The first thing that booted up when I popped in the 'Ezio Trilogy' disc.....was 'Assassin's Creed: Revelations' (the third game in the trilogy). There's no in-game menu, no automatic way to switch to playing the other two games. I had to quit 'Revelations' (after it's mandatory 4+GB install) and after selecting AC2 and Brotherhood from the dashboard menu the games install....I mean COMPLETELY install to your HD. By the time I had AC2, Brotherhood and Revelations ready to play I had taken up 17 GB on my hard drive. Even stranger you're still required to have the disc in your system to be able to play each game (unless you want to play Revelations you'd probably want your auto-run turned off). To be fair it DOES say what's required on the back of the box and you can always just install AC2 OR Brotherhood by themselves (each takes up about 6-7 GB's) but those hoping to have all three games play off one disc will find these features a nuisance.
I will say 'AC2' and 'AC:Brotherhood' play beautifully on the PS3 without any of the bugs I remembered from their initial launches (UBISOFT did a great job cleaning things up). Graphics are smooth as ever and being able to climb buildings around renaissance-era Italy and Ottoman-ruled Turkey is still incredibly fun. Story-wise I'll never warm to Desmond's present-day narrative but getting involved in Ezio's quest for revenge and discovery is just as compelling as I remembered.Read more ›
This is a GREAT bundle for those who are either new PS3 owners (new PS3's have a lot of HDD space) or PS3 owners new to the Assassin's creed series. All of my friends who played the entire series told me I didn't need to play the first one, but to read up on the story online instead.
Yes, it takes 17GB of space to install ACII and AC:B on the PS3, and yes you need the disk to play any of the 3 games at all times. In no way are either of these things good reasons not to buy this bundle. There are so many resources showing how to add hard drive space, so that shouldn't be too much of a problem.
The day I bought this for $30, ACII was $15, AC:B was $18, and AC:R was $25. Even at $40, this trilogy is still a good deal. If you would rather pay more to have 3 disks and use less HDD space - more power to you!
This trilogy only comes with the ACII DLC, but for newcomers to the series, I would recommend reading reviews on DLC for the other 2 games before buying any of it, as many see the added content as not being worth the additional money.
As far as the 3 games included, refer to each individual game's product page for full review there.
AC2 and Brotherhood do not play direct from the disc and must be installed on your PS3 as if you just downloaded a game from the PSN store so make sure you have 17.6 gb's of space in your HD and expect even longer install times, maybe 20 - 40 minutes before your 1st play for either game.
Also, you'll still need the disc to play AC2 and Brotherhood even after you install either game on your HD. A good workaround to save space is to install AC2, play it, delete AC2, then install and play ACB.
This trilogy only includes all DLC for only AC2, sequences 12 and 13 which were skipped from the original release. There is also no copy of AC1 bundled with Revelations for those wondering.
For the uninitiated looking to get into the full story, this is a great package and worth the money. Since all AC2 single player DLC is included, you'll only need to buy Brotherhood's 'Da Vinci Disappearance' DLC and download Corpenicus DLC for free from the PSN store and you'll be straight.
Revelations single player DLC, The Lost Archive, sucks and is not worth the money although it has somewhat important information regarding one of the main characters. You'll better off looking up info on 'The Lost Archive' and save yourself a few bucks.
If Ubi patches this nonsense so you can at least play all games direct from the disc, this would be a solid investment for only $40. With the all the hype and good reviews surrounding the recent release of AC3, AC2 still remains the best in series.
Do note, though, that the version of AC2 on this disc is unique (and maybe the other two are, also, but I can't speak to that). This probably won't be an issue for most people, but it created a problem for me. The version of AC2 included on this disc has both the two story DLCs baked into it. I already owned a used copy of AC2, but not its DLC nor the other two games on this disc. I figured that this would be cheaper than buying AC:B and AC:R anyway, so combined with the AC2 DLC, it would be a great deal. Unfortunately, the version of AC2 on this disc is incompatible with saves from the regular, standalone version of AC2. So if, like me, you already own AC2 and want to play the DLCs that come with this, you're out of luck unless you want to beat the game all over again. (I contacted Ubisoft and they told me, "Unfortunately Assassins Creed II and the Ezio Trilogy are coded differently and the save datas [sic] cannot be ready [sic] by one another.")
Also note that if you ever had to replace this, I have a bad feeling that, if you couldn't get this special Ezio Trilogy disc back, you'd never be able to use your existing saves. So be warned.
