  Still the best of the bunch

| | See all Sym0nG's reviews (9)

I still place this ahead of the following 2 games (brotherhood and Revelations to date). To start with it's a bit "go here, do this, go there" but after a while you get into it as you get handy with the controls and moves.

The main reason I love this game so much is the quality and feel of the environments you get to wonder around in, and the most important yet subtle element is the perfectly suited soundtrack in the background while you do. These combined provide an amazing atmosphere to the game which is why you quickly get over any control/repetitive story etc issues you may have... the only platinum trophy I have, enough said :)

This is the first time I played an Assassins Creed game and I was really surprised with the huge variety of missions and mini games. The game-play is fantastic and much more challenging in comparison to Prince of Persia: The forgotten sands. I highly recommned this game to gamers who enjoy RPG games and first person action personified gaming.

  A vast improvement on the first.

I played the first game when it was released and IMHO this is a massive leap forward in pretty much any category you care to name.

The first game suffered from being too repetetive, essentially you carried out the same 3-4 mission types over and over to get to the end of level assassination target. ACII is a different beast altogether. You now have a variety of missions and side missions to complete.

The controls are mostly intuitive and easy to grasp and the gameplay is excellent with a complex and entertaining storyline.

You can upgrade your weapons, armour and the town your villa is in. There are a number of different side missions: codex pages, glyphs, assassination targets, treasure and legendary assassins tombs to loot. It can be bandied about a bit too much but this game really does deserve any game of the year noms it gets.

At this price you need to buy this game.

  Best game of the year

Awesome. story for this title is superb, right amount of decision making and twists.. with enough gameplay wiggleroom to make you feel like your in control of the storyline as it enables you to complete objectives in multiple ways. it also tied in perfectly with the first game. parkour has been upgraded and feels more fluent than previously. enviroment is open world again and gives the impression that it is much larger than it already is. beutiful landscapes and graphocs are top noch.. little improvements go a long way in this game. your able to swim now and interact with certain in game civillian characters.. makes who whole experience alot me realistic.

awesome game... famous cameos are also in store for you and i recomend this buy. even if you intend to buy brotherhood... youl have the low down on the story and this game shouldnt go unplayed

  So much better than the first
