why would it be doing this i have the disc it took the key code but the minute i open to play it shuts it down saying my game is not valid.
Do you just have the base game ? Is the disc in your drive ? What's your operating system ?
I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
