Assassin's Creed II

Assassin's Creed II
Is the continuation of Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed, which may I add had HUGE popularity, allowing people to sneak around and assassinate! Assassin's Creed 2 has evolved from its predecessor in several ways which I will be explaining. To begin if you have played the original game this game gladly ties up any loose ends you may have! I must admit the keyboard and control scheme is awkward and slow at the beginning, but soon I found out that these keys work together to pull off escapes and combos! At the beginning of this game you wake up as Desmond, and must escape from a jail. After escaping he goes into the past where we first meet Ezio. It takes you through all the steps of his life even his birth : ) . While this game isn't exactly a "stealth" game, it does have quite a few elements that allow you to be sneaky. Such as hiding in big groups of people. Or maybe jumping in a stack of hay to lose those pesky guards! Among all this you will experience an exciting storyline accompanied by good graphics, well done sound, and graceful parkour. This game also goes farther allowing you to get collectibles, and obtain new weapons/armor along the way. The game is quite lengthy lasting around 15 hours without even doing any "extra". Ubisoft took this game to the next level. Increasing every part we liked about the old game and trashing the bad parts! All in all I think if you don't already own this game, it is worth getting! I rate this game 8.5/10

  1. I played the first assassin's creed, I liked the story line but I found the gameplay to be a bit repetitive. I hear great things about this game as well as the newest title in the series. I might just have to get this game a shot!

  8. I think the story line is really weird, especially ACII who in my opinion are just trying to cash in on the success of the Da Vinci Code.

  15. I played the first one and thought it was quite boring at times, do you think I should buy this one?

    ReplyDelete
  16. The first one often had you repeat missions and was lackluster.. This one has style :) and a coherent storyline

    ReplyDelete
  17. i loved the 1st one but the second is in my mind better, it doesn't have repeating missions, and you get two hidden blades

    ReplyDelete

  27. I'm not a fan of stealth games but I thought this one balanced stealth really well with exploration, adventure, and good ole fashioned killing

    ReplyDelete
  28. Fun game, but nothing beats the first one.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Didn't like this game myself, never been a fan of the series.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I thought the first one was really good (despite the horrid flags), will need to pick up the second at some point :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Didn't like the ending so much on the first one, but overall, these series are AMAZING.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Good review. Got me thinking about buying it.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I've only ever watched mates of mine play these, and both the first and second seem pretty awesome, just because of the game play and the concept. But I guess you have to play it yourself to know for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Great game, a bit too simplistic combat and a bit too lengthy for my taste though. Love the setting, its just great.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Never played the sequel, the ending to first was just so sudden and discouraging I kind of forgot about this series. Might give it a rent though.

    ReplyDelete

  44. I haven't played any of the AC games, but they do look like a lot of fun. If I could get my hands on the money to get a decent TV, I'd definitely consider giving the games a shot.
