Summary: I have bought this game, because I read DRM is no more. I would like to confirm it. I disabled internet, started steam offline and then U-play popped up and asked me if I wish to start off-line. I did this and I was able to load my previous game in offline mode. The only difference, which I spotted is the ability to play multiplay -which kind of makes sense, if you don't have internet, why do you need multiplayer.
Summary: Very good game. 113 hours played atm. I love it. There is all the time some DLC to complete it. Try it and have a good trip. I love this game. many choices are possible, drive steam, diesel or electric train, all missions are explain and before to begin you know if they are easy or not, time required to complete is also given. And many things else.
Summary: I like this game cause its the best Rail Simulation game in Full HD 1080p and it has great physics also it was kinda shaky from the start due to less US content but they are making more and more every year. Amtrak content right now as i write this and i'm saving my money to buy it all and also if SEPTA is in the future i will also buy that no matter how much i gotta pay!
Summary: I don't understand the rationale some reviewers have against other reviewers downrating the game because of its horrendous DRM. Believe it or not, the DRM is a HUGE gameplay issue. As a person who travels, I am restricted to playing this single player game to only times where I can access wifi.
Summary: Dumb Story, weak strategy, horrible DRM. This game is nothing like the Settlers series that came before it and has destroyed the franchise in my opinion. Whatever you may have loved about the Settlers, is all gone. Whats left is a cartoony impersonation without any real strategy. If it weren't for some quality work on the graphics side, I would give this game a zero.
Summary: 9 points for the game itself. 1 Point for the DRM. So ... 5/10. It remember every others settlers games, maybe sometime a little bit "previous-version-like". 1 point for this annoying DRM which prevented us from playing our game for days and days. Each time server is offline, or crashed, we can't play the game. With this protection, they killed the game.
Summary: This has the dumbest story and characters I have seen in a long time. You play some silver spoon princess looking to attack some land her daddy gave her an order to or some crap. The dialog was physically painful for me to have to listen to. Not really because of the acting, but because of how generic the story was. And the DRM. Well what more can be said? All in all, it's kind of fun, but I would stick with the old Sierra games and save the headaches.
Summary: This outlandish DRM by Ubisoft is unacceptable , this will be in bargain buckets faster than you can blink .. and even then it will be too much. as someone else said who cares about the game when it has this appalling DRM attached to it ... wake up and smell the coffee Ubisoft gamers wont put up with it these days ,plus its just making piracy worse .. idiots ....
Summary: As a long time Settlers fan I bought this game with high hopes. While nicely polished and offering a fair amount of customisability, it lackis the depth and lasting appeal of earlier games in the series. And thanks to the ridiculous DRM scheme, I have been unable to play it on the weekends on several occasions..
Summary: Thanks for the heads-up. I pay my taxes and buy my games, but I draw the line here. I've seen about every type of DRM in the last 20 years, and this is a step too far, even though I have a perfectly stable connection and it probably wouldn't affect me. Sorry Ubi, it's a matter of principle.
