Can't even install the software on my new PC, the installer don't respond while all others are okay.
I have been so disgusted with Origin. I don't trust their updates and look for reviews before installing one and they usually suggest NOT to install. All they seem to care about is selling more games, which I feel is totally the reason for requiring the Origin management. You can always find where they are selling, but not doing a good job of managing what you have already purchase. I hate having you hold my games hostage. >:(More
I don't recommend it, game libary folder management is not organized. Too many unnecessary Updates.
misleading getting password not happy not helpful sending one
Avoid Origin like the plague. Difficulties installing, updates screw up your machine, and then when it quits working (and it will), you are left holding your member. It won't let you uninstall and it won't let you reinstall. Avoid this unless you are really into frustration. Cons: Quality. ability to uninstall. Uninvent Origin.
Very poorly tested = ORIGIN. has serious bugs, management not willing to fix it. Many installs including mine constantly have to "update" but it really doesn't. You will need to update constantly. Other times it won't go online no matter what. My kids have not played Sims3 or Sims4 much because of their interface. Rip off. Pros: simple. Cons: does not work correctly
TERRIBLE. One word, TERRIBLE. Everytime I go to play a game it has to update for a few hours or the application won't open or it says I'm offline when I have internet. All round terrible. I wish there was a way around it all I want to do is play a game, way to complicated just to get it started. Pros: Nothing. Cons: Everything, never works, needs to stop updating every two seconds.
Will never buy a game on Origin again..
Disgusting. Nowhere else have I spent money online, had the money taken from my account, but over a day and a half later still don't have access to the download?!?!?! what a load of crap. On steam, I pick a game, I pay for it, and literally within seconds I'm downloading the game and playing minutes later. Origin on the other hand, I pick the game, pay for the game, and wait, and wait, and wait. It has been 40 hours and I am still waiting to download my game. you try and call them, forget it. You try and email them, forget it. You try and chat with them, forget it. Well from here on out I am telling Origin to FORGET IT! I will never buy a game from them again.

Origin is trash which makes your game unplayable. .
Origin is frustrating. All i want to do is play a game leisurely. I'm not a avid gamer and just want to play every few weeks. Every time I want to open my game that I have bought years ago there is always something new that I have to enter in order to play. It is a waste of my time and very frustrating that I can't play my own game. What happened to just installing a game and playing whenever you want? Give an option for people like me to just play and not have to jump through all the dumb ho.
The ability to play a game purchased years ago without having to put in the code and EVERYTHING again. It should not be required.More
Origin are wasting my life. I am moving on. I think Origin should just give up. They are making it so complicated to buy games through them. I mean you can't even get the to take your money. I GIVE UP
Horrible customer service. .
Horrible. I tried to download a game, but it would not download. No problem, I chatted with customer service. They not only did not provide any suggestions after over 1 hour of chatting and with two separate methods of confirming my identity, Vineet said that a credit card refund would take 7-8 days (should take seconds), suggested that they could have helped, and then abruptly ended the chat session.
Helpful support staff. The effort was deplorable. See chat 18528452.More
Highly fustrated I just want my game to work. .
Origin suck. Just got Sims 3: Island Paradise yesterday. The game won't launch. I've spoken to 3 advisor people but the issue still isn't solved. They said it will be escalated to a higher level and that I should wait for them to email me about this issue, who knows how long that's gonna take. £30 wasted and I can't get a refund. I will not be buying from origin again.
Origin need better customer service.
They need to actually solve issuesMore
horrible. horrible its too slow many bugs cant manage contacts cant work with any internet LOGIN ERRORS that are killing me offline mod doesnt work well. Pros: its just fancy. Cons: log in errors. internet and offline mod problems
Appalling.. Appalling downloads. Taken me 5 days to download 5 games to 28%, where as on Steam I have downloaded more than 10 games in 24 hours. Continuous errors and bugs preventing downloads, have to restart it constantly. Don't waste your time on it, no game is worth the hassle. Pros: The logo is nice. Cons: Just about everything else.
It is Horrendous. It is bugged, redeem code doesn't seem to work, laggy.. I've currently wasted one hour with this product and I still can't even start to install my game - waited 10 min for installation, 20 min for registration and an eternity to activate a product
Poor performance may drive away potential customers.. So far I am NOT impressed! I can understand if a server is overloaded and unable to perform at peak performance. However, the consistently poor performance of this site is going a long way toward removing any and all games that might depend on it and switching to another service for gaming.
Consistently poor download speeds that decrees further over a few minutes..
While I admit to having a slower machine compared to faster more expensive desktops, I feel that my ISP connection should be adequate to download a mere 51 mb of software. However, I can watch the download meter and see my speed fall from 128 kps to less than 40 kps to ZERO kps over the course of three minutes. Other sites maintain a steady flow of download, it's only Origin that has this particular problem.
ability to maintain download speedMore
EAs own program is more likely to go to pirates than a disire not to pay..
Origin constantly causes problems, it downloads at barely half the rate of steam, I have had problems installing games such as mass effect 3, haveing eventually to manualy edit the regestry whilst EA support spouted instructions I had already done days ago and telling me to run a repair install on a game that *would not install*. The only reason to have Origin on your computer is now that they have made any new games require it to run. It is utterly awfull.
It allows chat with freinds (a feature many other programs also allow)
Download is slow and patches are immediatly enforced.
download games are still the same price as retail, In comparison to other stores such as steam.
I have had more problems installing two games with this program than installing the rest of my library.
EA Awnser is utterly inept, meaning I have needed to fix games manualy withought any guidance from their supposed experts.
It is required for any new EA games.
Games cannot be installed offline or through certain firewalls.
To run origin it is recomended to switch off all firewalls and antiviruses although this is not nessiceryMore
Origin = poor software. To be honest its still like beta software... my advice is to use Steam where possible. It barely works, and launches a browser window to play a game... sigh.. I wont continue the list but steer clear of this at all costs. I wont be buying another EA game because of this orgin. Pros: Nothing. Cons: Quality
I'm not ever going to use Origin anymore.
My account was working for a few months before it suddenly became impossible to login!
Prior to this, I received an email stating that my account email and password have been changed. WTF???!!! How on earth did this happened? I didn't make the request to change anything. To make things worse, EA's link for help is hopeless! It just direct me to a page where others have submitted their questions, and hope I find similar threads to answer my question. There was no email and no phone contact numbers. Worst of all is that I cannot even reply to those threads that has similar problem to me. I had to register a new account with Origin before I can post a question regarding my currect login and account issue.
Makes me wonder if I'll ever see my purchased games anymore.
Even if EA solved my Origin account problem, I'm never ever going back to Origin. Its just so SO Unsafe!
Glad I have most of my games on Steam. Its much safer and the price of their games is just awesome!More
It feels like it was programmed by beginners..
It doesn't seem like it was programmed well. I usually have to download the installer and then run it instead of the program installing it directly to my computer like Steam.It also runs slow and glitchy.Like I said, I use steam and don't have a problem but Origin just feels like it was programmed by beginner programmers and doesn't feel polished or like it runs smoohthly.
Allows you to download software without having to go to the store and buy them.
It doesn't feel polished, finished or function smoothly.
Other rival programs are definitely a better choice when possible.More
Origin works great for me & I am a newbie!. Had no problems whatsoever...Using windows 7 on a hp dv7..Quick download & installation. Fast & efficient service when i needed help with dragon age origins dlc. Pros: Simple to use. Cons: none as of yet
terrible. IT does not state that you can not download Origin on a Mac computer. I have brought Sims 3 electronic download but did not know you could not use it. TERRIBLE. Pros: nothing. Cons: everything
What the S**t?.
I had to download Origin, the new EADM, to participate in the BF3 Beta. I thought, hey, I love BF2142, why should I not like this? I download Origin, Start the BF3 Download, ad wait. I register that none of mye previously owned games show in Origin. I know I have the CD's at home, and I KNOW I have registered them om my EA account. When the game was finished downloading, I pressed play."Error" It said. No Way. Origin faultly installs the BF3 Beta I want to try, and blames me.
EADM never worked as it should have, and Origin is even worse. "If you polish a turd, its still a turd", but EA did not just polish it. They dipped it in water, so now it stinks even worse than earlier.
If you can go your whole life without having to come in contact with either of these online game portals, you are one lucky, but since you are reading this, you are probably not one of them.
You get an overview over your newly, expensively bought EA games.
To many to name. If EA want to keep their loyal fans, trash this, and make a better one.More
doesn't work. I keep trying to download origin, but each time it opens with text edit and does not work! And now I just tried to submit this and it said it's too short. Well, there's nothing more to say. IT DOESN'T WORK. All I wanted to do was to download the free Sims 3 Pets demo!
Ugh poor customer service and doesnt work on windows 7. I cannot login on windows 7 and everytime i communicate with ea-games the tech support is completely bad
frustrada, enojada y aun asi buscando una solucion..... yo compre un juego (hoy) y no puedo descargar el origin, ya que mi mac no lo lee, por lo que no puedo jugar y perdi 24,95 euros por culpa de esa aplicacion. (si algien tiene alguna idea de lo que puedo hacer porfavor acepto cualquier sugerencia)
Why should I ?!?. After all of the reviews I have read, why would I even want to bother with it? I do not play on line, the only thing it would do for me is allow me to buy even more stuff for my game that may or may not be released eventually in an expansion pack. So, if EA does not care that its product is just to much of a pita to deal with, and people like me wont be spending extra money on &quot; points" well then why bother? This EADM has been a pain from the first, and EA has intolerably slow down loads. (very expensive for some) The first time I bought my games I did it on one go, on line, after the first 20 hours, I shut it down and bought it in a store. I will never buy another EA game on line again. It is worth the wait to go buy it at the store or wait for the mail to bring it. What a huge huge disappointment. Developers should make things easier for customers to spend money .. not harder to impossible. More
Awesome.....But. I Love the new interface and the name. I just need EADM for my Ubuntu Crossover program. Overall it is pretty good. Pros: Cool Interface. Nice Categorising of Purchased Games. Really Easy Store. Cons: No Support For Crossover. Loooooooooong Downloads :(
