SegaGenesis Genesis]] version as a kid, so here I am!

->And now for the UsefulNotes/{{Amstrad|CPC}} version. What can I say? Words such as travesty leap to mind. Surely there's some mistake. This isn't the ''VideoGame/OutRun'' we know and love. This is something else, something indefinable, something which wants to make you scream and bang your head against the nearest solid object, something you will regret spending your money on.
