This is for the downloaded version of Civ 5, GOTY edition.

Add me to the list of people who purchased this game, downloaded the game, and registered it with Steam only to find that the CD key provided by Amazon has already been registered to another user.

I am pursuing this with Steam, as they seem to have a procedure for addressing this.

I can only guess that the algorithm used to generate the keys has been broken and people are registering these cracked keys, causing problems for legitimate purchasers such as myself.

Stay tuned as I update this review with my progress. If Steam fixes this situation, I will post it here. If not, I will also post that, as well as what Amazon does if I need to request a refund for this item.

Update #1. One day later, no response yet from Steam.

Update #2. Back and forth with Steam support. This takes 4 days. First they say that they do not support the purchase of used games. When I point out to them that I purchased a new one, they ask for all the purchase info/screenshots, which I included in the original support request. After receiving the purchase info, they say that they cannot help me despite their published policy and close my ticket.

Update #3. I call amazon for a refund. They offer me a new game key, which I am happy to accept. I try to register the second key, that also registers as a duplicate with Steam.

Update #4. On the phone with amazon again.

Received the game but the product code was not accepted. After 10 days and 5+ emails I gave up.
This product and process sucks.

The CD Key is a duplicate. It was a few days since I have played this game and decided to play again on the tenth of July. To my bewilderment my game disappeared. I got an error saying my key is a duplicate. I am in the middle of trying to get this resolved with Steam. DO NOT BUY.

Let me start off by saying a huge CIV fan and was extremely excited to play this one. I just bought a new iMac that would also be running windows 7 through boot camp anyways I new my specs could more than handle the requirements needed to run this game so I went ahead and purchased the digital download of the game. Biggest mistake ever! After the download completed and I tried to open it I would get a invalid sum error and most people have recieved a product key code that's already been used. It would be worthy to note that the digital download is Mac - Snow Leopard only which I also didnt notice so if you were expecting it to be 10.6 or later too bad. If you like Steam platform I would recommend just buying it from them I did and got 75% off, it works great, no problems! 5 stars for the game and 1 for the amazon experience! Hope this helps

What a waste of time and money. I should have read the other reviews. It took hours to download and in the end it doesn't work.
Why is amazon allowing this person to rip people off?
Very frustrated.

I am a long time fan of Civ III. When Civ IV came out I could never warm up to it.
This time its different, Civ V is much better than IV, game play is smoother, more like Civ III I think.
The online connection is a pain. It was difficult to get it to work in the beginning. This should be a 5* rating but the Steam nonsense knocks it down a peg for me.

I FEEL RIPPED OFF. I CAN'T USE WHAT I PAID FOR. IT REQUIRES ME TO GO TO SOME OTHER WEBSITE OR SOMETHING TO STREAM THE GAME I GUESS. I JUST KNOW THAT WHEN I TRY IT TELLS ME THE INTERNET SITE IS DOWN. IT HAS BEEN SINCE I PAID FOR THE GAME. THERE IS NO NUMBER OR CONTACT THAT I CAN USE EITHER. I DON'T THINK I'LL BE BUYING AMAZON GAMES FOR THE MAC IF THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS. CAN U HELP?

Don't download this product!!! There is no question that Sid Meier's Civilization 5 is a 5 star gaming experience. So why the 1 star? Because after downloading and entering the key provided, I got an error message stating that 'the code you've entered has already been activated'. A phone call to Amazon got me nothing: 'No returns on downloads, sorry.' As you'll find by reading the reviews, I'm not the first with this problem. The game when downloaded is being handled by a company called 'Steam' which is some kind of intermediary code activation outfit. I've emailed them, so far no response. Meanwhile 50 BUCKS DOWN THE TUBE.
