the REAL attraction to Project Snowblind is the multiplayer. It would actually be worth the purchase for that alone but..... Unfortunately the game has a bug that causes many peoples systems to crash after several minutes of play or an especially intense firefight. It also has some issues with Nvidias latest drivers that locks up the screen and causes corruption in the menu.

The kicker here is that Eidos has shut down its forum to new registrants. Why they've done this one can only speculate but given the bugginess of their releases of late I'm sure it doesn't look good to see people complaining on their boards when your trying to sell your company so they've washed their hands of those nasty paying customers who arent grateful for their half finished software. EDIT: oookay. Apparently registration has once again resumed. 2 weeks ago when this started I had asked several people to confirm the inability to register just so I could make sure it wasn't an IP thing and none could. Not that it makes a difference as Eidos has not attempted to post any info on a forthcoming patch, only one post telling people to roll back their drivers which doesnt work. So continue reaching for your ankles kids.....

Of course support at Eidos is basically some guy reading from a script.

DO NOT support this game by buying it until its properly patched. Either that or get the XBox version (more people playing online with that anyhow)
