No love for PC players.
on July 1, 2012
First off the good:
Campaign is interesting.
Gunsmith mode provides a great experience for people who like to tinker.
Then the bad:
DO NOT BUY THE PC VERSION GAME IF YOU WANT TO PLAY CAMPAIGN WITH FRIENDS.
DO NOT BUY THE PC VERSION GAME IF YOU WANT TO PLAY PROPER MULTIPLAYER.
You can't play with your friends 90% of the time.
I specifically purchased this game in order to have a similar experience to Rainbow Six Vegas series, a modernized third per person shooter with tons of customization which you could play with your friends.
Within the second mission, the game desynced, making me and my friend unable to continue the story. Being average PC players we tried to do a workaround, so we skipped that part by playing it solo and then proceeded to go to the next mission. Then we came across another problem: Whoever hosted (we tried hosting, both of us) got stuck in infinite loading. This occurred for many missions. Other times the host would crash with different errors.
We've tried everything, updating drivers, rolling back drivers, direct connections to modem, port fowarding. Everything. Nothing has worked.
I've also tried playing multiplayer. It's even worse then the CoD system. When you migrate hosts, you don't start where you were, YOU HAVE TO RESPAWN. Other times, YOU SIMPLY DISCONNECT.
It is obvious that there was little to no quality assurance testing done for the the PC version of the game.
I am utterly disappointed that I had paid simply to play the campaign mode alone.
