Europeans can buy the game also via atari through their digital dowload service. I did and it worked, alltough I choose the US site

You can rid off the aliasing by choosing one of the combined AA modes via nHancer.(8xS or 8xSQ)
I don't know why AA don't mix with SSAO?

It's only on the US page;

http://www.atari.com/us/

I managed to buy it, even without proxyservers and pointing to my home country when gooing through the payingproces. I don't know if it's a hole in their buying system, but I got the game
Remember I choose the digital download purchase, maybe that's the difference.

How is that a rip-off? That's what games cost in the US. Unless you mean digital should be cheaper, which I agree with.

He should of used something other than "$" ifhe was reffering to the Euro or something... he shows it as $50 plus tax, which is exactly what I paid.

And aren't Euro prices higher anyway?

Even if it was $70 or $80 I would still say the game is worth it
