Summary: I often get older games but this was just a waste of money. The game is built around view points with nifty (not really that good) views of the area. Game play feels like stuff in your way to the next view and the controls are not good.
Game seems fun, but U-play won't let Me play. Oh, the irony.

Summary: First, you should know I bought this on Steam and I'm using Apple OS X. The game is quite fun, but UPlay has ruined this game for me. I click "PLAY" on steam. For some reason the game does not open, but a Uplay popup window opens. Fine. I click PLAY in the Uplay window, but the game does not start. I don't know how I got the game to start the first time. I had to start and quit and restart and quit many times.
Summary: supposedly a great game.............will not work with mouse on a pc...............needs a much fancier control board.........no manual included.......such as how to save games,.............sorry i ordered 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.
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: 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: The graphics of this game on a newer computer are great. I am running it on a i5 processor with 8GB of RAM. Windows 7. It runs okay, but you have to get to the screen that says demoshield is not working prior to the game opening or it will run in a window. (rendering it virtually unplayable) In the course of playing I had to start re-start it many times when things didn't boot in the right order. The game is buggy at times, but not terrible.
Summary: I loved the AC1 - it was coolest action game of the year - fast. But I am so disappointed with this version. FIRST OF ALL - IT IS NOT REALLY AN ACTION GAME - IT IS MORE LIKE A 3RD PERSON PUZZLE GAME, WHERE TIMED PUZZLES WILL MAKE YOU SICK AND FRUSTRATED IN NO TIME ONCE YOU GET TO THEM. 2.) DRM obviously gave me and my friend(game owner) more frustration. 3.
