I'm really confused here, so many people are now playing Clear Sky - but here in the US they're holding out and we don't get it until the 15th of this month (next monday)
So will the US Version be different from any/all other countries? Cause right now the game sounds like a big dissapointment.

The Uk and Us versions should be identical in terms of the game, thought they use different copy protection systems.
The Russian version is different from the others though.
The russian version is was a crash-test to see if anything needs changing. Now i wonder? Are the russians disappointed too? I ain't saying that anyone IS actually disappointed (except me.... ..... .... maybe), but i think the game will fail in USA. And i really doubt that an uber-fix-all-patch will be released by next monday. The game needs some REAL reconstructions, be prepared to endulge yourself into a battle you may lose. You need two things- Nerves of steel, and a lot of free time. ALTOUGH ... - - - - - I Suggest that you buy it, play it and ... either bury it or glorify it. See for yourself.
I don't suggest buying this game until a few months otherwise you will experience blissful dissappointments and brain melting bugs.
On the other hand, the modding community will undoubtable fix the game up nicely. I think that playing the game for what it is before mods improve it, will make you appreaciate the mod author's work all the more.
As soon as I finish I'm going to start modding what I can, and hopefully the more experienced among us will do the same.
I say buy the game now, play it, put it away for a while. When the mods start rolling out, put it back on and see the improvement.
They already released a 2nd patch for the Russian version, so I'm guessing that's the one you mean. I have the Russian version and playing in the USA and I don't see a real issue with 1.00 except a few crashes to desktop every now and then. I do see a few bugged quests though. But what is so different in the Russian version compared to the UK/US versions ???
Dunno, haven't played russian version. Maybe you can find it on the net, somebody probably talked about it... Check some of the russian webpages (translate with google) and you will know for sure... @soul_purifier; completely right, but you know how hard it is to wait? Altough love - knows no time.... Hehehe
im buying CS no matter what. SHOC only ctd on me once at 1.0000.
Seeing as the game doesn't come out in here (in the US) til this monday - the new patch released today? looks like a mighty improvement!

Game is already out, in Canada had it the 8th as did some Americans on the GSC forum. I have to say I am loving it, just the few minor issues I have had appear to be fixed in the upcoming patch. :cool:
