Summary: I hate Xbox so much right now. My son wanted this game for Xmas. I bought him a 360 (which was defective and an entirely separate nightmare) and this game. I had NO idea.that first of all the updates alone require more space than comes with the bundled Xbox. So I will need to buy a hard drive.
I feel swindled!!!! This game exists to pressure you into getting a membership!

Summary: I feel swindled! I got this for my son for Christmas. I haven't seen another game that ONLY allows for online use with the Xboxlive membership. This game exists to pressure parents to get a live membership for their younger children that probably don't have, and don't NEED one. This enrages me.
This is the stupidest move these game makers have done

Summary: This game made so angry. I just found that only one player can play at a time on xbox360 and you must have an xbox live account. This is the stupidest move these game makers have done. Screw them and this game.
Have to buy Gold account ($5/month) and play online only!!

Summary: Sorry, can't play it offline... REALLY? OK it's been a while since I have bought an Xbox game... So you can't play this one unless you have a GOLD account which is $5/month... FCOL! There is no way to play it offline on your Xbox console.... At least as far as I can tell. Nope...
Summary: This game can only be played online with a $60 xbox gold account and it takes up a bunch of space on your xbox hard drive even though it can't be played unless its connected to the EA server via the internet. THAT IS INSANE!! It makes no sense at all. This game is a huge waste of money and time.
EA server never available so you can't play the game

Summary: I know that it requires an xbox live membership and we have one but that does not matter when the EA server for the game (required to play it) are constantly down so you can never connect and play the game.
Summary: My son was SO EXCITED to get this game, so it's with great regret that I have now shut off my xbox and darned near threw it out the window trying to actually play the game we paid for. OMG, what an incredibly frustrating evening.
Summary: BE WARNED!!! I should have read some of the others reviews before I bought this item. If you do not subscribe to Xbox Live Gold this disc is absolutely worthless. You cannot play it on a local system.
