Hey y'all. Just got my copy of JKII today (I live in Portugal) and first off, I wish to thank and congratulate Raven for all the EXCEL work on the game. It's by far, GOTY material!

Well, I saw some people here wanted this so here it goes:

LIMITED WARRANTY: Activision warrants to the original consumer purchaser of this Program that the recording medium on which the Program is recorded will be free from defects in material and workmanship for 90 days from the date of purchase. If the recording medium is found defective within 90 days of original purchase, Activision agrees to replace, free of charge, any product discovered to be defective within such period upon its receipt of the Product, postage paid, with proof of the date of purchase, as long as the Program is still being manufactured by Activision.

This warranty is limited to the recording medium containing the Program as originally provided by Activision and is not applicable to normal wear and tear.
