4.5 Excellent game (minus the DRM) Itchac | 13/04/2010 | See all Itchac's reviews (1) This is truly an excellent game. The environments are beautifully crafted and inspiring; the storyline is clever and involving; and game play is varied and dynamic (which is a definite improvement from the first Assassin's Creed). It has all the ingredients that make a game which is simply brilliant. If you enjoyed the first Assassin's Creed, I have no doubts that you will enjoy this game too.The only thing I can fault with the game, which I'm sure is giving many other players of the PC game a headache, is the DRM (and this is the only reason why I have given the game four stars instead of five). If you don't have a reliable internet connection, which in Britain is not uncommon, the game can be difficult or maybe even impossible to play. Fortunately there is now a way around the DRM which can remove the restriction of requiring a permanant internet connection to play the game (NOT available from Ubisoft - they've yet to develop any common sense and realise that DRM does nothing more than serve as a nuisance to legitimate customers such as myself). If you can find the way around it, then I would certainly reccomend you buy the PC version of the game. Otherwise, I'd suggest getting it for the PS3 or 360.
