This kind of crap happened to me with Assassins Creed II. I installed the game, got 15 minutes in, and then the game crashed because the client lost connection to Ubisoft. I restarted the game and tried again, and after 15 minutes it crashed again. I immediately uninstalled it and haven't played it since. Don't punish those who own a legal copy of a game.

Battlefield 3 shows this message over and over.

It seems like this has always been a problem for this company. I remember trying to play LOTR:BFME 2, Frontline: Fuel of War and even Homefront on multiplayer and getting a similar message.

Also:


2. Yes, it's a pretty good game otherwise. It is, however, just another "electronic whack-a-mole". The campaign mode is an afterthought, as expected. If you don't like multiplayer, then don't even bother reading the box for this one.

3. I do not remember EVER getting an "unable to connect to server" message for any of the incarnations of the (less enjoyable multiplayer, IMO) Call of Duty franchise. Is this because the COD multiplayer maps don't have vehicles, are much smaller, etc?

4. I deleted #1


I got this a great deal with Bad Company 2.

I always buy every game I play. Yes, always.

And then I install a crack to get rid of this cr@p.

I just don't buy it and don't play it. If you buy it then they win and they'll do it again next time. Not to mention they'll keep track of how many people downloaded cracks/cracked copies and use that as justification for even worse crap the next time. There are still plenty of games that don't punish legitimate owners. Vote with your wallet.

That's too bad because it's a GREAT game. I played the crap out of it on the 360.

Im playing on the 360 and am having no problems. Im sorry you are, EA for some reason seems to misjudge the amount of people theyre going to have playing their games when they drop. They had some severe lag issues with Bad Company 2 when it dropped as well.

I was impressed with the campaign, and want to try the Co-Op missions to unlock the weapons for multiplayer. (the G3 in particular)
