^ Argh, must....not.....watch!! :banghead:

I saw a review for it on TV today and the reviewer claimed that just playing through the story will take 40+ hours, with an estimated 40+ more if you're doing all side missions :o :o They said the main gripe they had with the game came from the unchanged combat system that looks rather choreographed. But I quite enjoyed the combat in AC1, it was pretty sweet to pull off those combat moves. My dad spoke in hushed tones to me tonight and asked if I would like it for Christmas, to which I said YES. :D

yea i love the combat in the first one as well. doing those kills only with ur hidden dagger was sick and brutal. the only problem i had was the repetitive of some of the missions but they already fixed it. anyways i preordered mine!  :cow:

A friend of mine just said he's gonna buy it for me for my birthday ! Now that's a friend you want !
But the looks of it, AC2 improved AC1 in every aspect that held back the game on being great!

Been addictively playing Assassin's Creed 2 since its release. :lol: It's a lot of fun! I've already gone through a number of assassinations (not counting the contracts you get from pigeon coops), and I never got bored once. There's SO MUCH to do in the game, I'm not even kidding. (You even get to play as Desmond for a short period of time; beating up Abstergo guards, as well as practicing your assassin skills with Lucy in the hideout -- meaning you get to climb on stacks of boxes, and basically just free-running.)

My favorite parkour spot in Assassin's Creed 2 has definitely got to be Venice. It's just so pretty with its sparkly waters and colorful buildings. The dialogues are pretty awesome, too; unlike the first game, there's actually humor in them, lol.

Just finished playing it a while ago. The story actually took me around 25 hours to finish; but that includes doing a few side missions, and failing a good couple of times during the main story missions, lol.

The ending totally made me go -- as Desmond had put it -- "What the fuck?" It's so unexpected, but I still found it all around satisfying. The ending is a lot less of a cliffhanger than in the first game, and it actually gives us a hint as to where the third installment might take place.

I just beat the game myself. There was a secret tomb you could explore if you used the uplay points earned through out the game. Other than that I don't really think there is anything else.

^Have you gotten 50+ feathers and deposited them in the box in Maria's room at the villa? You'll get a special weapon for that. And I believe that if you collect all the feathers (which is a total drag, ugh...), you get to unlock the Auditore cape. I don't know if it's anything special like the Medici and Venetian capes, but it's worth trying if you want to get an absolute 100% gameplay completion, lol.

^Oh, I totally forgot about the whole Uplay thing. O_O I'll take a stab at it tomorrow~

It really sucks that they don't have the option to replay missions. That would've been awesome. :/

Without giving too many spoilers, where do you guys think the next game will take place ?
I was hoping maybe the present time, and playing as Desmond. Being able to jump from rooftop to rooftop just like The Matrix!

Giving Desmond time is a little in the future, I was hoping for some futuristic city, maybe new york.

On AC2: All I've got to say is damn that's a big box. Possibly the largest box I've seen for a game.

Further updates as events warrant.

I enjoyed playing it very much. I grabbed my attention the whole time I was playing it (unlike the first game) Plus I like to get into fights with the guards and messing them up with my double hidden blades.

I finished the game last night. The story line was very lengthy, which was a major plus plus plus for me. I never wanted it to end. I'm actually quite sad now, and I think I'm gonna go crazy waiting for AC3. Another 2 yrs? ahh!

Noice!!

I remember seeing Ezio and Machiavelli teaming up with Caterina there, and I was like "what, that never happened" but that article explains it, it's gonna be part of the DLC!   :D

Duuuude!! I just had one of the most amazing experiences with AC2 last night! One of the side assassination missions in Tuscany has you tailing a guy to lead you to the guild leader. So I followed him until he eventually found and was talking to the leader, with I think two other guards with him. Couldn't get close to him on the street as he got suspicious when I was near, and I was hoping to poison one of the guards in the hope he could be taken out for me. So I climbed up to the top of the building and thought ok, I'll jump down, assassinate him and then switch to the sword and take out the rest. So I swoop down for the kill and Ezio takes out the target and the man I was tailing with a double blade kill! :o I forgot you could do that! And then I immediately switched to the sword and as one of the two guards swings at me I immediately counter it with an instant kill. I was getting ready for the second guard's attack when he just dropped his sword and ran away! :lol: The whole thing was just so seemless and fluid that it must have scared the crap out of him! :lol:

Also went through the Assassin's Tomb in Tuscany too. Loved it, I mucked up the first encounter with guards, but the rest of the time was all stealth kills. I can't wait to explore the rest.

Good news is that a sequel is bound to be in the works. Over 6 million copies have been sold. And for a game based in Renaissance Italy, as a sequel to a mixed-reception game, that's pretty impressive IMO.
