Assassin's Creed II

Amazon.co.uk Review

Renaissance Italy isn't the usual sort of setting for a video game, but then Assassin's Creed isn't one to play by the rules. Ezio Auditore di Firenze is yet another ancestor of modern day Desmond Miles - a nobleman out to avenge the death of his family in the guise of a shadowy assassin.

Ezio is just as dangerous an assassin as his forebear
Da Vinci's glider is just one of the gadgets on offer
The level of detail in the graphics is astonishing
The canals of Venice come in very handy for stealth attacks

Like the last game you're given total freedom to explore multiple cities, but with greatly improved parkour skills and the new ability to swim. There's also a lot more variety in the missions you undertake - the main complaint with the original game- so you'll never feel you're just doing the same tasks over and over again.

Combat has also been completely overhauled, with dozens of different weapons and a new health system. With no less than Leonardo da Vinci acting as your very own Q style gadget master this stunning sequel improves on every element of the original.

Key Features
  • Renaissance man: Play as an all-new character in 15th century Italy, with new abilities, new weapons and a whole new world to explore.
  • The spice of life: Massively improved mission variety, with new freeform mission structures and many more random events.
  • Tools of the trade: All-new combat system lets you steal weapons from your opponents, use dual hidden blades and even an early form of pistol.
  • Real history: Meet historical figures such as Leonardo da Vinci, Niccolò Machiavelli and Lorenzo de' Medici, all of whom can offer you their own unique brand of aid.
  • Tourist spots: Explore real world locations including Rome, Venice, Florence and Tuscany, as well as specific landmarks such as the Grand Canal and St Mark's Basilica.
About the Developer: Ubisoft Montreal
Ubisoft's huge development studio in Canada has created many of the French publisher's biggest hits, including the Splinter Cell series, the modern Prince of Persia games, Rainbow Six: Vegas, Assassin's Creed, Naruto: Rise of a Ninja and the Far Cry sequels and spin-offs.

5.0 out of 5 stars II times the awesome 29 Nov 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
There was a lot of hype concerning Assassins Creed 2. Along with some concerns; was it just more of the same? Would they fix up some of the problem areas? Could you actually swim?

I'm critical of games and movies. Very much so. So believe me when I say 'Get this, and don't look back.'
Assassins Creed was a good game with fun elements and some really great moments, let down by a few flaws and some slightly grating missions.
Its offspring is not only two in number, but twice as good.

*GAMEPLAY*
--------

The most important part for one an all. And the answer from the get go is; Yes. It is far superior to gameplay in Assassins Creed 1. Gone are the rinse-repeat missions, leading up to the actual assasination. Gone are the clunkier elements of the combat system. Experience an evironment where anything and everything can be used to your advantage. Experience combat where its not a matter of if you will defeat your enemies, but in what manner you bring about their inevitable demises.

*Combat*

Combat, first, as that had a few major flaws. The hidden blade is now a proper weapon in its own right. You can attack with it and, glory be, you can BLOCK with it. Counter kills are every bit as lethal and one-shot-kill as they ever were, with less frustration.

Fists too recieve a major upgrade. You can, if your fancy takes you, punch opponents into the floor. Also, while unarmed and grabbing an opponent, you can now lay three hits on them out of a choise of headbutt, knee and punch.
The best part of the upgraded unarmed combat is the ability to disarm guards. This is especially useful on two of the new enemy classes; Brutes and Seekers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Assassin's Creed gets a Renaissance 8 Jan 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought an XBox 360 just so I could play this game, which appealed immediately to me when I saw the Lineage videos. My PC wouldn't have stood up to it, so you could say that I paid over £200 for the pleasure of paying it. It's totally worth it - this is the best game I have played in a long, long time. It helps that I love all things Italian and historical but I don't think it's necessary to be into that stuff to enjoy this.
The graphics are amazing, the storyline moves on fast and the combat mechanism is really effective and rewards practise. If you are a casual gamer, you can spend a month like I have done on this game doing all the side missions and honing your skills for a couple of hours a day. I like the fact that the game isn't too hard - from my point of view life is too short to be stumped on a particular bit of any game just because you can't execute a certain move in time or get from A to B before a door closes. There some challenging parts but nothing that's going to have you throwing the controller on the floor.
Ezio's character is explored in depth, there is a good variety of weapons (given it's the 16th century) and interplay with other characters. But the most impressive thing is the free-to-explore cities - particularly Florence and Venice, which are superbly rendered.
After starting this game, I went and bought AC1 with the intention of playing it through before continuing. I can understand the things about the first game that frustrated people - the inability to blend with general crowds, the silly journeys back to "base", the lack of economic element and the death if falling into water. Ubi has listened - this game cures all those niggles and gives a new credibility to this brand. I hope that sequences 12 and 13 are filled in by (preferably free) DCL and look forward to an AC3, as long as it is not set in World War Two.
Buy it - it's worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly, An Awesome Achievement, or TAAA for short 12 Feb 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have been reading through many of the reviews submitted over the last few days and I feel that all those people who gave this game a 5 start rating have truly hit the nail on its perfectly formed head. Assassins Creed II is a sublime piece of modern gaming which I found hard to stop playing. However I did have my reservations about this second outing after playing the first instalment.

Now don't get me wrong! Assassins Creed was amazing, the story was wonderful and full of twists and turns and the game play was truly visionary, but the novelty did start to wane a few hours in as many others before me have mentioned, it did become tedious doing similar missions. It lacked a certain something.

Having played AC2 (and not just a demo) it took my reservations and gave them an al mighty kick out the window. I have not been so engrossed in a game since Fallout 3. It's a pleasure to find such depth and clarity, that shows those of us playing it that this was looked after during production and carefully crafted to give the player a fantastic experience and wanting more. So where to start?

Firstly, a grumble. Not about the game but rather about the reviews 1 stars. We are all entitled to an opinion and we do not all have the same tastes. This game does not deserve 1 star, by a mile. What I feel was required was time and patience, to see what an awesome experience this is. Then draw your conclusions to produce a fair and honest review. Placing a single star on something to cause minor anger amongst honest reviewers is not acceptable.

AC2 blends perfectly with the events of the first game. The story of the Templar's is still as strong as ever, with many a twist and turn thrown in for good measure.
