Excerpt: At the completion of Assassin’s Creed Revelations, when all has been revealed, you find that the only real thing to keep your assassin needs fulfilled is the multiplayer. Soon though you will have that lingering feeling that you need more.
Excerpt: I know that invasive DRM may be a sign of the apocalypse and that it has eaten many of your children. That said, I am checking discussion of Assassin Creed’s II extremely draconian DRM at the door of this review.
Excerpt: Assassin’s Creed II, like its predecessor, is an ambitious third-person action adventure game with a clever conceit: You’re a modern-day bartender reliving your assassin ancestors’ adventures. But where the first game fell short—in repetitive, sometimes-monotonous gameplay—the sequel soars.
Pros: Tons of things to collect; gigantic, lovingly crafted cities to explore.
Cons: Ubisoft's infamous DRM--while not quite as awful as feared--is still a pain in the neck.
Summary: Once again PC gamers have been left in the wake of their console playing friends with a long held back port. This time it’s Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed 2, and while the original may have put you off, this is arguably worth the wait.
Excerpt: I hated Assassin’s Creed . With a passion. I know others seemed to have loved it, but Ubisoft’s 2006 title sticks out as one of my least favorite games of all time. The controls were awkward, the story made no sense and the game was just flat out boring.
Summary: Sequel to the 2007 original , Assassin’s Creed II again follows Desmond Miles’s adventures in the mind bending Animus as he escapes the evil Abstergo Industries and once again plunges into his genetic memory.
