The first and only retail version of the game.
NOTE: If you have a gamepad plugged in, the in-game menus will be uncontrollable. The only current workaround is to unplug the gamepad. See bug 7800 below for more information.

Actual game, multiplayer mode.
What does not
Online features, joysticks/gamepads.
What was not tested
Nothing I know of.
Graphics could be improved, Flash support needs to be added for online features and registration feature in the installer to work, and bug 7800 (joysticks/gamepads returning up axis movement uncontrollably) needs to be fixed ASAP. Otherwise, the game runs fine.
