Assassins Creed II
8 June 2012
Excerpt: Two years ago the first Assassin’s Creed saw the light of day. The game became a true hype that was mostly created by the game journalists which gave it many high scores. Unfortunately it was a disappointment for the average Joe Schmuck due mostly to the repetitive character of the missions and...
Excerpt: Picking up where Battle of Forli abruptly left off, Bonfire of the Vanities takes Ezio back to Florence to overthrow a corrupt new ruler. Burning piles of books and art line the streets, and Machiavelli returns to direct Ezio's quest.
Excerpt: One of last year's most memorable games kicks off 2010 with a whimper of a downloadable expansion. Battle of Forli picks up where Assassin's Creed II's story leaves off, but its tale ends up feeling half-told, and is abruptly over before you know it.
Assassin's Creed II: Battle of Forli (PS3) - Review
7 February 2010
Excerpt: Battle of Forli is the first downloadable expansion to Assassin’s Creed II. It is set during Animus Memory Sequence 12 of the life of Ezio Auditore da Firenze, taking place after he has located and acquired the Apple of Eden, and a little before he continues to the Vatican to complete his final...
Conclusion: I was cautiously hopeful about the sequel to Assassin's Creed. I had been hopeful about the original, but ended up frustrated halfway through. This time around Ubisoft really hit their target (no pun intended) as they've done what most companies don't do anymore; they improved upon almost all...
Summary: For a game that was based around such an interesting concept, the original Assassin’s Creed faltered just shy of greatness with its repetitive gameplay and boring side missions. Assassin’s Creed 2 hits a few new stumbling blocks of its own but overall is a much better go of things, and feels more...
Conclusion: On the surface Assassin's Creed II is the game of my dreams. A breathtakingly beautiful world, filled with missions and a playground for a parkour practitioner and assassin. My hidden blade is as sharp as my outfight, I can climb any tower and my new best friend Leonardo da Vinci has devised a...
Pros: Beautiful design, technically accomplished, great atmosphere, entertaining parkour elements.
Cons: Many boring missions, uninteresting story, shallow fighting system.
Excerpt: In november blijft het elk jaar weer een moeilijke keuze als het de games betreft die rond deze tijd uit komen. Dit jaar hebben we te maken met het nodige eindejaarsgeweld in de vorm van Borderlands, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Forza, Dragon Age en natuurlijk Assassin's Creed 2.
Pros: Een echte middeleeuwse sfeer, Free-runnen en verbeterd combat-systeem, Betere A.I. en toegankelijker
Cons: Zakt na verloop van tijd iets in, Free-running en controls botsen soms, Ingame is het vaak te stilletjes
Summary: Конечно, к PC-версии Assassin's Creed 2 можно предъявлять более или менее серьезные претензии. Но сам по себе факт, что авторы все-таки выпустили игру на компьютерах, где куча проблем с пиратством, можно рассматривать как подарок. А дареному коню в зубы не смотрят.
