[to be read in a calm voice]
This is my first review of the game, that I didn't play (till now). So why am I writing this?
Don't get me wrong: AC4 is probably great. That's why I bought it.
But it needs UPlay and here problem begins. I neither need it nor want it, no matter what it offers and whats more important - I simply don't believe it works. And now I have one more reason for it> after you download about 30GB, it needs to connect, you can't immediately play in offline mode. When UPlay doesn't work, you are screwed. If there is a server maintenance, overload, DDOS or just anything wrong, you are screwed.
Today UPlay doesn't work for me (trust me, I tried all the usual stuff as reinstall and so on..) and I know it's not Steams fault and all that is because a thing I don't like, I don't want and I don't use.
It's my fault. I broke my own rule.
For a long time I don't buy games, that requires 3rd party stuff. I never had use for them, didn't create even more accounts, avatars or profiles. And I never will. Also I'm an old fart so I remember those days, when if you bought a game, it wasn't "right to use it for period of time on specific service", it was actually _YOURS_. Thats why I love GOG and Indie developers so much.
Steam is a different story, but it's a sevice that I CHOSE to use. Also I honestly think it tries to improve itself and I get the feeling Valve loves gamers, do not treat them like enemies that must be punished in advance, because "pirates".
Do I recommend this game?
Of course I won't hate it just for what happened to me. But in order to help you with your decision, all I can say is: "Please, take a few seconds and think about WHAT and WHO do you support".
Next time I will. Breaking of own rules is stupid, anyway.
