Great game HORRIBLE set-up
on May 20, 2013
If you want to play this game, you have to have at least an hour to kill for the set-up. First you need an Amazon account (OK, if you are here, you probably already have that), a steam account, and two separate Microsoft accounts (Games for Windows, and some other account I don't remember the name of). This involves all the set-up, email verification, Captcha, etc., downloading, installing, accepting of terms and conditions, updating, verifying the updating, etc. etc. that you can imagine. Then when you finally get to install the game, (after downloading it, of course) then there are a bunch of updates etc. that call for a system reboot etc. etc. etc. etc. You also need at least two separate activation codes (maybe more, I don't remember) and the silliest thing is an interface where you can't even copy/paste the activation code, but you have to type it in by hand (and you can't see the code because the activation screen is full-screen). When you are finished, you have an excellent game that is only ruined by the continual crashing of Games for Windows (or whatever the damn thing is called).
I think re-installing an operating system takes less time. This is absolutely ridiculous. Next time, I will just go directly to Steam and pay a little more.
