Haven't seen anything like this before. Brilliant game! nice work UBIsoft Montreal!!! The fighting is just amazing, from sparkling colors to the combos.. seeds collecting is bit annoying but can be fun when combined with beautifully rendered environments..

Kudos to the developers.. now this is how you do a quality port!!

FYI, this game has no DRM at all in the retail version: http://www.bluesnews.com/cgi-bin/boa...threadid=94025

Rather than praise this decision and thank Ubisoft, most people are just complaining anyway, mostly about it being a "trick" of some kind. All hail the continued negativity of most PC gamers.

I heard this had no DRM and while I don't have a problem with DRM to begin with I am happy Ubi choose to remove the possibility at all.

I really feel for devs these days. They cannot do anything right in the eyes of gamers, PC gamers especially.

Seems so .. as everyday are reporting constant 60fps on their rigs.
if thats the case i think my 9800M GTS should handle it pretty fine @1366x768 with few AAs thrown there.

I haven't played it yet, but GT says it's fun, though more for casual gamers I.E. it's not that hard.

Even better! as most PoP games can get pretty frustrating at some points due to the complex controls (K+M) and combos that are needed to perform certain actions or to overcome some obstacles.
i remember how i died like 100 times in SOT where you need to time the sequence of jumping between two walls till you reach the top (needless to say i had the crush the space bar till i got it right!)

This thing has no DRM at all, I love it. You can check some 1920x1200 4xAA screenshots I have just captured here, game is really beautiful.
