AC: Recollections feedback from users

I've been following the Recollection forums on Ubisoft and Touch Arcade and there have been a strong post against the game, post 334 by Spatzi. People sitting on the fence about getting into this game can read it for his views on the game. However, be sure to check out the replies to his post in the same thread before coming to any conclusion. In particular, these 2 posters provide a good counter-argument in this post.

In my opinion, this is still a virtual game no matter how you look at it and you are not going to get any tangible product out of it. (Unless Ubisoft decides to print the whole set to reward users with the complete set as a gift, like what Wizards of the Coast did for Magic Online) I'm spending about the price of what I would have spend on 2 Yugioh structure decks and I am having fun from the experience of constructing decks, devising strategies and collecting virtual cards. In reality, people like to comment that cards are really just cardboards anyway too, right? There are many people spending money on virtual goods, from World of Warcraft to Farmville. It all boils down to how much you want to spend and the most important question of all that you need to ask yourself: are you having fun?
