I started downloading the game yesterday here at the office and after about 66% was downloaded we lost our DSL for a few hours.
It took about 2 hours to get 66%, and I restarted the download this morning and it took about 1 1/2 hours to finish. ( It restarted at like 33% ) If it would have downloaded all in one shot I estimate it would have taken about 3 hours with our DSL connection.
I must say this... BEAUTIFUL GRAPHICS!!! I am VERY impressed. The voices so far are wonderful also. I only played for a few minutes because I was in the middle of reading about Britney having to give up her kids to Kevin Federline and of course I had to finish. I then wanted to jump on here and give my 2 cents about my first impression of the game. I'm foregoing starting my 3rd episode on CSI so I can immerse myself in Cleopatra for a few hours. Buy it! Download it!
* Side note - I got the error also at the end of the download but when I clicked on the installation thingy it installed perfectly. I agree with the previous poster that the error message in itself seems to be an error. I also waited until this morning to pay for the game and I had my activation code sent within a few minutes. They seem to have resolved the delay in sending activation codes also. Off to play now!
