This game looks amazing, and the lite version was great. Too bad I've got no money =(
Shouldve waited for NFS to go on sale...

Happy to see the missle aiming got a fix. But I have a couple of problems:

When I select an ant, it selects another one instead. (happened in 1.0 sometimes)

When I called an airstrike, it went to another direction other than where the reticle was. (didn't have this in 1.0, but I'll see if it can be reproduced)

After finishing a match in campaign mode, the game crashes before I get a chance to get to the map.

Any plans for an online mode? Without it, I don't see the draw of the game. Get that in before Worms comes out, which will likely destroy this game.

How is this game overall? I read some pretty negative reviews when it first came out. Has something changed within the game to warrant a purchase?
