Picked up on my old save file mostly done memory 5 in Assassin's Creed 2. It took a few minutes to get back into the controls and the flow of the game. I like the premise, go be an assassin and stop the templars from doing secret society things and changing the world in 15th century Italy. As far as collections go, I'm about 74% done the game. I've got ways to go for the main missions though, there's 14 memories and usually two or three plot points per memory. I've started working on the sixth, which involves saving Da Vinci a couple of times, mostly from people who just want you dead and he happens to be there. Aren't you a swell friend.

the fighting is kind of simple, with a basic attack mechanic and a dodge and counter button for quicker dispatching of enemies. All the guards seem to have gone to the Action Movie Villain school and studied the ole only one attacker at a time technique so even when you get surrounded, fighting your way out is always an option.

The series is based on being able to climb a wide array of structures and free running to escape detection and avoid guards. For the most part, it works. You can escape relatively well when being chased and when you take your time to figure out how to go up a structure, it's fairly easy to see your route. There are some platforming situations where the angle of jump seems to be really fussy and your character turns out to be rather suicidal.

Glitches aside, there's a fair amount of collectibles and the missions are lengthy enough to feel like a complete game. I don't feel that once you complete all the side quests and find all the collectibles that there is much replay value.

7.5/10
