Just beat the game...wow. Just gotta finish collecting glyphs and that's it. I pretty much got everything else. What a great game and what a crazy story. Loved it. There will definitely be a 3rd one.

not the people who have got around it, i really hate DRM just for the fact if i paid for i i should not have to go through it

I have this for the ps3 but never played it much. A guy on CL is selling it for 25,. Is the pc experience much better than the consoles?

Okay wow, this game is about 10x better than the original. I couldn't get more than 2hrs into the first one before I got bored. AC2 is on a completely different level. This game is absolutely fantastic and I am about 7 hours in so far. Great story, graphics, presentation... it really is a phenomenal game. Every single aspect of the game has been improved upon the original. I am going to milk this playthrough as long as possible... which sounds like it will be easy to do considering all these damn feathers you can find lol.

Ive been pretty busy but I hop into this every other day or so. Its pretty entertaining. I don't really like the constant glitches and effects when there isn't a strong connection to the current time line. ie the game does alot to make me aware that I am not reall in the past, yet since I first sat in the chair I have not been let out of the dream sequences nore is there any reason to, thus no connection to the future either.

Publishers have been bemoaning that 90% of their sales have been lost to piracy. While I pretty much agree that 9 out of 10 PC players are pirates, it's important to remember that not every download is a lost sale. The skulls of
John Riccitiello and Bobby Kotick (heads of EA and Activision) are particularly well-armored against this concept. But here we have a well-reviewed, high-profile, AAA title, with incredibly dense coverage that was ostensibly impossible to pirate for six entire weeks. (Which is when the bulk of sales take place.) If every download was a lost sale, then a piracy-proof game should have somewhere in the ballpark of ten times the usual sales. Assassins Creed 2 should be burning up the PC sales charts, dwarfing the sales numbers for its predecessor. Looking around at the sales charts on VGChartz, it would appear that this is not the case.

So I give Ubisoft credit: They have come up with a system that can eventually work. But it's still a waste of money, abusive to legitimate customers, and criminally short-sighted. It's a dumb idea, but they're doing a great job at it.

If you have 360 control pad use it. Much better. You'll get used to it. Hope you enjoy. 2 and Brotherhood are some of my fav games. Much better than 1.
