Everything about Universe is awful. Slower than slow loading, key features missing, almost impossible to play with friends. I can't go from PlayCatan games taking <30 mins. to this. I haven't even been able to finish a game. Even if every person playing was moving as fast as they could, it would still take over an hour in the best possible scenario. Honestly, does anyone care about mediocre PS2 graphics in exchange for all of the drawbacks? Is anyone even playing this?
PLEASE Klaus Teuber, quit monkeying around and get PlayCatan back up already. I think it would be easier to start from scratch than to make Universe playable.
