Hey Ubisoft.

Enjoying AC2 at the momment, loving the game so far.

But, If you will ever make an AC3, the Free-Running/parkour has major potential.

This is just my opinion; But Ezio's free-running/parkour in AC2 seems very limited and un-inspired.
Dont get wrong, you have done a good job, but in order to exell, Ezio's movement needs more grace and style. I want to see more passion in his running!

The combat and climbing in AC2. Looks really well. Feels great, flows well and Ezio shows passion in the art of war.

But wouldnt it be cool if you gave the next AC3-main character a crash course in some more advanced parkour stuff?

Like, if he could do "Vaults" for an example. Like in this short video;

You have all the means and resources to make a kick *** game, so to me if you have this in mind for a third game, it would simply be awsome!

But hey! AC2. Loving it!

Others have opinions about this?

cheers

I think the free-running is pretty good.. my only complaint is that the routes you can take all are somewhat pre-ordained. More Linearkor than Parkour.

Yes, the free running events are somewhat linear, but there's only so much you can do. Vaults would be an awesome addition, so let's see if Ubi adds it or not.

its impractical though, you would only be able to do most of them in certain places, because your limited on collision there would have to be hundreds more animation (not joking you have to factor int the transaction) from what i can tell ubisoft won't do anything like this in the near future, but if they allowed AC2 to be moddable then yes this is very possible that you could be looking at something like this, but i dont think we will see this from ubisoft

they could also add wall running along with wall climbing like if you ran up a slope in the wall you run along it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I agree with Darkstar6545.
It seems natural that "Desmond" could also
take a couple of steps running along the wall as well.

So what if it's looking a bit like prince of persia then, it would still be useful and looking awsome.

I really hope that Ubisoft checks some of this threads and pays attention to what we say about the parkour.
They have huge potential to make it come together really nice!
