  • Act of war: High Treason

    It's available now for direct download from "Direct2Drive" for $39.99. Has anyone ever used this service? It's not available in stores until may. I'm not sure how I feel about this service, anyone have any experience?

    Magnum has used it several times, and likes the service, as I recall. I have yet to take the plunge myself, but after installing 3 games with 11 discs, you can bet I will soon.

          I use direct2drive for games that I want to play, but feel they may not be worth keeping forever... If theres a game I know I will love like SWAT, I'll buy the in store version just to have a hard copy... but games that I will only play through once, twice, or maybe three times...my lady...oh sorry...

          I buy from direct2drive, like FEAR... fear is a great game, but once I played through it once I was done... I knew because of the demo, Lockdown may suck, so I bought that digital version just to play it for the review, if I would of been wrong and it was great, would of then bought a hard copy...

          It's a pretty good idea to have broadband to use that service... with my cable it usually takes about 2 hours to download a game that is around 4 to 5 gigs, then you simply extract the file and double click the set up, it installs same as a CD version...

          It should be noted that you can't download a game then install it on more then one computer, usually... it only allows an install on one computer, so if you install it, then get a new PC, you have to e-mail them and ask for it to be re-activated for a new PC.

          Good luck.

            I just got my copy of Act of war from D2D. Not that bad of a service however Steam is better. Cheaper prices and you can load the game on as many computers as you want. Took about an hour to get the whole expansion.

            I am loving it. I don't know what to play more though Harvest Moon or AOW.

              Thanks everyone. I just finished installing it, and had no problems. The only thing that stinks is the 1 computer limitation. Pretty painless though. Thanks again. Back to the single player, i think i miss the campy live action scenes!

                RGM, do you have AOW: Direct Action installed still? I cannot seem to find if you need the original to play High Treason. I want to get rid of that 6gb if I don't need it.

                  ^^^^I have the DA installed but it looks like it might be stand alone. I don't see anything mentioned about needing the orginal at D2D.

                      wooow gotta get this one... i was wondering why people on Atari forums talk about the full game, i thought it was beta.

                      Thanks for the heads up.

                        ^^^^Also its out in the EU so they may have imported it.

                        Let me know when you get it so we can get some games in. I promise I will pry myself off of Harvest Moon.

                          GM_Custom aren't ya like on the top of the ladder? I saw a TG tag on the top of the ladder... Can't remember who... In that case I am terrified by you.

                          I played single player to death and tried MP couple of times but everytime I get my butt whooped.

                          NOTE: Forums say HT is not a stand alone... You do need DA to play. I have not installed it myself yet... Can't wait... All the butterflies.
