2 out of 5 eggsDictates gamers to sign up GFWL

Pros: Only play for and hour and it looks pretty and plays like older racing games.

Cons: Takes nights to download from Steam, which, can be unreliable.

And of course, first you got to have a reliable network adapters or internet connections.

So now it's installed, but it fails to run. After hours of tinkering you find out the problem was Windows 7's security feature.

. . . which, is ironic, to save anything progress and customizations, gamers must sign up Game For WINDOWS live!

Yay!

Other Thoughts: The end time is coming when all pc games run online . . . Until then savor the last bit of freedom where gamers can play games they bought whenever they choose.

3 out of 5 eggshassle

Pros: The driving part. Graphics are amazing. Cars look and sound real. Wish I had 2 more monitors. Sometimes this is Free, for me it was a deal with an APU purchase.

Cons: Whats not so good, the installing part.

It took me litterly a day to download this puppy. 12GB worth of data over a 2Mbit cable line. My poor brother couldn't play on xbox live for the day because I hogged all the bandwidth. Kinda funny for me, but he wasn't happy.

After I finally got it downloaded I installed it. Found out that I wasn't really fully installing it on my machine.

With steam powered games you can't save the game unless you create another account just for the game (I created a steam account, now I need another one for Dirt3 steam powered??)

I have enough accounts to remember as it is. Forget it, Im just going to buy the regular boxed version.

To top it off, my computer now takes another 20 seconds on startup since the game added some steam services that run in the background. Great, wouldn't surprise me if its spyware.

I wanted to reload windows 7 anyways since I have a new SSD hard drive comming.

Other Thoughts: Getting the code was a snap. Took a picture with my phone. Got the new code in less than 1 weeks.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's free

Pros: It's free. Graphics are great. I'm not a huge fan of racing games, but I enjoyed playing it. Definitely worth obtaining if you have the slightest interest in racing games. It's free...

Cons: As many others have said, due to the theft of game codes from the amd4u.com server in September an extra validation step is required. You must scan or photograph the coupon to claim your code. The confirmation promised a reply in 24-48 hours. I submitted mine on a Thursday evening and received the code on Monday morning (4 calendar days, but 2 business days). Received a Steam code which in turn provided a key for GFWL. The extra trouble cracks it down one egg.

Other Thoughts: Got this with purchase of AMD A-series GPU.

4 out of 5 eggsscan and go

Pros: Everything worked ok. I DID have to scan in my card, but was provided with the steam code about 48 hours later. The game itself is actually fairly entertaining. It's not my genre, but the graphics are top-notch and the gameplay is well-done. As a "free" gift (and the product it came with was on an amazing sale, so I truly feel like this coupon was free), I'm very satisfied.

Cons: I had to deduct an egg due to having to scan and wait. I'm not upset about it (and applaud AMD for being reasonably responsive), but I can understand how this delay could cause issues for some people.

5 out of 5 eggsFree!!

Pros: Its FREE! And its a pretty fun game, If racing is what your into. Got it with my video card

Cons: None for me! Everythihng went alright; no problems in downloading the game. Some might need to send in a picture of the card to verify that they have it (a bunch of the codes were stolen, I think it was like 3 million or so). I didnt have that problem

Other Thoughts: You need to install Steam first. I find it annoying, but some people may not. I guess it just depends on if you like the program or not.
I like the game a lot! its really fun. I dont know if I would pay for it, but if you get the free code for it, Its definitely worth installing.

1 out of 5 eggsdont buy 'coupon' version

Pros: on youtube, this game looks freakin SICK, i was very anxious to get this with my cpu i ordered off of newegg..

Cons: the coupon is just like it says.. it's a small card with a 'unique code' on it you enter on amd's website. and it's just thrown in the box for anyone/everyone involved in packaging the equipment can read/copy it effortlessly.

Other Thoughts: once i entered my 'unique' code and saw it was in use, they ask you to take a picture of it and email it to them... yep... did that... 5 days ago.. all i got was an email confirmation and nothing else. their phones in CA and TX or w/e just ring and ring and riiiinngggg

5 out of 5 eggsIt's a free game

Pros: It's FREE!

Cons: None, It's FREE!

Other Thoughts: You have to go to the AMD website and enter your code. Then you have to take a picture of the card showing the code clearly. They'll email you in a few days (1-3) and send you a code for STEAM.

1 out of 5 eggsAre you kidding me?

Pros: I have like 6 of these

Cons: They all have been useless

Other Thoughts: I am so angry that I have purchased 6 graphics cards that all included a "free copy" of this game, and every single code given to me from customer service has been used already. I have emailed them on multiple occasions and they have not responded to me other than assgning me a bogus code for the game. If I had any way to go further and bug them I would. I am so unbelievably angry with this.

4 out of 5 eggsDirt 3 Download Code

Pros: Free, state of the art new game. Native support for eyefinity. excellent graphics and gameplay...Well worth the price.

Cons: Game code didn't initially work. Contacted ATI/AMD, and they required additional proof of ownership. I had to scan the coupon and email it to the support group. It worked eventually. Appearently a bunch of codes had been "nicked".

Other Thoughts: Super cool game. Works with a variety of controllers including wireless X-box 360 for Windows.
