    "You know that saying... If it looks too good to be true"

    January 21, 2013  |   By noxmiles


    It probably is.

    No "pros" to report here. Except for the fact that I can rate a "0.5" star here :P


    1.) You're only getting a free trial here (yeah the other reviews were not kidding) - you'd have to pay ~$19 for the full version, which I highly do not recommend.

    2.) It comes with spyware. It'll even tell you that it's gonna install spyware on your computer. If you refuse, no download. Perfect trade-off if you ask me.


    If you want to safely enjoy this game, get a PS2, then get the PS2 version. You can never go wrong there.

    I don't even know why CNET still has this here... You would think a website dedicated to computers would discourage this sort of junk. Sure glad I got a good anti-malware program (even though you can also uninstall the spyware from your computer - probably the reason why this thing's justified...)

    TL;DR - Don't. Download. This. Move along now.
