Re: Two Crysis questions...
SecuROM is one of the few copy protections I really trust. I worked with them and Rockstar several years ago to fix an issue I had with GTA SA. Both companies were fantastic, unlike Starforce who accused me of being a criminal instead of helping a paying customer.
Anyway, the 5 machine activation limit is dumb. But again, it's only for Warhead. And I'd be surprised if you ever want to play that more than once.
