Assassins Creed 2 Video Game Review
History of the Game
The Assassins Creed 2 Video Game Review details and explains many of the great features of the game. This is a game that was launched in 2012 as a sequel to the Assassins Creed series of games. The game can be played on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, WII and Windows platforms. This is a game that tells a deep and involved story. Players who are new to the Assassins Creed video games benefit from the introductory story to the game. The story is narrated by the father of Desmond Miles who is revealed to be one of the main characters of the game. Desmond Miles is captured by a group of evil people known as the Templars. The Templars want to rule the world and achieve a form of peace through control whereas the world leaders that Miles comes from want to rule the world through free will. After the abduction of Miles, players are taken on a journey through many different lands and back in history where Miles's ancestor Connor who is half white half Mohawk fight for justice and to make sure that the all-important Animus is not taken by the Templars. The Animus is the key to the game and it will prevent the apocalypse of 2012 hence the search for this apple like device.
The Different Game Options
Throughout the game players can adjust the different weather conditions of the game that change the intensity and difficulty of the explorations. For example it is very hard for Connor and slows Connor down when he has to go through heavy snow. Rain and fog affects Connor in different ways including his vision and his ability to remain upright. The storyline takes Connor all over the world including back to the time of the American Revolution in the 18th Century. Players not only enjoy the action of the game but also benefit from some great history tips as Connor travels around the world and visits landmarks over the years. Players can also see Connor on his warship the Aquila as he embarks on naval expeditions around the globe. Each and every decision and action made by Connor directly affects the progress of the game and the points that the player can receive.
Visiting Locations around the World
The Assassins Creed 2 Video Game Review does detail some of the technical information about the game. There is a multi-player option where players can join a team and work on tasks together or there is a solo option where the players compete against others. This game like many of the excellent video games in the same series has so many aspects to it that it can keep players occupied for hours. Each task introduces new characters to the game whether it is the seamen who are suffering from a rocky ship or may have been beaten by an unknown attacker or it is the harsh weather conditions that hinder the progress of Connor and his men. Players may be eager to skip the introductory movie and go straight to the game play but it is highly recommended to watch the full movie and gain as much knowledge as possible about the story line and game that in turn can help the player make the correct decisions on his progress throughout the game. Because this game is so portable it can be taken anywhere and played at any time.
The characters have realistic features and the graphics of the buildings and sites that the game travels through are clear and excellent giving the player a complete feeling of being involved and part of the game. Players can jump from scene to scene and direct Connor through his travels and battles with the use of the joystick controls of their device. Each small touch of the controls will move Connor in different directions. Players should try out the controls and the reactions of Connor before embarking on a battle in order that they are not stuck in battle with too forceful or not forceful enough reactions. The Assassins Creed 2 Video Game Review does not mention a sequel to this game but there is bound to be one on the way, although it is a quite a feat to follow.
