The EGA/VGA graphics are colorful and stunning, with fast scrolling screens and high-speed animation. Dark Ages has such demanding graphics and animation that it requires an 80286 (or 80386) machine to run at proper speed, otherwise it may run too slowly. (NOTE: Dark Ages runs too fast on 486 or higher computers. You will need to slow them down to play).
