Then I'd love to know why the PC version has invisible walls and shitty menu interface that was clearly not meant for a mouse + keyboard interactivity.

The menu is one of the design issues I mentioned.

And the barriers are there to protect the player from doing something stupid, like falling into an abyss. And disallowing them from going anywhere where Croteam didn't want you to go and save FPS.

Croteam allowed us to do stupid things in SS1 games and accidentally fall into abyss, I just don't understand them for deciding to put invisible walls. For the xbox version I would understand, but the PC version...?

I'd want to fall down and enjoy the view, then reload the savegame.
It'd make the game more irritating in a fun way. (weird sentence )

Hell, Fiendan, you'd enjoy SS2 10x better if you just downloaded InSamnity 2 and player-made maps, please try them out. Nearly everything you hate in SS2 has been fixed...well, except the cartoonish look.

I set a goal that I would download and try out InSamnity! 2 as soon as I beat the game on Serious, and I'm in Floaterra so I'm well on the way to achieve that.

Does the mod remove the invisible walls, btw?

That's only half the success, the second half is a damage volume to kill you after falling for a few moments.
But I'll definitely check it out, sounds more and more exciting.

3 profiles corrupted? Something tells me SS2 isn't the only reason, is your hard drive old and/or very fragmented?

Uh yeah, that's right. Way more epic than the whole bunch of music tracks in SS2 together can be.

... plus they have their style. I personally don't like the SS2 music, though it is funny and makes me laugh

But I like the SS1 music more, it seems it is influenced by metal and so I don't have to use winamp while playing, while I have to do when I play SS2 and turn off the music.

Might that be the reason why you don't think there are any good tracks in the game too? Just turn off yer mp3 players and listen to the game music At least when playing custom maps

Music makes you laugh?

Quite a few of the SS2 music was truly amazing and are in par with the SS1 one, such as Greendale, Mental Institution and Siriusopolis Downtown.

Not really laughing, but at least a smile. But SS2 doesn't has such catchy tunes which keep staying in your mind, at least not for me, but everyone likes music a different way.

I like catchy music, but I also like the atmospheric.
SS1 had more catchy music, no one can deny that. Remember the fight music of Courtyards of Gilgamesh?

Aww man, then you've missed many great custom soundtracks in SS2 maps. Music is also a part of the game so don't miss it in the future please Also, I'm sure that at least one of the SS2 tracks will stick to your head if you listen to it more than just once
