    The hype sold the game, not the actual contents of the game. Such a disappointment.

    PC gamers should not buy this console port period.

    I bought the deluxe version £45 on steam and deleted it after 20 hours play.

    The game is average at best and the problems with Uplay made me not want to play it much at all which is a shame as I was looking forward to this game a lot but it didn't live upto the hype.

    Out of those 4 million sold how many times will it run above 30 fps? Not many.

    Let me see if I can be a Elitist gamer or brainless follower. Ahem.. Man I hate UBI soft, worst game ever. Biggest console port I've seen, did they even try? Gameplay and graphics is worse than Aliens Colonial Marines. They will never see my money ever again! Neither will Gearbox, EA, Eidos Interactive, PopCap Games, Rockstar Games, Square Enix, Valve etc.. Screw them all. I am too good for all of them! I never have anything good, nice or positive to say about any game ever because I am an elitist PC gamer! No game can and will not ever live up to my standards. I even agree with others even if I haven't played the game because its the cool things to do "copy everything other people say". Really though, I happen to believe if 50% or more of the people who complain did not read any reviews, did not watch game videos or read poor comments on forums or YouTube. If they would play a game start to finish with no knowledge of negative people talking crap. They would have a different opinion on a lot of games.

    Now for myself, I like the game and I'm having plenty of fun with it. It also happens to run pretty good on my PC on High to Ultra settings. Is it the best game ever, no. Its far from horrible. Its too bad its running bad for a lot of people but hopefully that performance patch they are speaking of will be out soon. Anyways.. I am having fun and that matters most for every game I play. **** what other people think or say. I don't let the BS I read affect my opinion on a game. I don't know if anyone else has noticed but there are some people on this forum "no names" that no matter what game comes out and no matter how good it is, they always have something bad to say and never like any game. Why even have nice gaming PC if you're going to be that way... makes no sense. Remember people, fun! First and foremost, have fun! If its not fun anymore it's time to find a new hobby.

    I feel like this is a very important highlight in bold that you should reread before diving head first into criticising other opinions.

    :grad: I like the game also and its been running good. I bet some of those bashing the game didn't even buy it, meaning they pirated it. Some even said so on the comments of the performance review the day before the game was released.

    Believe it or not this game isn't a console port at all.

    The game engine was made for consoles in mind but not ported.

    It's just very badly optimised for PC, they seem to put all the work into the console versions.

    I don't think i even put an hour into the game yet as the stuttering is putting me off playing it. :( Just hope the performance patch they promised fixes the insane amount of Vram needed to play even mid-high settings.

    I'd say a huge amount of pc gamers still have only 1gb of vram and this game is not worthy of a gfx card upgrade just for more video ram.

    Also forgot to mention, this game is a freebie with all gfx cards on that UK site that never gets mentioned on here. You know the one i mean right, well they even give the game away with gfx cards that aren't even able to play it. lol

    Just wish i had bought the 4gb evga 760 now :(
