Anyone else as excited about this game as I am?



The original A.C. is still one of my favorite games, and by all that I've seen, the sequel looks like it will be absolutely overwhelming. I can't wait for this game to be released!

I must be one of the only people out there who couldn't care less about MW2's FPS rehash but am hugely pumped about AC2. The developers sound like they've really tried to nail what was lacking in the first one, and the art-history nerd in me squeals in delight at the thought of running around Renaissance Italy like a monkey on crack.

The big downer is that I preordered since I want the special edition, but I'm going to have to force myself to not touch the game until I get this LSAT crap done with. Gonna be soooo satisfying being able to dedicate myself to AC2 once that root canal of an exam is over though.

Also, without giving too much away plotwise, "It's-a me, Mario!" is an actual, scripted line in the game, and you'll be able to get into a fistfight WITH THE FREAKING POPE.

If that dosen't get you pumped up for this game I don't know what will.

Is this game like Hitman + Thief? Because I haven't played this before.

Kiiiiiinda like Hitman, not like Thief so much, though. There's a bit of a stealth element, but it's based largely on getting a positioning that lets you pull off a quick one-hit kill and being able to blend into crowds to get aggressive guards off your track. Or you can hire thieves or prostitutes to create distractions so you can complete your objective with less resistance.

Which was a brilliant idea by the game developers.

I'm maybe 7 or 8 hours into this game now, and have not been disappointed in the least. The only complaint I have is about the controls when running top speed across rooftops during the "race" missions, or chasing the pickpockets. Too many times Ezio will jump off the roof in a vastly different direction than I was pointing him in, though that was something that happened in AC1 as well.

Other than that, this game has been fantastic so far. Can't wait to see what else they're going to throw my way.

Oh great don't tell me it has an ending like the one it had in the first.

Let me know.

It's literally the last three minutes of the game so it's not like it's hugely significant in terms of game play but it really goes out there. Without spoiling too much, they kiiiinda rip off Stargate...

If you found the first AC enjoyable, absolutely it's worth it. They've improved upon virtually everything from the first game, and there's a ton of material - I barely touched the extra content beyond completing the Assassin Tombs and it still took me almost about 16 hours to finish the main story.

You should. You definitely should.

That said, I just beat it about 10 minutes ago, and yeah... Definitely scratching my head too. (Relax, no spoilers here).

This game was absolutely fantastic. Now, on to replaying it!

OH YEAH. I seriously had the "OH NO THEY DIDN'T" thought going through my head!!

(BTW, in an effort to keep this spoiler free, I modded your post a bit. Hope you don't mind).
