    1) Cf. organized crime
    2) yes
    3) this is just an ad word, like "Deluxe", "Pro Edition", "Millenum" etc.
    4) Check out our exclusive preview (they could get their hands on the product, before it comes out).

    cf., cf [Show phonetics]
    FORMAL
    used in writing when you want the reader to make a comparison between the subject being discussed and something else
    2) anticipated title = people (gamers) are anxious to see what it's like. Title = the game itself.
