  • Conclusion: To be fair though, Assassins Creed II: Discovery is a polished title, with full voice acting and fantastic graphics throughout, befitting of a premier franchise. If its main strength is acknowledging its weaknesses and discarding them, it can yet also be said it is still guilty for instead becoming one-dimensional in not trying to bring something else instead to the table.

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: Assassin's Creed: Altair's Chronicles on DS was the feeble little brother to Assassin's Creed's good looking next-gen bully, and the little brother promptly found itself the victim of a massive wedgie in the middle of the schoolyard. Still sulking, and wearing tighter trousers, Assassin's Creed II: Discovery has learnt its lesson. It's pinched the plot from its bigger brother, but that's about it.

  • Excerpt: Alors qu'Ezio répand actuellement des hectolitres de sang sur tous les écrans HD de la planète, sa version miniature s'efforce elle aussi de nous faire adopter le credo des assassins. Episode annexe, au même titre que le premier Assassin's Creed à être sorti sur DS, Discovery nous entraîne en Espagne, puis dans le Nouveau Monde, afin de déjouer un nouveau complot des templiers.

Assassins Creed 2: Discovery

  • Conclusion: Auch Assassin's Creed II: Discovery gesellt sich in die Reihe der unnötigen SpinOffs der Franchise und weiß vor allem durch fehlenden Abwechslungsreichtum, eine unüberlegte Steuerung, die Kürze der Kampagne und das an sich schwache Gameplay zu verärgern. Deshalb kann man den Titel trotz der gelungenen 2D-Umsetzung eigentlich kaum jemandem empfehlen, außer vielleicht den alteingesessenen Assassin's Creed Fans, die jeden Titel der Reihe verschlingen. Schade drum.
  • Pros: 2D-Umgebung lässt gutes Feeling aufkommen, Anfangs macht's sogar Spaß..., Nette Charaktermodelle, Sprung in 2. Dimension gelungen, Guter Score, Angenehme Sprachausgabe, Nette Soundeffekte, Hilfreiche Tipps zum Einstieg, Moderater Schwierigkeitsgrad...
  • Cons: ...wird aber schnell eintönig, Zu wenig Abwechslung, Zu kurz, Belanglose Geschichte, Kämpfe zu simpel aufgebaut, Abwechslungslose Level, Stylus kaum einsetzbar, Buttonsteuerung funktioniert nicht reibungslos, ...der Profis unterfordert
