Summary: I cannot overstate how crappy it is that this game forces you to use Steam. Warning to Mac users: Steam is a PC platform. It has been "adapted" to Mac and other platforms in a very slap-dash way that shows they don't really give a crap. As a result, it is buggy. You get random error messages, buttons don't have text on them, text is buried under overlapping windows so you can't read the info you're supposed to.
Summary: This product was advertised to be compatible with Ubuntu 12.04. It is not. It does not run. I bought this product for my kid. We do not have Windows, only Ubuntu, and so I researched it before buying to verify compatibility. Installing the game is like a game in that you first have to get an account on 'Steam' - a intermediate layer that allows software to run on multiple operating systems. You have to get the account, then download and install it.
Summary: Unfortunately I like this game. This is unfortunate because the delivery system through the Steam connection only works once in a while. If the game were no good then I wouldn't care as much that I can't access it. You know it is funny - I paid for a product without any interest whatsoever in joining some stupid "community" or being exposed to more products, deals, etc.
