I think I'll join you.I think I might just sob uncontrollablyDespite that I had fun with the game
Assassin's Creed II
Pretty short, only took me about 15 hours. You could probably finish it on ten if you went straight for the story instead of hunting around for glyphs, codex pages, statues, seals, and view points like I did. Conversely you could probably add five hours doing all the side missions and hunting down feathers. The presentation and pacing are much improved from the last game, though aside from some cash there's not much point to doing the side stuff anymore and I was pretty much done collecting cash halfway through the game aside from the occasional collection of interest. Combat gets a few new maneuvers though certain weapons are useless against certain enemies. Higher ranking enemies can't be countered with your hidden blades for example, same for sword/dagger against two handed weapons. Only thing is, they don't really tell you this anywhere.
Though, my biggest complaint would be the trouble I had just running around. Ezio seemed to have an even greater tendency than Altair did to jump off at the wrong angle. This seemed to get more noticeable as time went on; the last three or four hours being the worst.
Despite that I had fun with the game (the pistol attachment for the hidden blade in particular was amusing). I might end up getting the DLC at some point.
Win.Just beat Dead Space.
I had no interest in it when I initially purchased it, but I felt in a horror mood, and.... I LOVED IT. Outstanding game.
