    • Battlefield 3 (Standard Edition) £9.99
    • Bejeweled 3 £7.49
    • Dead Space 3 (Standard Edition) £19.99
    • Mass Effect 3 (Standard Edition) £7.49
    • MOHW (Standard Edition) £19.99
    • NFS Most Wanted (Standard Edition) £19.99
    • Plants vs. Zombies £3.49
    • SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition £9.99

    Though it may be ok to give us a game for there mistakes maybe they should have given with the games above free DLC, only valid choice for me is dead space 3 me thinks as i have read that MOHW is a load of sh**.

    Downloaded NFSMW, played it for 5 minutes, and have just uninstalled it.

    Thanks for the free game and free 5 minutes in a "free-roaming environment" that got pissed at me for driving headlong into traffic.

    Everytime I crashed into a car, it would either magically teleport me to within striking distance of the car I was meant to be racing against, or I would get a black screen with a spinning icon which meant it was loading something, and then do the same. All the while it would flash on the screen "wrong way" in red.

    FU for trying to tell me how to play the free game you gave me, and FU for creating a nagging wife of a game that won't let me do what I want in a free-roaming environment.

    Oh, and having a red barrier that won't let me drive to other parts of the map unless I give you more money is pathetic.

    Find the nearest window of the Ivory Tower, and jump out of it.

    You can't be mad at EA for that, you picked the free game of choice.

    Step in the right direction. Let's hope they learned from their mistakes this time around.

    Not much choice, all the others I either have or have no interest in playing.

    Downloading it felt like being in a restaurant and being given two main courses when I'm full.

    Didn't ask for it, didn't want it - but felt the pressure to take a bite regardless.
