Summary: This game is ok, but I didn't see myself finishing it. This game was ok at first, but once I played it to the 9th sequence; I immediately stopped playing. You will see yourself doing the same things over and over again, and thats really repetitive. The next reason the story was kind of boring and I couldn't get myself to like it. The next is; their is no real challenge, and I never really died. This game is ok, but I dont see myself beating it.
Summary: While a marked improvement from the first game, Assassin's Creed 2 suffers from a number of the same problems the first adventure had. The plot is sloppy, the dialogue ham-fisted and the voice acting is so ridiculously cartoonish in it's attempt to be "authentic" that the main character might as well be wearing a red cap with an M on it. The combat is single button timing based again, and the missions are slightly less repetative.
Summary: I'm sure everyone is to each their own but this is just my opinion. The game along with other genres similar to this basically plays like a feeble attempt of enmeshing a movie with a video game. The graphics are good but not good enough to hold this cinematic style off well. It has a lot of dialogue from the characters with cheesy unrealistic & cliched voices. And not to mention too many cut scenes.
Summary: Far more varied than the previous game, more to do and a more open feel. The storyline is still a bit baffling with a lot of threads and dozens of characters. The setting of mid 15th century renaissance Italy is excellent and there is a good database of interesting snippets along the way to aid immersion into the game world.
Excerpt: "This game looks great, starts off well, but after a couple of hours you just get bored. Every single mission is either assassinating, following (extremely boring) and finding. It has a huge map which can take for ever to get around, and the fighting is smacking a load of buttons as quick as you can. As for the graphics, quite good, but after a while Leo Da Vinci will get on your nerves. He says the same thing every time you speak to him. Please don't ...
Pros: Graphics, but thats all thats good really
Cons: no online, one of the most repetitive games I have ever played
Summary: Assassins Creed two has been out for a while now, so the first thing to know about it is, you are bound to be able to find it second hand for a lot cheaper than the RRP of £44.99. AC2 looks absolutely stunning, especially for those with HD TV's, the graphics are smooth and flow beautifully. The gameplay sees you running around Florence as Ezio Auditore, a young italian who becomes an assassin after your brothers and father are executed.
Pros: Looks absolutely amazing, fun for a first timer to assassins creed
Cons: Becomes stale and repetitive, story is too convuluted to follow easily
Summary: After a while the Italian accent in the voice acting gets a-nnoying. I really wanted to love this game, after the underwhelming Assassin's Creed prequel. At least the gaming press seems to love it. I myself don't get it. I'm still in the "origins" part of the story, with Ezio just getting the proper assassin attire, and trying to piece together what's happening with his papa Auditore. But boy do I find the free-running annoying still.
