Server only play! Why restrict gamers to only that mode?,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 [Download] (Software Download)
This new generation of games is horrible. Like Call of Duty: Mod War 3, one can only play the game after logging in to the manufacturer's server--even in single player mode for Campaigns! But the worst of it is that I repeatedly could not play using Activision's stupid new login software "STEAM." I kept getting the error message: "Game is unavailable." So you spend $60 on a game that you can only play, if and when Activision's server is working. ???
Now why would they change these games, even single-player games, to a login-to-server-only format? Because they turn us into a captive audience for advertising! Every time you login, you get these stupid splash screens advertising other games and additional bull.
Not worth it in my opinion. I will never buy another game like this in protest.
P.S. I looked into possible troubleshooting and fixes for the error mentioned above. I could not believe how complicated and involved their confusing support pages were. I don't have 60 hours to fix a game that I may play for 10 hours total. Does anybody have that kind of time?
