Assassins Creed 2
Here's a game that's loved by all, Assassins Creed 2, the
adventures of Ezio Auditore da Firenze form his teens, until he is well past
the age of the typical video game protagonist. But that's okay because you get
to run around on top of buildings and stab people. Yay.
This game is fun to play period. I don't think there's
anything quite as satisfying as jumping off of a building, on to a passing
guard, and taking out his buddy, in the span of 5 seconds. This makes for a lot
of fun situations of course. For a vast majority of the game when you are
allowed to run around freely, it really makes up for the times when you can't
and just feel like you're only doing this because someone else somewhere couldn't
Typically in and game, things stay pretty much the same throughout.
You walk around, and you fight monsters at regular intervals and you eventually
go into a dungeon that is (supposed to be) significantly harder than everything
else; but the ideal dungeon is pretty much just a scaled up version of what you
were doing already.
this game however, there's really no perceptible difference in difficulty besides
just upping the number of enemies in the room, which given your impressive arsenal
you get by the end of the game, can still be dispatched in seconds. Once you
get the hang of it, the platforming in the game all fells close to the same
difficulty; 80% of my screw ups could be attributed to outside forces like my
controller breaking down, or someone standing in front of the screen.
to summarize those last three paragraphs: I like Assassins Creed 2 whenever it
isn't trying to force me into a narrow room with its own set of rules.
Creed feels like a franchise I could really get into. I'm a history buff, and I
can honestly say that I read every single little factoid bubble; I also like
the stealthy free-runny stabby bits of the game that put the franchise on the
map; but not everything works out as well as it could/should.
When you read all of this, you may get the impression
that I didn't like Assassins Creed 2, but you're wrong. This is my top 10 list,
and this is a game I played that I enjoyed quite a bit. I was just trying to
get this out as quick as possible and these were the first thoughts of mine to
come to this paper. I give it a 9 despite some of the negativity in
