I looked it up on Amazon and the cheapest copy is...$240...I just want to play this game again, I loved it and haven't played in years. Anyone know where I can buy a brand new copy?

Brand new is going to be hard to find. Ebay has a number of "Like New" copies.

Brand new? Forget it. $240 is way too much but if you check out the used ones right here on Amazon you will find them mostly under $100. I still think that is too high but that's just me.

But I would buy a used one in a minute. Get some CD disc cleaner and you should be good to go.

Well I have my original discs, I guess I could clean those with some CD cleaner. I've never used some before, is there a specific brand you would recommend?

No, not really. If there is a Best Buy in your area try to get a CD cleaning kit there or places like Target or Staples will have them too.

Edit: I forgot to say, give this a shot first. The best that can happen is that is fixes the problem and you don't have to fork over money for this game. But at least you'll have a CD cleaner for your other discs.

honestly if you've still got your codes, just try to make images of the discs. if you're lucky enough to know someone near you that has them...well put two and two together. but that's all we can say about that.

Try your local library. Mine has the game. Just keep checking out and renewing it. I doubt there will be anyone else trying to do the same.

Wow, only $200 for this one! I got a feeling he will be hanging on to that copy for a long time.

Figured out it's not my discs, it's the Superdrive on my Mac. Won't play anything else either.

Video rental places sometimes offer disc spinning and cleaning for like $5, if anything. Some Gamestops do it now, too.

Also, in regards to the library, you could check it out, keep the discs and replace them with your bad discs and return it saying it doesn't work. (:
