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: Just couldn't get into it. The controls were hard for me to figure out. The story seemed alright and in hindsight I wished I'd finished it for the story. Not a open ended game in the least and I really didn't enjoy the game mechanics.
Summary: Alright, first I should say that since I bought the PC version of this game, obviously I use it on the PC. There are other versions meant for Xbox and Playstation so maybe their games are a bit more reliable. But this is my perspective on the pc-version. The story is interesting and it's great to be able to explore at my leisure... ..
Summary: Great games, but the lag of my computer made playing AC II nearly impossible. It is more of a hardware issue with my laptop than the games themselves. Just make sure your PC can push the software.
Summary: be warned in order to play assassins 2 you need to log on to uplay by ubisoft you cannot play this without being online.according to their website you can unlink from uplay but they will render the cd key useless meaning you cannot play it at all.that is why it only got 2 stars
Summary: You have to use Amazon's super slow downloader. Should come with Steam keys for convenience and to keep the games organized. Otherwise there should be a disclaimer that it's not redeemable on Steam before you buy it.
Summary: As a sequel, this game keeps the trappings of the original but jettisons the core. There are planned assassinations as side notes, a bone to fans of the first game, but the plot is moved forward by haphazardly killing for revenge with no investigation on your part. The majority of game play is adventure puzzle solving, treasure hunting, and weapons/armor collection. There is no creed, other than in the title. If you like adventure gaming, go for it.
