"Pretty Crappy"
1 stars"

After the other Settlers this scores very low, pretty crappy game play and as covered the new DRM and updates are just stupid. The last one I will buy with this protection, as I made the mistake of buying Silent Hunter as well. DRM is way to painful and if these clowns wish to drive customers away they just did it for me.

"Not very impressed" Purchased on Mighty Ape

If I could get into the game I may change my mind, but on arrival, a brand new just released game, required a 5GB update which I had to run all night using up my complete months broadband usage. The next day we require another 20 or maybe 200 mb update as well as a launch updater. Then it tells me that the game is not installed properly. I ignore this as I am not doing it all again. I finally manage to get into the play screen 24 hours after receiving the game only for them to tell me the server is not available and try again later. This game can not be played without a permanent internet connection. And if their server is down you can't play it at all. I do NOT like this system.

"Just a follow up to Permalinks Ubisoft warning." Purchased on Mighty Ape

That was written on the 29th March and they said the Ubisoft site had been down 3 days. I am writing this at 9.30pm on the 4th April, 6 days later, and Ubisoft server is STILL down therefore I STILL CAN'T play this game.
