The game play is fun and entertaining. I would only say the downfall would there are really no button combos that would make the fights alot better..ie GOD OF WAR 3...The story really sucks you in from the beginning and when it ends you are wanting more. Overall the game is better than the first, which is good and bad. Good because that is what you want in a sequel but bad because they really can't do much better with the third or can they we will see when Assassins creed Brotherhood is released. Now I would not go drop 60 bucks on in because in a few months after the release date they over produce the crap out of it and will drop the price so be patience. now let me talk a minute about the buttons for fighting, pretty much all you have to do is mash mash mash and you will kill the enemy. Which in today's gaming world is kinda of a no-no. This kind of brings me to the enemy. They are really not a challenge at all which is a big disappointment as well. Overall the game can be an epic adventure if they just improve on a few things.
