Key points

Updated re-release of Iron Storm.
Adds native support for anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering and widescreen resolutions.
Removes multiplayer support, quick-saving, third-person view, and most cutscenes.
Game lacks an FPS limiter, resulting in a large amount of bugs and physics glitches at frame rates higher than 60 FPS.
