I do so love trawling Amazon for good deals, and this is a pretty enticing one.
While Jim might not have enjoyed Assassin's Creed II, I certainly did. I loved all of The Truth puzzles, as they're the sort of thing we almost never see in games, let alone a big-budget, AAA title that's intended to have mass appeal. Not to mention the significantly improved mission variety.
At half the price, I feel confident in recommending that you pick it up. The markdown only applies to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 standard versions of the game. This is just one of Amazon's random -- and likely temporary -- price drops with no idea when it arrived or when your time is up. Choose wisely.

Disclosure-bot: Just in case the editor neglected to mention it, we have zero control when deals start and end. Deals can sometimes be gone within minutes (please don't shoot the messenger). Trying deal links even hours after this article's time stamp may lead to self-punching, so maybe bookmark our video game deals if you're on the hunt. Also, it goes without saying, but some shopping links do directly support the author. If you've spotted any inaccuracy please let us know asap.
