Fantastic First Impressions...
The OXM review was just the beginning. Expect plenty more scores in the near future, in the mean time numerous sites have posted their impressions of the first few hours of the game. Take a look, they are positively glowing.

Gamespot “The game is looking very impressive, with the new locations and the historically accurate setting, and the hours flew by as we played.”

IGN
“Assassin’s Creed II is a lot more than anyone expected.”

Nowgamer “A month to go and the build is more polished than we could’ve possibly hoped. This is going to be very, very good.”

CVG “It’s pure fan service, as are most of the promising changes we’ve seen in the game so far.”

TVG “Few single-player games offer 27 hours of gameplay as a ballpark figure and with its setting, story and free-running looking first class, the stage is set for AC II to be a great game.”

16 different mission types (mission variety... each mission is different...i.e. an investigative mission turns into a chase mission and then into an assassination)

Roughly 200 missions (100 story missions, 100 side quests)

Assassin's Creed: Bloodlines for the PSP will bridge the gap between Assassin's Creed (Altair's adventure continues) & Assassin's Creed 2

Ezio has 10 fingers because of Leonardo Da Vinci as opposite to Altair who only had 9 fingers... we'll find out the reason why later on. :evilsmile:

Character Progression: Ezio was not an assassin at first, and later on he will become an assassin himself with the help of his friends who will teach him how.

Economic System: You can now buy / upgrade weapons, hire or bribe someone with money... etc. (loot, pickpocket)

Ang alam ko medieval europe or france yung setting, isa ulit ancestor ang bibisitahin ni desmond habang andun siya sa room kasi nakakasawa na daw mag dice at bored na siya kasi wala pa yung chick nurse niya nag magaadminister ng full body workup. :evilsmile:

Question of the year: Saang console lalaruin ni altahi ang AC2? :bigmouth:

Posible siguro na napuntahan nang ancestors ni desmond yung mga locations sa writings. Kung ganun nga, bukod sa iba't ibang oras ay ibang ibang location na rin ang mapupuntahan ni desmond sa animus. :clap:

May problema nga lang dun sa scenario na yun, conflicting sa comicbook... :grumpy:

rumor lang?
Venice 15th/16th century, The camera pans onto the city focusing on the hussle and bussle of daily life. think the civilians from assassins creed 1 but more interactive with each other. During this scene we see a man passing money to the hands of an attractive girl, (originally i didn't notice this but was told by the rep that it does happen).

2 Men, a relatively large one and a skinny one step off a boat with a cohort of guards and proceed to a Square within the city, where a masked ball was taking place. Every ones dancing around, not much to say here other than that it was a ball.

The girl seen previously accepting the bribe, approaches the skinnier of the two men and takes him off to the crowd, for a dance, she was good looking, who'd say no. The camera spins around them centrally, but focusing on the dancers as a whole.

A guy comes out from the side, dressed in dancers garb and proceeds to stab this skinnier man in the neck, with what looks like the finger blade from AC1. Man dies spewing blood, garbble garbble etcetc.

The 2nd of the men, the fatter one, notices this and proceeds to run, after sending the guards after the protagonist. Who, by this time has reached the roof and runs parallel to the target who continues to run on the floor. The player jumps off onto the ground and the fat man stops. commenting on the fanciness of the jump.

Facing off, the fat man continues to speak. i cant quite recall the exact words but it was something along the lines of "It was a shame that your mother had to die, she was a beautiful woman ... Your father on the other hand, it was due to your arrogance that he died"

The protagonist then shoots at the fat man with a bolt pistol, and the trailer ends.

Post trailer discussion, a family feud was hinted at, yet nothing was said about the brotherhood. Disguises were also said to play a part in this game. The trailer was not fully textured or rendered but seemed on par to the crow trailer originally showed for assassins creed 1. due to the lack of textures and the like combined with the fluidity i would assume it wasn't game play. furthermore after the trailer was shown, i was shown 3 pictures of the protagonist, all in different clothes and chose to pick a favourite. significantly underneath the word "ezio" was written on all 3 pictures. I believe this to be the guys name, as it sounds Italian. Again his face wasn't entirely shown, so i assume it is the future reliving the past again.

Was told that this would be shown at a game expo this year, but not told which one. Hinted E3 when pressured. Release was given though on a broad scale. Late this year early next.
