A fantastic game, going free as part of Ubisoft's 30 year anniversary.

For anyone who hasn't played, I'd implore you to give it a go. It's a fantastic game.

Also timed well as it appears they will be announcing a sequel in the near future.

It's a top top game

Fantastic game, have had it for years on steam but didn't get along with it not having native controller options. played it a few months ago on PS3 and thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait for the sequel

Fantastic offer. Such a wonderful game with a distinct art style.

Great choice!

Have this on OX but always great to have it on PC too.

is uplay something you have to pay for? anything dodgy about it?

No - it's just Ubisoft's PC digital distribution platform, performing a similar function to Steam, or EA's Origin.

Some find it overly intrusive in certain ways, or just don't like it because it's not Steam - but it's not really anything all that bad.

There's a few games I consider to be all-time classics that I feel that about.

Goldeneye is the primary culprit. Basically unplayable now, but was a revelation in its day.

Although it is only multiplayer, this is a group of fans great effort to bring things a little closer to the present...

I did buy this game for PS3 but it was pretty much unplayable due to the inability to invert-y without also doing so for the x-axis.

Having just purchased a Steam controller I'm pretty sure I can make it work well with that so am looking forward to trying it out again.

Sadly it won't be any time soon. The creator said BGAE 2 is now in "pre-production" which means it's at least 3 years away!

Brilliant game

The Xbox 360 remake looks so good yet we'll never play it.

This. My only nitpick with Steam, Uplay and Origin is that this feels like owning three consoles on a single platform. I.e., demanding to use a different service for games instead of a single one.

But whatever, the games are free so can't really be complaining.

This is one of my favorite games. Played it on the gamecube back in the day.

​Without multiple platforms, you would have a monopoly.

So, for some strange reason this website won't let me post a reminder for this as it's already been posted. Now as it goes FREE today I hope everyone remembers this week old post then.

Yeah, they deleted it when I posted it this morning as well. I don't know about other people, but I've slept since this got put up. And it's no reminder for today! It was wrong that this was allowed in the first place!

or subscribe to the deal? it popped up in my alerts and I picked it up this morning
