Really? It's rather simple, that's why it's so fun. Then again, Steam probably sabotaged your version, which is impressive as I'm guessing you played it before Steam released.

If you practise you'll get better Velvet. Otherwise stick to the one button mashers. Like the double click test box in Mouse Properties.

Is Steam going to come up in every freaking conversation I have on here now? Really?

So how does it compare to the last one? I thought it was pretty epic but collecting the lights thing was kinda lame and how about some screen shots.

Well THAT came out of nowhere. This game is awesome!

It's basically Sands of Time with ten times better graphics and smoother combat. The visuals are stunning, it is the Assassin's Creed engine but it runs at a smooth 60fps on my rig no matter what on max settings... textures are great, mouse and keyboard controls are great. Platforming feels real, like you are doing it, rather than the auto-pilot feel of the last game. Combat is fast-paced with no blocking, you have to dodge enemies and constantly attack. You get life from smashing boxes and killing enemies, not from water.

If you liked Sands of Time at ALL this is a MUST purchase I would say. I feel like I stole something getting this for $25, it's epic and I am so surprised... I was going to cancel my order, but I am glad I forgot.

Some pics:

That's because it really uses multi-cores instead of relying on raw power (this is the case in AC2). Check the multicore usage under Task Manager

Thanks for the screenshots. It does look pretty great and it sounds pretty great too. Iím going to have to pick it up for sure. I've been reading and checking out the vids, sounds like they are pretty proud of being able to have up to 50 some characters on the screen.

Yeah, it's cool at first with the battle scenes, then later on it means fighting like 40 skeletons and such at once! The combat is really fun in this one, in Sands of Time I suffered through the combat to get to more platforming but in this one I enjoy both.

A couple more notes:

1) Amazing opening cinematic... I miss cinematics.

2) It fills a 16:10 screen, unlike many Ubisoft games.
