Great game, a few problems,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Assassins Creed II (PC CD) (DVD-ROM)
The game is a great game, no doubt about that.
But only buy if you are patient. There are a few bugs that are fixable but annoying.
Installation is an absolute pain! You need to create a UPlay account in order for the game to sync to the internet. Even though you don't need the disk the online storage doesn't work to your advantage. Sometimes it doesn't save properly and you end up starting earlier than you're meant to be, but that can be fixed with a restart of the game.
I would expect a great game by a renowned company would have an easier (and quicker) installation.
But the game is great! I love running around on the rooftops of Italy which is a great setting.
Hope This Helps
EDIT: Not to forget the constant annoyance of saving. I may have mentioned the saving earlier, but recently, constantly every time it starts up, I start on the second mission, and so the only thing that seems to fix it is to before when you click 'enter to begin' you use alt+tab and open 2 internet explorer tabs to continue where I left off! Even though the game is worth it, I worry Ubisoft is loosing their grip on reliability...
