Just was thinking of a few things that would totally ruin AC2 and was wondering what people thought were the worst. Feel free to elaborate, especially if you choose 'Other'.

NOTE: Some of the options are rumored to be included and others I came up with spontaneously.

your poll options are messed up, the flags and collections items with have a reason in game and unlock things, the game isnt going to have a solid ending as the game is a three parter. they have said you will have more freedom to pick and choose your targets instead of the game being a straight line, noteriety system and the street doctors all add to the game play and can only improove it.

I went with the can't pick your time of assassination.I didn't see the too repetitive one :P,I would have picked that.Also,I would hate if they put a love story.I know Ezio would be a hit with the ladies,but he's an assassin!There more lone-wolves-y(except when working with other assassins).

I would not mind most of the things there, I fail to see how they are bad (Flags? A totally optional task). A love story would be fine by me as long as it is properly fleshed out and made to be gripping.

The idea that assassins are lone wolves makes the idea of a love story more dangerous.Like can she be trusted, or the balance between assassin and lover.

If it ends up being repetitive again somehow and/or a love story. I really like how the first one didn't have romance. I hate when games,books, tv shows...etc add uneeded romance into things. Which is why I avoid fanfiction.net, all there is is cliche romances.

@caswallawn: I know that the Flags/ Collections unlock stuff for XBOX and PS3 and I've read why they are in the game and I don't have anything much against them, but I know other people do, so that's why I included it. Additionally, I was a fan of the way AC1 ended and would not mind in the least if AC2 had a similar ending, but again, I know some people did not enjoy it.

they arnt just going to unlock achievments they have said they will unlock upgrades and other things for ezio giving an actual in game reward for collecting them giving them reason.

@caswallawn: That sounds well and good, and like I said I have nothing against it, but even if it gives in game upgrades, some people just do not like that they are forced to collect items. It is not my favorite feature, but the upgrades should make it worth it.

Out of all of those things I'd have to say a "Love Story" *shivers*
I noticed the inconclusive ending got a lot of votes. I actually kind of like that and it has even been mentioned that the second game is going to leave you with more questions than answers.
Guess we wont get the whole picture till AC3 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blush.gif

Same here. I love it when every once in a while, a game, movie, or book gives an ending like this. It's a bit obvious that what questions are left will eventually be answered. Plus having nice endings are so boring!

Also when I herd a while back that Altair's Chronicles* had that chick, what was her name, Adha? In it, I was really hoping she wouldn't be some eventual love interest.


*This was before I realized Altair's Chronicles was non-canon.

frankly i liked the ending. it had a lot of things that made people think, even if the blood drawings didnt matter they were interesting. i especially liked the emails and all in all i liked the ending of AC

i chose other because in my opinion RPG elements would absolutely ruin AC and its formula. even if they didnt screw up the fighting elements, RPG is just a bad way to go for AC (i think)

No coop would ruin the game. AC1 is just too damn boring after beating it. I can only go around killing people and jumping from rooftop to rooftop so much before I get bored. Playing the game through a second time is still boring with all the little mini missions you have to go through before you can assasinate your target. Coop would at least make the game more interesting as you would then have a friend fighting along side you through your game. Plus with the Da Vinchi wings they are going to have, that would just be cool to get to glide around with a friend. Even having races would be fun to do.

It was complicated, but you didn't have to perfect the combo kills or the dodges to be good at it.

And I remember a few kids at the old Brotherhood fan site who saw the first demo and complained that you could only attack one enemy at a time.

But now, judging by the screen shot of Ezio swinging the lance thing and three or four guys all falling backwards at the same time to avoid it, I have a feeling it will be more complicated. Fighting with your bare hands, taking weapons, throwing dirt in their eyes, and maybe even attacking multiple enemies? I like.

I can't wait to see all the moves up Ezio's classy sleeves, aside from two hidden blades.

What would ruin AC2?

Probably if instead of playing as Enzio you play as a giant walrus and you use your tusks to open cans of peaches for the towns people of mars. And near the end you find out that it all took place inside a snow globe held by Gary Busey. Yea, that'd pretty much ruin it.

Well actually 5 games would be a saga not a trilogy.
But it was confirmed that Assassin's Creed would be a trilogy, which means three games.

Assassin's Creed was my first PS3 game, I played the first 3 assassinations and abandoned it cause I was too lazy to investigate for info. Now I just beat it in two days and, well, it was repetetive, although fun and the fact of re-appearances of every grit of the game never made it boring, anyway. So I've just gotton into the storyline today, and, well, I had no clue what was going on during the long cutscenes. Every time I've played the game I've never noticed Altair's finger missing, or his lip scar.(Or so I've heard)

So I've known nothing during the game. Climb, see, do. Travel, listen, kill. Very repetetive, but stays oh so fun.

Hopefully I will be able to notice more about Ezio.

05-17-2009, 09:44 AM
Its just a shame I couldn't vote for more than one. I voted for too repetive because other ubi games such as Far Cry 2 and POP are repetive I just hope AC2 breaks the trend.

A while back somebody linked to some site with news saying that Ubisoft had reserved the domains of "www.assassinscreed.com" right up to number five, so...

It was also mentioned that many companies do it as a little safety feature in case they decide to milk the franchise, as many a developer loves to do.

Those two sentences sound wrong, and for absolutely no reason... blahblah

they also tend to pick up domains that are similar to stop people making fake sites off similar domains, a lot of popular sites if you get one letter wrong you will either get a spam site or a site that may try to infect your PC.

For me a love story is unwanted and unnecessary. Altair was hell bent on regaining his honour during AC which meant that he had no time for love or even to consider it. Ezio was betrayed and is fighting for revenge, perhaps because someone he loved was killed. I would be fine with a story driven by a revenge of a lost loved one, but I don’t think we really need to watch a cut-scene where Ezio gets all teary eyed for some chick. For me that would kind of ruin the franchises credibility weakening the character indefinitely. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/clap.gif

I just got the new OXM Mag today and they have an article on ASC 2.

My favorite part is , "Part of what should help build in more variety is the new faction system. Blending in with crowds was certainly a pretty big selling point of the original game, but now you don't have to keep an eye peeled for groups of monks-you can mingle with any distinct pack of NPC's. Or you can find a friend. For example, if you get, um, cozy with the courtesans, you'll be able to ask them to put on a show and seduce a group of guards while you sneak past. Or if you work your way into the thieves' guild, they will trust you and teach you their knowledge of the city and your targets. You will be able to use them to fight alongside you, or to go steal from guards and lure them away from their spot."

just to clarify, it wouldnt be a "flying level" but a "flying mission".
One of the majors attributes that sets AC1 aside from others is that it doesnt go level by level but rather treats you to a free world gameplay, so theoretically ( http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gifbad spelling sry)it's impossible to have a "flying level" but what im guessing is an assassination mission in where you'll have to utilize da vinci's flying machine to get to your target, Maybe you'll be gliding out to an unreachable boat at night, who knows... pretty much i dont see this game being ruined by a "flying level" or even a "flying mission"

I voted for love-story. Come on! Ezio, yeah, does like women but not that much. AC is an ACTION game,(okay, not really, I forgot how its genre really called xD) not another girlish stuff. As other peeps said (kudos to them), sparkling stuff - DO NOT WANT.

I don't really think a love story would badly affect the game as much as repetition would. Yeah it really wouldn't tie in well at all. Hey, I'm not getting my hopes too high, but I really hope the game isn't as repetitive as the first one. I really enjoyed the original Assassin's Creed but sometimes I got bored because you do the same thing over and over. I can't judge by what I saw in the new E3 demo so I guess I'll just have to see when people start posting vids of more gameplay.

Too complicated controls! and the movement of Ezio should also be as good as Altaïr's was. Also the healing prosses. I hope you don't need a doctor too much in this game. As for the love story I really hope that there would be some sort of love story involved.

Um.. sometimes it's necessary to attack guards if you want to be able to escape, but if you're good enough you can figure out a way to get out of there unharmed without having to go through any combat after you take out your assassination target. That doesn't make Ezio a mass murderer. It just means you're slow. >.<

Saying "if they put in a love story" would ruin the game is stupid. If it's not forced, contributes well to the game and is well done, why not include it?
The problem is that games make it hard for you to truly connect to the characters. Like Prince of Persia; I personally wouldn't have done what the Prince did at the end of the game, simply because I didn't share his point of view.

There's games where it works and there's games where it doesn't work. It's as simple as that.

And I believe that in Assassin's Creed it would end up just being too cliché... Ubisoft have kept the first game pretty unromantic which I am thankful for. They knew they were taking a big risk, letting a bunch of guys run around the medieval era with swords and stuff since people were very likely to mistake it for a fantasy game, which it wasn't. So they kept it dark and sober. Lucid.

It's about assassins. You assassinate people and uncover a conspiracy. Cool.

Now imagine: you assassinate people... but your foes have taken hostage your tender one and only true love! :O And now you gotta rescue the damsel in distress that all the younger fangirls will secretely dream they are!

Assassins creed !! to end in cliffhanger
http://xbox.joystiq.com/

"I'm telling you. At the end of AC2 you'll say‚ 'Holy crap, I never saw it coming.'"

That's according to Assassin's Creed II creative director, Patrice Désilets. In addition to saying "Holy crap," you should also prepare yourself to exclaim, "But what happens next?!" Désilets noted that his first Ubisoft sequel will answer plenty of questions -- but not all of them.

"There will be a cliffhanger," he admitted. "It's cool to have a cliffhanger." The director feels that players need to experience just a little bit of frustration at the game's completion, though a new way to replay completed missions should counter at least some of that. Oh, and remember that glowing writing on the wall?

"It has nothing to do with Assassin's Creed II, what's written on the wall has to do with the Assassin's Creed universe, not the second one."

I love the game, but UBI is the worst with it's fan base and relaying information to it's bread and butter.

first off thanks for changing what i said


and to clarify

the controls could become slightly more complicated without ruinging the gameplay, the movemen shouldnt be the same as altairs but better and more accurate which will prolly require more complicated controls, the healing process can be moved along 'faster" with a street doctor, and a love story would more than ruin the game, maybe somethign only as far as courtly love but not an inch further, i beileve im wih 99% of the people when i say a love story here would suck

tl/dr all of it

I'd ADORE a love story BUT it would have to be a choice to participate in and not a straight forward one-path aspect to the storyline and game. Kinda like the way bio-ware does it in their RPGs (the option portion) but better executed and more believable. I know this would make the canon vs non-canon difficult and complicate the game further (possibly unnecessarily) but I feel that it would be a more submersive (is that the right word?) story that way.

am i crazy?

I'm tossing up between love story and street doctors. I voted lov story though, because it's the least likely to be workable in-game. There was a vague reference to a love interest for Altair in the first game, I don't think they can get away with much more than that without killing it as an AC game.

Ezio is an Assassin and no mass murderer. I think that the people who want to kill all the guards should look for another game. The fights in AC1 were already far too easy.

They should focus on the social stealth system na dnot on the fights. It looks cool when Ezio is disarming an opponent.

It looks like fights against one, two, and maybe three guards at once are probably as easy or easier than AC1. If the AI is as capable as they're making it sound, we may find that numbers make a noticable difference. All they've shown us so far is that the demo playing people ran when confronted with large numbers of guards.

I'm wondering if it'd be possible in the E3 demo, to use that smoke bomb earlier in the mission to distract the first batch of guards, then charge in and assassinate the target. Finish the guards AFTER killing him, and be ready with your halberd when the next wave come in. Take one or two down to make a path, then escape while being pursued.

Indeed, Ezio is an assassin. And hahaha, do you realize what you're saying? "Okay, in this game you can kill all the guards. But people who want to do that, should look for another game". What? WHAT?

Why does he look like a mass murderer? Because he took down guards that were on his way and would have seriously hindered his escape? That's the problem.. you seem to think it'd be any realistic if he just waltzed past the guards, asking them how their day was and then assassinated his target and took a nap?

They should focus on the fights more, as that's what being as assassin is obviously about - being a fighter. Social stealth is still important, of course, but there's not much they can do with it. And yes, if you were an assassin in times where you couldn't kill a target from 1 km away with a sniper rifle and wanted to stay alive.. you needed to be one god damn good fighter.

Again.. it's your choice if you want to play him like a mass murderer. You can take the stealthiest approach.

Lastly, the E3 demo is not an actual mission in the game.

I don't think a love story would ruin the game. I actually think it would make it better. ONLY if it was for the start of the game. If it was for the whole game, then it'd ruin it. But, if it was only while Ezio is starting off as an Assassin, then his Girlfriend gets killed, I think this would make the game better because then Ezio will be wanting more revenge and it'll give players a want to kill the baddies. Heheh.

I like playing with stealth but I don't like killing the Guards much cause they're innocent. I'll just quietly, without anybody noticing, go to the assassination target and kill him. Then run away lol.

The flag system was nice but a bit ill-conceived: you could not remember were a flag was and if you left one back you had to search the whole area again and again.
I think that a "Briefcase" system like the one in Far Cry 2 is a better choice: not only you must be very close to the Briefcase/Flag for the radar to find it(the search is not spoiled at all) but you will have a mark on the map after finding it.
I also think that the idea of using a doctor is very nice but only when you are seriously injured: close to death(1/2 fragment left of the life bar).

The one thing that bugged me the most in the first game were the endless cutscenes that couldn't be skipped. After completing the game you were forced to watch the whole cutscene at the beginning of every memoryblock before you could actually play the game. Though I still enjoy playing the game after completing the story, I find the cutscenes to be such a nuisance that I just turn of my computer before actually playing the game!
It just takes for ever to get started...

the memory block part is very annoying because usually i go on just for fun to kill guards and stuff so i go straight to memory block 6 but the I have to listen to Al Mualim's **** about Robert de Sable and it gets annoying A LOT so i hope they keep that out.

Gondola animations not being entirely realistic.

...Oh wait.


On a more serious note, an inconclusive ending wouldn't ruin the game for me, I mean, it's the ending, and I plan on reaching the end only after I fully completed the game, so it'd be too late.
And do I need to mention there will be a sequel, hence the chance for an inconclusive ending is pretty big?

However, not being able to freely plan the way you assassinate your target would kind of ruin it for me. Ruin isn't exactly the best word as I will love the game nonetheless. I also wouldn't mind if some of the assassinations were slightly scripted if it would improve gameplay / story.
Luckily as far as the general public has been informed, we'll have a lot of freedom with the assassinations.

EDIT: No, I really don't mind the gondola animations that much.

That's the opposite of your all-caps post then, which doesn't look pretty sweet at all.

You're right, but then again... AC2 is also recieving a lot of premature praise, so why not premature complaints? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

What would **** me off is if there is only ONE flying level.

If there's one thing I hate, it's when developers try to over-deliver on variety for their games, and end up throwing a bunch of useless variety in that can only be enjoyed once, MAYBE twice throughout the game, and fails to present itself as a key design element, and rather as a stupid gimmick.

The flying sequence looks fun, but I sure hope it's not used just once.

What good is a game's variety if it's empty?

well apparently they made so it's harder to go anywhere but the main entrance...or somthin like that and so most likely will fight some guards. i'm looking forward to guards and all that cause it will make killing the target that much harder(if the guards AI is good) cause in number one it was waaaaaay too easy to get to most of your targets without even fighting one guard untill maybe after you've killed him and then all you need to do is run for 5-10(...and beyond like happened to me sometimes cause i was having a bad day) and so for made it waaaay to easy

Wait, what? You just whined that Ezio is like a mass murderer. But now you're just whining that mass murdering should be harder?

If you don't have enough self-control not to kill all the guards, then it's YOU that is making Ezio a mass murderer.

ah but that's the good thing about the game...you dont have to kill all 5 guards, you can go around stealthily(you know what i mean) it's up to you. my way of doing it is the more guards i kill the betterhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif i dont really care for the stalth thing but i love the game by the way how you can choose how to play it and you are not forced.http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

You just don't get it, do you?

Ezio is an Assassin and no mass murderer. I think that the people who want to kill all the guards should look for another game. The fights in AC1 were already far too easy.

And yes im "whining" that mass murder should be harder because Ezio looks like a mass murder for me at the moment. What's the problem?

They should focus on the social stealth system na dnot on the fights. It looks cool when Ezio is disarming an opponent. But Patrice Desilets said they want to make Ezio more like an assassin, because Altair was too much of a warrior. It's really assassin like to take a halberd from a guard and kill 5 others with it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

You should be forced to use the social stealth system or to run away from the guards. But it looks like the fights are easier than in ac1. So you're even less forced to avoid the guards. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

In an interview it was said that the flying machine (glider) will be used more than once.

I'm really disapointed about the fact that when you get hurt you have to find a street doctor. I can't count how many times in AC1 I've jumped off a building (expecting a ledge to grab) and fell, however I would be fine in a minute (unrealistic, but agreeable).

Point is, I don't want to mess up doing stupid stuff, get hurt, and have to limp around trying to find a potentially far away street doctor.

That was my biggest concern as well- not how the health system would apply to combat, but through mistakes.

A cheesy romance plot would ruin the game for me. D| I always get irritated when a game throws romance into the mix; it's oftentimes so forced, the game would have been better to just not have included it in the first place.
