1.0 out of 5 stars Won't buy unless EA remove the DRM, 9 Sept. 2008
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Spore (Mac/PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
Sorry I'm not going to even consider buying this game unless EA remove the DRM. Don't punish legitimate customers for what the pirates do! All you are doing is making it more attractive to get a pirated copy of the game. After all a pirate copy is far more likely to work after EA shut down their license servers *AND* you will be able to install it more than 3 times.

Haven't bought the game but yet write a customer review???? You are not a customer so stop your whining!

The DRM issue has been blown out of proportion...EA state that its 3 install on different machines (including major upgrades) If you are the sort of person who is constantly upgrading your computer then yes this may be an issue...but EA have stated that you can get additional installs if you request them. I'm sick of reading about this, all that BS about EA's servers.....seriously, EA going out of business? What planet are you from? And if/when they shut their licensed servers, this is a LONG Time down the road....seriously not a big enough issue to worry about.

A system has been introduced to at least 'try' to stop the piraters, the piraters who are destroying the gaming industry and driving up the prices for everybody! Is it that terrible???

*bets this gets not helpful feedback cos I'm not bitching about EA*
