Ezio's got a pair of concrete shoes with your name on them

Summary:

Assassin's Creed, while not exactly a good game by any sense of the word, was pretty *bleep*ing successful. It sold plenty of copies and managed to keep Ubisoft afloat (long story short, they were about to be bought by EA, but then came Assassin's Creed to give Ubisoft a financial backbone). Add in the mid game plot twist-esque ending, and Ubisoft would be pretty *bleep*ing stupid to not make a sequel, and you know what? Assassin's Creed 2 is a huuuuuge improvement! While some would disagree due to not liking the story as much or not liking Ezio period, you have to admit, the gameplay is a ...

Assassin's sandbox

Summary:

While the first Assassin's Creed game had some good ideas, it was plagued by underwhelming execution and extremely formulaic gameplay. But honestly, I'm glad that it was a hit, because I would love to see the idea of being a guy reliving the lives of his ancestors who happened to be assassins expanded, and I would also love to see the actual assassin thing expanded. Meet Assassin's Creed 2, which continues the story from where the first game left off, refined what the first game did, and pretty much just kicks your ass. Whether the improvements seem small or big, one thing is for certain – ...

An Excellent Game, Better than the Original

The good:

  • New Weapons.
  • New Armor/Clothes and a choice of dying your clothes.
  • Currency introduced into the game.
  • One of the best story-lines I have ever seen in a game.
  • Fixed a lot of issues in the game, including climbing, running, combat system, and assassinations.
  • Many ways to kill your enemy.
  • New side-quests.

The bad:

  • Although this game is not nearly as repetitive as the first Assassin's Creed, the game can become boring at times.
  • A little unrealistic, for example in the game you can slit someones throat with a baton.
  • Armor can degrade a little too quickly.
  • Thieves, prostitutes, ect. aren't really needed
  • Some characters look different

Summary:

Assassin's Creed 2 was the highly anticipated sequel to the original Assassin's Creed. Ubisoft promised to fix the repetitiveness of the first game and add new ways to kill your target. The game is better than Assassin's Creed in almost every way, but it is not without faults. The repetitiveness of the game is still there (although significantly less than the first game) and some characters like Lucy look different or distorted compared to the first. Now for the full review.

Story:
The game takes place in 2012, where a man named Desmond Miles is kidnapped by a fictional company named Abstergo...

Assassin's Creed II

The good:

Great Story
Lots of gameplay time
Brings all the great stuff back from the first Assassin's Creed
Drops the reptitiveness

The bad:

Couple of audio problems

Summary:

I'm just going to get right to it. Assassin's Creed II is nothing but awesome. Fans of the first game will love this one. It brings everything you love about the original game back plus more, but leaves all the bad/boring stuff behind.

The first playthrough has alot of playtime. It took me around 30+ hours. It may be more or less for you, but definitely won't be a short game. The story is great. ACII drops the whole detective thing (which wasn't neccessarily bad) and picks up an actual story, which the gameplay/missions are based off, so because of the story, the detective work is actually ...

Much Better this time around.

The good:

Better Storyline
More stuff to do, tons of side quests
More instant kill options.
Not as repetitive.
More challenging puzzles.
Charecter art is amazing.

The bad:

Few parts were glitchy for me

Summary:

This game blew my mind away! You start off as just a nobel chasing girls and doing what ever you want and then you turn into this godly assassin who has moves that made Altiar (main character in AC1) look like a pansy. The storyline is more detailed with many bridges that link AC1 to AC2, because at first when I found out that we are no longer following Altiar and instead playing Etsio I worried about how the two were related. That's just it, they are related as this time you dive into another realative of Dezmond's Ancestry.

In AC1 it was a pain to bring down a lot of your targets and gu...
