    Upon its release, Lock On was notorious for being rather demanding of PC hardware. Even some high-end PC's had trouble running the game smoothly because of its high level of detail.
Since 2003, the game has been updated with bug fixes and address crashes and other minor glitches. In the 1.1 update, known as Lock On: Flaming Cliffs.
