    … and I mean it. It isn’t one you will play every day, but occasionally it will suck you in so bad for a few days that you will miss some serious sleep. It is really fun and very high quality. Works perfectly on my Debian Woody system. Greatly recommended. A fantastic game, makes a good break from FPS games.
