Summary: Why should I have to log in to play the game on my PC? uPlay failed to recognize my new password after multiple attemtps to recover it. This game is just a retread of earlier version without much new game play.
Summary: This is a good game to play when it’s working. It crashed 3/4 of the way through the campaign. I tried to reinstall it several time but game just won’t launch again. I gave up on this and moved on. Too bad because I liked the Anno series
Scraping barnacles would have been more productive -- and I don't even have a boat.

Summary: Utterly useless. I have never had more trouble with a game. It took hours to upload, then I found out that it cannot be played without an internet connection. I uploaded it on my parents' computer, but it behaved as if it was running when it wasn't. The Ubisoft forums were of no help.

Summary: If only were possible to give a negative rating...This game is literally unplayable. I do not mean that there is anything wrong with the game itself. I have no idea. The UPlay system and the updater hung my system everytime I tried to play. After 3 hours or so, I gave up...
Summary: First, spent hours trying to get Uplay (A Ubisoft game launcher, similar to Steam or Origin, but terrible) working correctly. The version that came with the game was eons out of date, and the autopatcher for the game wasn't able to get the newest version.
Summary: When will I ever learn. So like others here, I install it, and can I just go ahead and play??? No, I have to first run some updater, OK, I do that, says I need to register on some website, I click cancel because I don't want to do that nonsense nor should I have to, so the game starts over again,...
Horrible. Doesn't even work. May crash your computer hard like it did mine.

Summary: Can't get it to work after many days trying internet fixes on high end win 8.1 machine with NVIDIA graphics. How do I get a refund? Feel free to invalidate my product code as I can't get it to run anyway.
