I think they lost allot of customers pulling the steam version as this game is not getting much attention at all, I probably would have bought it on release if they did.

So is it worth buying?

Yes it is, much improved over the original game. Very awesome combat, so much stuff to do and collecting things actually seems to have a purpose this time.

The Steam preorder has been a top seller since it started.

Sounds like you live in an area Ubi does not sell to on Steam then. I assure you it is there, it was #4 on top sellers during pre-orders, now that it is out in Europe it is #2 right behind Battlefrield BC2.

It's not available in the UK, why make it available on steam only in certain countrys?

Yay more DOS attacks on the DRM Servers! Gotta love the anti-DRM mindset.

This whole situation just shows that Ubisoft's decision to put this kind of copy protection in their current and future PC games is unwanted and should be reconsidered by the company.
Really?

Why does the gaming media never, ever call pirates and hackers out as the scum they are? Oh yeah, it's because they read their websites. Nevermind.

Since we have no confirmation of a working crack yet I assume this is angry pirates trying to shake things up, and of course the idiot masses praise them for striking against the man.

Makes me sick. And when my copy comes in the mail tomorrow and I can't play because of these assholes it is only ME they are hurting, no one else.

i thought i read this was isolated to a small french server.... i seriously hope their server logic is better than having NA players validate against a French server. What I don't understand is the moron that didn't think of this situation while coming up with this DRM system. What if a castrophic event (ie hurricane/earthquake) occurs in your server area... you can't play? I'd like to slap the moron that thought that's acceptable
