A few things:
- This is a fantastic time waster! Car Sandbox FTW! :D
- "Other DRM" means Origin. Or at least when I bought it, it was still that EADLM thingy, which has now evolved into Origin.
- Criterion stopped supporting this game on PC a million years ago. What is left (which is not much) is now supported by EA, and that is pretty much co-op and that's it.
- The Online Play activation is b0rkd. You need to have someone from EA LIVE SUPPORT manually force it. Takes about 2 minutes. Probably less. Only needs to be done once.
Other than that, if you have an xbox360 get that version instead. It is still fully supported and has about twice the game content including a huge expansion the PC version never got. Can be found for the same price when on sale. Or at least I got it for this price about a year or so back, and that was not the first time I had seen it at this price.
