    I'd just read this today as well. Someone posted a link below Yahtzee's review. :D

    Been a while since I played a Ubisoft Game. Seems like it's still the same stuff nowadays, though.

    Their big games are mostly recycled trash hyped to oblivion.

    Some of the smaller, niche games are still good though.

    Sadly, even the smaller games seem to get slapped with Uplay.

    As far as publishers/megadevelopers go, Ubisoft is in the top 3 worst on my list. There are times when I even hate them more than EA and Blizzard.

    You hate Blizzard? Most people seem to adore them. Me, I wouldn't buy a game from Blizzard as I find that they tend to go from enjoyable at first but by the end they tend to be in the category refuse-to-play-on-principle.

    EA I don't buy because they push their origin everywhere.

    Ubisoft... eh, can't think of a game of theirs lately that I would be interested in playing. A big meh.

    Blizzard hasn't been a decent company since the early 2000s as far as I'm concerned.

    Those three are then (very) closely followed by Activision (which is joined at the hip with Blizzard anyway), Capcom, and Square Enix. All of these have pretty much stopped caring in the last decade.

    Also, whatever part of Microsoft is responsible for games. Actually, scratch that. I hate all of Microsoft. GFWL should be gone in a few weeks though, so that's something.

    The only Ubisoft game I can recall playing recently was Far Cry 2. Gave up half way through due to the tedium. That game was a sequel to the original in name only.

    And that's why I don't buy mainstream games until they're under 5€ on steam and have been reviewed by one or two critics whom I actually respect.
