Would love to tell you how good this game is but the copy-protection has decided that I'm not allowed to play the game untill starforce tech support has analysed my machine and my CD key.

What a joke

Avoid, unless you have one of the few DVD drives that starforce works reliably on or are in the US (where it comes on CDs instead of DVDs)

I've officially boycotted any game with Star Force protection. That stuff is a fucking nightmare.

yup. first thing I've run into with it as far as I know.

Also will be last thing.

I bought Silent Hunter 3, and haven't had any of the severe problems, just some minor things with crashes and disk reading problems (only for SH3), that many others have had, but I'm not even going to risk it. Not only that, but any game I'm interested in that has Star Force, I'll let the dev company know that I didn't buy it because of Star Force.

I might have to take my criticism back.

Just got an email from starforce with an override code specific for my machine.

Took them less than 1 hour to reply.

Their copy protection might be screwy but thats one hell fo a good tech support dept.

(of course if it worked well in the first place....)

Get rid of starforce. It installed drivers into your drives. Here is a link to get rid of it.

You bought the game, download a cracked copy of it from the net that doesn't need the disc and is starforce free.

I'm going to go the HK/KG route and steal all Star Force protected games from here on out.

I wasn't a theif until best buy had 100 writable DVDs for 20$.

Best Buy is the cause of my illegal activities. Bastard corporate america!

PM me if you need help getting set up as a filthy theif.

working on it. what with the holidays I've only played it for about 2 days. Seems much harder than X2 though.
