Do not buy PC version. Freezes. Non-functioning.

Summary: Pure and simple it does not work. after working with tech support for 2 hours, numerous reboots/re-installs/updates/repairs/workarounds, I was told to re-download again. I did. It still will not work.
Summary: Loved the game, while I could play it. It forces you to use Origin game platform, which FORCES you to update Origin, which then causes the game not to work. When I could play it, it froze frequently, but since Origin has forced me to update, it wont work at all.
It crashed...then crashed...then crashed some more.

Summary: Pros: It's consistent Cons: It consistently crashes. All this game ever did was crash, and crash, and crash...at least on my platforms. I tried it on a desktop (Intel i5, nVidia Quadro K600, Win7, EA Origin + Disc version of the game).
Don't buy after 1-Jan-2015 Just another EA game that wont work with the new Origin Installer

Summary: I bought this game in December 2014 so its older. Unfortunately this is one of the older titles that wont work with the new Origin Installer. The game will not install on my system with the new installer.
Summary: Game is Okay, but you are required to do all sorts of online crap with Electronic Arts and install this "Origin" crap just to play the game you paid for. Origin is basically software on your computer that launches pop up ads, even when you're not in a browser, to buy EA's games.
Summary: Run-of-the-mill, very derivative game with better-than-average graphics and terrible combat capabilities. This is what happens when people buy so-so tools, never learn how to use them, and then ruch a product to market. Trust me, I've been in the software business for 40 years!
Summary: I downloaded this game and played it. Good game and was fun, but there is some sort of problem with the manufacturing company that will not allow you to redownload and reinstall. I had to reformat my computer and cannot get the game to work at all.
Summary: This seemed like a fun game. When I got it I found that one had to create an account at Origin. Hmmmm ... I have a disk, what does Origin have to do with anything? OK... onward ... After downloading the Origin bloatware the game finally started loading. Problem .. DX something or other.
Forces EA login even though it is Steam not Origin.

Summary: You have to connect to EA servers to play single player. It appears that EA's draconian "screw the consumer" system also does something to the so my wife cannot watch Netflix on the TV if I'm playing this on the computer.
