in the case of not buying the game because you are afraid of getting raped, grab the demo. wait a sec... the demo for this game came out WAY after it was released.
okay.. having said that:
they released the demo real late because they were busy on something else, didnt care to release one, or were afraid the demo would scare a few folks off.
if any of that is correct they just cerated a split of people who will pirate the game, and those who will bite teh bullet and buy it.
if you bite the bullet and buy it and not like it.. you feel slighted.
you can read 1million reviews.. but that still doesnt mean u will agree with the reviwers decision.
i can understand -sometimes- in the right circumstances why people pirate. there has to be a few factors in place to be a concious pirate and not just some lame-o who grabs every ISO just cuz he finally figured out how the newsgroups work.
The amount of damage done to the US in the first week alone has to have China and Russia laughing at us.
