Product Description

Take on the fight as the volatile Sergeant "Psycho" Sykes in a new parallel story taking place during the events of Crysis. Psycho's secret mission will take him to the other side of the island on a ruthless pursuit of a North Korean general hell-bent on obtaining powerful technology. With the versatile powers of his Nanosuit and an arsenal of fully customizable weapons & vehicles at his disposal, Sykes will do whatever it takes to carry out his top-secret objective. Action on the other side of the island is more intense, the battles are fierce, and the mission protocol is no longer "Adapt to Survive". As Sergeant Sykes, now you must adapt to dominate the battle. Twin SMG's blazing, seizing new vehicles, or going stealth, the action and the victory is on your terms.

Crysis is simply amazing, and I expect Warhead to be excellent also. I've waited for this release, but sadly, I will not be buying it. The DRM in this game is a deal-breaker for the following reasons:

1. Securom 7, the DRM scheme, installs itself on your computer and is as hard as a computer virus to uninstall. It requires making registry edits, and is far outside the realm of what most people are comfortable with Securom 7 causes possible security issues, system failures, and some legitimate software to stop working. It can prevent legitimate programs that burn cds to stop functioning correctly. It does not install when you uninstall the game. EA doesn't disclose these facts on the game's packaging, or in the game's EULA.

A very similar program was deemed illegal by the Supreme Court. The FTC's previous ruling against Sony can by found here: [..]

"Installations of secret software that create security risks are intrusive and unlawful," said FTC Chairman Deborah Platt Majoras. "Consumers' computers belong to them, and companies must adequately disclose unexpected limitations on the customary use of their products so consumers can make informed decisions regarding whether to purchase and install that content."

2. The game has limited activations (5) meaning that you can only install the game a total of 5 times. I think I rebuilt my computer 4 times just in life span of the original Crysis (always chasing more frames, new graphics card, then two of them in crossfire, new processor {quad core} etc... With this new DRM I would have run out of installs in only 6 months or so! I will not pay $30.00 for a game rental, which is what 5 installs effectively makes this game.

The original Crysis, although demanding in hardware and harboring a benign version of SecuROM, was a worthy successor to FAR CRY: high quality graphics, interactive environment and fast paced action (OK, except the space stage), what was there not to like?! CRYSIS-WARHEAD, its standalone sequel, was bound to do well. But it will not. Here is why.

Similar to all major EA releases since June (MASS EFFECT & SPORE) CRYSIS-WARHEAD harbors the most malignant version of SecuROM (7.xx) and is also crippled by Limited Installations. And to no avail mind you: both MASS EFFECT and SPORE received ZERO protection from their draconian DRM scheme when it came to preventing their piracy!

Exactly like Spore, for which the customer backlash was heard around the world, EA is trying to force this DRM scheme down its customers' throats than do the reasonable thing: listen to them.

Since piracy will always be a factor to consider and everyone has the right to protect his investment, a form of DRM will also always exist. But NOT at the expense of their own customers!

- Revoking our rights as the Administrators of our own computer by creating irremovable folders or registry entries or subroutines that run masked is unacceptable!
- Bundling a snooping, auto-updating and in-secret-contact-with-the-mothership utility that retains backdoor access to our computers is unacceptable!!
- Trying to force legitimate gamers to pay again and again for the same game by Limiting its Installations is UNACCEPTABLE!!

It's not the number of installs. It's not the number of times DRM requires to "phone home." It's not whether or not less wary consumers can call up now and get new activations NOW. It's about buying a service not a product. Services end when a service provider ends, or chooses to stop offering the service. Products exist until they break or at least until they no-longer serve a function (we have no use for them). EA's breed of DRM is guaranteeing that their games will not live any longer than they do with a promise that is 100% not enforcable.

Companies who are about to shut their doors, or are looking at their next big cash flow do not suddenly throw a bunch of resources into developing software to ensure existing consumers, who they already label as a bunch of no-good thieves, can continue to enjoy their games.

DRM limitations are not listed in the EULA. They are not listed on the box. There is mice-type about requiring internet to play the game (that's the activation part).

I can't tell you how many times I have picked up an old game, which I uninstalled, and reinstalled it because a new release of that game is being developed, hitting shelves soon, and I am excited about it again. Or reinstalled a game because a new expansion pack brought life into it. I build my own computers. I've seen harddrives fail. Motherboards fail. I know at least two people whose computers shorted out due to faulty parts.
