The catapults, the laughs of the brutal green pigs give out an eerie aura to the whole atmosphere which is very scary to say the least. Just kidding!

The whole game is online, your game progress is automatically saved, no hassles.

Now it proceeded to the next step, I selected Broadband, other option being Home Network. My LAN card was configured by the installer. In my opinion this was the only useful work it did. Then it asked me to connect my modem so that it could be detected and the registration completed with my UserID and Password. But my modem was not detected .
