Summary: I loaded it and couldn't get it to run. I have Windows 8 and assumed that was the prob. I may have the same issue as the other low rating reviewers. If I load a game and have no special instructions on how to get it to work I may not want to spend the time to find out why. I couldn't get it to work.
Pay shipping fee for 15hr download that doesn't work
6 February 2014
Summary: This was a 15hr download not dvd/pc game as advertised. The dvd is an some sort of instruction manual for ea games and their server origin. Got common error 1638 and tried prescribed gimmick solutions. 50% of the time there is some glitch with downloads and I never want them. So essentially I paid a shipping fee for a download that I didn't want and does not work.
Summary: Even if the 12 GIGABYTE download goes well, and even if the installation goes well, you then have to run the game. Guess what? It won't run because Amazon's down loader/installer doesn't install "Origin", the DRM manager that Crysis is hard-wired to require to run. Then you have to download Origin and install it (and all the well-publicized issues that come with it), which then forces a re-download of the entire game so it can install it on Origin's terms and where...
Unless you want to send data to EA through SECUROM and Origin about everything you do on your computer don't buy

Summary: After installing the game it then required me to install Origin (a software by EA) just to open the game up. According to EA Origin is so you can play your games "anywhere and anytime." Seems like the same bs creason they give you to make you accept SECUROM. Their only reason to FORCE you to download additional software AFTER you've legally purchased it from them isn't for piracy, since if that's what you wanted you wouldn't buy it legally to begin with...right?
Summary: Tried installing the game ran into an error on my part during the install. Tried to uninstall the files to start again and all the cleaning of my systems files it will not install. My files and equipment hardware exceeds ALL requirements. There must be some error file or the like that keeps the installer from starting. Nothing more from "Electronic Arts" unless this is rectified. It is about principle!
Summary: I just got the game from Amazon. The game comes with the Limited Edition, and it instructs me to go to mycrysis.com/limitededition to download so I can take advantage of the benefits. I created an account, but could never receive the instructions to activate my email; hence, I can't create an account. Because of this, I can't post at the forums either.
