"Spore gets hammered on Amazon for DRM. Will Wright's Spore was released today and the reviews on Amazon are abysmal. When I checked, 38 of 47 reviews gave it one lonely star. I'm not particularly interested in games, but what's fascinating here is that the dominant reason for the low reviews appears to be that folks are really ticked off by EA's use of DRM. This may be a genuine expression of outrage from disappointed buyers or it may just be the fad-du-jour to post a hostile comment — I don't think that the original motivation matters much. Fact is, any visitor to the product page is currently overwhelmed with angry negative posts in the comments; any other comments about the game itself are easily lost in the noise."

the FULL game plus cracks and creature packs are available as pirate torrent downloads and are very popular!"
