OK, this blows.

I buy this game off Amazon, since it was cheaper there than anywhere else. Only $13. So yeah, I buy it,  download it, and well what do ya know, technical difficulties occur halfway through the download process. I was three hours into the download and only had 1.6 gigs out of 3.8! Amazon download speeds suck @ss. Well now when I try to restart, it says it's unable to. And when I first purchased this game, Amazon only gave me two hours to download the client.... so am I screwed?! I have the activation code, but I can't get my game. This is BS. I'm not dowloading from Amazon again. Steam all the way.

I played Spore for an hour, and then took a shit while I read USA today.  That's how interesting Spore was. 
One of the most forgettable games this generation, despite the promise and hype.

This. Why was your #1 solution to post it here? Call an Amazon support person.

You know Steam was selling it for less than 10 bucks during some sale right?

Well, it is twice as much on Steam. I didn't even know you could download games straight off Amazon.

First off, I didn't know Amazon allows downloads. Second, wouldn't they send you a boxed copy?

So you're complaining about this, but you're too lazy to actually contact Amazon?

Amazon has one of the best CS support out there... Hell I'm pretty sure they'll also give you some credit for your troubles.

@Enigma777:  Agreed, it's worth a try just so you can potentially get something better out of all this than Spore. Spore is kinda fucked... 
EDIT: My 300th post was about Spore... LOOK WHAT YOU MADE ME DO, OP >:(

Why would there be a 2 hour limit for a nearly 4 GB game? Idiotic.
