1.0 out of 5 stars DRM, sigh..., 31 Mar 2011
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: The Sims Medieval - Limited Edition (PC/Mac DVD) (DVD-ROM)
The game arrived today, I was very eager to install and play. The game and the patch installed without any issues but it would not let me past the introductory video, then I recieved a message saying DVD validation failure. Half an hour later the game loaded without problems, played for about two hours and then took a break, sigh, guess what, yes, the game would not load again, DVD validation failure! I don't understand how an already validated DVD can't be validated again. The game also caused my first blue screen of death afer 3 years of changing my operating system. ( last week installed The Witcher, the enhanced edition, and Dragon Age 2, all installed an run without any problems. So maybe the game deserves a higher rating than mine but I simply cannot rate something I cannot play.
