I don't know about DRM. I didn't have to use a disk. It was through game fly I think.

The collector's edition is just about as good as mmixx. I think if you like the basic game it doesn't matter what version.

mmixx has some good little things like fixing the vale of ruin spots where you get stuck in the floor. The mini map is also better so it is easier to find your way say in the naga temple.

All in all I vote both. If you like the game you'll like either. Most people don't like Dungeon Lords but I have a soft spot for it!

thanks for fast answer...but what about the semplification with skill\levelling system and customization of characyter? there are players that play this version for co -op? is co-op different form the previous one? thanks

The character system is much simpler in MMXII. Instead of having skill requirements for each class (that might take you forever to achieve), you just have class requirements.

I'm with Claudius that you could go with the CE or MMXII. I like the game mechanics better in the CE, but MMXII has the better interface. If you really want to play in widescreen, then MMXII is your only option.

I'm not sure if there's a big co-op community for Dungeon Lords. Co-op hasn't really worked well in any version of the game.

I vote CE. MMXII was a disappointment, with the simplified leveling system and the quest items sticking forever in your inventory. Don't forget the paperthin armour & weapons, which loose durability faster than you can blink.
