Anyone have it yet, if so, how is it? I am surprised no one had mentioned anything about it. Perhaps Empire Total War and DoW 2 kept it out of the limelight.

I kind of care, as I like the Clancy universe, but the demo on 360 was pretty horrid. It might play better on PC, but I wouldn't know as they haven't released a demo.

this whole voice activated RTS idea was just bad

Thunderous roar of indifference.

Here's the launch trailer. It reminds me of WiC in a way. It also looks fun, but we all know how tricky these marketing videos are, especially from Ubi.

WIC is so much better than this pos. I was really interested when it first came out then when they screwed us pc gamers by what 3 months and blamed it on pirating so i just said f it.

maybe if they cared enough to co-release it on PC.

ubisoft games are a disaster waiting to happen.

The demo works surprisingly well for me. I found it great fun. Just the demo that is. I can't see the full game being than the demo over and over again LOL.

From what I´ve understood it isnt really a PC game, hence the problem...
If you put effort in making a console RTS, I cant see how it could compete on PC with the strong RTS titles on this platform.

I've read some PC reviews and they actually say the game isn't too bad, just very simply. There are two things that make me not interested though: the camera is attached to units due to the console controls, not an overhead normal RTS view, and there is no story at all supposedly, just skirmish and multiplayer.

Would it have really killed Ubi to modify the camera to a normal RTS mode for PC?

Perhaps a mod can add it? I liked the 360 demo, but would prefer this one on PC. Once I'm done with DOW2 that is. :;):

I played this, and it's ridiculously bad. Extremely simplisic, seems made for console kiddies.

World in Conflict has a similar idea and theme and such, go play that instead.

Seems made for console? It WAS made for console!

I agree. WiC is better, I should play it again. I gave up as my PC kept crashing, but I has a new one now. ::D:

Really looking foward to Empire Total War. It's getting some very high early reviews. Many saying it's the best Total War game yet.
