4 out of 5 eggs The redemption process is sub-optimal, but it's a free $60 game 02/11/2014

This review is from: NVIDIA Gift - ASSASSIN'S CREED IV: BLACK FLAG

Pros:

AC4
Awesome game
Fun as h*ck
Be a really rad assassin
Cost $0 instead of $60

Cons:

See other thoughs.

Other Thoughts:

There is no one place that has a step by step on the different sites you have to go to in order to redeem these codes, which I think is what causes confusion with people. The code looks like a Steam code, but it doesn't work in Steam so you google to find out it's an Nvidia code, which you need to redeem for an Ubisoft code, which you need to redeem for another Ubisoft code, etc.

The redemption process:

1. Redeem code with NVidia to get a new code
2. Take new code to ubisoft site to get another new code
3. Make ubisoft account and download their standalone gaming application
4. Log into ubisoft application, redeem newest ubisoft code inside application
5. Game is now downloadable and playable

I wish this was just a Steam download, but again: free game. Clearly they want people to know about their standalone gaming offering/community, so you can't fault them for that.

It's a tiny hassle to set up a couple new accounts I'll never use, but the game runs perfectly and does everything else as expected so, I have no real complaints.
