The game features 3-D character models and items superimposed on a 2-D pre-rendered background. That means the backgrounds are essentially flat objects. Pre-rendered essentially means that the graphics were created beforehand and placed into it as static backgrounds. This practice was prevalent in PlayStation titles as a graphical enhancement.
