Spore & SecuROM

Amazon is too fast. The game was ordered and only hours later we found out that it is one of the games that infects your computer with the malware that is SecuROM. By that time it was already sent out and we could not cancel the order anymore. On Amazon.de and Amazon.com the game is getting tons of 1-star reviews because of this. As I write the number of negative reviews nears the 2k mark on Amazon.com.

While I think that the negative reviews are much better than not buying a game, I am not willing to have a DRM-Rootkit on my computer. Thanks no. I’ve always been a paying customer for all you DRM industries out there. This game I am returning. It wouldn’t be so bad if it was just some DRM but SecuROM is really just too much.
