Having purchased this product and played it for about a week I have to say it is the best of the Settlers series so far. Also, the game is almost completely ruined by the DRM.

Not only do you have to have a constant internet connection to play, but their servers go down quite frequently. Ubi's servers down = you cannot play a single player game you paid good money for = epic fail. I wish I could take back my purchase.

This is the last Ubisoft product I will ever buy.

Settlers 7 is a wonderfully fun game - in the little time I've actually been able to play it. However, with the DRM that Ubisoft chose for this game, I would STRONGLY advise against any customer purchasing this software. I read the warnings of other consumers before I bought it, and noticed the requirements, but I thought "I have a great internet connection - I'm not going to have any troubles." How wrong I've been.

Please do yourself a favor and check over at the Ubisoft Settlers forums before you go any farther with this purchase.

Just to clarify, Ubisoft's DRM requires that:

(A) You have a constant connection to the internet while playing the game. This includes playing the single player portions of the game. I have not lost my personal internet connection even once while playing.

(B) You are able to connect and validate on their servers. This is the killer. Their servers have been down almost every time I've attempted to play. There are numerous posts on the forums where other users are experiencing the same issue: My internet is up, your server is down. The only communication from Ubisoft at this point is "we're looking at it."

To make matters worse, if you lose (A) or (B) during your game (even single player), your game will lock up, crash to the desktop, or occasionally simply notify you that the network connection has been lost and then exit to the desktop "gracefully." Please notice that *none* of these "connection lost" options include the ability to save your game.

Buyer beware.

Would you buy a TV that you can only watch half the time (hours not chosen by you) for full price?

Then why would you buy this?

You can not play without your internet connection. Also, having a good internet connection means nothing if their servers are down or your having problems connecting to them.

I love all the Settlers games, and was excited to hear that the newest one was available for purchase. Silly me, I did not do my research before buying the digital download from D2D. Three days after purchase, I still have not been able to access the game due to "Server not available" errors and "This game requires and internet connection to play" errors. When I checked Ubisoft's tech support forums, I discovered that this issue has been affecting tons of paying customers since March, and the company is remaining mum on a real solution.

I have an always-on internet connection. I have updated my anti-virus software. I have modified my firewall. I have tried literally every half-baked suggestion I have found on the tech support forums, which are the same ones being suggested to me by the company's shoddy customer service department.

Today I have officially given up, and will be demanding a refund for this non-working product. I understand the desire for copy protection and I ALWAYS put money in the hands of companies that make the games I enjoy, and Ubisoft has decided to reward me by making my game unplayable while the pirates are enjoying their DRM-free version of the game within days of official release. Until this company changes its ways, I strongly recommend against buying any of its products.

I guess ubisoft doesn't care about the customers that have slow internet or want to play on a computer not connected to the internet. Bad Idea for them, they have completely lost my business and I have been purchasing games from them for over 25 years.

I have long been a fan of the Settlers. While Settlers 7 does improve upon some of the criticisms of the last game, they have actually managed to make others worse. And to top of the whole fiasco Ubi Soft has decided to use this game as a vehicle to launch the most intrusive form of DRM seen yet.

For starters the game switches to a more true 3D aspect, while this may sound improved... it's not. The problem is it tends to be much more difficult to move around the map and control the camera. I understand the desire to improve the graphics but switching from a more 2D isometric view to 3D is not always needed. Secondly town building has become much more cluttered and your villages will end up feeling like gigantic messes.

Lastly and the most damning thing for this game in my opinion is Ubi Soft's inclusion of a new form of DRM. You are now required to log into Ubi's servers to conduct just about every action you do with this game outside of playing. To launch the game, load the menu, save a game or load a game you must connect you Ubi's servers. If you cannot connect (playing on a laptop, serving overseas or your ISP goes down) you can not play or save/load any games. Not only must you connect to Ubi's servers but you must also have a Ubi Soft account. It's also worth keeping in mind that ALL your saved games have been hijacked by Ubi and are now stored on their servers and not your computer.
