TL;DR: You are better of with the Legend of Grimrock I and II. Uplay DRM sucks. Ubisoft. Go ♥♥♥♥ yourselves.
My first Might and Magic game was Might and Magic 3, on DOS.
I bought this due to Nostalgia.
What's the difference between a virus and Uplay? A virus works.
Seriously. It's more like UPRAY the damn thing works.
Now I know why their logo looks like a sphincter, because I got ♥♥♥♥ed in the ♥♥♥.
They changed my ubi.com account to a uplay because '♥♥♥♥ you' that's why. But, then there was a password breach.
Now. I can't log into my other account. 'Forget Password' is a button that does nothing. ...NOTHING!
When creating another account in-game it says Ubisoft's servers are down.
Ubisoft servers seem to go down more often than a two dollar hooker.
Yet, I was able to create an account on their webpage.
Why does it work on the website but not in-game? Because '♥♥♥♥ you', that's why.
Seriously ♥♥♥♥ YOU Ubisoft. I only bought this POS for nostalgia (and regretted it 20 minutes later). If you're an Ubisoft executive, you should go castrate yourself. You're too stupid to breed.
The 40 minutes of trying to bypass the UPLAY DRM just to play the damn game somewhat tarnished my feelings towards the rest of the game.
Oh for ♥♥♥♥ sake. This is a perfect example of how NOT to do an intro.
You get this amazing rambling piece of ♥♥♥♥, while this wonderfully rendered woman reads a book. Exciting? No. It's like Grandpa Simpson...tons of references, and naming of locations I have no clue about.
Imagine the fantasy version of this:
"We can't bust heads like we used to, but we have our ways. One trick is to tell 'em stories that don't go anywhere - like the time I caught the ferry over to Shelbyville. I needed a new heel for my shoe, so, I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on 'em. Give me five bees for a quarter, you'd say.
Now where were we? Oh yeah: the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn't have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones..."
That's our intro. The 2D art in the book was nice. It would have been better if these 'Raiders' matched my character.
Once in the game, It looked like Unreal Tournament or Quake 3. I had the graphics maxed out. I am rolling with a Titan here. It has to be a bug. But this was my play experience.
I found it funny there's a retro option to make the graphics suck more.
VOICES: Oh great voices! Oh wait. They give you a line, and you have to read the rest. The character's mouths don't move.
It's like I got a game from the late 1990s. Well, steam offers old games... what is the release date? RELEASE DATE 2014?!?!
Oh ♥♥♥♥ you. Legend of Grimrock was made by an indie studio with almost no budget and looks so much better. This game wishes it was Legend of Grimrock II.
At this point, I gave up. This is an indie title made by a big publisher. Poor Developers, they probably would have better luck if they ditched Ubisoft and started a Kickstarter project to fund the game. Ubisoft makes you their ♥♥♥♥♥es and you have to see your work covered in a piece of ♥♥♥♥ like UPlay. I have no interest in playing anymore of your game.
OVERALL: If you REALLY want to play this... I'd recommend pirating this game than buying it. Ubisoft will blame their ineptitude on piracy anyways. The executives are ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. Buy LoG I and II.
