    Took ages to download.

    Crashed within 2.5 mins while changing setup options

    Worked ok after that.

    Cannot Invert Mouse?
    Cannot customise keys...

    Getting about 38fps in 4k on my system.

    Seems better than I was expecting, though I can see why people say this game has little to no replay value.
    Good GFx for the era

    Cannot invert mouse, Really!!? That is so Annoying!

    EDIT:
    It is still sucking up to 7.2Mbps steadily of my upload bandwidth

    ...It copied 25.7GB of data to a random HDD of mine where is is uploading those files P2P style from. Strange thing to do.

    I installed to C:\Games\GameSessions = 25.7GB (as you would expect)
    It is uploading data from I:\Temp\GameSessionsInstallFiles = 25.7GB (there was no indication given of it planning to make this folder and double the install size in effect)

    Very odd way of doing things. Not impressed.

    An hour into download and its only at 12GB. Steam would have already completed. If the game really shutsdown in 2 minutes I may as well quit and delete.

    The game was actually quite nice. Not everything needs to be an open world with crafting :p

    It was quite the nice campaign and the combat was Batman-like but with spears and shields and a LOT of blood. I liked it.

    Well no one wants to buy it but probably can't hardly even give it away. I suspect if their next two projects flops which appears it will judging by the gameplay then Crytek will probably be done.

    I can confirm that this is not a scam.
    Just played about 15 minutes no crashing whatsoever,
    and in five minutes you get a message that game is activated.
    Checked in ganesessions under my account and the game is listed as owned.

    The game ended itself early for me in single player ("Session ended") before it could activate, but I played Gladiator mode and there it activated fine.

    yes and no... beautifull game exept strange looking blood... sadly the gameplay is outdated and boredom "ryse" more than fun :banana:

    the game is free after some time (and info ;) )

    But it look very crashy compared to Steam version on the same computer.

    strange...

    wouldn't stay running for 5 minutes to activate. Messaged them and called them out for this fact. Bad impression of a soon to die service.

    Same problem. Session closes after 2 mins all the time. Major suckage and time wasted. Not even worth this free game and bandwidth! :bang::)

    Did you try to play Gladiator mode? It didn't crash and unlocked fine there for me.

    Also make sure to close any overlay software as well as set FSAA and Anisotropic Filtering settings to "Application Controlled" and MFAA off.

    Played this a while back, lame button bashing swinging your sword around kills anybody with ease. I uninstalled it as it after about 30 mins, not even worth pirating tbh.

    Yeah. It activated in Gladiator mode... How stupid, considering MP is "disabled".
    Anyway, Gladiator mode solved one other issue with this game for me.

    It has one of worst camera setup, controls/mechanics, and fighting enjoyment ever...

    Now it is all solved by uninstall and removal of "GameSessions".

    Bach to PoE beta. So good. Feels flawless in contrast.
