Sounds like it isn't going to have any modern day parts because of the non-regenerating health. In the last game that just signified de-syncing with the memories. Here it seems its actual health. That or this one will have a "twist." That being the same "twist" from the first game.


edit


I'm not fixing the typo on the topic description just cause.



2nd edit.

I'm very excited for this. I still think the 1st game was great; even though it was repetitive; it's magnificent.

Based on the new features D-O listed; it looks like they fix alot of gripes from the first one and really take the game to the next level. I'm probably going to boot up the first game tonight and collect some more flags; kill some more guards.

i too thought the game was way too repetitive... it was fun for it was worth but, after a few days of constantly climbing, eavesdropping, and hiding, it wore itself out rather fast... but, the gameplay was fun and, it sounds like with 16 different mission types, it'll keep the game from getting so damn repetitive and boring... plus, collecting stuff actually gives you a reward, instead of nothing...

i'm sure i'll get it... just because, the first one was fun to play, easily one of the more interesting gaming concepts of a couple years ago... and it looks to stay true to form while fixing some of the grips we all had with the first one...

can't wait to see how gliding across the city looks biggrin.gif...

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

thats pretty much how i feel... first 3 assassinations were fun, the other 6 were like made it feel like you were playing the same game 3 times.

I have to admit it does sound better, but ill have to play it first cause i dont trust that 100%

I might buy it. I just haven't played the original since I beat it. I hope it has a better re-play value...

That image looks insane.

I'm unsure about getting this one, the first one must have been one of the most boring games I've ever played. Graphics were brilliant in the first one, the only redeeming feature for me. That, and the "silent stab" - awesome.

Besides being extremely repetitive and having an extremely overdone story line I enjoyed the original Assassin's Creed. I must admit the teaser got me hyped for the 2nd game, so I might have to keep my eye out on this one.

Also Ubisoft just released a new teaser for the game

It still looks amazing. I sure when you are actually playing it, it will look better than the first.

I appears that there is night and day now.
