Ok, downloading the game is pretty easy. Installing may be a bit troublesome. To play the game, you will need an internet connection. This is done because THQ has no real way to link your account/key code to you since you do not have the actual CD (this is for the people who buy it off Amazon as a download only and not the CD itself. But before that, you will need to patch the game. This "patching" is done rather poorly: over some time, new patches have been released. These patches have to be downloaded in sequential order, which means you will have to download ALL the patches from a p2p website (which the game redirects you to in an easy manner).
Now, I live in my university's campus so I use the internet connection provided here. I could not download the patches at first. I had to fix this by looking for an internet connection with low security, once that was done, it took a while but I got all the patches.
Once I was able to play, I had to create an account linking me to my key code since I purchased it as a "download" game. If you have the disk, you will not need to sign in with an internet connection when you want to play campaign mode.
Now, with that out of the way, it is a very strategic game. It does not have "harvesting" like in Command & Conquer nor Starcraft but it introduces gameplay with territorial control. Everything seems balanced except playing against the computers is rather hard. Overall, very good.

What you need to do is go to http://store.steampowered.com/ and download steam, then once it is downloaded and installed. You have to register your CD key with them. Then they will try to download a new "steam version" of the game, let it. It will install a icon on your desktop. Use that Icon to start up and run the game. What happened is the game switched network servers from Relic to steam, so now it has to be on steams network or it will not work, but this version of the game is not automatically able to update to that point, so you have to do it manually. Your welcome, great game by the way.

This game includes the best RTS engine made (besides shogun 2) and makes you love the feel of the war. Overall the game is captivating and hours will pass by without you noticing. BUY THIS!

Great game at a great price! Beware though, the activation key provided does not register on Steam. Wish it did but ah well. Would have been nice to know in advance. Still the game is well worth it at this price.

I have multiple games in my Amazon.com game library, but this one is the only one which I have trouble starting. It makes no sense that this is intended to be a digital download, thus there is NO DISC with the purchase. Yet after downloading AND installing this, after all that time waiting to download and install, you get a "please insert disc" phrase right when you're eager to get this started. So shameful.

So i digitally downloaded the game but it asks for a disk?!?!?!? That makes no sense and i've searched for answers to solve it and found none. Thanks a lot THQ you really screwed me on this. I'm glad i purchased something that i now have no way to use. if i could give you 0 or negative ratings i would. The game is awesome but whatever you do, dont download it via digital.
