Excerpt: I played Crysis 1 and Warhead back to back before Crysis 3 came out. I must say although Crysis 1 starts off rather strong the end of the game was painfully boring and tedious. This game had a much better pace, and much more enjoyable fights with Aliens than Crysis 1. I also thought the character had far more of a connection than Nomad, since he talked.
Summary: DRM Hurts sales. I promise that if Red Alert 3 has this CRAZY already outdated DRM scheme i will be the first to post my complaints. I hate that I tell my friend to not pirate and to help devlopers because they are walked all over. This is crazy. Here's hoping they realize the problem. I tried this game out on my computer before i knew that it had this and I should have known better. The game play itself is fun. Kind of a clone.
Summary: If you have any kind of respect for your own rights you would do yourself and the rest of the free peoples a favor by pirating it. If that does not work well with your conscience, pirate the game and send the developers a check in the mail with some kind of compensation. buying this game from the store is only going to result in punishing yourself with HIDDEN computer behavior monitor software and a game that will no longer install after a limited number of installs.
I've used 2 of my installs and still haven't been able to play

Summary: Would you buy a DVD that was limited to playing only on certain DVD players in your house, and then when you buy a new DVD player you have to call the company and beg them for another "activation" (which they are not obligated to give you)? Of course not. That's why DIVX discs went out of business. Would you purchase a book that only worked with certain registered reading lamps?
Sorry, can't deal with being treated like a criminal

Summary: I always pay for games. The only crack I ever use is a No CD crack, because I hate switching disks. I will never buy another EA game though (and I've spent hundreds on them over the years) unless they stop treating honest consumers like criminals. The draconian DRM they inflict upon us does NOTHING to stop actual piracy, but is an onerous burden to those who DO pay. Yes, that's right.
Summary: This game uses the same horrible DRM scheme that is found on Bioshock, Mass Effect, Far Cry 2, Spore, Dead Space, Sacred 2, and Red Alert 3. I refuse to purchase a game that requires me to ask permission to install the game. There are several games that I own that I have had to install more than five times for various reasons.
Summary: I was just about to order this game...now i'm not. the nerve to say 99.8 percent dont care about it, that is a lie. people dont know what your doing because you dont inform them of your actions anywhere. and those 98 percent are left in the dark because of your breach of good faith with paying customers. my dell has gone through 3 hard drives and countless reinstalling of the OS due to dell's incompetance.
Summary: (...) For the game, I enjoyed the maps for the most part. Expect more of the same - which is what I wanted. New weapons/vehicles/enemies were not very interesting, but I didn't really care. In game cutscenes ranged from okay to horrible. I had fun time playing through, but I don't consider Warhead much better than the top single player maps you can find on crymod.com.
You can't deny the presence of SecuRom when reviewing

Summary: Though SecuRom is basically unseen and hidden from the customer, that doesn't mean it doesn't exist on this product. It is part of the package that is this game. Its presence overwhelms any positive review one might have for the game and its fun factor. SecuRom trumps the fun. The game isn't worth purchasing because it has SecuRom DRM. It is as simple as that.
