Do not buy from the EA sale....

Bought Crysis 2, not only would it not let me play it, when I actually found the product code and used it the prompt aid I couldn't use it!

What's more?

I tried clicking return and it said

404 Page not found

I called the guy at EA and he was cool and quick about returning it. Dudes name was Owen, good employees are awesome at EA but the IT department is clearly crap, I just don't think anybody should bother with the amount of headache that comes with this sale.

Don't give money to them.

Ever.

Reminds me when Battlefield 3 barely came out and was unplayable because of Origin.

I've bought 3 things from it and they all work totally fine.

Luckily for me I don't live my life based on the experiences of message board strangers.

There was a topic about this yesterday. Something about the code only being for online mode which was discontinued due to the GameSpy shutdown or something. Someone said you can still play the single player if you do something like skip some prompts or something.

Yeah I told him as much last night. If I get energetic I'll fire up crysis 2 in a bit and screenshot the screen in question.

Some roads you shouldn't go down because maps used to say there'd be dragons there. Now they don't, but that don't mean the dragons aren't there.

How nice for you, unfortunately Crysis 2 codes are not an isolated incident, this has happened to many shoppers already.

Because you're able to think rationally and remember they do make games worth the price points given on the sale?
