Assassin's Creed II Sneaks Past 6 Million Sold

During Ubisoft's fiscal report from earlier today, it was disclosed that sales of Assassin's Creed II - 2009's little engine that could - are now very healthy indeed.

EA should feel stupid now when they claimed that the only way to make money was through derivative, uninspired sequels a la Modern Warfare 2 and Madden.

Well right here is proof that a game doesn't have to be dumbed down for the masses to achieve the sales of the masses. EA and Activision and many other companies need to look at what Ubisoft is doing with Assassin's Creed... Everyone would benefit.

Well anyways, this is for sure one of my top games of this year. The story, gameplay, everything improved greatly over the first and made me not only want but anticipate a third, which is more than can be said of some other certain franchises.

Good for them, for not fearing MW2. I bought the game when It came out, and liked the small amount I played of it; now i can't wait to really dig into the game.

StanLee3253d ago

Congrats. It's improved from the first. I think the 3rd will even better.

Shows that they didn't need to pimp out Jade Raymond to promote a game. The games merits can stand on their own.

I'm glad this game got great sales. The story to this game is one of the best out right now. I cant wait to see what happens at the end. I played through AC right before I played through this one and, in my opinion, this is the best story in video games right now behind MGS and GOW. It has so many WTF moments. Especially The Truth. That was great. Overall great game.

How do carp games like Assassins Creed 2 sell this well? before the game came out everyone was hating on it saying it looks the same as AC1 and the graphics aren't that good and yet those same people probably bought on the first day of release.

Bunch of weirdo's

Even if it looked the same as AC1 it would be totally fine, cause AC1 looks great.

This isn't about graphics though. It's about variety of gameplay. You need to play it yourself to understand how good AC2 is.

AC2 is nowhere a crap game, in fact it's probably the best multi-plat to release last year.. Awesome long game, good gameplay, decent story, great graphics (leaving aside character models... They sucked plain and simple)...

AC2 was what we say a complete UPGRADE from 1 and solved all the problems 1 had. It's great for Ubisoft to acknowledge the problems with 1 and fix them and give us a better game unlike a few other devs cough IW cough... AC2 deserves every sale it gets... I still stand by my statement, IMO AC2 WAS the best multi-plat to hit last year

Mr_Bun3253d ago

The first game was amazing, but suffered from major gameplay flaws. 2nd game has improved immensely and has won some awards, justifiably.

Being a 360 only owner, you should know that graphics aren't everything!

AC2 was good, but with all that extra dosh they should really fix UPlay so I can get my unlocks...

They deserved it, It was far better then the first and exceeded my expectations.
