Assassin's Creed 2 Teaser site now is up. Unfortunately, we don't learn so much about the game.
WOOO!!!! I loved the first!!! =D Can't wait to see the new game! W00t!
There were some reasons: --Combat makes no sense at all. There is really no skill. POP had better combat than this. --The objectives seemed pointless and dull. --Using stealth seemed like a waste of time. --Environments become dull after the 2 or so mission. --There isn't anything to do interesting in the city. I'll pass unless they do MAJOR improvements. The game just didn't interest me after i played uncharted, and prince of persia.
Chaos. I agree. I REALLY liked AC, but it was repetitive in every sense of the word. I think they spent so long trying to perfect everything, they forgot the gameplay. It was fun as hell just to go whereever you want though. I hope in the sequel they can really expand it and do some more interesting things.
Well we do know it has something to do with the Animus again. So I expect a dual story like the 1st game, switching between Today and the past
AC was a great idea but they really need to improve a lot if they want my money back.
i never got into AC at all and most of my friends LOVE it... I always felt lie kthe game basically played itself, especially the so called climbing. Yet it was hard to be "stealthy" due to weird controls and there was zero reward. ITs much easier to jsut kill everyone and walk away. I never understood why people love this game.
I agree with every point that Chaos made.. But why do I still like the game. I think its the mystery surrounding the story that drove it forward for me.. I was pritty much playing just to watch the next cutscene. Also the concept of tapping into your ancestors memories through your own brain is awesome. Hopefully they will build on the first games shortfalls and make the second one a truly epic experiance.
I agree,I cannot wait to see and then play the next one. The first one to me was a "flawed masterpiece". The number 1 thing they need to do,is make sure the game has no "repetitive" gameplay.At all costs,throughout the game have nothing repeated.Number 1 rule in their plans.Keep it fresh! On my wish list: .....I would love to see the rumored swimming mode added.Along with a MGS style stealth mode added to what they had.Will flight be possible...Batman style?...As I said,a wish list... The missions/objectives and fighting should be tweaked,improved upon,but thats something I think they can do if they listen to the fans,the climbing/platforming were real nice,and I am interested to see what they can improve upon on this...Possibly short gliding distances.Batman style? I wonder if the setting will be in Venice? Muskets added to the weapons list? Cant wait for more info...
Eurogamer is prepping a PS3/360 comparison of the website as we speak! I'll save you having to read it though. Even though you can't view the website on the 360 because it doesn't have a browser - Eurogamer will still say the 360 website for Assassin's Creed 2 looks better on the 360. If it were Gametrailers, they'd just post the pictures of the website running on the PS3's browser, call it the 360 version and say it runs better on the 360. :)
But The first iteration is probably among the most overhyped games this generation right next to Crysis and Halo 3.
But at the end of the vid, for those who didn't catch it, it says Game Informer 4.16.09 reversed, so we'll get more info soon enough. http://i39.tinypic.com/2zoz...
I do agree with you guys... It was kinda repetitive, but what it lacked in gameplay it made up in story.... I loved the suspense and the characterization... I hated the voice behind Altair though, too cliche, but i loved the twist in the end and how it ended.. Plus there are a lot of loop holes to fill story wise... The satellite thingy etc.... I really want to see where the story picks off =D
When the info said 'Unfortunately, we don't learn so much about the game.' I really didn't expect the site to be so empty :( I loved what they got right in the previous game (the horse especially). I'm really looking forward to seeing how this game turns out. I really hope they've listened to community feedback and actually fulfill its potential because potentially, it could be a great game.
Sorry but you have A LOT to do in order to get me interested in this game. **On a side note there is a certain amount of power having 1 bubble. No one can further dig you down and other people have a choice. Honor censorship or click on the this user has 1 bubble... Either way you own yourselves. Not to mention if you want bubbles its brain dead easy to get them... Then again who gives a PHUCK about this website its garbage.
I loved the platforming, exploration, and story from the first AC. Now just make the combat and objectives a bit more varied and in-depth and we'll have a sure winner.
This first game had so much potential if it wasn't for the cut and past side missions and cities.
We all know why that had to happen. It's called DVD9, or should I say DVD7. lol
technically, the game was outstanding. Gameplay, it wasn't much.
Sums up the game for me. Technically it was a masterpiece, they just forgot to actually make an epic game. Story was good though and i enjoyed it for a while but 10 minutes on the game and i have to put it down.
Didn't even know this was announced! SWEEET!!!!
I liked the first one although I rented it. It did get a little repetitive but still it was quite good.
Interested is me I enjoyed the heck out of the 1st
What exactly is this? It is what you are sent to when the symbol after the video is clicked. http://static2.cdn.ubi.com/... Edit: The main site's menu says "camera detection required" blah blah blah when you click on a menu item. My camera is hooked up, but it does not seem to be working. Edit Again: I just had to reload the page; it gives a teaser image of the protagonist's weapon.
could you screen print the image and post it here
Most repetitive game Ive ever played.
augmented reality link you print the card hook up your web cam click the animus symbol and it will open a web video page point the symbol at the camera. Its pretty cool tech, iv seen a GE site that uses it.
We will be able to fly/glide? Or was it only me who saw the winged arms during the video?
If you watch carefully the video at the end there are plans of the hand knife and after that some plans of artificial wings.I think in AC 2 Altair will be able to fly.Just like batman does but for short distances. And for the record Altair is an arabic word, it means the Flyer in english. So that makes sense.Besides that it was said that altair will be able to swim.This sequel will surpass all expectations.
I kind of liked the first one because the setting but I didn't like collecting information for assassination and it was pretty repetitive.
The first game botched almost everything up, especially the story. It would've been so much better if they had just done weird sh1t throughout the game and at the end reveal that it was the animus. It was fun but they could've made it so much better. Besides what the fvck was up with those unskippable cutscenes after you stabbed the targets in the throat? Last I checked having a dagger in your larynx didn't make someone chatty.
boring game like first...
I admit that the story didn't make any sense, but the game was still damn entertaining. That is what a pay for...to be entertained! replay factors is not really there...I guess you can do the side missions...but I think altogether it was a very decent game.
I watched paint dry while playing the first game. And the paint got more viewing time. On a serious note, just got boring too quickly. Combat needs to be more solid, needs alot more to keep you interested. The memory stuff got on my nerves, just do a bloody story and autosave as you go along. I got the new pop, and the backtracking is too silly, decent enough game and it's funny stuff character wise. Lets play a game. There's something beginning with s. Made me LOL. I hope they make it more interesting, and maybe co-op this time around, would be fun.
the only part of the 1st game I really enjoyed was scaling up the buildings to the way-points and that just isn't worth 60 bucks to me. Everything else was just doing the same thing over and over and over again. I am sure the 2nd will follow suit with the 1st in that respect which is why I will wait and grab it when it hits 20-30 bucks.
haha oblivion suffered the same fate!
the first 2 hours of AC were amazing. but it really got boring after some time. i hope they learned something and will deliver an awesome game now.
when you show the symbol to the web cam a cg arm pops up with the assasin blade it looks like the shirt altair is wearing has cuffs, almost like pirate cuffs more english rennisance.
watch the intro click on the symbol in the middle load the pdf print the document go back to the website click the animus symbol on the left side of the screen allow website to use you computers camera once your image appears place the image in front of the camera check out some cool I like cutting out he symbol in a square and tape it onto the base of my palm or thumb
I loved the combat. It was unique. I would like to see climbing and stalking through the crowds not only in the past, but in the presant day in the busy streets! That would be awesome! I thought the first game was going to go there, but it never did.
It's back!!! Altair is back!!!! THE ASSASSIN'S CREED 2
I keep looking at the page. It looks almost like ancient England... What's with the wings I'm seeing? maybe we'll get a flying mechanic somewhere. It almost looks like diagrams of a new blade, and some wing mechanism. It's not Altiar though, the blade doesn't cross through the finger. There is no Severed finger in the picture. This one goes beside the hand...
I won't get caught up in the hype this time and wait for the reviews. Assassin's Creed sucked. Bad AI, Bad gameplay
Since back then the whole Idea was fresh and new, and Jade Raymond got everyone all excited, and made them run out and buy the game. Because they had never seen anyone so beautiful in video gaming that actually work on the game, so that shock to the system sent sales though the roof.. ..-but part 2 is on it's own. No Jade Raymond to save it, that love spell won't work this time around. -So they better have really went to work hard on part 2, if they want to see even half of the sales part 1 had. Which I believe was over 8 million copies sold.
You have to notice how long the loading screen hangs on 69%! Assassin's Creed interactive porno here we come!
I will be looking forward. I hope they don't change it too much I don't want to to become like Prince Of Persia Warrior Within. It was perfect the way it is. I hope they release a Trophy patch for the first one to get us to play it again.
i hate teasers lol i prefer gameplay imediately. and i prefer the game :D
