Assassin's Creed 2 Review - GN

GN writes, "First glimpses of Assassin's Creed 2 captivated me, and while I generally don't play games the first day of release, this was an exception; I was determined to play Assassin's Creed 2 as soon as I could. Come hell or high water, I would play it sooner rather than later. Thankfully for me, the omnipotent 'Rental People' sent me a copy on the release date. I was one of the people that loved the first game, repetitive or not. To be a part of it, to experience life almost 1000 years ago made every downfall the game had seem trivial. I just had a great time. Assassin's Creed 2 only improves on what AC1 had, effectively eliminating those few marks that marred its sheen. The combat system is more varied and fluid this time, there's more information, more things to do, and perhaps most importantly, there are more than just 3 things to do in every location.

Is this game really good? I was sooo disappointed from the first. It was one the the biggest let down ever for me, but I see it keeps getting very good scores.

AC2 improves every aspect of the original. Theres more to do and the story is more interesting. You arnt required to do side missions but there is an economy system so you want to get money for weapons/armor/upgrades. The side missions are more interesting by far too. There is a really cool feature which lets you upgrade you villa and you earn money faster as you collect things/renovate the city.

YOu cant just counter to kill enemies any more as they have to be weak for it to work, so it is somewhat more challenging. Still easy if you get upgrades tho. I hope there is a hard mode unlocked.

If you want an open world assassin game there is none better. The new weapons are cool too, and of course the Insane looking cities from afar.
