1.0 out of 5 stars SHAMEFUL: a new low for gaming March 9, 2010
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Gaming has hit an all time low thanks to UBI Soft. If you didn't like draconian DRM schemes, you're going to hate UBI Soft's new policy: you must be connected to their servers 100% of the time to play Assasin's Creed 2. If you don't have internet, or if your internet is out, or if you are on vacation, stationed in Iraq, or want to play at the airport, you are out of luck. No game for you. That in itself is very troubling and reason enough to NOT BUY THIS GAME. However, there are additional reasons that are even more frightening:

1) Setting the precedent for future games

If gamers buy Assasin's Creed despite this huge limitation on game play, it will open the door to many more games like this in the future. That would be awful for the consumer.

2) Turning 'owning' into leasing"

Tying games to some sort of server for activation is bad enough, but making them DEPENDENT on a server is horrible for the consumer. It takes away our rights (to play the game we paid for on our terms) and creates a system whereby you are simply LEASING a game. If at some point UBI Soft decides to take down their servers, you lose your game. They can take away your rights to play the game at any point in the future if they decided to. They have you by the cajones! If you give into this model, expect to never own any digital medium again; the makers of games, producers of music, and distributors of movies would love to see our current model of OWNING a physical copy of your game \ album \ movie replaced with a system where you only own the 'right' to access \ play that medium. It's their wet-dream to turn the current system of ownership on its head so they can re-sell you things endlessly as well as take them away from you at their discretion.

1.0 out of 5 stars No Internet? No game! March 9, 2010
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Though it doesn't say anywhere in the description, you *NEED* an internet connection to play the game. Yes, you need to be connected to an Ubisoft server *at all times* in order to be able to play. No playing out in the backyard, or on the beach, or while waiting for your bus... Without internet, no game!
And so far the Ubisoft servers have done nothing but crash, be unavailable, break off your game-play, lose your saves and so on. Officially, it's all because of attacks on the servers... yeah, right. And irate customers who are trying to vent their frustration on the Ubisoft forums are having their posts deleted.
I'm paying for an *offline* game, not for an online one (I have enough of those). I sent mine back.

1.0 out of 5 stars Overzealous DRM March 9, 2010
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is abusive to consumer rights. You need a continuous connection to Ubisoft's servers while playing. If the connection breaks, the game stops. And Ubisoft is already having trouble keeping their server online.

The pirates cracked this game within 24 hours, so the DRM isn't effective at stopping the pirates. And it's also not effective at allowing paying customers to play, so the DRM fails in every respect. It just ruins the game. If you value your rights as a consumer, don't buy this game.

Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
While the game itself is great, I have no quarrels with it, the developers should be ashamed of themselves. Why would anyone purchase a single player PC game that forces them to be connected to the internet? That's correct. In order to even start the game, you must be connected to the internet, and if the internet fails, even for a second, the game kicks you out and you either have the option to wait for it to reconnect, or you will loose all of your game until your last auto save. Quite annoying. I understand this is to prevent hacking, however this only penalizes the legit player, not the pirated version, which has no DRM anyway. I will no longer ever purchase a Ubisoft title, that's for sure. Stick to the PS3 or Xbox360 version if you really want to play this title, otherwise it's not worth the hassle.

As just about every other review has stated so far, beware when purchasing this game. It's single player only but you can be locked out from playing it if you don't have an internet connection that's 100% up while playing, and as long as UbiSoft's servers are online (which they aren't always).

If you absolutely must play this game, play it on a console. Avoid the PC version. You will be at the mercy of a draconian DRM system that is completely out of your control to play a game that has no online component apart from Ubisoft keeping an eye on you like a criminal.

This is no way to run a business and my pocket will speak for me. AC2 & the new Splinter Cell were two games I was going to purchase from Ubisoft... not going to happen anymore. I rather support developers/publishers that don't treat their user base like thieves.

2.0 out of 5 stars Please don't get this game. March 9, 2010
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Please, don't get this game. Firstly, I am reviewing the PC VERSION and technical issues. The game itself is absolutely amazing and beautiful, so don't worry about that. The problem (for PC users) is the DRM. If you haven't heard of it, you will soon if you're wondering why this game has such low stars.

I don't mind connecting to the internet once to activate my game, albeit annoying. But this is horrid. You have to connect to the internet at ALL TIMES. Logical for multilayer, but for a single player? What was Ubisoft thinking?

I understand the issues of piracy, and I don't blame the company for seeking ways to stop it. However, this is not to way to go. If anything, this makes people want to go pirate even more--for a version that isn't tied up with all of these restrictions, not to mention the odd $10 hike.

Overpriced, infected with fine print, and fun is destroyed by the DRM--Please do not waste your money. I am very sad, because this game is truly a masterpiece, but Ubisoft has fallen to the low like many other companies, and are just wanting to make money--that, and I really think they do this for fun, just to annoy us. It hurts my feelings how Ubisoft just walks all over the toes of loyal PC gamers and treat us like trash.

Just boycott this game, or go buy the 360 or PS3 version.

Next time, Ubisoft, please work with your fans to solve the problem. Thank you.
