Still waiting for the download to finish, at 20GB it's taking a little while.
Edit: Also, Uplay is the worst. After a 18.7GB download that happened in three hours, I then had to wait another 15 minutes for Uplay to update itself... a 60MB program took 15 minutes to download and update.
The new voices for Sam is pretty annoying too. Sam Fisher used to be highly recognizable as soon as you heard him speak, and now he just sounds like any other guy on the team.
Also, while I appreciate Ubi's efforts to skip the title screens and throw me directly into the game (you literally pick a difficulty and then the opening cutscene starts), it turns out to be a pain in the ass. One, they've entirely misjudged PC gamers in general if they don't think most of us want to tweak all of the graphical settings beforehand. Secondly, and more importantly, when the cutscene finishes, it puts you into the tutorial... except even though the difficulty selection I chose was done so with the controller, when I finally get into the game, the controller is disabled and I have to re-connect my wireless keyboard in order to enable controller support in-game.Edited by jhoff80 - 8/20/13 at 5:58pm
