I want to give a thumbs up, but i will explain with complete honesty why i did not: game is great, game is good, game is full of fun, play it. just one issue Uplay = U-DONT-play. it barely worke on my ♥♥♥♥ computer, then i got a great comp (FINALLY) and guess what? Uplay dosnt work. Honestly if this is the route that game comps want to go, ill just go back to buying disks if that could work as an alt to NOT have to face online interfaces. Just let me play my game. I dont care about online states, Im playing a strategy game that i want to play ON MY OWN. I honestly dont care about online points or which of my freinds built the Dam before I did, I jsut want to play the game I paid money for!

P.S. I got around it by downloading Far Cry 3 again since that is attached to a more up-to-date Uplay, and some have done it just by downloading Uplay else where, but my point still stands, as sometimes even when all the planets align and everything works perfectly, Uplay decides to f you over. Hopefully we all find a work around because the devs of the game dont deserve the flak on this great game brought about by their employers

game is brilliant , But unfortunately it is launched by uplay which *will *likely crash on startup force closeing the game along side it.

*quoted from steam*
Incorporates 3rd-party DRM: TAGES™
3 machine activation limit

yeh uplay is garbage and as such i can no longer play the game i payed for because i have rebuilt my pc too many times over the past few years. Also going from windows 7 to windows 8 wastes one off your 3 DRM.

Good game but I would not buy it again. Ubisoft is one of this pathetic companies that add crappy malware into steam. This time it's called "UPLAY". You know what big publishers? We don't need you crap. First of all we bought the game over steam. So adding ♥♥♥♥♥♥ malware for piracy concerns is a joke. People can probably pirate your game anyway. BUT people who bought it over steam get the grief of non-functional, non-working malware like UPLAY. Even your damn ubisoft website crashes the browser. RESULT: GAME IS NOT FUNCTIONAL for a lot of people. As PC-Geek I could get it working after 30 minutes of research, updating ♥♥♥♥♥♥ uplay etc. STEAM should not sell games with ♥♥♥♥♥♥ malware like uplay or origin or the like. Short said: DO NOT BUY, DO NOT SUPPORT MALWARE LIKE UPLAY.

Uplay ruined a game that I was really excited to get back into. Nearly 200 hours down the drain, as Uplay and all the various fixes will not work at all.

Ubisoft is downright criminal, this Uplay thing is highway robbery

I tried everything to connect and be ABLE to play MY OWN game, went to their forum, fiddled with my system32 folder, flushed my DNS and yet, I wasn't able to connect to this godawful brainhared DRM escheme.

DO NOT BUY. Ubisoft's Uplay is a broken piece of software. Since it implements an always online DRM, this often makes the game completely UNPLAYABLE (broken ubisoft servers, buggy uplay software crashing, etc.). Steam should never have allowed something like this to be even in the store.

The game itself is fun and I will play it again but I can not recommend this game as long as UPlay is tied to it. A massive pain to install and set up (kept crashing) until UPlay magically worked and let me play the game.

Ubisoft this is the worst service you could attach to a game

WARNING : This game requires Uplay. I hope Ubisoft files for bankruptcy so we get rid of the gamer scourge called Uplay.


SIMPLY UNPLAYABLE

The game itself isn't horrendous, but the Ubisoft U-play DRM is absolutely terrible. Not worth anywhere near $30, and the DLC is pricey for how little it actually adds- most of it's just re-skins.

Additionally, I'd have to say that the gameplay is very lacking. It has 2 factions, but they play very similarly, and no matter what campaign you do most of what you build is repetitive. All in all, a poorly-made game made nearly unplayable from DRM. 3/10, would not recommend.

This game is definitely fun, but the possibility of being randomly locked out of the game due to Ubisoft not having their ♥♥♥♥ together makes it impossible to recommend.

Avoid.. Avoid.. Avoid!!!!

I wish I could comment on the game, but the invasive uPlay prevents me from playing this game I spent hard-earned cash on. I bought this game, got a CD key and registering this CD key said "This key is registered with another user" .... and will not launch.

So, if you want to toss cash down a drain, buy this DRM nightmare where legitimate buyers get screwed. But I recommend you find a crack on torrents since their DRM sucks cash from actual buyers so they cannot play the game.

This might be a good game. I sure don't know - dealing with Uplay and Ubisoft's DRM is too painful for words.

Anno 2070 offers the perfect synergy of RTS and City Building. I recommend the complete edition because the Deep Sea expansion adds a layer of extra depth to the tech trees.

In Anno 2070, the size of your city is limited only by the size of your island--and there are some really BIG islands. If for some reason you aren't satisfied with your island, build some nukes, launch them, watch the pretty mushroom clouds and then move into your newly acquired glass parking lot (island). Don't feel like remediating nuclear radiation from your newly conquered paradise? Try sabotaging your enemies' main food source--destroy an oil tanker off the coast of an enemy island (preferably next to their fish hatcheries) and while he/she scrambles to clean up the oil, harass the cleanup crew with fast attack boats or helicopters and then send in your attack units. Even better, with the Deep Sea expansion, you can create tsunamis to wipe out your enemies' coastal holdings by destroying strategically placed geothermal power plants. After all, your citizens are worth more than your enemies' citizens, especially if your enemies happen to be the Eden faction... those hippie tree-hugging ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s! Pick the Tycoons and use the power of coal and nuclear energy to crush the Eco ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s! There's no Captain Planet to help them against your rain of nuclear fire! Crush them and their tree covered islands and pave over everything with concrete!

Honestly, this game is a blast! The only reason Anno 2070 doesn't have 'Overwhelmingly Positive' reviews is because people hate on the Uplay DRM. I agree that its annoying but, its no reason to avoid one of the best city builders/rts hybrids of all-time.

EDIT: I noticed a number of people complaining that Uplay doesn't work for Anno 2070. Since I hadn't played in a few weeks I decided to boot it up and see if there was a problem. Uplay works just fine. The Steam version of Uplay is outdated. You need to update Uplay and everything works just fine.

The fix for this is so simple its mind boggling how many people fail to see it when its mentioned in numerous threads within the community hub. I know the Steam fan-boy knee-jerk reaction is to hate/blame any third party DRM so I guess I shouldn't be so surprised.
