Probably. Good deal.

Crappy Game.co.uk! I tried 3 different cards and the site keeps giving errors. Cards work on other sites.

Why are there so many self-righteous, sensitive 'deal posters' on this … Why are there so many self-righteous, sensitive 'deal posters' on this site? The accepted wisdom appears to be that if a 'price comparison' website affirms that there is no cheaper alternative, the offering de facto becomes beyond reproach and immediately the narcissistic, didactic tones are adopted. It is amusing that this is almost exclusively regarded as the barometer of objectivity and that participators are exhorted to subscribe to this limited interpretation (best manifested under the canonical, "If cold then where cheaper?" et al). It sits nicely with the misplaced atmosphere of interventionism that pervades this country. Is diffidence and the yearning for uniformity so endemic amongst certain contributors that a tacit and independent expression of sentiment is deemed to be offensive?



Oh dear did you spend all that time on that post for little old me. Nothing self righteous about it, it's clearly what happens here, log off.:roll:

OO clean up on aisle 3. Shame these guys don't take paypal.

OOS the 'Ultimate' extras sounded like junk anyway for a £10-12 premium.

Not really. Perhaps its a case of ppl not wanting to pay £19.99 for a series that run its course a long time ago, with extras that aint too hot & doesnt play too good on a consoles controller

Nail + Head.

Tried it on 360 and the controls were pretty awful. RTS on console CAN work (albeit not as good as on PC) but the devs seem to feel the need to dumb it down giving it a clumsy interface.

RTSs on consoles imo work FAR better if they are simply just a port. The cursor needs to be just that, a cursor, not a daft selection drawing thing they continue doing. It makes selecting units quite difficult.

Warzone 2100 back in the day used simple controls and was perfect even on console :thumbsup:

Controls are fine on both, there not the same as a PC, nor are the games as big.

But this version has improved graphics as well as extras to the Xbox. HD quality.

The same keeps happening to me! It's frustarting to pre-order at a good price then find out a day before dispatch that the order has been cancelled.

i know it's expired, but anyone care to tell me whether or not you can use your mouse + keyboard on this game on the PS3 ?

Didn't spot the enhanced graphics :thumbsup:

But as for controls.. I mean the cursor control rather than the menu system (that works quite well)

Point and click not point and paint predetermined circle sizes over a minority of your available units. If you've never played an RTs on PC before then it probably isn't noticed but otherwise you feel hugely handicapped and for no reason.
