My key didn't work. I called tech support and their hours end at 4 pm eastern time! WT??? There was also a recording saying that due to recent releases telephone support was temporarily suspended! Another WT??? First time buying a game from these guys and I'm wondering if it would be the last. Maybe there's a reason a new release is only $40 local and $35 on-line. So I decided to submit a ticket and then it's saying it could be up to 48 hours! I start looking at this forum and I'm not alone.
I resolved the issue and suggest everyone that purchased locally do the same. Go to the store and exchange it for another copy. My second one worked. Keep exchanging until you get a good copy. Tell them it's defective. They will send them back to the manufaturer and they should pay the price for shoddy business. How many beta testers did they have? Two?
Another problem I had was with trying to update from within the game where it would always crash. Now I'm able to update the game but why the h3ll is it downloading 2GB worth? I already installed the game. I know of no patch in all my gaming history that is 2GB!!! Is anyone else being told there's an update and downloading 2GB? I cancelled it.
I hate steam and any game that emulates it and don't support them. I didn't know this game included a download system so if the game really sucks then I'll probably ask for a refund because of impulse. I want to buy a physical CD and be able to download all patches from an FTP server and update as I see fit. I don't mind CD keys but not one that doesn't let you do anything useful especially when the system is broken.
