Conclusion: I bought this game to play on my normally very stable and reliable Windows Vista x64 PC platform (ASUS Maximus Formula, Q6600 3.0GHz, HD Raedon 3870X2, 4GB 1066 DDR2 RAM). It may be 18 months old but there is still more than enough specification to run this game at full detail and since I had only days before rebuilt it with all the latest drivers and Vista service packs, I didn't expect any problems...
Conclusion: I was looking forward to this after enjoying playing the first game. I was left completely dissapointed with this game. It takes itself to seriously and the biggest pain is having to be permanently online all the time to play it. Absolutely ridiculous, I'm on a dongle. I will never buy a game with this type of activation again from Ubisoft again. A good game spoiled.
Conclusion: I was so close to buying it until i saw the pc equivalent to danger sign, that being Permanent internet connection required!!! Not everyone wants to connect to internet to play a game.I made this mistake with C&C never again.So UBiSoft there is nothing wrong with having to connect to internet to authenticate but tied to it to play game is a BIG NO NO!!!!
Conclusion: This game is pretty good if you like ace combat/ hawx style arcade flying games. Not one for the realism buffs but its quite fun. however the better graphics on pc are really not worth the drm that you have to put up with to get them. If you don't have a great internet connection or even if you have to share it like i do then forget about playing this game without constant interruption as it tells you it cant find the server.
Summary: Die Kampagne ist ein Witz. Ich war in 5 1/2 Spielstunden durch. Das die Story völliger Quark ist, verzeihe ich einem action-orientierten Spiel, der Name Tom Clancy (hat seine besten Zeiten lange hinter sich) sagt in dem Zusammenhang eigentlich schon alles. Das Missionsdesign hat mir im ersten Teil wesentlich besser gefallen, es war deutlich abwechslungsreicher und glaubwürdiger. Und warum kann ich mein Flugzeug und meine Bewaffnung nicht mehr selber auswählen?
