So we are here to play and talk about
A lot of people like it! Reviews are glowing but you aren't here to read reviews, and if you are just head over to its Metacritic page
, close your eyes, spin your mouse around really fast and click one because it will be a positive review.
It is the direct sequel to
Which a lot of people also liked! It is awesome, and it's highly recommended you play it before jumping into ACB. It added a lot to the franchise in terms of crazy Da Vinci Code-like story depth, mission variety, likable and memorable characters, light world-building and a billion other things. All told, it was a stellar sequel to:
Love it or hate it. Most people hate it. There were small glimmers of the fantastic game that AC2 is hidden underneath layers of repetitive missions, a terribly trite and boring story (until the end, which is the lead-in for AC2), shallow combat (in comparison), tiny weapon selection, motherfucking 300 collectible flags that you're supposed to find by sheer luck

On the plus side, Kristen Bell for whatever reason looks much better in AC1 than in 2 or Brotherhood.

PSN doesn't have anything cool like that, so here is the PSN
player list Kadoken collected from the last AC thread. PM me if you want to be added to it.
I am playing AC2, help me find the feathers because there isn't a cool in-game map to find them like in Brotherhood!
GamesRadar has a pretty good guide up for this.
When's the PC version coming out?
Never! Oh wait, actually it's Q1 of next year. It's going to have Ubisoft's retarded DRM, so ask yourself: Is this really a route you want to go down?
