the main issues with games, are that sometimes windows updates something, which brakes something else, maybe something as simple as reinstalling the game pre requisites, or uninstalling the game, making sure the game folder is clear and empty and also the doc's folder one if made, making sure you back up any saves you want first, then reinstall, which on steam loads all the pre requisites any way each and every time,
as per this post if your on windows 10 etc and the steam version
just DONT download the tool is suggests either or any tbh, as none,. i repeat none are needed, as it's not needed and is just spam and a way it makes money etc, so link and information good, cr@p which comes with it, bad
most disk versions are a waste of space, as there not up to date and will need to be updated as soon as installed, by the date shown on the installer and your's on the pc, part of a lot of problems with disk and dvd versions, there never the latest ones and will always need to be kept upto date, as most if not all will check on loading if there's a newer version out and some won't even play if the answer is yes, not all, some mind you.
having a online connection is part of the security now days for some games, and a way of keeping it up to date, not just wish updates, but the cr@p most now days wish to spam you with once bought, so not surprised it won't let you install, with no net access, as some games refuse to work without it, but that has to be mentioned on the box before hand, so maybe you either just didn't read it, like i never do, or it's not mentioned so well
