Spaceships Ahoy - Space Rangers 2

Cinemaware Marquee announces that Space Rangers 2: Rise of the Dominators is now shipping to stores in North America:

LANGHORNE, PA – March 27, 2006 – Cinemaware Marquee, an affiliated label of eGames, Inc. (OTCBB:EGAM), today announced its first title, Space Rangers 2: Rise of the Dominators is now shipping for PC. Already a smash hit overseas, this intergalactic, genre-busting masterpiece promises uncompromised gameplay and a depth that’s rarely seen in games.

Developed by Russian studio Elemental Games and produced by 1C Company, Space Rangers 2: Rise of the Dominators is the unexpected critical success of the year. Computer Games Magazine has described the game as “a classic”, scoring it at 4 1/2 out of 5 stars and giving it a coveted "Editor's Choice" award. Previews in the gaming press, based on extensive hands on time with the game, have been universally positive.

“I can’t wait for gamers to get their hands on Space Rangers 2,” said Lars Batista, Vice President of Product Development for eGames. “Elemental Games has delivered a masterpiece, and I’m proud that this game is going to be Cinemaware Marquee’s flagship title. This one is going to blow people away.”

Space Rangers 2 is not easily classifiable. It can be best described as a turn-based RPG giving gamers an unprecedented level of freedom in a vast universe. Combining various genres and styles of gameplay, including third and first person mech battles, RTS elements, classic text adventures, and an arcade style shooter, the game allows the player to determine their own destiny. There are an unlimited number of outcomes to Space Rangers 2 – each player will get a different experience in the face of evil intentions from a sinister race of robots.

“We have always had a bold vision for Space Rangers 2,” said Dmitriy Gusarov, Head of Development at Elemental Games. “Cinemaware Marquee was able to give us the opportunity to launch the North American version of the game, which has a level of polish and groundbreaking gameplay we have always dreamed about.”

Space Rangers 2: Rise of the Dominators is available now at retail for $29.99. As an added value, the package will include a bonus poster and the original version of the Space Rangers game.

They also refuse to mention editions like the US version of SpellForce 2 which doesn't use StarForce and the owner of the site insists that its developers and not publishers who are responsible for StarForce spreading.
Ditto Freedom Force vs. the Third Reich, in the US. Why does this site have its priorities screwed up so badly? If the US publisher didn't include Starforce, shouldn't we be rewarding this behavior? If gamers in backwards podunk nations are stuck with publishers enamored with Starforce, then frankly, that's their problem. The logic of punishing developers, who are not the ones making these decisions, is completely baffling, and I really don't know who this list is supposed to be helping.

The page says that contest ended in January. You also had to pay to fly your self to Moscow and pay your own accomodation which would've negated much of the $10K. It was also entirely up to StarForce whether your proof was good enough.
To be fair, they said they'd pay the air fare and lodging for 2 days, and were reasonably specific about the terms. It wasn't a catch-all contest to show that Starforce is bad, but to prove that it would render optical drives inoperable. The contest was still a joke, but eh.

Not that it matters to me at this point, but is there any firsthand confirmation that the NA version does or doesn't have Starforce?
