Assassin's Creed: Week One Point Two

[SPOILERS]

It just wouldn't be a mediocre gaming event without a glitch/bug at the end of it.

So. I've killed 8 of the 9 people I'm supposed to kill. I get to Arsuf... or the beginning of it anyway. And in no time I'm having all kinds of issues with the screen. First the archers ignore me. Woohoo. That's to my advantage. Then the screen says "Cannot Access this Memory" despite the fact that I'm on the only road you can travel in the game and there's no where else to go.

So. I walk back, fall through a PIXEL crack and die after 20 seconds of freefall.

I spawn with the DUAL ASSASSIN glitch that everyone is talking about. I got this in no time and immediately started fighting myself. After dying. I respawned four more times as a double, before finally giving up.

I turned it off. And an hour later came back to it.

I read online about similar problems and I tried removing the second controller. I was able to walk through the Blocked Memory, but there were still TWO ASSASSINS. However, this is the best part, when I was ambushed by the 20 or so bad guys, the second assassin helped me out. We died anyway, because the screen was jumpy (with two assassins) and I didn't know which one I was controlling, but it was still hilarious.

So.

Until there issue a patch, I don't think I'll be finishing this game.
