I have finished about 1/3 of the game. So far so good. I would love to give it thumbs up. But unfortunatelly i will have to do the opposite.

I cannot continue.
On first day everything was fine. Uplay and steam worked fine together. Accounts were conected and i have seen no problems.
Day after - Uplay doesn't allow me to log in. "Too many log-in attempts". Rubbish. If 0 is too many then f*** you ubisoft. Click on play offline - to play offline log in to your account... Argh...

UPlay is steaming piece of s***.

AVOID BUYING ANYTHING THAT REQURES DOUBLE DRM (especially if second drm is uplay).
Sadly CoJ:TC is one of those games.

:(

UPDATE!

Uplay kindly allowed me to log in after some time, and I was able to finish the game. Still cannot recommend it. On highest possible difficulty game was easy and I was still dying all the time because of technical issues (for example killed by enemy that fell below the ground xD).
Driving in this game is terrible (and they made too many parts that needs driving). Shooting is nice and story is decent (especially endings). AI is probably worst AI created ever and your companions deal almost no damage. Game was designed for co-op, but you won't find anybody to play with.


SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT for Achievement hunters.
Achievements are broken. Probably because of double DRM.
Haven't received Achievo for beating game on hardest difficulty.
In the middle of the story - game stopped counting towards some achievements (fe. kill 30 people in slow motion), while other were working.
Turning off steam cloud, setting uplay to offline mode, deleting all saves (in steam and uplay) and reinstalling game helped with some achievements. But not with the one for beating game in hardest difficoulty - looks like this one is impossible to get.


SUMMARY:
DON'T BUY THIS
Bloom effect will burn your eyes, technical issues will frustrate you and double DRM will do everything to not let you even launch the game.

Thanks to Uplay I can't play this game, therefore I cannot recommend it if it comes to my point of view. Shame, because I like Call of Juarez serie a lot. I don't know how the game really is, so bear in mind I wrote thie negative review due to having problems with running it.

I had ZERO problems with UPlay, really. It worked fine for me all the way.

Don't let my playtime fool you, that was me trying to go around the many problems in this game.

I really wanted to say this game is good, it has good elements, like the three distinct storylines but that's about it.
Bugged, poorly polished, typos, bad action. This game shouldn't be sold. This is the major regret in games I bought.
You can't even finish the achievements since the "play on hard" cheevo simply won't unlock (That's my playtime, I played through the game 3 times, on hard, and it did not unlock).

Simple: don't buy it, even heavily discounted. Play the other ones, this one is just... Ugh!

This game is not as horrible as I was led to believe. It's... inoffensively bland I guess? Which is not good if your game follows the excellent Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood.
It was okay to play through and I didn't encounter anything so bad that would make me stop, with the helicopter fights coming close though. Some levels were fun, and it was nice to revisit Juarez's fort from CoJ & CoJ:BiB, now fallen into disrepair.

4 silver sloths.
