Some problems have been noticed with such games as regards the installation process. The game DVDs come with a verification code that has to be given out for online verification before a player is able to play the game. This is to make sure that an original copy of the game has been purchased by the user instead of a pirated copy which is absolutely illegal. It has been noticed that due to flaws in the verification system, many verifications could not be possible and the gamers had to contact the company. Sometimes, the system’s response is such that the verification code being provided by the user is already in use including newly purchased DVDs. At other occasions, the servers were found to be inaccessible.
