Summary: Amazon needs to stop selling EA/Origin game downloads. The Amazon product page doesn't tell you that the download from Amazon WILL NOT WORK now that EA has launched its competing Origin service. After downloading this 10 gig file the Amazon rep told me to activate and re-download the product on Origin. I tried this and the serial number activation key STILL didn't work and when Origin tried giving me another number that didn't work either.
Summary: Serial numbers are invalid when attempting to activate. From what I'm hearing this game requires the EA Origin client (to activate and? play properly?), which I believe should be stated in the product's description. UPDATE: Apparently this happened one year ago with the Steam release of the game, so likely again EA's fault: [...
Summary: I spent 5 hours downloading this game and it used 10 gigs of my 150 gig internet limit a month and after all that work i get Invalid activation key when i put the activation key in. I think amazon owes 5.00 and should have to pay for the 10 gigs internet i used. i uninstalled this game.
Summary: Can't really give a game rating yet. After 2.5 hour download, the activation key from Amazon did not work. Talked to Amazon support about 3 hours ago and still waiting for a new key so I can play this game. You would think the keys Amazon has would be valid keys, but someone dropped the ball....still waiting. Edit 01/15/2012 : Stay away from any of these games that require you to download EA or ORIGIN game clients in order to register their games.
Summary: Wasted hours of my time just trying to get the damn thing to work, the product key didn't work. chatted with pretty awful tech support who wasted my time as well. I will never pay for an ea product again.
Summary: I just downloaded Dead Space 2 from Amazon.com and the PC controls are acting really weird. The game is unplayable. Even though my mouse and G13 are in a neutral position, the game menus are offset. I tried starting a new game which took forever to do because the offset menus make it really difficult to determine what you are actually selecting in the menu. The game seemed to behave as if it was actually on a console opposed to an actually PC game.
Summary: Pour ce qui est de la livraison , rien à dire c'est parfait. Par contre je dois m'y prendre à plusieurs reprises pour réussir à installer le jeu (CD 2 pas reconnu à tout les coups) et lors de l'activation , celle ci ne veut pas se faire completement et il m'est donc impossible de jouer !
