It's not a complete service like Steam.
Just the fact that it download the image instead of installing the game is ridiculous.
I remember saying this in the other thread, but I've installed the BF3 alpha, NFS: Shift, BF2142, and Mirror's Edge through Origin and they all came as the fully updated game files directly, just like steam. The only thing that came as an installer executable was the DLC for Mirror's Edge.
