Buying FC, download or not?


Recommended Posts

Well, if I had seen this sooner I would have given the thumbs up for the CD version which I got from Naturalpoint. Dont really feel comfortable with a download and prefer the CD in my hand in case something goes wrong, but I am glad the download version works for you. :)

Should I get the disc version or the download version?

 

IMHO, get the CD. definitely. You can play it whenever you want, wherever you want. No activation hassle. The biggest drawback with activation is "what happens if the company who sends the activation numbers shuts down?"

Instead the biggest drawback for the CD version is "what happens if I lose or damage the CD"? (since starforce can't be cloned yet)

 

One of these conditions (CD version) depends on you, the other (download) depends on others. I prefer to rely on myself.

 

Furthermore I bought the CD version from Naturalpoint, and I had a great service at a very small price. An original printed CD with DVD case and printed cover.

 

cheers

I bought the dl v. when it first came out and I have no prob's what so-ever

with starforce or any other kind of problems..I burnt the installer and reg save utillity to disc to keep them safe.

 

I'm sure that when u make hardware change's ur supposed to re-activate starforce,I recently upgraded my CPU but never had to re-activate :)

 

So all in all I've been "very satisfied" with FC :icon_jook
