I got the retail version and the game doesn't install from dvd but downloads the whole game. Is that normal? I had the same prob with Homefront retail. Is it posssible that I changed an option in the steam settings by accident?

That shouldn't happen, it should be installing and then updating any outdated files.

Are you sure you aren't just using the cd key to activate the product on steam? If that's it, then steam will download it. Just let the autorun go and it should install from the DVD. If this isn't the problem, I'm not sure.

I just put in the dvd and the autorun wanted the key, then it started downloading at once. It only took 30 minutes but I'd like to know for later.

I had a similar issue but it was due to the fact of Steam servers being busy. I tried installing it, it failed from cd then it started downloading. All I did to fix it was to delete game local content and then ran the autorun again (this time steam servers weren't busy) which installed the game, all that was left was to download the remaining bits of the game which was like only 600 mbs.

My guess is that they have separate servers to check to see if the CD you have is valid and not pirated.
