assassins creed sound mystery

hi all
I've recently loaded assassins creed on my computer, when i play the game i have no dialogue between the characters. I have all the sound effects but no dialogue, i don't know if that's the way the game is meant to be , but if anyone has played the game i would like to hear from you to see if this is normal. Any advice on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Is This A Windows 95 Computer??

In reply to: assassins creed sound mystery

Unfortunately, you've given us no information about your computer and what type of hardware you have installed. It's tough to provide much help without such information. Desktop/laptop? Processor speed? Amount of RAM installed? Age of computer? Turned off your popup blocker if you're using your browser to play the game?

Tried checking the game's website for the answer? Installed any patches that the game requires?

A quick check of the online game site shows a variety of discussions between the characters, but I don't play the game using the installed version.

Hope this helps.

hi all
Thanks Grif for your speedy reply,
i'm running a desktop with an asus m2n sli delux mobo, amd dual core processor at 3.2 gig, 2gig corsair 8500 mem, geforce 8800gts video card and a wd 72 gig raptor.
I've tried the website for any patches but to no avail.
I'll try what you suggested and turn my popup blocker off and see what happens.
I'll keep you posted

Windows 7 2010

In reply to: sound ok

for people having this problem NOW in 2010 with assassins creed 2 my personal fix on WINDOWS 7 haven't tried on any other OS, was starting a new game, once main char gets off the animus and you can run to the woman and hear footsteps, reload your game and the sound effects should be back. I dunno if it helps but: I deleted the new fresh game save I had just made before loading my old one.
