    If you ever fancy giving it a go I have an outfit and website on the european server , were all friendly guys and would show anyone around the game no problem .(and you will need help at first as theres a lot to take in )
    but once you have your weapons and vehicals your away

    It has had many changes in the last few days and it really is a truly an amazing game .

    When your in a battle of 150 guys its a real sight and feels truly breathtaking .

    even if you wanted to play just for the 30 days free you cant go wrong .

    its pretty resource hungry though you do need 512 of ram and a decent internet connection .

    some nice screenshots and this happens all the time these arnt few and far between

    Just tried logging on to Gamespot to download the s/w and it was so sloooooooow. I have a 2MB ADSL connection and it said it was gonna take something like 340 hours. Needless to say I cancelled it. Not sure if I'll buy it (from Game or Amazon) but if I do I'll look you up.

    wow thats amazing !!!

    I dont blame you mate thats a bit silly .

    I know some of the other guys I know have downloaded it Ill ask them how long they took just out of interest but im sure it wasnt that long .

    Ill post when I find out .

    Yes by all means give me a shout if you buy it . Im 34 been buying games for years but this really freaked me out when I started playing it .

    all the guys in the screenshots are real people there is no AI I know thats common now but when a massive battle happens its a great sight .

    I'm only on a 512k connection, I've downloaded 500mb's of it and it says 6 hours to go which is not too bad.

    thats more like it , Crazy these things .

    When you start the game it will ask you which faction you would like to join , TR (Terran Republic) NC (New Conglomerate) or VS (Vanu Soveregnty ) .

    These are the 3 battling factions .

    Myself and my outfit are NC (were blue and yellow) if anyone would like to join the same faction that would be cool .

    (but even if you dont want to you can still message me and ill help you out )

    my ingame name is redwing .

    to send a message type /tell redwing ......

    im only writing this to help anyone out as ive been playing a long time .
    no probs if you have your own arrangments

    Downloaded it but don't they have not sent me the account key for it. Tried two other email addresses and still no account key has been sent through, pain in the neck after such a large download.

    Had to pause mine loads of time (damned XBL :D) so still about 6 hours to go. Like British rail, it's getting there :) Already got my PS reg code so no worries there.

    I've been to their support site and asked about the lack of key for the game there but so far only an automated response, filled out the form to get the key a couple more times and still no key in my in box. Looks like they just don't like me :)

    Thanks, for that. Still no key or word back from support, I'm looking forward to having a shot as well, it might be able to tear me away from PGR2.

    Download finished here mid afternoon but not had chance to install yet. NOt sure whether to install on my office machine and play on standard monitor or install on the HCPC and play on the 8ft screen.

    Can I install on both machines using the same key? That would ideal then I can play in the comfort of the office or on the big screen when desired with the full sound system.

    Installed it, tried it. Not for me I'm afraid. Just too many key presses, map options, slowdowns due to other activities on the PC. It's sticking to consoles for me. Thanks.

    Now I've just gotta work out how I cancel the subscription and ensure my card does not get charged after 30 days.

    Support told me to create a new station account, which I did. Went to the game download screen and out in my email address and again no reply from them with the key. Very strange.

    Messiah, I've PM'd you.

    sorry I wasnt on to reply

    just to let anyone know dont put in your real details just stick in 1111111111 so that way it cant take the money out after the free trial and it works fine .

    sorry you didnt like it Messiah .

    If you ever do get a bit of free time before you cancel would love to show you about .

    Im a console gamer this is the only PC game I play and I dont like keyboards but you really dont use many keys i think i use 5.

    You will get used to it in a couple of days if not mate ill have to catch you on xbox live ,but im still waiting for a game i want to play live .

    They have some great games that I play but not that I want to play live at the mo .

    Already deleted it I'm afraid. Managed to eventually find a link to cancel the subscription cos I was stupid enough to pit real cc details in. Doh!

    Catch u on Live. Tried Rainbow Six 3 or Counter Strike? PGR2 is awesome too.

    Im not really a fan of driving games I had PGR1 I thought it was great but just not for me .

    Also played Rainbow 6 I had it on PC but deleted it just because Planetside was much faster and Im now so used to the big battles i love 150 a side massive battles now commanding my squad in a total War is just fantastic .

    not played the famous Counter strike on X box ill have to give it a try .

    Im still buying games for my consoles but pretty addicted to PS

    and I hate keyboard playing lol
