The biggest complaint from the other reviews is the DRM. The DRM has changed since then. When this game first came out, you can only install this game three times one one machine, and that's it. That's why everyone was upset about it, and they had the right, I was upset as well. But it's changed now. The DRM is still there, but it's not a bother anymore. It restricts you to 3 installs per month. After a month, those 3 installs reset. Unless you love uninstalling your games every week, I doubt 3 installs per month will be a hassle for you.

Yes, this is a DRM based review. Why is this important? Because the major game publishers appear to have decided that even though you are rewarding their efforts with your hard earned money, you don't actually OWN this title. They have decided that they will decide how and where you will use their product. For the record I do not condone piracy, but it is equally unacceptable to limit my legal use of the game or to try to make it difficult or impossible for me to resale the title later. It is unacceptable to install programs on my PC that monitor how I use the game and seek to monitor my compliance with their terms and conditions. The only way to keep the publishers from shackling us with this and making it the "standard practice" is to yell as loud as possible everytime time it happens. If you will let me legally use this however and whenever I want, you will be rewarded with my money, otherwise, not one red cent!

With the Prohibitive DRM in this game, I will never pay money for it. With these wacky DRM schemes which do nothing to stop piracy, but end up treating legitimate customers like they're criminals, you never own the game. You're just renting it from them, should they ever go out of business or stop support on the product, you can't use the product you bought anymore. Meanwhile, pirates are using a superior product, with no activation which works BETTER than the purchased one. No thanks, I'll pass.

I played Escape from Butcher Bay on the original Xbox a few years ago. That was a fun game. Unfortunately, Atari (a company that is already in terrible financial shape) has decided to saddle their newest release with a "copy protection" scheme so insane it's amazing they're even allowed to market the game as a product you buy.

I'll break it down quickly: you are limited to installing this game three times, and once you hit that limit, there's no way of resetting the number. It looks like you'll probably have to call up Atari and beg them to reset your install count once you've used it up. And that's if you're lucky.

The simple fact is Atari is treating its paying customers like criminals and you shouldn't cop to them. Besides, someone's going to figure out how to pirate this game anyway... in fact, I'm guessing a lot of people will pirate it even if they could afford to buy it just to send a message to the publisher.

Lastly, Atari have been in a state of financial decline for some time now. They were delisted from NASDAQ a year ago. They could close up shop any day now. Then how will you be able to play this game? The simple answer - you can't.

Not worth the disc it's pressed to.

It seems like PC users get punished all the time for being gamers. It's not like XBOX-360 games don't get replicated all the time, or Playstation 3's for that matter. This is absolutely infuriating. God FORBID I reformat I hard drive more than a few times or change hardware. Why are PC gamers thrown to the side?
Example: X-box live around 3.5 million users.
World of Warcraft over 11 million users.
WOW alone has more users than all consoles combined. By the way I do own an Xbox 360, but over time, my PC has far outdone anything my 360 can do and I really enjoy the game improvements that are on PC versions of these games.

Obviously Atari could care less about the concerns of its customers and must believe their console sales will save them. Well heres some news for atari. I will not buy any of your games until this terrible DRM practice comes to an end. I also refuse to buy any games from any other software companies who decide to jump on this burning bandwagon. Really hope they decide to change this, I really the last chronicles of riddick game and YES I did pay for it.

I was sooo looking forward to this game , but not now ...once again , as others stated I will not purchace any game with limited installs and no revoke tool , $50 to rent a game is unexceptable . DRM's are ok to a point , but install limints ARE NOT .

Gaming companies will eventually learn that treating legit customers like idiots/fools just does not work . When gaming companies go under/broke maybe they will learn.

Okay, I liked the first Riddick title. It was a great game, and I played through it several times and still have the disc so I can play again in the future. I've seen enough gameplay from Dark Athena to know I'd enjoy this game, but man, this limited install business is a deal-killer for me.

Three installs and then call the vendor. Really? I game from 2 machines, desktop and laptop, at a minimum. If I install it on my employers laptop to enjoy while I'm on the road for business, then that's 3 already. Windows 7 is practically around the corner, so there's a 4th and 5th install for home. I'll be rebuilding my desktop, and likely replacing my laptop over the course of this year, so there's a 6th and 7th install already, and we haven't even considering having to reload due to spyware infections or other failures. Seven in the next year to year and a half. Now then, I can gamble and hope that I can get someone at Atari (a company struggling to even exist these days) to deem me worth of some additional installs, but 4+ (could always get a new work laptop, making it 8)? I'm not willing to take that gamble, nor do I feel I should need to. T

his was another canceled pre-order for me. I've had only three of those now: Spore, Alone in the Dark (first in the series I've simply skipped altogether), and now this title.

Gentleman, your DRM is killing you. People are starting to come around to what a small minority have been preaching. You are punishing your legitimate customers chasing those piracy numbers the been counters throw at you. More and more, people are wising up and simply saying "NO".

Potential customers looking to buy this game, consider this. The economy is terrible. When the economy was good, Atari were barely afloat.
