Description Austin English (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2017-02-09 23:24:36 UTC
This package has no local mode, and AFAICT requires the gamespy servers to be up to be functional.

These servers were shut down nearly two years ago, so this game can't be played (unless looking at the main menu counts as 'playing'.

Requesting that it be p.masked / purged.
