I was clicking on some web pages and found out that OPM (Official Playstation Magazine) Belgium already played out the game and that they are going to put their review on line soon. So I was searching trough some pages here on the forum (searching for a topic like this) but didn't found one. So I decided to make a topic where we put all the reviews that we've found on the internet together http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif So if you have found one, please post it and I'll add it to our list.
Links to reviews:

- Gamerzines Magazine Review (English) (http://www.gamerzines.com/ps3/magazine/p3zine-assassins-creed-2.html) - It has a review of AC2, you can download it with this link!

Links to Reviews of AC Bloodlines:

Because some magazines have "copyrights" and don't post their reviews online I'll put here a list of the magazine-scores that they have given:

<span class="ev_code_BLUE">- Official Xbox Magazine: 9/10 -
"We can think of plenty of words to describe Assassin's Creed 2; Involving, Exciting, Cinematic. But there's one word that sums it up beautifully. KILLER" </span>

<span class="ev_code_BLUE">
A Sequel where everything is improved </span>
<span class="ev_code_BLUE">- Official Playstation Magazine: 9/10 -
The game is Brilliant and the world is rich and complicated. Cancel your plans for Christmas Holiday, weíre spending ours in Italy. </span>

<span class="ev_code_BLUE">- Playstation The Official Magazine: 5/5 -
no tag-line yet. </span>

<span class="ev_code_BLUE">- Gamerzines Magazine: 92/100 -
Expertly executed, Assassin's Creed II's a must-have! </span>

<span class="ev_code_BLUE">- PSM3 Magazine: 94/100 -
Renaissance spawns modern masterpiece </span>

<span class="ev_code_BLUE">- Belgian Official Playstation Magazine: no score yet -
Dutch: Assassin's Creed 2 is op alle vlakken nog beter dan zijn voorganger!
English: Assassin's Creed 2 is on all areas much better then its predecessor! </span>

<span class="ev_code_Blue">- Lucidlan: 9.5/10 -
Ubisoft managed to deploy a true masterpiece. Magnifico! </span>

<span class="ev_code_BLUE">- IGN: 9.2/10 -
Assassin's Creed II transforms a middling action game into an intriguing and consistently entertaining open-world adventure. </span>

<span class="ev_code_BLUE">- Gametrailers: 9.2/10 -
One Creed worth taking </span>

<span class="ev_code_BLUE">- Gamespot: 9/10 -
Assassin's Creed II is what you'd want an action sequel to be: bigger, better, and more beautiful. </span>

So if you have a score of a magazine, please share it. Mention clearly which magazine, the score that they have given and maybe the tag-line they wrote about AC2 (tag-line is like "The Italian Renaissance at its best" or something http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif ).

Reviews already?

I guess so. The game is less than a month away. Meaning that it's gold or just about to become gold and production is happening. This means that reviewers can get a hold of an advanced copy and review the game in time for the release date so people can then see their good reviews and then buy the superuberawesomeness of a game. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

I was reading the the Official Playstation magazine (UK), and they said that they'll put their review in next months magazine. If you want the exact words, they said "There are tons of reasons why Ezio rocks, but you'll have to wait for next month's world exclusive review." This was on page 65 in the UK version issue number 037 (November). The next magazine is on sale from 27th October (at least this is the date for the UK). Hope this helps.

Really? That sounds awesome! I would buy the magazine but apart from that review, the rest will be irrelevant unless any articles are on games that are also on PS3. I'll just wait for the OPM to release their mag if OXM don't post online on Thursday. Can't wait!!!

Ok so I can expect that thursday when I can wake up I will wake up to a review prob right?

Also so the OXM UK review this Thursday and PSM UK this next Tuesday alongside the movie? If yes, Sweet!!!!

Also anybody using an iPhone or a mobile device to access the forums, is it showing up weird?

I got the mag, the review is nothing special, basically tells you all the stuff we already know. They say the best things are the story, which is immersive, the graphics, which are beautiful and the size which they say is a 20 hour story and then loads of extra content. Size wise they compare it to Fallout 3. Less time is spent as Desmond, only three sections, but they say the templar conspiracy is much more in depth than the first game. I dont see why they dont give it a 10, although they mention that one small section of the story is a collectathon.

Cant wait for this to come out even more now! Just got a huge HDTV at my house off campus where i go to school and playing games on it is just awesome. (playing RE5 mercs mostly). If this game is half as awesome as i think it'll be, I hope I'll have no tests following the games release haha.

I don't think scans are worth the effort, it doesn't offer much, a couple of quotes you might like though:

"One of the main reasons Assassins Creed II is so enjoyable, is the fact that this time around your historical character is properly fleshed out [...] you see him become the steely assassin you would expect him to be. Its a subtle and beautifully handled transition to maturity"

"each city is gloriously dense [...] the Italian architecture is considerably more haphazard [...] making negotiating the rooftops a more satisfying challenge it itself"

"its seamless, these sub-missions build neatly towards the eventual assassination attempts, which are just as satisfying as they always were [...] theres generally plenty of freedom in how you approach your mark"

"the mystery not only deepens in the game, but there are also opportunities to dig further into the templar's plans through a series of increasingly confounding mini-games that can be unlocked during your travels"

"There's a huge amount of stuff to do, none of which feels like fluff and filler [...] its the most substantial game we've played since Fallout 3"

"The result is a gorgeous , rich and believable world that draws you in and doesn't let go until the climactic finale"

Not at all, you're made it very clear on the public board you want someone to breach copywrite for you and thatís not ok.

Now as others have said the threads going off topic so please just accept that requesting scans no matter how discrete you think you're being is not allowed and letís get the thread back on topic. If you want to discuss it further contact me in PT

Yes there is one in the OXM but we can't put that one online with all the details because it's illegal... You can read the tagline and score on the first page. Now we're waiting on reviews like one of IGN or other sites who put their reviews online.

I think it's pretty much impossible to say that because they had a review of uncharted a month or something before it released and from other games they only release it one week before the game launches... So it's pretty unpredictable

the amolang
10-24-2009, 04:37 AM
I think it also depends on the developers and how soon they give reviewer copies away. some developers don't even give reviewers a copy of the game, thus they are not reviewed for a longer period of time. but I think (this is just a guess) the online reviews will only start coming out between a week or two from now... but thats just what I think.

The stuff I posted on the third page is the only real judgement offered by the review, the rest reads like a preview/description of the game. The rest isnt really worth reading.

Just read the OPM UK review, its a well written piece, got me really excited. Some info of the SPOILER variety below:

I warned you!

+ Positive

Huge variety of assassination missions: One target locks himself in the highest tower in San Gimignano, and you have to scale the outside while under fire from archers, or how about entering a carnival contest in order to get earn an invitation to a masked ball. Awesome

Intriguing side missions: One mentioned involved hunting down a serial killer who is taking and killing prostitutes.

- negative

One of the later missions involves finding 20 items that are hidden in previously hidden locations, each is in a building with the door guarded by 4 brutes. Lots of repetitive fighting (note: I reckon you could probably get creative though...)

Thats it folks

actually they could. as the game review is in the PS3 magazine, not the xbox one, so they review games separately. in the xbox magazine the reviews will be slightly different, even though its the same game. sadly the xbox version of the review isn't up yet...

Yeah, the leaked video showing the first 2 hours of the game had quite a bit of language in it.

EDIT: Apparently according to the ESBR reasoning for the rating we'll also get Lineage included with the game...

Well, at least judging from "A short live-action movie (i.e., not animated) is included with the game." I would say the whole thing is included. At least I hope so.

now I'm curious, do you guys think that the Italian soldiers and all the people in Italy (in the game of course) will swear in English as well as Italian? I hope not, because that would just seem wierd... Desmond and the modern day assassins will, but I think it would be strange if the Italians did too...

Hey hey gang,

Thought I'd join up as im twitching with excitement.

Now I know the UK release date is the 20th, and by god I cant wait for my Black Edition to arrive, but I cant help but wonder now;

When are the reviews coming in from the US?

Its monday, just gone 11:30 and I cant find a single review yet. I know that most sites are US based so theyre upto, what, 8 hours behind so that makes it around 3am for that part of the world...

I cant help but feel that theyre pulling another Infinity Ward stunt; demanding that the reviews wait until midnight and then be posted at 00:01am on the 17th...which is the stupidest time to read a review in my opinion, as the game is on its way to your doorstep.

Arent reviews meant to help make your decision(s) BEFORE the game is released? Even the day before is cutting it close surely? It drives me insane...and doesnt help with the waiting!

First time Ive been disgusted at IGN.

Regardless of MW2's ridiculous hype, they shouldve been ontop of the reviewing.

MW2 came out last week for god sake.

Yet they can still get a L4D2 review out?

GameTrailers score is 9.2, IGN UK is 8.8 and Gamespot's is 9.0, which gives us a pure 9.0 average.
Great notes and all, but I've expected it to be more. Batman: Arkham Asylum has an average of 92 while it was very short and not as entertaining as AC 1 to me.

I've been hearing all this about WW2 for AC3. About this i say definetly yes, however not yet. IMO from renaissance Italy to WW2 is a to big step. Now here's wat i've been thinking:

The early 1500's
The Fountain of Youth, located at the lake of the moon. A secret place in the New World(America) known only by the Aztecs. Spanish Templars hear about this and know it must be the work of some piece of eden. Together with the Conquistadore, the Templars travel to America to find this piece of eden. Ezio's son (or grandson) fully trained as an assassin by dad and/or grandad ezio. Hears about the new Templar movement and decides to go after them. The Aztecs know it all. These are their lands, their gods, their secrets.

Now this is just and idea for a next game to make the timejumps a little shorter. So how about it. A bit of Aztec magic, mixed with early spanish colonisation in a nice Caribbean Jungle scene! please comment!!
