I remember seeing Reah at a Fry's Electronics a few years back selling for I think $40-50. It was subtitled An Atmoshperic Adventure I believe. I didn't buy it then because I thought the price was too steep. Little did I know I'd end up paying pretty much that same price to get one off ebay! lol

Any idea where to buy the DVD version in Enlgish?
Second hand only I'm afraid. But beware that there are some copies of the US DVD version in circulation which don't work.

The master had been prepared incorrectly by the mastering facility but nobody there cared to check it and that malfunctioning DVD was manufactured and went to distribution. The whole stock of DVD games was to be withdrawn from the market, but some slipped by. They need a hefty 300MB "patch" to get them working.

This "accident" pracically killed the Reah distribution in the US - no more CD version were ordered and none DVD versions. Soon after that Project 2 went backrupt and this meant the end of Reah availability.

The Reah DVD being sold on ebay looks like it's packaged like the one I bought a while back. I bought mine from a place called DVD Direct in the UK which sold mostly DVD movies. Someone had posted the link in Gameboomers.

Mine is in a clear plastic DVD case and the installer worked fine on it. Were all the Reah DVD games packaged the same way? Were the corrected ones (like mine) packaged any differently?

We haven't seen that faulty US DVD packages, therefore I can't say anything about their appearance. That one on eBay seems to be the European version, at least it looks like my only DVD copy.

Wow, that last one is at $76.00 with 7 more days to go.
I noticed the one at Playing Games says,'Preplayed', wonder what shape the CDs are in??

My box has blue sky at the top, with the old City (Citidal?) imposed on it (embossed) and a bridge going to it at the bottom. I loaded it (3 years ago?) when I first got it just to make sure it worked, so CD 1 is the only one that has been out of the case. Doesn't that make it 'Unplayed'.??? happydance

I purchased 2 copies of Reah in the last 4 months. Paid around $40 for a CD-only copy and $53 for a boxed version in good condition. Reah is becoming increasingly hard to find at a reasonable price.

wow......wow........wow...........that's crazy!!!!! I can't believe it's going for that much on ebay. I guess I should feel very fortunate; i got it for nothing from a VERY generous Gameboomer a while ago. (cd version) Wow..........thanks Bev!!!!!!! thumbsup

It's a great game, too, i really enjoyed playing it! That gong puzzle was nearly the death of me though.... eek

It's not surprising that the DVD version is going for more than the CD version. It never was very commonplace.

Well for all the hours of pleasure I have had from this game.. my £5.55 for an unboxed CD version seems a real bargain thumbsup
