Gamers 'Amazon bomb' Resi Mercs 3D user reviews

0

"Amazon Bombing" has become a popular way for disgruntled consumers to make their complaints heard, and Capcom has become the latest to suffer the indignity. Infuriated by the publisher's mysterious decision to block users from deleting their save data in Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, gamers have bombarded Amazon with negative reviews.

"I have nothing more to add that this is crippleware whose sole purpose is to erode owner rights even further," wrote one reviewer. 

"I don't care how much fun this game is, or how good it looks, or how much it costs," said another. "There is one save slot. Save data is permanent and cannot be deleted. Capcom is attempting to set a new precedent in consumer manipulation and control with this product."

As I said earlier, I'm choosing to respectfully reverse my decision to buy the game due to the potential implications of this move. While Capcom insists that this move isn't about used games, it's refused to clarify what it IS about. Gamers, it seems, have decided for them in lieu of an explanation.
