Adapt to Survive

1.0 out of 5 stars Eagerly anticipated, sadly unwilling to purchase September 16, 2008
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars EA IN CRYSIS: GAMERS ON THE WARPATH September 16, 2008
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
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 might be just me, but I believe that, in the end, the best and more effective DRM method will prove to be reasonable pricing.

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Would you buy a DVD that was limited to playing only on certain DVD players in your house, and then when you buy a new DVD player you have to call the company and beg them for another "activation" (which they are not obligated to give you)? Of course not. That's why DIVX discs went out of business.

Would you purchase a book that only worked with certain registered reading lamps? Why do we put up with arbitrary restrictions on games that we would not stand for in other media? I personally purchased this game from Steam in order to avoid the activation limit, not realizing until afterward that even the Steam version comes with a limit of 5 activations.

Do you think 5 activations is a lot? Well consider this: I installed the game on my desktop computer but my computer was having problems so I then installed on my new laptop but it was not powerful enough. That's 2 down. After I format the harddrive on my desktop I am going to install again and that will be 3. It probably won't be long after that that I'll be buying a new computer, which means number 4, and I will only have owned the game for a few months. For gamers who buy a new computer every couple of years, or gamers who format their drives every 6 to 18 months, or gamers who like to install a game on both their desktop and laptop (or their work computer and home computer), 5 activations will not last long. I've installed games like Diablo 2 and Starcraft literally dozens of times. In fact, just the other day I played the original Quake -- good thing id software didn't put activation limits on it!

I will NEVER buy another PC game that includes install limits and I suggest we all do the same.
