It is hard to focus on the actual plot
9 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

What can I say. I have played it for about 4 days and finally beat it. The plot goes lost early on. I just could not focus on it. Mostly since every cut-scene, angle and tone of voice from the extremely mediocre actors never grips you.

At first - day one of playing - the game felt great. It was interesting; climbing, jumping, fencing. But it got so, very repetitive that after two days everything just happened.

Furthermore I felt that the character should receive more upgrades throughout the game, not just getting weapons and "health" slots. You should have been given the ability to climb faster. To jump more accurately. The only motion-upgrade you got early on was "grab" when you jump. More of that stuff would have helped. Maybe even an added body-armor or something more interchangeable with the look of the character to make things interesting throughout the game. Better A.I. and more dynamic dialog from the people in the streets would also have been a plus (think GTA 4, which is massive in that department... and gets your attention completely). Last, to the wish-list would be a lot more ways of gathering information. You have like three or four ways to do it, and they get really boring already the second time around.

Most focus has been put on the look of the game and the groundbreaking climbable environment.

Worst was the repetition of things, over and over again, and the stale and uninspiring voice-acting. The actor who did Altaïr in particular sucked and made me listen to something else instead.

Best was the more interesting and dynamic last "act" of the game (no spoilers here), the game's music and the ability to break the leg of an enemy which made me outright a joying sadistic.

I hope for a much better Assassin's Creed 2.
