1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT, 30 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Command and Conquer: The Ultimate Edition (PC Download Code) (License)
I would like to say first of all that I am a massive fan of C&C, however whichever brain donor at EA decided to do away with discs should be sacked immediately.

The problem is that Origin nonsense, which basically states I need to be online to access my account, daft considering I had just downloaded the application - yes that's right FROM ONLINE.

After an hour of installing, uninstalling, rebooting, and finally giving up, I decided to let you all know this is a waste of money. And its not like I can even sell it now I am sick of it, who wants to buy a used scratch card?

I can't say if the updates to the games prevent the crashing issues on Windows7, as I can't even download the games, I would have to say EPIC FAIL.

Very disappointed with EA, I was so excited about this purchase as well.

I have this same compilation on Windows 7, and I can say that they work fine, so I can't exactly call this a constantly recurring problem.
