    Uhmm... no, actually the game was fully cracked even days before its release.

    I was about to buy it, but with all that DRM **** on one side and the missing game depth on the other... no thanks.

    And I bet that EA will release at least 15 expansion packs for it in the following 18 months in order to add that missing game depth... it was there before, they just removed it in order to make more money. As with any EA game.

    I've bought it based on all the hype and expectations and now i haven't even touched it for a day which is for me a very bad sign. I usually play any new game day and night till i finish it and then i usually start it over using alternative ways to play or higher difficulty. And damn it was expensive like hell compared to other games.
    I kinda regret i haven't invested those 50 euro into 3 or 4 older games that i know they were great and i still have them on the to-buy list. Maybe it'll get better later in the Space era, we'll see... at least cells tage was quiet fun actually.

    Sounds more like Maxis have a nasty problem to deal with... EA, it's retarded overlord.

    I was going to buy this game, now I'm not going to bother. I was really excited a few months ago but it what with the DRM and the general things I'm reading about it, I genuinely don't want the hassle. By the way, I'm not going to pirate it either.

    Lets get a 'EA money loss' count going in this thread...

    £30/$50 (Total $50)

    EA got owned ? It happens when you treat customers like potential thiefs.
    It is a MYTH that DRM will make people buy orginal game....

    I ordered it yesterday all excited about trying it because of the hype about it before.

    I just cancelled my order.

    This kind of DRM is unacceptable. I want to own my games, not rent them. These limited activation systems has to stop. It is not reasonable.

    Such a crappy way to treat it's customers. & when this game doesn't sell great because of this, They will blame rampant piracy. Poor Will Wright is such a tool. Making a game for EA is like making a deal with the Devil.

    Funny thing is, this will force more people to pirate it than would have in the first place, and the only people that are going to suffer from this are the paying customers.

    And since it was cracked before even release, I really don't see the point in DRM at all. If people are going to pirate it, they are going to pirate it. There is nothing you can do about it. And any effort you do put in to it, is only going to alienate the paying customers more.

    Anyone know of a way to rid your computer of the drm??? I just uninstalled mass effect, and want the drm gone with it. :/

    Great, I just bought SPore, AU$120, great game, but seriously to me not worth the money, plus reading that article... it seems this game with all the hype, prob does more harm than good, and here I am wanting to change my ways from DLer to Purchaser, well, they fuked that up.

    And i am not buying this one.....i am sick of this 3 install crap. I recently called EA support in order for me to play Mass Effect again because i had to re-install it more than 3 times. (2 times it crapped out on me without any sort of sign)
