"Assassin's Creed 2" is an action-adventure game, released by Ubisoft for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC and Mac. The PC and Mac formats require some or all of the game data to be installed to the hard drive before playing. Once you have completed the game, you may wish to free up some of that disk space by removing the unused data from the hard drive. Depending on the platform, the method for doing this varies slightly.
PC & Macintosh Installs
Quit the game and make sure it is not still running. In Windows this can be checked by pressing ctrl, alt, delete, and clicking "Task Manager." On a Macintosh machine, this is accomplished by pressing command and escape to bring up the "Force Quit" dialog.
Navigate to the install folder for "Assassin's Creed 2" using either Windows Explorer or Finder. On a Windows machine, the surrounding folder can be found in the "C:\Program files\Ubisoft\Assassin's Creed" directory. On a Mac, the "Ubisoft" folder can be found in the applications directory on the home drive.
Locate the "Uninstall.exe" file if using a Windows machine. It will be in the main "Assassin's Creed 2" folder. Double click it and allow the progress bar to complete. When finished, reboot the machine to ensure that all the background processes have been removed. On the Mac version, simply drag the "Assassin's Creed 2" folder to the trash can.
If you insert the "Assassin's Creed 2" DVD, there is a shortcut to the uninstaller on the splash screen that will appear. Click "Uninstall" and all game components will be removed.
