As per Oggy, why worry about Steam... install it and then decide if you want to authenticate your copy by having the DVD in the drive or online each time you play the game. No Steam required!

Struggled with this a little... would no internet connection for online authentication mean you were unable to play single player while offline? I figured that was the case and opted for DVD authentication. Sure there will be a no DVD patch sometime. What did others decide?

But it has to authenticate via Internet... so it's a catch 22... you have no internet so you want to play single player but without a connection it will not run!

once its installed, has done its date check and everything, then its fine with no web connection. I have to have it working with no web connection because Vodafone have put all their resources into making sure that everyone knows Telecoms network falls over, while neglecting to make sure their own network remains operational, as happened here last night! Hence no one collected any tags from me after about 6pm last night!
