took over 2.5 hours, just to wait in line, when it did come out, over on file planet, with dsl, lot of good dsl does, when you have to wait anyway. The game is a little buggy, as they said. It Actually froze my system! (Athlon 700, 256 pc 100, SB Live, GE Force2 Anihilator2 by Creative, Windows ME,(no other game has frozen). Quake3 Arena rocks on my system, UT rocks on it. Lots of choppy connection issues, and I have dsl, i was in a server with a 56 ping, or so it said. I emailed the people that made this game, so they can use for the fixes. Graphics are very good. Sound is awesome. the bombs going off in the distance, sweet. well worth it, the wait that is. When they fix this crap, it'll rock. Facing Worlds is getting old, gotta have Something New to mesmerize myself.
