I dont sell my games I bought. And I only spend 25€ for this game. There are so many ways to get a game by a decent price. And yes if a connection is lost once, it is 1 to many, I agree with that. But remember that this is only the first game with this new protection.

And also this is the first step to what the future brings us.
In like 5 to 10 years, you can only play a game from remote servers by using a remote desktop feature, which offcourse also needs a constant connection.

This also means you dont need any fancy hardware, trainers for games aren't possible anymore, piracy put in the ground and the world becomes at peace.

If left unchecked ubisoft would strive for total control, you would have paid 49 dollar and own nothing, in order to access those remote server you would have to sign a 2 year contract and pay 5.99 per monthly charge to play the game you paid for on their server. If you cancel they would charge you a 400 dollar penalty for early termination and you forfit all rights to the game. Protest by then would be too late, every game developer would use the same DRM.

You pay 49 as down payment for playing the game, ubisoft own the right and lease the game for 5.99 a month with contract of 2 years and termination fee of 400.

They would get slapped heavily if they chose that route, for one simple fact games mostly wont be MMO's.

So no they wouldn't do that.

But onto topic at hand, the game is very good, its marred by the fact the Russian DoS bots are ruining the fun of legit players. No matter how much the warez community whines about it, the fault is not Ubisoft's they are protecting their product with a good protection that works when the bots are not bombarding the servers. It will never make Ubisoft from removing the DRM. So it is all a waste of time.

I have never played Assassin´s Creed before so Assassin´s Creed 2 is my first and I have to say I'm impressed. The keys were hard to get used to at first but not hard learning. The constant internet thing was annoying but I'm used to WoW and it's constant internet connection (though it is quite different from this). Doesn't hamper my enjoyment though.

Overall not bad at all. I'm surprised that my card can handle it quite well on a XPS. thought it was gonna give me what BF: BC2 gave me...terrible fps etc but nope.

Assassin's Creed 2 was very good, alittle difficult and uneasy, but still good. If you have average internet connection speeds, then you should be able to play the game without any difficulty; the DRM has not caused me any trouble, but I have yet to try and play with capped internet (Australian.......64kb/64kb). The creators have expanded and added to the initial story line set forth form Assassin's Creed, with Altair's descendant taking up the mantle of assassins against the tempar order. Given that I bought the game for the two hidden blades and the wheel lock pistol, i thought the gameplay would be centred around those two elements as the trailer was hyped up by those two parts. Unfortunately, if you shoot an arche, the other guards dont do a thing, regardless of the big BANG the gun produces, which is good in some part of the game, but higly unrealistic in a very realistic game.
I thought the game was very good and the addition of side mission was a good step in the game's future, however, the side mission still seem to be somewhat restrictive, to me. All in all, a very good game, not quite a masterpiece but getting there.

I found Assassins Creed 2 a good game. The controversy over DRM was initially perpetrated by the pirating community in order to convince paying customers not to pay. It worked. Ubisoft has taken a hit as a result of this.

If they hadn't restored the operation of their servers to counter the latest Dos attacks, they'd probably be facing an even greater loss in revenue by now for selling a defective product, that were returned to vendors.

All in all, I'm pleased with their response to the attacks.

Unfortunately for them, the only thing they've done in creating the DRM is make it a little more challenging for hackers to get the content. Once you play through the game once, the content is readily available to be distributed. All a hacker has to do is cache that content as it comes in and include it with their illegal copies.

I don't agree with piracy as a practice, but believe the model for dealing with piracy isn't in the code. It's in the content.

Make it not worth downloading.
