Destructoid: Assassin's Creed 2 Review

Assassin's Creed 2 has tried all sorts of tactics to improve upon the original, but none of these attempts have worked. The game's variety and length come across as nothing more than smoke and mirrors, the endless, grinding busywork that contributes nothing to the overall gameplay is inexcusably plentiful and mind-numbingly repetitive, and to top it all off, the game can't even compete in the visuals department and somehow looks worse than the original.

There's really no excuse for standards to be so low here. Assassin's Creed 2 is supposedly a triple-A game. It should have acted like one.

Someone is looking for hits.

This game is f*cking awesome. These guys need to find something else to write about since gaming apparently isn't something they understand.

Sh!t a 4.5!!!! Thats just retarded man. This is the best multi-plat to release this year period, and if it weren't for UC2, this would be my GOTY. A 4.5!!!! lol I wouldn't even rate Haze that low. At first I thought 4.5/5, but this is ridiculous.

I agree completely, Soda Popinsky. Destructoid is a joke site.

because there is no way Ubisoft would have sent them a review copy if Destructoid did not guarantee at least an 8.5

never buying a ubisoft game; they are overrated becuase of blackmail/bribes.

read the review. almost everything is true. graphics look buggy especailly for the characters. animation sucks. but because of the ubisoft bribes, you won't find that out in other reviews but you can't deny that it's actually bad when you are playing the game.

Did this person play the game? I have and Its no way a 4.5/10.
Nearly every other review is around 9/10, which is right IMO.
Destructoid want to find a new reviewer for these type of games, he/she must not like them.

i hated the original but AC2 is awesome. I'm addicted to it...second only to uncharted 2 this year. This review is absurd.


I actually am glad to have played this game, and don't think I would mind trying to finish most of the side quests because of Ezio's abilities.

I can understand if he didn't like the game, but it hardly deserves THAT low of a score. What a Moron, Even Dynasty warriors gets over a 4
