    I actually bought this for use on my laptop when I am on nights, most places I do not have net access

    I don't have this game but does the box not say anything about needing Steam and a internet connection

    You only need net access to activate the game (and Steam). Once it is activated, you can put the game into offline mode. Note that you have to be online in order to put the game into offline mode.

    As far as expensive games are concerned, you don't really pay much for the CD or DVD; what you are paying for is the license. That's why many places don't have a problem sending you a duplicate CD for next to nothing (usually just shipping). Most will invite you to download an image for free. Even Microsoft does this.

    what the box says, in VERY small print is that:

    product offered subject to acceptance of Steam Agreement and I must activate product via the internet by registering for a steam account and accepting the SSA.

    Thats all it says.

    I am registered with Steam and did register product. Now it tells me I am not ready to play???

    Glad it worked out. Human Revolution is one of my favorite games. I got the entire series for about $12 US during the Steam Holiday Sale (which, by the way is of the 4 best times to purchase Steam games--the others being the Spring, Summer and Fall sales).

    If they exist, cheat codes would probably be available on the Internet somewhere. I don't think that the game actually has any.

    You got me. The only user.ini file I found, was for Deus Ex, but not Human Revolution. All of the settings for Steam games are in one folder. Find your Steam Folder. Under that, there is a folder called SteamApps. This is where all of your games from Steam are installed. I have four Deus Ex games, so there is a folder for each one (Missing Link is part of Human Revolution, so it is under the same folder as HR).
