Summary: BEWARE!!! Do not buy. I love Bejeweled and have played it for many years, but now the new versions refuse to work. I have bought the game copy twice, from Origin itself and from Amazon and both copies just sit idle and refuse to boot up. I have used the windows trouble shooter and sent a ticketed report to Origin (among many other fixes) and NOTHING whatsoever has been done to help me. It's like there is a format for taking my money and nothing else at Origin works.
Summary: Do NOT Buy this download from Electronic Arts. Their program that they make you download with it will never let you register and it will ask you to retry your registration every time you try to play the game. This is exceptionally bad software design and EA ought to be ashamed of what they have done. If you call customer service they will try to make you feel that is your fault, that you are stupid or that you are trying to do something illegal.
Summary: What a fre@!in Waste! I wanted to play the game but instead you get side-tracked to this Origin application. You cannot just start playing Bejeweled. Don't waste your money. VERY disappointed!!
Summary: When I purchased the Bejeweled 3 game, I did not expect to download an entire online store! After downloading for over 3 hours, I found out that not only did I have the game in question but also an "Origin" web store. After letting me get addicted to playing the game, I cannot play it until I create an account with them. I purchased the game from Amazon because I didn't want to be in this position.
Summary: After I bought I couldn't download it without signing up for Origins and then I had to pay another $1.99 to get it. My daughter really likes this game and since she is handicapped it keeps her busy
Summary: After downloading the software I was asked to register it. I tried for days, but only got a message that the web-page was busy or unavailable. I have yet to enjoy my purchase. I am very disappointed in this situation.
Summary: I did not read some of the other reviews before i bought this game. While the game itself is fun... the fact that you have to 'subscribe' to Origins to play it is very very bad business. I just want to play the game - so now I have Origin running in the background just to play a game I purchased. I will never buy from them - or any other vendor - that does this - ever again.
