Ea must be desperate to win back gamers. Have to say; giving stuff away does a good job of helping that.

I've previously had problems installing Origin games, saying there's a DirectX error.

I solved it by running the DXSETUP exe manually from within the game folder. e.g. "origin games\<game>\game folder\_installer\directx\redist".

I've got 6 games from Origin over the last 3yrs, all of them from their free offers....Burnout Paradise & Medal Of Honor Airborne were the best freebies so far, and they weren't even meant to be free, it was a mistake on their part.

..wish Valve were as bad at running Steam, then again maybe not.

Won't work on me. Most EA games suck and are not worth even getting for free. I bought the EA humble bundle for Steam and haven't played any of them.

I though this was part of their "we're sorry" campaign to try to bring back all the gamers that they have screwed over with poor releases over the last couple of years.
Most people already have dead space because that seems to be the default game that they just throw at you whenever they mess up anything.

Most EA games suck? I feel like some people just try and jump on any bandwagon. You may not like EAs business ethics, fair enough. But the games barely suck.

Just downloaded now - read a quick review and noted that the PC controls were terrible - looks like one to play with my game pad?

EA is not a game design company so to say most of their games suck is nonsensical.

DICE are published under EA and they have a long run of successful games. Dead Space 1 was an excellent game and there are many more very good games published under EA. The problem is that EA can negatively impact game design companies under their banner and I think Battlefield 4 was a recent example.

Too my knowledge, no. IIRC some people found VSync helped iff your PC could pump out a constant FPS as the control issues were linked to the FPS of the game.

I've played DeadSpace several times through on PC and never had any real issues with the controls. And yes I played with mouse and keyboard on every occasion.

Sooo, who else besides me already owned a hardcopy of the game but picked up the free digital version anyway?

Did you not input the retail key into Origin? That worked for the copy I got on Steam.

V-Sync (on) helped my jerky game play issues a lot. Beforehand it was bad no matter if i tried gamepad or keyboard and mouse.

Dead Space is unplayable. I gave up trying to fix the problem because having to watch the same long and unskippable intro for the fourth or fifth time pissed me off so much that I ended up just rage quitting and uninstalling.
How could they release a game in that state and then not bother to fix it?
