Summary: NOTE: As of July 2014 the Gamespy servers were shut down forever. Use GameRanger to play online. I don't know what actually is, probably it's just nostalgia, but I can't think of any bad thing about this game. I enjoyed every single second I've spent on it and I'd recommend everyone to play it. It isn't the most perfect game out there but the whole package is just so excellent that I NOTE: As of July 2014 the Gamespy servers were shut down forever.
Summary: But if you want it as a collectors edition, you cant go wrong. i gave it as a gift. Classic game that spawned 2,3 and now 4. Good thing about this one is that there is no rampant cheating as there is on 2,3 and 4. Entire websites dedicated to cheating.... So go for this one. Its classic.
