Mac emulation is in an unfortunately spotty state, I wouldn't fully rely on them to bring the right experience. There really isn't a PCem equivalent for Mac.
Voodoo2s aren't 100mhz stock
Geforce256 isn't released as a beta on New Years '99 under the Quadro brand
386DX vs SX isn't about a missing FPU
DOS gaming isn't a bilinear 320x200 16:10
DOS PCs aren't better than the Macintosh
Old PCs aren't 'aesthetic'

SEGA CD ver. has better completely different backgrounds and one completely new scenery (snowy) with very nicely designed new levels.[/quote]

SEGA CD version would be great if characters wouldn't look so plasticky. ;]

Yeah, hardcoregaming 101 did a nice comparison of Blackthorne versions, where they mentioned the pros and the cons of the Sega 32x.
