It looked amazing if you are easily tricked by their claims of "new revolutionary parkour system... SMART!" or "unparalleled teamwork based combat." If you looked past the flashy HUD and graphics, you would've seen nothing but a game based on already well-established and near-overused mechanics, that would bring little, if anything, new to the table.

This is why I plucking hate people. Returning the game after you finished it because "you didn't like it?" What kind of crap is that? I hope something bad happens to this jerk off.

no need to get your knickers in a knot. I doubt any outcry in reviews, or forums will do anything to EA/Bioware; why? Well they already got their $60 and dont care for it anymore. Now if that $60 got taken from their wallets because of the outcrys... I think we can expect an announcement pretty soon. Still its a cheap blow to amazon, its like buying a sweater and wearing it for 30 days then returning it.

Not according to Amazon. And no, this is sensible. Voting with your wallets is pure sense.

If you think Amazon are taking a loss here you're all nuts. They will settle their accounts with EA on a monthly basis, the check (cheque, to me) they send EA will be minus the cost of all the refunds.

I guess it really hit home with me since I'm an aspiring developer.

You don't play a game all the way through and say "I don't want it anymore" to "vote with your wallet", that's just ridiculous. That's like someone saying they'll pay you if you do something for them, and because they don't like the outcome of what you've done, they decide not to pay you. It's just wrong.

Yeah you do. What kind of logic is that? Ever heard of Nickel and dimed? I'm sure you have.

You have to wait until the end of the game to find out the company lied about the content of the game, but because of that you're ineligible for a refund? Horrible logic. Of course you're entitled to a refund. You can claim the product is defective as it doesn't do as advertised and get a refund. It's wholly legitimate and people like yourself need to realise the same rights extend to you. The product isn't dangerous or anything, so if you are happy to keep it that's your choice, but you should know (now, after this fact in the article) that you are entitled to a refund.

That is the very definition of voting with your wallet. This is even BETTER than not buying it in the first place by a factor of a million because first the sale is that and because of the BS, now it's gone. It's fantastic for the consumer and it's about time people stopped mindlessly defending companies or assigning rights to them that don't exist.

Oh and yeah, student games programmer here. I totally agree with this refund and I totally agree Bioware screwed up. If I am part of a team that makes a game that receives this amount of backlash I'll be upset. Upset with the team and upset with the idiots that made those decisions (since it'll just be my job to shoot down technical ideas that aren't feasible and program the stuff they want).

How would that work? "Oh, I see you only paid us for 5 new boxed copies when you ordered 500, durrrr".

Amazon pay for the product before it ever sees their storefront.

I want to return my DVD of The Italian Job (1969) because it had a crappy ending. CRY! However, everyone's used to fancy dénouement because of hollywood.
