I may have to give up on Assassin’s Creed 2.

I’m facing the endpoint of one of the tombs.  I know the answer (lots of jumpy-flippy stuff); but I just don’t have the reflexes to execute the answer within the freaking time limit.  There’s no way to adjust the difficulty level, there’s no way to abort the mission, there’s no way to revert to a previous save and simply go do something else, and there’s no freaking cheat code to let me stop having to do a part of a game that I don’t, you know, enjoy.  After a couple of days I just gave up and fired up Mass Effect.  I’ve only finished that game once; I can still get enjoyment out of it.

I think that Assassin’s Creed 2 is the first Ubisoft game that I’ve ever played – and if they’re all like this in terms of customizing game play then it’s probably going to be the last one, too.

    I haven’t gotten very far in AC: Brotherhood, but I think they addressed that some in this one. At least, I had a time limit and when I didn’t make it the result was “incomplete synchronization”, but the game kept going.

    I know what tomb you are talking about and it took me a couple of hours to clear it the first time. They key is to not try to go too fast and make sure you hit all of the jumps.

    Anyway, if you don’t want to try and finish the tomb you can bring up the menu system which is the start button and hit the quit. It will ask you if you want to leave the current mission.

    I agree with what Elendil said about taking your time. I also found that just giving it a rest made it easier to complete the more difficult tombs. But I was on the xbox, so I don’t have the same frame of reference.

    So just plug in the 360 controller you should have, and hit the start button there…
