I’m milling around the mall today and I spot Scrapland in the bargain bin for $4.99. I’m thinking to myself: I avoided this game on purpose when it was new. Why was that again? Annoying missions? Erm. Dumb plot? I don’t think so. Ah well, you can’t go wrong for a fiver. Even if it sucks.
I get it home and make with the installing. Once it’s all done I try to run the game. It says I need to reboot to finish installing the “Protection System”. Ah DANGIT!
Now I remember why I’d been avoiding it. Now it’s too late.
Note to American McGee and the goofs at Enlight software: Nobody wants to steal your lackluster game. Get over yourselves.
