Thumbs down Is it worth it?

consider this:

No 16:10 support
No 1920x1200 support
No 2560x1440 support
No Logitech G25/G27 support
No Crossfire or SLI support
No Post Processing/HDR lighting
1€=$1 price tag
Ubisoft DRM

PS: I preordered this game

Ouch...that is certainly a pretty horrible list of cons. Think I'll pass. Thank you, sir.

I have a 16:9 monitor.
This is the same as #1.
This too is the same as #1.
I don't use a gaming keyboard or steering wheel setup.
I run a single graphics card.
Unfortunate, but how are the graphics anyways?
I use the $.
This is the only issue in this list for me. Some people say you only need the initial registration, after that you never have to connect to Ubisoft again. Confirm/Deny?

I read this from patch 1.03

Added support for Logitech G27 Steering Wheel.
· Game now supports very high screen resolutions (up to 2560*1600).
· Several menu control glitches fixed.
· In some rare cases players may observe FPS stutter. This is now fixed.
· Fixed an issue when the game was unable to locate player’s saves if his Uplay account contained

So some issues where fixed

Nice, I was not aware about 1.03 and finally updated Logitech support. Really nice as I own G27. I stopped messing around with this game soon after release as I was unable to get my wheel working.

Back then I also always had to log in using ubi credentials even thought I'm using Steam copy.

If I had the cash I'd buy it.

Awesome game from what I've played over a friends, specially online.

Well, unfortunately I run SLI and I have a Driving Force GT wheel.

SLI can be turned off easily, I'm not too worried about that. But I wonder how hard it would be getting my wheel to work since it's not officially supported. I saw in another thread where someone got it working in XP. But I'm running Windows 7 and it looks like he had to jump through a lot of hoops to get it working.

Lack of wheel support in a PC racing game is a deal breaker for me. If they can't be bothered adding wheel support to a racing game, then I can't be bothered buying their game. There's really no excuse for it. Especially since it's published by Ubisoft. They have the resources to do it right. Instead, it seems like the major publishers just keep offering less and less.

The lack of post processing and HDR lighting is a real bummer but the game is still highly fun and runs great to boot.

It is. The only downside to it is the ty DRM that Ubisoft keeps using.
