I buy a game on Steam, I expect to be able to install it as many times as I like, however with this game I found out it uses Securom and you have a limited number of third party activations. Once I got past all the cd-key entering BS (there's a screen where you can't copy & paste), I come to find out multiplayer doesn't work properly, was hoping they had fixed it by now.

Maybe I'll get lucky and it won't activate again if I uninstall it again.

Warning - do not purchase this game. It utilizes Gamespy servers and gamespy has shutdown! Not only that, but it uses Securom.

This is why you don't buy a game without looking into it a bit first. The stupid key doesn't work. Apparently Valve won't do anything about it either. Get yourself together Valve.

They've resolved the serial code issue and this game would be a ton of fun, but there's no multiplayer support. That's the main point of the game, so I don't even think it's worth the $1 without it. What a shame because this seamed like a lot of fun.

===!DO NOT BUY!===

This game requires a Gamespy account to play! Gamespy no longer exists!

This needs to be removed from Steam immediately as it is literally unplayable.

I bet steam can make alot of money distributing cheap games that don't work knowing full well no one is going to contact the developer of a 5+ year old game that cost $1. Steam won't take any ownershlp for unsupported games that they sell to unsuspecting customers.

The game works for me. Steam should give you a 16-digit alpha-numeric code when you purchase. Put that in the Securom (grey pop up) box in the blank line. Don't worry about the other long code (25 or 30 chars), it's generated by them to verify the game. After successfully going through this process once, you should be good. It won't happen every time you launch.

The Gamespy servers are off, so there's no multiplayer, leaderboards, or map generator, which does suck, but you'll be able to get a dollar's worth from the 21 pre-built scenarios.

If Steam could somehow separate the Gamespy servers from the game, even just to open the map generator, that would add a lot. Single players could generate their own maps and choose the number of AI players and win conditions. Is that remotely possible from a programming standpoint?

Multiplayer uses Gamespy so doesn't work, no LAN option either. C'mon Capcom fix it, get some good PR for a change! :)

I wish that I knew before I picked this up that it was a SecureROM DRM'd game before I bought it. I had to try to jump through hoops just to start playing and, in the end, gave up before I actually got to play. Isn't Steam enough DRM?

I'd pass on this, if for no other reason than to send a message to the developer/publisher to stop requiring this sort of thing.

You can't play mulitplayer or create your own maps because it uses Gamespy. So you get about 2 hours out of the game and that is about it. Potential but lacking.

Potentially good fun but when fullscreen the mouse cursor disappears... so I had to play in a window, which made finding the edge of the screen to scroll around the map very difficult and frustrating. Unfortunately unplayable.

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!

I had read on the forums that they fixed the issues, and that it was now playable. This is NOT true. The game CTD crashes to desktop the moment you start it. Capcom doesn't care, and neither does Steam. I've lost faith if both companies. Apparently there is no refund.
