Summary: It Requires an internet connection to play - I got this so I'd have something to do in the field after work - couldn't use it because of the steam dependence. I INSTALL THE INTERNET therefore I cannot connect to it. The game plays well at home but I really have nothing to say good about this DRM stuff. When I'm home I prefer to do something fun on a weekend not be stuck inside all day playing this.
Summary: I gave this as a Christmas gift and I am really regretting that now. Actually, I'm rather mad at Amazon and the publisher for being deceptive about this product. The recipient has been unable to even install the game, on a system that more than met the system requirements listed on the product page. What was not listed was that they would need to have an Internet connection.
Caution: DO NOT purchase this game from an individual!

Summary: The developers of this software do not want people to sell used copies to others. So when you buy a used copy from an individual you will not be able to establish an account and be able to run the software. They will not issue you an account so buying this from an individual is throwing away your money. The only way that you can re-establish an account for a used game is if it is sold through an authorized reseller (like GameStop).
Summary: I bought this game ad had it mailed to me because I have not Internet while at AIT, I bought a hard copy for that reason. It comes in quick only for me to find out its just a front to download from steam, after shipping I saved about .30$. I would of rather paid the extra to git it same day if I had Internet, but I don't so now in have a game i can't play for the next 7 weeks until I have Internet again.
Summary: Got this game in perfect condition but it wouldn't install on my computer. The reason it wouldn't work out is another program called STEAM that had to be installed first, before the game could be. There was no mention of this in any of the game literature that I read before I paid my money and waited a week for delivery. STEAM was supposed to be downloaded over my DSL connection, but the download kept failing and giving me an error message.
Looked good when I got it, but continues to look worse

Summary: I got this specifically for the Left4Dead 2 support, and for the Clang! Kickstarter. Though promised back in May 2012, the L4D2 integrated support is still nowhere to be found. Razer does nothing to support it any more, and SixSense is pretty quiet too. If you are of the mindset to do it, SixSense provides utilities to make your own profile setting to work with various games, and forum posters provide ones for certain games, and that is about it. Clang!
Summary: I purchased this game from Amazon only to find out that the product is not "in the box". The installation CD just leads you to Valve's Steam site where you have to create an account and enter the serial number from the box. Then you have to install Steam. Then Steam will install the actual game. Clumsy, but I can live with that much. The problem is that the game crashes shortly after startup. I have been back and forth with Steam support, only to get canned replies.
