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!

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.

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.

WARNING: If you don't like having to register with publisher-specific on-line services to play individual (or publisher-specific groups of) games... DON'T BUY THIS GAME.

This game requires registration and login into Ubisoft's unique/ publisher-specific on-line gaming service, UPlay, in order to play this game. To the best of my present knowledge, login into this service is mandatory each/ every time you play the game (it cannot be bypassed).

Personally... I HATE publisher-specific on-line gaming services (MMO's excepted). (I don't count steam into this category, as they have opened their platform to various publishers for authentication and other purposes.) I refuse to create seperate accounts with EA, Microsoft, Ubisoft, etc. (e.g., all the big publishers) so that they can track my activity, on a granular level, accross their portfolio of games (among other things). I also don't want the (further) hassle of having to maintain seperate user identities just to *play games*, like I have to already do to manage the remainder of my on-line life.

As a matter of principle... I also consider it ridiculous that I should have to log into a publisher-specific service to play what would otherwise be an off-line single-player gaming experience, with *zero* content otherwise hosted "in the cloud". (e.g., all game saves would be to local media.)

I can't give a critique on the content of the game itself, as I have been unable to play it, as I have refused to create an account on uplay.

I now have to uninstall the game that I paid good money for... Without reasonable hope of ever being able to play it. To say that I'm pi$$ed off at the moment is a monumental understatement. (Shakes fist at heavens whilst cursing Ubisoft.)

This game combines RTS with City Building and its amazing. The only reason this game 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.

I cannot get this game to work. My other UbiSoft games work fine, this one does not. Something to do with the Activation and SolidShield. I would rather have my money back to be honest.

I'm on the fence with this one... It's a great game, the graphics are nice, and the mechanics are solid. After about 2 hours of playtime in sandbox, my interest started to drop off. You build up a city, build ships, wait for materials to build a bigger city and more ships. Good for those who like city building/planning.

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.

Great game, relaxing and rewarding to watch your city grow. Many new game mechanics never done before in other games of this type, some diplomacy options and multiple ways to resove conflict, for example: economical domination, war or stealing all land for yourself forcing the opponents to confront you in one way or another.

Pros:
- great gameplay mechanics
- good graphics, animations (all buildings are animated).
- great amount of game customisation (u can choose winning conditions, island size etc)
- good balance between factions
- tons of replayability
- game never gets boring, there is always something to do and take care of.

Cons:
- AI is cheating - Unlimited resources, building patterns etc.. | its best to play the game on multiplayer mode
- Uplay might cause trouble, you must connect through it to play the game.
- ♥♥♥♥ Multiplayer servers, many connection issues when joining lobby (once the game starts its all fine)


The game itself is pure gold in the genre, its the ♥♥♥♥ drm and issues stopping the player from getting in to the game that drags this game down. I will recommend this game but be prepared to deal with all sorts of random issues at your first install, or not if you are lucky.

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 ♥♥♥♥ty 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 ♥♥♥♥ty uplay etc. STEAM should not sell games with ♥♥♥♥ty malware like uplay or origin or the like. Short said: DO NOT BUY, DO NOT SUPPORT MALWARE LIKE UPLAY.

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

This game offers a relaxing and complicated RTS experience. Most of my friends are content reaching a certain level of technology in this game because as the game progresses it gets more and more complicated. When you reach the point where you feel like you've done enough, you don't feel like you've failed at the game.

I found a fix for the "Uplay has stopped working" bug, but its still bad.
insanely slow paced, even when you go at double speed, %100 online, and other players influence your world. on the topic of other players, multiplayer is a boring affair where combat barely happens and some modes dont even put you on the same map(s).
i played for 2 days. then uninstalled it. dont even get me started on the $44 of dlc, all of the content that should be included is held by DLC paywalls.

Functionality: 1/10 It actually starts.
Computer Performance: 3/10 Rather heavy.
Gameplay: 2/10 Enjoyable for a few hours, then becomes tedious.
Graphics: 6/10 Looks beutiful when its not lagging.
Sound: 6/10 Sounds are smooth and good.
Reliabilty: 3/10 If you can get it to run, works fine but occasionally freezes on windows 7 64-bit.
Bugs: 3/10 Gamebreaking.
DLC: 1/10 Uneccesary paywalling off content that should be in the game.
Overall: 4/10 Rushed to the shelves to fill ubisoft's pockets. Would not recommend.
