Summary: Having read good reviews, with high hopes I was looking for a game that would replace WoW I had been playing for years. But this one is no match even for the Secret of Monkey Island. I started playing, then kept losing interest, until I turned it off after 2 hours and will not return. The plot is remotely involving, dialogues dull, saves too infrequent. Writing this review was more fun than playing this game.
Summary: Disappointing. I do not know whether it is because I bought the Mac version, but if this game is meant to entertain it is a complete failure. Both my son (9 years old) and me (+40) couldn't be bothered. I love historical games but books are much more fascinating than this game. The thrill apparently is you get to kill others after some time travelling. But that's about it. Boring.
Summary: YOU NEED AN INTERNET CONNECTION TO PLAY. EVERY TIME YOU WANT TO PLAY. Just the above should be enough for everyone to boycott Ubisoft and any game that uses this pig-headed method of copy protection, which DOES NOT WORK to protect anything. The Mac version was available online cracked within a few weeks of its release. You can avoid the internet connection requirement by using a little program called AC 2 Cracked Launcher (Mac), to be found on the internet.
Summary: Firstly let me start by saying that there's been a lot of complaining about this Mac title so I was a little hesitant about taking the plunge. Problem? Well for some its the DRM that makes to be attached to the internet for as long as you play. What this actually means is very simply you create an account with ubisoft who then 'lock' your account with the right to play the game from any computer (once you log in that is).
Summary: Ahh I love this game so much, HOWEVER, I have not yet had the opportunity to play it! I can tell you it's an excellent game because I had it on my PC and I had completed it and done everything. Yet still, I cannot play on my Macbook Pro. The installation process went fine, and the actual game itself is genuine. The one problem is with Ubisoft and their DRM [need of an internet connection at all times].
