1. Average disc 'checking' takes 25 odd seconds, but around 1 in 4 times it takes 70 seconds, and around 1 in 6 start-ups give me enough time to make a cuppa and get back before failing. Strangely ejecting the disc solves this.:sleepey:

2. The location of the 'non-working' cancel button on the 'checking' dialog is over the 'Retry' button. Nice USE-case analysis work there, strangely in contrast to the rest of the product quality! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/think.gif" alt="" /> Goes to show, the SF part was put on by the publisher.

I have posted this, simply because the 'game' loads faster than the 'checking' takes, making SF a non-brain part of the OOB experience that spoils an otherwise excellent game.

Start out poorly to begin with, that way when you get the hang of it and jump the leader they get a bigger surprise.
