    The best I could find is some version of Bodoni.

    Onyx at maybe 110% width would be really really close.

    But it really does look like Bodoni Compressed.

    Like what? Easy to sneer, much harder to offer constructive help.

    ...it is a bit Retro

    ...but everyone has their opinion, and if Vectorman thinks its soooo bad, lets see some of his type design.! And I will gladly show some of mine.

    otherwise, Bodoni seems the closest but not exactly.
    Thank you all.
