This almost deserves 4 stars for fun and overall ratings, but it has some major flaws.
1.) It has major performance problems.
I have 2Gb memory, striped Raid array of WD Raptor hard drives, and an nVidia GeForce 7950 GX2. And even on the lowest graphical settings it grinds down to 5 frames per second when things get busy...

For anyone who did like those previous games, then I'm glad to report this is an excellent successor, and is the game we've all been… Read more
