    Sounds like a failed installation. Try to reinstall the game and hope it works. With bad luck it might be the download/DVD that's corrupt.

            Don't know what else to tell you but to return the game and try to get a replacement.

              Yeah, sounds like a corrupt DVD to me too in that case.

                  Congratulations!

                  Coming to think of it I had installation errors as well, but that was failure to accept my CD key. I solved it by copy-pasting the content of the DVD to HDD and installing it from there. Worked like a charm :o

                  Probably my DVD player that's getting old and worn out :(

                    there is sometimes some compatabily problems with older DVD drives, so that could have been a problem, but glad you got it sorted out!

                    see you on the battle field soon!
