Assassin's Creed 2 Review: Part 4 - Was It Fun?

In this, the final part of our Assassin's Creed 2 Review, we ask the all important question: Was It Fun? 

I'm racking my brain trying to think of something that wasn't fun in Assassin's Creed 2 (we won't get started on the moving around with a group of people thing again!) Honestly what would you not find fun about running around over rooftops, assassinating people and a rich and generous storyline that continues to get better and better? If you've played the recent AC games (Black Flag for example) but haven't tried the earlier entries in the series, then I urge you to pick up a copy on Steam or for your console ASAP, it really is worth the money: however much you spend.

If you want a game that lets you run free, do (pretty much) whatever you want, kill whoever you want with some awesome weapons then this is perfect for you. Don't want to play as an Assassin? Then watch out for AC: Rogue coming November 11th, that should be really good fun - you get to play as a Templar!

I always found that the problem with Assassin's Creed games was that, for a long time (for me at least) they sounded like Call Of Duty. Not in the sense that they were FPS games, but that they were released every year (sometimes more than one in a year) and they were one of the only game series' that showed adverts on UK TV. As did CoD. Maybe that was just me being stupid, but to a younger me they seemed like similar experiences. What changed my mind? There was an advert a few years ago with an Assassin (don't ask me which one it was, I couldn't tell you) and it showed the story progressing really nicely, it was all going great. Then there was an Assassination. That was awesome. That changed my mind. Suddenly I wanted to pick up a copy. Of course, it wouldn't be until summer this year that I did, but still; the power of advertising strikes again.

More of a story than a review. I think I got my point across though. AC 2 is awesome! 

Tomorrow sees the full, edited together Review presented with a final score of the game. Next week; our Guild Wars 2 Review.
