    I actually downladed the game from bit comet. So i don't have the cab.dat files. Would i be able to make them myself? Or is it too complicated?
    Thanks in advance

    The .dat file will be a custom data file which will contain English localisation details (such as english text for menus and english commentary sound files). You have almost no chance of making it yourself.

    If you want to play the game, buy it. If you're not sure you are going to like it hire it from a video store first to try it, then buy it.
