There was some rant about difficulty here earlier and I just wanted to comment that I think the "difficulty meter" in both of the Assassin's Creed games is actually the ability to turn the HUD elements off.

Ever tried to play with no HUD at all? It's basically impossible. It was a little easier in AC1 but in AC2 there's just so much information that not having HUD is extremely difficult.

Once I had beaten AC1 I turned everything off on the HUD except for the weapon select icons and started trying to replay missions. It makes the game more immersive for one thing, you can really appreciate the views. But it is very challenging.

Did the same thing with AC. I was pretty impressed at how different(awesome) it looked.
