Beware - you must use Steam to play - Steam sucks! Farming Simulator is great!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Farming Simulator 2013 [Online Game Code] (Software Download)
Steam is an online gaming community. You will have to install the client. It will keep your games in the cloud. After my purchase for my son I realized that I should have read all the way down the description to the last sentence that says Steam is required. Then I should have done reasearch into what Steam was.
What a waste of 19 bucks! After spending an hour getting it installed my son asked me everytime he started the game - "What does this mean I need to log in?", "Why does it take so long?", "What is the cloud", "Dad the internet is down and I can't get my saved games", "Dad it's asking me if I should sync with the Cloud, what do I do?", "Dad my game is lost!"
On top of that the Steam client stayed running on the computer even after the game was closed - unless I killed it. I ended up removing Steam and the game and forked over an additional 19 bucks for the download version of game. I can't stress how much Steam sucks, so much so I ate the cost of my original purchase. Anything that just causes headaches, so much so that it is removed warrants 0 stars. My son has been having a blast with the download version. Save your time and money and stay away from the Steam Online Game code version.

You can very easily de-sync your saves from the cloud database, and you can also run Steam in an offline mode.
