This is my review of Singleplayer Mode since in Multiplayer no one is online.
There are no servers online or people playing it.
You can create your own server but you need some friends as no one is playing.
First of all you need to play at least an hour before the game actually 'starts' as it takes time before there is a storyline which actually does 'catch' the player and also leaves the feeling behind of being in 'training' (press button X to fart and Y to have a good look at your weenie).
Aiming is not that bad everything just points towards video game console playing instead of pc gaming which is not good.
But here it comes, after playing towards the end you will enter the missing Shattered Mountain.
At stage three of this mission you have to eliminate two key figures within a time frame and you must not loose your distance with your targets....
You should already get what I mean, you can try over and over and over and over again ...
This is a new type of gameplay which is being introduced by Ubisoft Paris.
They just invented the never ending game, one without an end because you can not finish it unless you tried at least a 100 times ...
To meet the gamers wants, because they pay for this 'fantastic' piece of art Ubisoft uses savepoints instead of letting you save whenever you want.
But there is no save point so you can start each time over and over and over again, fight the good fight and after 10 min start all over again.
But this is not it, Ubisoft Paris thinks you may have brain damage of are out of memory.
You might loose the 'catchy' storyline so they let you watch the intro of the mission over and over and over again before you can start playing this level which you can play over and over and over again before you might be able to finish the game.
Also, a lot of times in singleplayer, during the fight your teammembers are more an annoyance instead of a help thanks to the AI. They bump into you while aiming moving you when trying to shoot the enemy, or when trying to shoot suddenly run in front of you.
This is game maybe fun when in coop mode, did not try it.
Singleplayer : Gameplay 0/10
Thanks a lot Ubisoft and this is the reason why I only buy games at lowprice because after 30 years of gaming I learned one thing: I never pay full price because most of the times I feel like I am being framed when buying games like these.
To all gamers, never buy DLC before trying the actual game because you might end up spending a lot of money for a game which turns out to be nothing.
This game also uses Ubiplay and thus does not plays from Steam directly.
This means long loading times before getting to the start game menu and especially long 'end game' sessions so I use Taskmanager to end the game because I have better things to do wasting time in waiting.
I really started to like this game untill I got to level shattered mountain, here Ubisoft totally messed up.
