Was your list a snowboarding game or a two year old console port? I'm not sure where they got the idea that sim players would be interested in a snowboarding game, or that people interesting in brand new games would want a two year old game. Chances are if we really wanted those games we'd either have bought them when they came out, or bought them now that they are for sale for $6 (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110416072016&rvr_id=&crlp=1_263772_263802&UA=%3F*F%3F&GUID=d9e3fc5d1240a0268106c0c6ffe78f66&mt_id=1069&prodrefid=58686810&itemid=110416072016&ff4=263772_263802).

I'd asked several times when this mail was coming, since I couldn't play three weekends in a row, <STRIKE>but if this is Ubisoft's idea of compensation then I'm with Gatt and don't want it thank you.</STRIKE> http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Actually, in light of the fact that Assassin's Creed gamers were offered THREE MILITARY TITLES one of which is even WWII related while we were shoved a f... snowboarding game, I will take my free copy of EndWar thank you very much...

btw, probably shouldn't have posted your download code there... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

At the end of the day it is a nice (if somewhat futile) gesture from UBI. Yes they have ****ed up big time with this game and the whole DRM issue but at least they have tried to offer some sort of consolation for the issues and it shows that they are aware of the problems (with DRM at least).I have the game, i may not be playing it as i am waiting to see if/when they patch but it's still installed, and it will remain so until i am convinced UBI couldn't give a **** about fixing it. The game has gorgeous graphics and a lot of the code for the missing stuff is there (Depth under keel etc), i.e the game has a lot of potential. Unfortunately, potential does not a good game make but at least this gesture is a step in the right direction. Testicles..... that is all!

EDIT: it is hilarious though that the promo code they gave doesn't work!!!

Ok...so they offered two free games that are not likely to appease the masses of disgruntled SH5 buyers, but at least it shows some sign of concern regarding Ubi's woeful rollout of this game.

Despite very little formal Ubisoft feedback, this does at least show they care somewhat about their product and customers. That can only bode well for their intention to fix the bugs we all loath?

Considering that Assassin's Creed players were offered twice as many games as Silent Hunter 5 players and of those 3 out of 4 were military games, one even being WWII, I think it shows that Ubisoft is utterly clueless and doesn't care at all about their customers nor their products.

Well, at least the links are working now.

I guess they sent out the emails, before they had configured the DL servers.

I would've liked the choice of one of the ACII give-away games though....is the SH5 choice limited because ACII is twice as expensive as SH5?

The hell it is, my SH5 was $60... Our choice is limited because Ubisoft is dumb. Or perhaps snowboarding game fans is who they thought they were making this game for. That would explain a lot...

Well ubi it was a nice offer BUT i don't think my apinone of you will change by offering me a game you know I will never play.

Just to show you how much i like your offer i was one of the many people that posted on subsim and CNET on the reviews saying how BAD this service was and how i will NEVER EVER buy any game from this company again.

If a company offers a game that is INTERNET ONLY to be able to play that company needs to have some sort of backup, when there is NO INTERNET as there server is down. a lot of people do not have 24/7 internet and some of us like to take our laptops with us on that 4 Hr trip (so i like to relax and play SH4) till they make internet on flight trains & ships 24/7 and free this is going to limit sales of this sort of games.

http://www.cnet.com/1770-5_1-0...nt+Hunter+5&tag=srch (http://www.cnet.com/1770-5_1-0.html?query=Silent+Hunter+5&tag=srch)
that's why SH5 has a user rating of 1 star, it has the same bugs that came out with SH3 & 4 but thanks to some VERY GOOD gamers fixed UBI'S Bad programming and now work and play very well.

I think that they need to take a close look at WHY they are paying some of there employees ?when there are a loot of sim players that fix there mistakes for free???

if there is any 1 out there that want the code for that crap that ubcrap offered us sim players have my one its ?????????

I woke up the wife laughing over this thread. To pay back time for a single player game you can't play because the servers are down, you get a snowboarding game which you can't download because the servers are down.

And you guys with the pics are hilarious. I'm still sad I couldn't buy this game because of the DRM, but seeing this stuff cheers me right up, thanks.
