While the US release of the game had a 3DO rating of 12, the Japanese version was rated E.
One nice touch about the video background is that it is larger than the screen. This allowed the developers to shift it
up/down/left/right according to player movement, and it helps mask the fact that it's on rails. Another nice trick is a
very quick interpolation and rotation section of the video playback code, which allows them to rotate the backdrop +/-
15 degrees if you bank left or right.
