Firstly let me state that i have been an avid silent hunter game fan from the dawn of the first Silent Hunter, right through to Silent Hunter 4. Now Ubisoft have brought out Silent Hunter 5 i was, like most fans, awaiting a fantastic game, how disappointed was i.
The graphics are on a par to Silent Hunter 4 but the major thing that lets the game down is the paranoid vision that Ubisoft have about Software Piracy, and the fact that you have to be connected at ALL TIMES to their server to play this game.
Now i know that not everyone has a 200Mps internet connection, but i live on Anglesey and the internet speed at best is 512kbps, when the wind is blowing in the right direction, theres a full moon etc etc. So sometimes my internet connection is down or very slow at best. Ubisoft...you have made a massive goof in my eyes and i just hope either you will redeem this and get rid of the ridiculous idea of constant online connection, if not then you might well loose your fan base for this game, i will not be buying this game until you sort this out. Other buyers beware...You have been warned!
