The major problem in this gorgeous epic is stability. The game crashed more than any other in recent memory and complained about the DVD not being present when it was clearly identified by Windows. While some have had no problems, many others on the official forums have complained about similar issues. A new patch supposedly ameliorates these concerns, but remains the sole caveat in recommending this game. The game is long, challenging, and worth replaying alone and with others, if you can keep it running.
