Default Assassins Creed II

So i ended up getting the game a few days ago, and now ive beaten it. Ive gotta say its A LOT better than the original. Its the same basic game, but theres much more variety, and it doesnt seem nearly as repetitive. The villa, upgrades, and money system are a big part of that as they give you something to do on the side between missions.

The BIGGEST thing i liked about this game was the effort they put in to it. They reconstructed each city as accurately as possible for the time period, and even have history on numerous buildings and people that are accurate as well. I dont want to give anything away but the story line is better this time around, and i cant wait for the final part of the trilogy.

just started it on the xbox today. Never finished the first one, they forgot to put a game in the tech demo that was AC1. This is good news.

Great! I really enjoyed the original so I hope to enjoy the sequel even more.

I was looking forward to this game but for some reason they delayed the PC version 3 months and really annoyed me. PC gaming is only shrinking because the people making the games choose to let it, not piracy or poor sales.

What I do not understand is why they dont focus on PC development and then port it to consoles. The PC is harder to develope for so allot more time for it and porting from PC to console must have better results.

Played for 4 hours and am giving up. Better story than the last for sure but the same old crap that pissed me off last time. More frustrating than fun.

Yeah lol i got frustrated a few times as well, especially on the ones where you cant be detected. Even silenty assassinating archers gets you discovered. I had to stop playing for a bit a few times so i didnt get too pissed off. The story line is worth the play through though
