Ò Ò H Q : Today on Pay, Rent or Pass we are checking out the brand new sequel from
Ubisoft Assassins Creed 2. The first title had a lot of things that really annoyed many
gamers... Does the sequel remedy the problems of the first? Time to find out.
Gameplay Assassins Creed 2 picks up right where the
last game left off. You are in control of Desmond and you are broken out of the Abstergo
Labs and moved to another location to drop back into the virtual world and once again
discover the secrets stored in your DNA.. The reason for reentering the animus this
time around is to learn how to become a master assassin himself in the real world. Desmond
is in control of a new ancestor, the assassin Ezio. Ezio was an assassin in Italy in the
1400’s and this is the character that the players will be controlling throughout the
game. Assassins Creed 2 utilizes a lot of the same basic gameplay mechanics from the
first game but really puts on a polish and adds more of them. The game runs much smoother
then the first which was a big pain while in combat in the first title. There is much
more for players to do in the sequel as the developers have added in a lot more mission
types and a variety of side quests as well. I found myself getting way off course of the
main storyline because I was too busy with all the side missions the game provided me
with. AC2 also has a nice selection of new weapons and armor for players to use while
assassinating their targets. Hammers, small daggers, throwing knives and even a gun at
one point are just a small sampling of the weapons available. The game rewards players
with cash as missions are completed or by having players find hidden treasure chests
throughout the different areas in the game. Players can then use the in game money to
upgrade armor and buy new weapons. Players should be forewarned as well that Assassins
Creed 2 is a very story driven game, many people were turned off by that in the first
game, but I have to say that this time around the story is really quite good. So quit hating.
Graphics
AC2 looks great. Its amazing to watch each of the levels load up when you start a new
area in the game or when you synchronize your map perched high about the cities. The character
models all look much better this time around and the character animations are stellar.
There are so many different ways to assassinate enemies this time around and all of the animations
that show you doing so are bad ass.
Sound
One of the
biggest complaints I had with the first Assassins Creed was the voice-acting. It was abysmal.
Not convincing at all. Luckily this time around the voice acting at least sounds somewhat
credible. I can believe these guys are Italians... sure. Its a good thing too, because I mentioned
that this is one helluva story driven game so the voice acting needs to be good. Its
also worth mentioning that the soundtrack in this game is really well done. It helped
to make me feel like I was in Italy in the 1400’s as an assassin.
Controls
This is one of the few things about this game that I dont like. The controls are really
finicky, most of the game has you slinking across rooftops, clambering up the sides of
buildings, or walking across thin platforms in very high places. This is all accomplished
by holding down the right trigger and then using a to free-run. I had a hell of a time
getting this down, for the life of me, no matter what I would do, it seemed like Ezio
had a mind of his own and would jump wherever the hell he wanted which was usually to his
death. It took me a long time to really get the controls down for this part of the game
and the learning curve is just a little too steep for my tastes. Combat however is really
simple and easy to control, so I dont know how the hell things got so skewed for the
climbing controls.
Bottomline
Assassins Creed 2 is a shinning example of a good sequel. Ubisoft took the things that
didn't work and either got rid of them or fixed them. They took the things that worked
well and polished them and added more of them. The game has a boatload of replay value for
completionists with hidden treasure chests and collectables strewn about the different
cities. I would have to say that if you liked the first game but finished feeling like you
needed a little more then Assassins Creed 2 is right up your alley. This one is a pay.
