STEAM Required, huh? I have to pass then.
I was interested in this game, until I discovered that STEAM is required to play it. In November 2004, I purchased Half-Life 2 (Collector's Edition) from GameStop. I've never even so much as seen the game menu for Half-Life 2. Why? Because STEAM won't allow it. It just pops up error message after error message. Three years after purchasing that game, I got a new computer and one of the first things I did was try to play Half-Life 2 again. STEAM pops up error after error, basically informing me that I am still not permitted to play the game I purchased. DRM like STEAM (and the many, many other types) have effectively driven me further and further away from the PC platform.
