Some having issues, some others don't. Could be the hardware or the game. But knowing that they make games more 'optimized' for consoles now-a-days, it is no surprise that PC might have issues with them. I'll just wait till all issues are fixed.

Personally I think the game is overrated. It's not what it's supposed to be. There are dozen of weakness in the gameplay mechanism. Not only that hacking is only fun while playing a story mission the hacking elements itself are too limited, you need a single hand to count what can be hacked only.

Moreover if one of the civilians calls the cops it doesn't matter how stealth you move away, as soon as the call has been finished the police starts searching for you exactly where you currently are, pretty annoying.

It's a triple A title so it makes fun but from all the hype I've expected more. From the system requirements I've expected a smoother gameplay and a better graphic. The story is also not very interested. A man's daughter died, he is on revenge and so on.

THIS! Glad someone feel that way. Way too much hype for something that, well, at least if you are into tech and stuff, should not surprise you. Also a huge portion of the game seems to have events that trigger certain things. You have no choice in making alternate choice to get away from those. (Yup watching the walkthrough on multiple youtubers' channels).

As for story...it's nothing new. Most story writers in games tend to not pay serious attention; because now a days it's all about going gun ho on everything. Gameplay takes precedence over story. Not that there aren't good story based games out there, but most of them tend to not have them. Serious, mature, well thought out stories are hard to find.

Overrated? You bet. But that's what marketing does. Brainwashing to buy a game. Gladly it's on steam. So will wait for a nice chunky price drop before picking this one up.

I agree. This title is overrated...many would say its a matter of opinion, but let's see how long it holds interests. This game does have SERIOUS potential though, hopefully it is modifiable,i see the modding community doing a number on it if it is.

So far I am liking it a lot. So versatile in the way you can do things multiple ways.

One thing that bothered me was the sound.... even up full it was very very quiet. Had to boost the volume in Windows a lot more than normal to get to hear it.

Any one getting a system crash after a few min of game play?
I'm running a ASUS Geforce 780Ti i7-2600k 3.4g 16gb Ram win7 Pro 64bit. I've e-mailed uplay as well as Nvidia but we all know how long it takes them to get back to someone with real info. I was just hopping one of you surfers may have seen something around the web about it. thanks and all that kiss kiss hug hug crap !

Well, the game has potential, the issue for me is the stuttering, which shouldn't be happening and the stealth viability is non-existant, you do anything and they all move to you, even if the activity is on the otherside of an area, they all ignore it and move to you, like you are activating a beacon.

I am really, really loving it. Especially with the trainer!

Seriously though, its basically Person of Interest: the Game. If there was any mod I would pay cash for, it would be to make Aiden a woman called Root.

No impressed by the driving physics all that much but everything is damn solid. Its not quite graphically on a par with GTA but tbh, i dont think Ubisoft threw anywhere near as much cash/talent at the game as Rockstar do.

I'm so very happy with it.

+1 about the sound, Wolfenstein suffers from low sound too..
