At $16 bucks its a bargain.
I bought it almost 1 year after release due to the rushed unfinished state it came out in and the DRM issue.
I broke down when I saw how much the Subsim
community put into getting the game playable and the inevitable ubi patches. It would be nice if software could be released that worked as advertised on day one.
The Sim rocks today, mostly due to some stellar efforts by the community. I don't even notice the Uplay thing and now you can play offline.
