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.

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



2nd edit.

Fucking metal!

i didnt like the first one so unless this one is a lot different, im not getting it
DiO
Well, those points there show that it is much different. I loved the 1st one. Beat it 3 times.
DuPz0r
I'm looking forward to playing it.
Indy
Hopefully, this one should be alot better now that they know where they went wrong with the first. Looks quite good atm, I love free running.
PabloHoneyOle
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...

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%
Pieface
I thought the original game was great, I can't wait for this one to come out.
Marney1
The art for this game is amazing.
The Awesome One
This game sounds great.
Ex-PS Fanboy
I might buy it. I just haven't played the original since I beat it. I hope it has a better re-play value...
Zen
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.
GLC
Hmm.... I'll most probably get this.....
Mr Pink
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

how is that negative? im not saying they are bad, im saying it looks the same as the first one. So if you are expecting me to say "OMG THAT LOOKS AWESOME", Im not cause ive already seen it before.

check this pic


Looks good right? Oh wait, thats the original Assassin's creed. I could put this picture with the Assassin's Creed II pics and no one would say anything (unless they notice that the characters dont belong)

The first game was ahead of it's time, I'm SURE the graphics are better for the second game are better than the first. They wouldn't produce another game and just use the same graphics engine. From the screenshots, it may look similar (and unimpressive to some) but I'm sure that's not the case and assuming so would be ignorant.

Agreed man. I loved the first game. I can't wait for this.
Kid_Notorious
New e3 trailer makes this one look like must have i.e davinci's flying machine
DuPz0r
yeah. The cinematics is the best i've seen in a game before. Hopefully the game flows as bit better then the first. And there should be alot more to do this time round.
bOnEs
i wouldn't care if the graphics aren't that much improved over the previous one because, it was the gameplay of the first one that had me hooked... never have i been able to scale a city so fluidly as i did in the first one... not even infamous can pull that one off... it comes close but, it was completely natural in assassin's creed...

the graphics were good enough in the first one that, if we were to get the exact same graphics (which we won't because this is a different time and setting), i'd still be happy... i'm just ecstatic over the gameplay changes from the first one... this adventure might be fun instead of repetitive...
ScrambledEggs
I agree with bones, the graphics in the first one were amazing. They defined "nex-gen". They were fucking BEAUTIFUL. The only thing that got in the way was the repetitive nature of the missions. Eavesdrop, pickpocket, beat-up, collect flags, kill. It was great for the first mission, then got repetitive quickly.

The next game should feature more elements relating to the assassination. In the E3 trailer, the assassin pays the hookers to distract the target; making the assassination possible. If there are more elements like this, I will be happy.
