Unhappy Early copies of Doom 3

OK…Doom3 was released yesterday (8/3/04) and I got it and love it!!! It scared the living crap out of me when I was playing it last night, with the sound turned up and alone.

I recorded my first comment on Amazon and when I was reading other user’s comments, I got confused. There were a number of comments that stated something like…”I been playing for 2 days” or “I been playing for 3-14 hours” and the kicker is that these people’s reviews were posted on 8/1 and 8/2. How is that possible? Are these people stealing copies of the game somehow? Do they work at game stores and get early copies? Are they beta testers? I thought beta testers weren’t allowed to comment on the game in public?

Does any have an insight to this issue?

before the official release, someone (somehow) pirated copies onto the internet and distrubuted them free dunno why, but that's what happened

LOL! But that would not be very honourable would it?

Well I saw copies of Doom three probably in July Its like 1.5 gigs which isnt bad. I didnt download it cuz I already had a copy coming. Plus its Illegal. Which I learned the hard way isnt allways safe.

Hopefully I wont get in trouble for this but I shouldnt. I will hint at the location which you can find all these games. Its starts with SUPR then ends with NOVA and is followed up with a .org
