Italian versionThe Italian version is not so well done. Ostrich (struzzo in Italian) was translated as oyster (ostrica in Italian). Imagine the game speech saying how the oyster hide their head under the sand...
Polish versionThe Polish initial release had a coupon in the box allowing you to exchange the English game disc (included) with the Polish localized edition (which was supposed to be in the box instead, but they didn't make it in time) when sent to the distributor. To make it up there was a book in the box: a XIXc. historical novel Faraon [Pharaoh] by Bolesław Prus.
