1 out of 5 eggs Sloppy game design with poor documentation 01/15/2014

This review is from: NVIDIA GIFT Holiday Bundle

Pros:

Comes bundled with many nVidia and AMD/Radeon based cards.

Cons:

- The promo redemption server was down for more than 2 days.
- Both games force the user to use Ubisoft's Uplay service/store.
- The Uplay app. (steam wanna be) is required to download and install the games.
- Sorry steam users this bundle does not allow for easy steam download/install.

Ubisoft does not supply a manual (paper or electronic) outside of their games. There is some documentation within the games but they are poorly done. The target audience of the in-game documentation is players who have prior experience with previous game releases. Simply put the in-game documentation is inadequate (both games).

I spent over 2 hrs in the starting areas because I didn't understand how to go about completing the quests and their wasn't enough info./feed back to problem solve beyond exhaustive random searching.

I read every manual of every product I buy (habit of an engineer).

Other Thoughts:

Any video game publisher that is too _lazy_ to include a simple yet high quality piece of product documentation, in electronic or paper (aka dead tree format), that is outside of the game product, does NOT deserve your entertainment dollars (Pesos/Euros/Wons/Yens/Pounds).

Avoid Ubisoft games/products. Video card manufacturers need to start looking at other game publishers for bundling opportunities.
