Uplay destroys an otherwise great game.

Summary: I bought this through steam. It crashes every 23 minutes. I'm sure it's the DRM. Ubisoft is aware of the problem and has done NOTHING to fix it. Don't support draconian DRM like Uplay. Buy another non Ubisoft game instead. Teach the idiot suits not to penalize the people who actually pay for their games. DRM does not stop piracy, it only makes paying costumers angry.
Beautiful game, action packed, even on rookie mode these missions are tough

Summary: UPDATE 5/11/14: I may have judged this game too soon, as I'm finding that the more missions I complete, the better I have learned the nuances of stealth, panther, and assault modes. Plus, now having tons of cash to unlock different loadouts and weapons it has made it much easier to get through these missions, even on rookie mode. So based on continuing to push through and learn as much as I can about the game and the unique gameplay, I'm upgrading my review to 4 stars!
One of those gems that should have gotten more attention

Summary: Been a Splinter Cell fan all the way through Double Agent. Never played Conviction due most of the stealth elements being absent. So when I saw that Blacklist came back to Splinter Cells root's, I was pretty happy. Online is great, Spies vs. Mercs couldn't be better, and the single player is fun and engaging. Not sure why this game never sold more units, really fun game with a lot of control in the players hands.
Owned it for 3 months, still cannot play it due to technical glitches

Summary: I really want to play this game, but so far UBISOFT has not fixed the crashing problems. There are so many issues, too. Initially, I could not get the game to even get to title screen. Followed 'fix' and now game has to be booted in a window (stinks). Once the initial movie plays and I try to pause to make changes in options I get a either a crash then or a crash upon accepting changes to video options or sound.
Summary: I've successfully downloaded and installed two other Ubisoft games, Far Cry 3 and Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag, via UPlay recently so didn't think much when downloading Splinter Cell Blacklist but upon installation it gets to a point where it keeps popping up file corruption errors. Proceeded to cancel the installation and perform a download validation to fix the broken pieces.
