Well deserved to a truly great series. Revelations can't come soon enough. Take note Activision, these games are an example that the game I played four years ago is not THE EXACT SAME game i'm playing now. Congrats Ubi!

To be honest, apart from having personal assassins in Brotherhood, the game is more or less exactly the same as AC2.

Redempteur2108d ago (Edited 2108d ago )

Yeah despite the virtual training , the 100% sync challenge missions and the multiplayer .

Not to mention the simple scope of the map ( larger )

Same thing , right ? /s

princejb1342108d ago

sorry redempteur, i love assassin creed as i have all of them and buying revelation, but they similar in a lot of ways
the only added bonus was the multiplayer

rezzah2108d ago

it's AC 2.5 and yet still has more variety in gameplay mechanics then MW3 (2.5)

Redempteur2108d ago (Edited 2108d ago )

Yeah they are similar , they follow the same gameplay rules. This complain is null and void

Ubisoft corrected a lot of things that didn't work well in each title and improved navigation toward in the cities .
Can't swim ? solved ! better movement ( solved ! ) more weapons ? more ways to uses the weapons ? Counter too powerfull ? ( corrected ! )various bombs ? upgrading your cities ?
multiplayer? Side objectives ? virtual training challenges ? friends scores comparatifs ?

And i could continue to list each things that was added "later" ( not present in the first creed game at all )

Sequels are similar to each others ..i though that was obvious , very much thanks for your input "princejb134".

Next time i'll see someone telling me that the assasin dens didn't change anything in the gameplay yet are very recent.

Or that the new hook blade doesn't change how you play the game at all ..

But yeah yeah .. it's all the same lol /s

i only played the first one and was knda turned off to the franchise and havent payed attention to it anymore. so its worth checkin out now?

Most definitely. The difference between AC1 and AC2 is the same as the difference between Uncharted 1 and Uncharted 2, or even Arkham Asylum as compared with Arkham City.

If you play AC 2, do the truth puzzles. You haven't played AC unless you've uncovered the truth.

Just to give you an idea of how good the game is - back in 2009 during the VGAs in the game of the year category Uncharted 2 beat out, among others, AC2 to walk away with the award.

However in the Action Adventure Category - guess who beat Uncharted 2?

You are missing out, brother
Get to it

Oh... and to answer your question. Getting back into the franchise with Revelations, would be like watching the third part of The Matrix first.

damnyouretall2108d ago

cool i can pick up ac2 cheap. ill take youre word for it. thnx man

Congrats live for the Creed Nothing is true everything is permitted( Ezio Voice)

GamersRulz2108d ago

releasing at yearly basis will kill any franchise, people will get tired at some point and generating new ideas will become harder and harder with every new release.

BushLitter2108d ago

You are quite right, but for the time being that is not happening. There will definitely be another installment next year, it being 2012 and all, and a November 2012 will be just in time for the end of the world :)

When it happens that the franchise starts losing its spark, I'll be the first to admit it.

But until then... roll on AC:R

Congrats to Ubisoft and Assassin's Creed. Not my cup of tea, but still a quality franchise.
