20 hours of pure un-adulterated fun,
This review is from: Assassin's Creed II: Complete Edition (PS3) (Video Game)
This version has all the added extras so you won't have to spend more money on the DLC which is a major bonus and it keeps the story linear rather than coming back later to do the bits you missed due to them not being released.
I blasted through the story mode on this game and it took me well over 20 hours, it's quite fantastic, much more varied than the previous incarnation (which i loved) with more assassination options, better and tighter combat system, different collections (of which i have only completed a couple) and a much more fluid movement system than the first game. The story again centres around the pieces of eden, where they are hidden how to find them and it was all set up by Altier from the first game. it makes you want to play to the end and find out what is going on and why the modern templars are so hell bent on getting info from Desmond, that is revealed at the end of this game to some extent, fans of the Matthew Reilly novels will be beam at the revelation.
I am very much looking forward to the next game as i can't see where the story will go, which is a rarity for me. I advise this game to lovers of action, in depth convoluted stories and excellent tight gameplay.
