The merits of console vs PC aside, and despite the occasional bug, I'm enjoying this game.

Imo it's far better, gameplay wise, than Doom 3. There are more things to do and a variety of gameplay types within the game. I haven't had a chance to try any of the minigames yet.

After u/g drivers I've had very few gfx glitches, performance is good, the vistas amazing. For some reason multiplayer (Legends anyway) doesn't run as well.

Legends does add some interestng back stories to some of the NPCs. It would be nice to have a series of maps as part of a campaign ala L4D though.

I find the FPS enemy AI better than average. They are good at finding and using cover, flanking, charging, and retreating. The car AI seems unremarkable. They will use powerups etc.

I think I'm about 1/3 of the way through the game, so my opinion could change, but I jsut don't see that this game is as bad as so many people claim, some of whom clearly haven't bought the game.

I bought it at release for $120Cdn....most I've ever paid for a stand alone game to this day. I don't recall exactly how many hours I put into it but played it for at least a year. I still have the disc and I'm sure the manuals etc buried in a box somewhere in the basement. I know I don't have the game box anymore; got trashed in a move.

It crashed repeatedly at first so I phoned tech support and got help immediately. Dude gave me some command line thing to add and it stopped the crash. While I was unhappy at the quality of the game at launch I was impressed at the speed by which my call was answered and problem addressed. Later patches fixed dozens of bugs.

I don't know if the same level of support exists today.

Silent Hunter 5 was one of the first if not the first to get it.

The autho servers were pooched at launch and so many could not log in to play their new game; er sorry, play their newly licensed game.

Ubisoft did send me a link + activation code for Prince of Persia....don't remember the version, nice gesture, not interested in it however.

I would rather they have taken the resources and time to finish the game before launch, and provide more support than a token patch that had a fix list smaller than those fixed by the modders (and some of which had already been fixed by the modders). Add to that the exact same bugs that were present in SH3 and 4, and that was the last time Ubi will bend me over.

As much as I was looking forward to Cliffs of Dover, I kept my wallet closed, and from what I've been reading, it was a good decision.

Ubisoft = shovelware these days. I will have to see universal acclaim from both critics and gamers alike to consider buying another of their products.

I may be one person, but I make sure to communicate my experience to everyone I know.

I decided to help the local merchant out (he's a good guy) and pre-ordered BF3 from him.

Steam is handy, I like it, especially a lot of the awesome sales. It does need more work as others have pointed out. I find myself at times wondering what would happen if they were to go under or if they will ever start charging a monthly fee for their "service".

Mods that try to alter the exe (such as the script extenders for Oblivion/Fallout)

I've had no problem with NVSE; haven't tried FO3 on steam yet, I originally bought the CE. I did eventually buy FO3 goty on steam for the DLC that came with it though; the price was too cheap to pass up.

Start releasing finished games, support them longer than a few weeks and a single patch, and finally lose the draconian DRM. Then maybe I will look at your products again. Until that time ubisoft won't see another dime from me and clearly I'm not alone in this sentiment.

Just like the last couple of Silent Hunter games; shove em out the door half-baked. I'll wager it only gets a couple of patches and they drop support.

Arms no longer lifted above head when sneaking with certain weapons.

Yay!!!!! That annoyed the hell out of me.

That is a nice long list of fixes.

I've had crashes in specific areas (see list) but none with saving. I'm using a number of mods; radio, weapon/armour re-tex, underground hideout, that kind of stuff. Removed some that used NVSE; my version doesn't work with the new .exe.

Oblivion, FO3, and FO:NV all crash on exit for me, still.

Even when I had stereoscopic vision (circa Jaws 3D) it was underwhelming. I no longer have stereoscopic vision, so I don't really care about it. My understanding from the experiences related to me by friends and family is that this latest fad is no different; same 70-80 year old optical tricks.

Holography would be exciting!

I love Bethesda RPGs, but admit they would be much less appealing without the mods and I like most sandbox games.

I still recall Daggerfall at launch.....what a mess.

Above comments = QFT

I have one and the difference in sound quality from the onboard chip on my mobo is significant.

I have mine set up on a 5.1 analog speaker system.

I bought an Asus Xonar DX for $70 about a year ago and the difference in audio quality from the onboard sound, for me at least, is substantial.

Multinational corporations care about their customers only in that they will do whatever it takes to keep getting that revenue stream. That they, and their executives, are beholden to the market means that they will put any event in the best positive light, even if it's the worst possible situation. In order to maximize their profits they will cut corners everywhere. It may not help employees, and some customers might complain, but boy that quarterly report sure looks better!

How do I know this? I've worked for one through the last recession.

It is no wonder then that we have serious fuckups like this and elsewhere. It will also be a miracle if the people affected get any kind of fair compensation.

I'm not all that interested in Portal 2, but the ads did pique my interest in the indie games.....I checked them out but didn't see anything that appealed to me there either.

While their mini ad campaign is surely a success, it isn't necessarily "wrong", and is certainly not illegal, but imo it is underhanded, and perhaps intentionally misleading, although that would be extremely difficult to prove.

I did get some good deals this week off of Steam though; Borderlands GoTY for $7.50 and Civ 5 for $29.99. Having fun! =D


I stopped pre-ordering games years ago; I got burned too many times. Every time I'm tempted by the latest (hard to resist with some of the marketing campaigns out there) I remember how I felt after getting Frontier:First Encounter, or MOO3 (and dozens more.....) So I wait a number of months for reviews, opinions, and price drops. I don't buy nearly as many games, but I have a problem with a coaster shortage now too

I've purchased every game I have but if there's a no-CD or no steam hack out, I'm all over it.

Until recently DRM did not dissuade me from making a purchase, however SH5 has made me re-think that. It is highly unlikely I will ever by an Ubisoft product again (if the community said it was the second coming of Christ I might think about it ). Admittedly it is a sum of other issues, but the DRM is draconian to say the least, especially for a product whose support was dropped so fast.

I know that Iplay hasn't made a good game in years (decades?) and I've enjoyed FO3 and New Vegas very much despite my initial concerns regarding major changes in gameplay (PoV, turn based, etc). Guess whose corner I'm in?

Assuming work is being done and deadlines met, it should be easy enough to prove, no? If so, why is Iplay resorting to
"Many of Interplay’s responses to Bethesda’s discovery requests – including many of its supplemental responses on the motion to compel - are boilerplate objections.
?

Bear in mind I'm not in the legal profession, so something might be going over my head.

fallout new vegas was way better than fallout 3, and much more fallout-y in general
