3.0 out of 5 stars Download nightmare!, January 4, 2013

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Farming Simulator 2013 [Online Game Code] (Software Download)
The game is wonderful but the download was a nightmare. Amazon requires that you download Steam and place your game there. The directions to do so are lacking greatly and then Steam is a cloud type thing and it hangs up the computer upon shutting down.

The game itself is wonderful and actually is learning experience for our child. The game has you make decisions on pourchases, biggest yeild. Great game that makes you use your brain. But I do think Amazon needs to let the purchaser know that this game cannot be downloaded directly to your computer. When you purchase be prepared to spend hours to get it set up etc...

It's mentioned in the product guidelines that it requires Steam as its source of DRM, much like all the other games on Amazon that require Steam.

Many people who purchase games online know of steam, or even use steam, like me. Not to mention in the game requirements it tells you the game requires the steam client.

Anyhow, I believe there is a non-steam version here:
Farming Simulator 2013 [Download]

Unfortunately you bought the steam version. I think steam's downloads and updates and file system etc. works much better than amazon downloader anyways, but that's just me.
