Check out this breaking news story:
It seems EA has completely failed. Not only is the game much more mediocre than promised, the copy-protection has earned it a ONE STAR user rating on Amazon. DRM gives users only three installs of the game before they have to buy a new copy or contact customer support. I was going to buy the game, but now I won't.
Plus, this hassle of copy-protection did not stop hackers as the game was cracked ONE DAY after release.
Instead of stopping copy-protection, EA has just driven more people to game cracking. Marvelous job.
