Do not purchase. Hopefully you are reading this prior to buying the game and not after like I did. If you purchase this you wont be able to play it anyway. so even at $0.99 it is a waste of money. Burn the dollar if you want to get actual entertainment value out of it becuase you will not be able to play this game as the CD keys are mostly broken and you will spend hours of your time trying to get a dollar game to work only to have it not.

As the users her have said steam does not give 2 Sh*ts about the issues with their games and will keep on happily taking your money for a game that doesn't work and they will do nothing about it it. Being that they are too big to fail and one of the only viable options out there, F*cking over a small percentage of the community doesn't really matter to them as it wont have any impact.

So do yourself a favor, no matter how fun the game looks, don't purchase it, be sure to read reviews before you buy things and game on!

Age of Blunder

What could have been a fun game is ruined by the fact that most people cannot get the game to run. If you are lucky enough to play it, you won't be looting any towns with your friends because the Gamespy servers are offline...permanently. Better to save yourself from walking the plank with this mess before you find yourself in Davy Jones' Locker.

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.

This game is fun, but would be so much better with multi-player. Without that option, the game is like masturbation.

There isn't much of a game here, but I'm going to review it anyways.

First off, this is another Capcom game that uses Securom, but unlike Dark Void before it, it doesn't suffer the Securom fate of not finding the cd key in their database. But thats about all the 'good news' this game has going for it.

The game uses Gamespy for it's multiplayer, and well, it doesn't exsist anymore, so you can't play the multiplayer and considering what little single player there is, there is pretty much no game left. There is seven tiny single player missions. None of them are really good. There is a few different difficulty levels, but playing the 'campaign' through on easy, there wasn't really anything there that made me want to challenge myself on harder difficulties.

Don't buy this game, don't make the mistake I did.

Well after inputting the CD key twice, I played the game and there are a grand total of 3 single player challenges if you inclue the tutorial. IF there were multi-player functionality it might be worth a couple of dollars. Otherwise, a complete waste of money.

I have yet to defeat the first Boss battle; SecuROM. I've tried countless tactics and even resorted to looking up cheat codes.

This is a prime example of how not to do DRM. I am a big proponent of good DRM when it is used as a function to benifit both the developers and the consumer (Steam is a great example). When DRM offers consumers no benifit, and becomes an onerous task such as with this game it defeats the purpose of the DRM. It is games like this one that encourage otherwise willing and paying customers to resort to pirating the game just to rid themselves of the challenge of an otherwise simple task; launching the game.

-999/10 - Would not DRM again.

Simple but fun game; short single-player. Tons of potential but not realized. Single-player is frustrating when your AIs do dumb things. Is a lot more fun multiplayer (co-op and versus). Downvote mainly for poor single-player.

There is literally nobody playing this game. You no longer can play it. Don't buy it. You will be wasting your money. Looks really fun, but not playable, so DO NOT BUY.

===!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.

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME IT DOES NOT WORK.
STEAM SUPPORT WILL NOT HELP YOU
(supposedly because it's a securom issue which is "third party")

The game has Securom DRM with limited activations, which is bad enough.
But the key steam gives you isn't even valid, so you can't ever play the game.
Steam Support directs you to a dusty web forum for support.

End result: You got screwed out of your money, and despite multiple people
reporting the same issue to steam support they still sell the game on steam.

Can't play it cuz the code that steam gave me for the game doesnt work, Securcom says its steam, Steam says its not their problem, thats the code they were given; so i'm stuck with a game i bought from STEAM that i cant play - because STEAM can't resolve the issue.
