If you get the free version working correctly then go for it, but don't be surprised if you have trouble entering servers. 2 of my friends downloaded a free version, but couldn't ever get into a server, no matter what patch they used. As soon as they bought the game off Steam and installed it all correctly, never had a problem again.
I'll buy it from Steam but need to wait till Friday for payday. We should start an ISH clan dude. I don't want to play this game solo.
