Ubisoft cannot keep their servers running; can't even play...
1 week ago
Summary: I downloaded Far Cry 3, which went well through Steam, but now I cannot play it at all because I'm forced to setup a Uplay account. The Ubisoft server is unavailable - and I'm seeing that is the case for many of their games on an ongoing basis. Awful.
Summary: This software with all its copyright protections and working with Steam and the internet was a nightmare. It rendered the software unusable for me. I am sure others had great reports but I would contact Ubisoft and they would say its Steam. I got tired of excuses and gave up. The game is gathering dust on the shelf unused.
Summary: The game requires it to be run using ubisoft's version of steam, uplay. Uplay is a complete piece of trash. because of it, the game constantly lags and you can only get about 10 minutes in before the entire game crashes on you and you loose all progress. It is because of uplay that I will never buy another ubisoft game again. Please do not waste your money as the game won't even work properly.
Summary: The game logged in steam, so that's good. However, Ubisoft require you to play the game in UPlay for additional DRM, which is horrible. The game wouldn't even launch for me, it just crash on start up. I spoke to a representative from amazon, they told me to contact Ubisoft. I did and spent 2 weeks doing their requests with changing this file, that file, turnoff antivirus, disable all other start-up programs...
Summary: The tips for reviewing products suggests: "Be Considerate: Use proper language and grammar; do not offend others who may have different points of view". This is ironic considering FarCry 3 is about as offensive as you can get. The game is polluted with language that would make a sailor blush. The story is ridiculous and game play is a giant leap backward from FarCry 2 - which is one of the best games ever. What a disappointment.
