The c64/Apple ][ "cutscene" for 2 was pretty cool, even if the shading was a tad bizarre. And yeah the burning fire was amazingly well done in the intro.

I also feel there was a bit more charm in the Apple ][ / c64 portraits & town, but there's a lot of pixel love in the Amiga/Apple IIgs presentation as well.

It's really the PC that's the poor cousin, presentation-wise, with annoying beeps and art not designed for the limited EGA palette.
