I bought this game when it was launched, and later on the expansion, Ice and Blood. I had lots of fun with my friends at darkmatters (the best S2 community if I may add) and with tons of regret saw the S2 online servers shutting down. I still have all my high-level online characters, which the developers cleverly allowed us to save to the PC, rather than just have them go to waste.
I wonder, will the retail keys be accepted in Steam in the future? Being able to go for a few anchievements sounds like the thing which may just bring that S2 itch back :)
