There is nothing wrong with enjoying a game, any game really.

but I do not remember the last time that a game with such overwhelmingly bad critical review (scores) has sold so many copies, and their fans is so delusional that they deny the quality of the game.

There are so many clues:

a) not providing the game for review early

b) extremely soulless world in the beta (which proves the final game is exactly the same)

c) professional critics from major site are giving the game 60-70

Instead we are getting people that are in denial and sadly if this continues we will get a flood of low quality games that will sell well.

Welcome to the future of gaming!

I really wish Microsoft would implement the retail/digital format for some of us that would prefer it. I'm buying digital, but I would rather buy retail, install, and not worry about putting the disc back in.

Does anyone have a "No CD" crack lol.

My options now are to buy digital, then buy retail when the games are 10.00 and under just to add to my shelf/collection.

But then u could just sell the retail copy....Microsoft and sony ain't got time for that shiz....

That has so much abuse case potential it's not even funny.

Im sure it was;since Activision wins more money by ripping gamers with the overpriced digital version than with the physical disc edition!But please stop overreacting on the sales of the digital version because im pretty sure that they didnt surpass the pysical ones unless demand was not met by Activision IN ORDER TO PUSH FOR DIGITAL OVERPRICED SALES! Too bad for the people that got this game digital due to the overhype and end up not liking it,digital cant be resale or trade!

All publishers rip off gamers with Digital games.
