It was last year when I went to the game store a found a used copy of the first Assassin’s Creed and thought, ”Guess I’ll pick this one up and see how it is.” It was awesome! SO, when I heard of Assassin’s Creed 2 coming out I knew I had to have it. Once again I was not disappointed. Everything that was great about the first one has been improved in this one.
The graphics are great, however, I felt that during the cut scenes the character graphics could have been better. They seemed not as sharp or detailed as the first Assassin’s Creed. The game play is great, the action is awesome, and I did love those brain teasers as I went around unlocking the truth. Hunting down all the feathers was a pain in the butt, and the award for finding all 100 is….well…..I’ll let you find out for yourself.
I would suggest before playing the game watching the short film in the extras option. It gives a cool insight/slight back story before you kick off the game. If you have not played any of the Assassin’s Creed games I need to warn you about the endings…it is to be a trilogy….the story will come full arch once the third one is released…my guess would be sometime in 2012….possibly in the third or fourth quarter. As always, I tried not to give any details away so you can enjoy the game on your own and this one will be a thrill ride. Assassin’s Creed 2 is now amongst my top ten and sure it will be in yours.
Parents, there is some language you may want to be aware of. I did hear the F-bomb once or twice, among other choice slang. Also, Assassin’s Creed 2 does have some mild adult themes. Ages 17 and up, for language, mild sexual content, and violence (but of course violence you are an assassin what else would you expect). I must give this a full 5 star rating. You heard me right 5 stars!!! This game is an instant classic….can’t wait for the 3rd installment.
