Why you may want to wait for the Battlefront release
I recently purchased the Australian release and would probably advise those in the UK/US to wait for the Battlefront release here's why...
-It's fairly expensive when including postage to the US/UK
-Import duty + a large handling charge may be added when your game arrives in the UK (not sure about US rules).
-The Australian release has Starforce protection
-Some of the non mission critical crew audio chatter is still in Russian no matter which nation you are playing as.
-The mission translations are not all they could be (the destroyer is still "sinked" rather than "sunk" etc).
-There is rather annoying bug occasionally in the tactical map which sometimes stops you moving waypoints around.
Hopefully the Battlefront release/ a future patch will attend to these mostly minor issues. On the plus side if you have the Australian release the guys at the Australian publisher n3vrf41l.com seem to be very responsive.
