Summary: Got this set to go with the others in the series and you'll be hard pressed to find a better price. Encore ships fast too. I just activated it on Uplay and it auto updated and didn't have to sweat the 5gb missing file that others have had to deal with using the disc only method. One thing though, it would've been easier to just get the key codes rather than dealing with USPS, shipping handling etc.
Summary: I finally got around to buying and playing the Assassin's Creed starter set but after playing through the most boringly designed game in years I hit the brick wall that is a nearly dead Assassin's Creed II disk. I couldn't even start the autorun program in order to install it and as such am highly disappointed. I have purchased Encore products in the past but this is the first time where I have gotten utterly angry at the arrival of a bad disk.
Summary: AC1 installed and played just fine, love the game. AC2 refused to install, said I have the wrong version of windows. Win7 64bit. I asked customer service what the deal was and they told me to register online and download the game with their Uplay client. My internet bandwidth won't allow a 6+Gig download without multiple errors. Why can't they just supply a disk that works?
Summary: Assassin's Creed I worked perfectly and I enjoyed the game very much. However, when I went to install Assassin's Creed II, things went down hill. An error message popped up saying that it wouldn't run on the windows version I was running. I read the system requirements on the back of the case and my desktop and laptop exceeded them, but worked on neither. As of now, I'm trying to contact Encore and their website is not helpful and I can't find a phone number to call.
Summary: well it came on great time only 3 days from the time i purchased it, and its in great condition, i have only tryed 1 of the 2 discs so far but i'm sure the second one works good too.... i give a 5 stars, and am very happy.
Summary: The title of this review says it all. Neither disc worked in any of the 3 computers we have in the house. They all said they were corrupted discs. Sad because it is an awesome price for two of the games. Packaging is not even a case but a paper envelope that holds both discs which came with the program sides together. Although they werent scratched I have a feeling that is also a reason they didnt work.
Summary: I bought this in mid-Feb and at the time, it was a great deal. 9.99 for two games that are usually priced at 9.99 each and both are greatest hits with amazing story lines and great qualities. Both have parkour style movement which works GREAT! I also had a brain injury, so the nerves in my left arm kill the sensation there and I use an xbox 360 controller with it.
