Hi,

Thinking of buying this game. Is it one where I need the physical shipment? I suppose my definition would be "does it have a printed manual which is so useful that I'll want it on paper", else I'll do digital dowload.

Thanks for advice.

Hi Jon,

The manual is not printed and the in-game Galactopedia and Tutorial cover most of what you need. The physical copy would be mainly handy for archival purposes, but you can also burn your download install file to a backup CD if you prefer.

Regards,

- Erik

Perfect answer, Erik. Thanks. You will receive my order on this one in due course (I take a long time, but I will do it )

Ha, ha, dare I say it, I have also posted the same question in the Forge of Freedom forum because I am considering getting that, plus (no advertising!) I am similarly tempted (with same question) for "Dominions 3" (bit late to the party on that one) elsewhere!

I know I will be getting DW, because everyone says it's a worthy successor to MoO2, and I have waited long enough for that!

I can vouch for Dominions 3, it's overpriced for an older game, but it's very fun! (Get DW first though ;)

Let's assume I shall be purchasing both, so no need for a sales competition (though I do agree the price of the older game niggles).

Why should I get/play DW first? Or was that just intended as a supportive comment?
