Whatīs the price?
Personally, it didnīt put me off buying ANW. Beware, that there are many bugs. If I hadnīt known the bug list,
probably I would have got annoyed after buying it, but so I knew what to expect.
I donīt know what other people think about, but I like reading artistic verbal battles, without bashing each other.
Itīs true, sometimes itīs more funny than playing a game (as long as Iīm not getting angry).
And even better than a dead forum.
After playing ANW for some weeks I got the ctd issue too. I didnīt care much about, cause my system is outdated (lack of memory, perhaps) on the other hand it happens with ported scenīs (and that coud be many!).
I did not have the time to go deeper and it would lead far away from topic.
Some evenings (after work and tired) started with playing ANW, after some ctdīs and no desire to check my whole system, I switched to other games. Iīm sure Iīm not alone with that expierence. This can be dissapointing after investing 1h or more for mission planning, only to get ctdīs after pushing the start button. Then searching for scenīs that are working the right way.
Iīm not the guy to give up soon but maybe there are some folks out there banging their head against walls after this kind of experiences.
I wrote that only to show, that ctdīs arenīt a single experience, maybe I drifted away .
