Visually stunning but......,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Assassin's Creed 1 & 2 - Ubisoft Double Pack (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Ok so I'm fairly new to xbox 360 but enjoyed Tomb Raider so much that I got a console for myself & then set about the task of buying some games that I hoped I would like. So far I have only played the first one & honestly I'm viewing the second with more than a little trepidation. The graphics are very, very good but the gameplay is repetitive & exceeding "clunky". The fighting never feels as if you are in control of the character & more like you just need to press the buttons as quick as possible & hope to win! Going to Damascus & hearing the same women ,say the same thing over & over, in a strong Yorkshire accent (eh?) really does begin to grate on the nerves. The modern "cut scenes" seem pointless & add very little to the game but there is no way to speed through them. I'll try to update this review once I play No.2.
