IncGamers' Assassin's Creed 2 review has gone up.
An excerpt: But travel isn't so much of a chore in AC2. In fact, it's actually a huge improvement to the original. In this game you can opt to take the tedious horse ridden route from location to location, or you can take the fast travel routes which, for a measly sum of money, can take you to any fast travel location in any city...just not the same city. An oversight, but assumingly deliberate, as I'm sure the devs conversation would have gone a little something like this:
"'Eh, do you sink we shud make za player travil wizin za citeeeee?"
"Eh, non, I don't sink so. We cud make heeem run like za beetch 'e eez. Non, only from wun citeeee to anozer."
