I normally never say this but you should actually pirate the game and have a go at it. I think you're letting the marketing and discourse intimidate you far too much. The game was designed to be beaten and if you really had a go at it you might be surprised at how far you will get. It's this attitude that so many of us ITT have a problem with, you aren't even willing to try. I'll say it again, no one is born with inherent game skill that never changes, you can rise to the challenge.
