Both Steam and retail have SecuROM activation, so I don't really see the benefit of the Steam version in this case. Only difference is whether you want to install a 15GB game from DVD's or download it.

It may come with Securom, but at least you aren't limit to a certain amount of activations with it.

It was worth paying small price for a game that is both addictive and has lots of playability. Something which is sorely lacking in todays games

**** happens man. One time I was looking for a disc for like 5 minutes, sat down *snap* there goes a $40 game. Sometimes you may accidentally hit the disc on the edge of the DVD drive and scuff it making the disc unreadable. There is many unlucky situations that often happen. They may be rare but they can happen. The games are that are in best shape are the ones you have a crack for or never play. Either way it doesn't matter, what ever you prefer is the right choice. You are the one spending the money and you are the one decides what is best for you.

from what i've read, the response to the expansion has been lukewarm. does it add any features to the original game and improve it or are the changes limited to the expansion itself?

It's a new story and afaik does not add anything to the core game. I do not have it myself and cannot get the deal after the christmas madness but it should be a good buy. Legend itself is a golden game, that's for sure and the price of 4€ is insane.
