Ontop of that I experienced a lot of connecion problems with the game, it keeps telling me I'm not connected to the internet when I clearly am. I visited the Ubisoft forums and there were many other people in the same position, some had been unable to login for days, yet others seemed to be working fine. There was very little response from Ubisoft regarding these connection problems. It is possible that there was some kind of attack happening by Pirates to take the authentication servers down, but I find that excuse unacceptable, Ubisoft should have had things in place so as to not inconvenience the paying customer.
My advise is to stay well clear of any Ubisoft game that uses this online system until they hopefully see sense and change direction.
Oh, and as for the game itself, when it does work it is actualy a very good game, it's just these contstant connection problems have really soured my taste for the game. They seem to have gone back more towards a feeling of the older Settlers games with less focus on the military side of things than with Settlers 6. The graphics are very nice, if a little blurry close up sometimes. Other than that it is difficult to judge the game much more on gameplay as I've actually not been able to logon and get that much actual playtime in.
So DO NOT think "it won't happen to me" and buy this game - it will happen. So please vote with your hard-earned and buy something else! Money appears to be the only language Ubisoft are fluent at - customer satisfaction certainly isn't!
The fact that it needs a constant internet connection means if the dodgy Ubisoft server is down (which it is a lot) then you cant play even the single player campaign. Prime example of security so tight that even the owners cant play.
Unfortunately this was all ruined by the game's performance. It ran like a dog on my computer, which is very high spec, so if I had trouble others definitely would. The need to be connected to the internet all the time is also an annoyance. Above all this feels like such a waste, a good game ruined by sloppy work and over-protection from the publishers. Features like publishing your performance to facebook would have been better left out and the programmers time spent on the game's performance instead.
this is SUPPOSED to be a measure to stop piracy, but I disagree, this will actually INCREASE piracy as people will want to get a hacked copy that doesnt need this rubbish online login...its driving potential paying customers TOWARDS pirates due to the inconveniences this causes
its a total contradiction that alienates people like me from Ubisoft.
ok...now onto the game.
Graphics: Pretty good, not the best i've seen but far far from sloppy.
Gameplay: Fairly similar to previous settlers games concentrating more on base building and economics and a far slower pace than its rivals, if you like fast paced action packed RTS...look away now this isnt for you.
I dislike the lack of any real control over your military, you just tell a general with his men to attack an outpost or base territory and then go there and automatically take it for you...completely chucking any thoughts on military tactics out of the window!
so overall if you like to build up a renaissance citadel fit for Kings with a powerful economy and a shiny army that does all the work for you..go ahead and get this.
this game is also akin to its previous installments in the way its more about charm than serious gaming, so if your not a serious gamer then this may well be the RTS for you
Performance: runs perfect...Read more ›
