Well, seeing this thread, I believe that is very funny what I will say right now.
I just bought since 2 weeks Assassin's Creed 2 for my laptop. I had some issues at the installation, since I needed my very first Uplay download, but then was everything alright. I went threw 5-6 hours daily of playing this game, and today I just ended my very first Assassin's Creed game, and yes, with Ezio. The only stuffs I still stuck is searching for the old buildings or cities(I have 4 more), but I very loved the game and I am waiting to buy some more. Well, I can say that I will stop myself at Assassin's Creed 3 or even 4, because I am not sure how far my laptop can go. But everything will come in time. This game was just awesome and I was hopping after finishing the game to let me go free in cities, unlike The Witcher 2. And it happened, OMG, it happened. It is also awesome, literally. I thought that I will get bored of it, but damn, I survived till the end by actually loving and enjoying every single minute. This game got me into it and made from me an Assassin fan.
