Special note: this title (with C Major catalog number 750704) appears to be the exact same record as the Admeto published by C Major in 2010 (with C Major catalog number 702104). The only difference between the two versions we can see so far are the front art on the package. Just follow the link above for a review with screenshots of this title, which earned an especially bad grade from us. We have no idea why C Major continues to flog this broken horse.)
