    Except the first Assassin's Creed, all pc versions are linked to a Uplay account. Maybe things have changed since I last bought a Uplay disc version (that was a long time ago, I buy mostly digital games for PC now), but usually the disc comes with just one Uplay activation code, so if your friend has used them then you won't be able to play the games without buying a separate new version. So I would recommend getting just the first game.

    I'd double check with the PC forums, too. They'd be able to tell you for sure if it'd work.

    Yep Uplay, et al, basically nerfed the 2nd hand market for all post ACII games. Sorry
