I'm really excited to see what happens story-wise. After Assassins Creed's ending, I was left confused, but utterly intrigued. Oh and it looks a lot of fun too. :)

I like the difficulty of the guards. Before, you could easily lose them. Now, they stay on your tail and sound the alarm to guards all around the city. That is very realistic considering that is how they did it back in the day. I'll realize when I play this that I wont notify the guards before I have a weapon to defend myself. I appreciate him showing me how "not" to play. :)

hi, i'm kannan assasin creed 1 is very superb game. the atmosphere of the game is so good. i must appreciate the animation designer, my fav.. thing in the game is counter kill, hide blade, eagle point. etc. and the minus point is the conversations of the charecters or too long. so its like boring i like the action and adventures and arcobatics of the assasin and i love the various cultural properties,weapons and armors etc.... i expeect assasin creed 2 will make me fulfill thanks for giving the wonderful game espesialy animation designers thank you very much

This is the same game, with the same game play - you can't even move 50 yards without the stupid guards getting on your butt and taking all your time up. Not good game play, and it's the same poor play as the first game! All your time in the game is fighting off guards, it really ruins the progressive play of the game and story. Ubisoft is making the same mistakes it made in the first game. Not worth buying, just to get a colored cape.

The first game was horrible. Why in the hell did they make a new one? It looks EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE FIRST ONE. DO NOT BUY! YOU WILL BE DISAPPOINTED.

Real noice. Cant wait. A definite must buy. Oh and why do they always use an xbox 360 for demos and stuff. Everyone knows ps3 is better. (lol probably gonna get loads of thumbs down from the 360 fanboys xD)

Looks interesting, I'm not exactly an Assassin's Creed fan but this game really looks interesting and complex. Too bad the version for DS was dissappointing...

I enjoy AC1 but..from that leap of faith we can see that this game gonna have that typical repetitive stuff..

Why does he run like he has to take a crap at 7:40ish? Other than that this game looks SICK!!!!

yeah, leo, he's all mystic...hehe. This game is so totally epic. Congrats to Ubi. You know, watching this vid, it's like when you show a friend a new game. And, no matter how hard you try and how good you are at the game, you just suck, and make a fool of yourself infront of your friends.

Great game. Definitely a 9 or above as first impressions. I just hope the whole game wont have too much talking/mission briefings than the 1st one. Cutscenes is what I'm hoping from the game. Otherwise, fantastic!!!
