Get the HKL PS1, the Deltamac PS 2 and 3's.

The HKL release of the 2nd is cropped badly

PS1 has bad subtitle translation and a oddly stretched picture.
PS2 is cropped.

I'd still recommend them over the HK counterparts though.

It's a squashed pic I think.

The HKL PS2 has a far better pic (plus extras) so I spose it depends on whether you can live with the cropping?

Have to say, aside from the brief shot of the truck nearly running over Jackie, the cropping didn't spoil my enjoyment of PS2. As Peter said, the picture is still fine otherwise so couple that with the extra features and the HKL disc is still the way to go IMO.

The cropping (on HKL PS2) didn't really bother me either. I think the pic quality on the Deltamac/FortuneStar recent HK release of PS 1 and 2 are very poor.
