I recently bought a used copy of Red Alert 2. Since it got good reviews from IGN, I figured it'd be worth picking up.
The CD's are in great shape for a used game, as is the CD case (which is a sleek DVD-Style case too!)
So, I tried to install it... and it asked for the serial number. I all cool-like look at the case, and; ... nothing there. Huh. There's no instruction booklet either, and no serial number inside the box. I didn't get the serial number with my game!!!
Annoyed, I write a hillarious letter to Westwood asking for a serial number or... I RETURN IT! *Gasp!* They tell me they can't give it to me.
And moreover, EB doesn't really want it back either, and if I do return it, I can only get in-store credit minus the tax! BAH! You'd think after selling me a faulty product, they'd HAVE to take it back...
I'm making a resolution to never buying a used game again. But hey, I picked up the original Baldur's Gate game when I was at EB, so I have that to play, at least...
