I too am much more a fan of Ezio than I was of Altaiir (THERE I SAID IT) so more Ezio with some decent multiplayer puts this in the "gonna buy eventually" column.

If AC:B indeed includes enough of the good as mitigation for the crap hanging around from it's predecessor, it should still be a good time.

I don't think I could have imagined Yahtzee liking a multi-player aspect of a game. Although it makes sense that combining stealth (done well) and not having to rely on other people would be the first.
It seems disappointing that it takes place in one city, but at least that solves the Assassin's Creed 1 problem of how dull it was to get around.

Even if it is just an extension of Ass Creed 2, I'll take any excuse to faf about with 'ol Niccolo: Disregard Morals, Acquire Power!
And it's still a good game, which is nice.

I always did see a similarity between Yahtzee and Assassin's Creed's Shawn.
I though he WAS Assassin's Creed's Shawn

ah I personally liked the whole calling down your lil minions to do your killing. I used to run into soldier heavy areas and sent down all my minions to fight while I just stood on a ledge and watched them duke it out. Sending the occasional arrow into a soldier that is whaling on one of my protoge's

It would seems that Ubisoft's been paying attention to this particular reviewer and in order to please him put him in the game...

Im not a fan of AC.
If it was about the assassin himself actually set in the time its set in rather than the future and that memory bull (*GASP), I might be inclined to like the serise abit more.

Hmm... I would be looking forward to this when comes out on PC if my new laptop wasn't using an Intel graphics chip. Fuck.

Oh well...
from what I remember of the Assassin's Creed 2, every time the angry-snarky British guy opened his mouth, I kept thinking "Yahtzee Parody Alert! Yahtzee Parody Alert!"

There is an extensive list of examples, compare them to your attempt to see where you went wrong.

I really expected Fable III by now... but I guess you had your share of Fable by now.
Still, a nice review of the newest Assassin's Creed. I can hardly wait to get my hands on it.

Yahtzee likes the snarky british member of the merry band of killers? Who woulda thought?

Anyways, was disappointed a little by AC:B, but overall I thought it was a good game. Just hope they change it up for AC3, specially since what happened at the end of Brotherhood.

All he needs is the hat (and maybe to swear just a little more.)

Ok I loved the part at the end in the closing title "Historians now believe he was gay". I can't think of many historical figures that some historian hasn't claimed was gay like they got some gay quote to fill or something.

Calling my Assassins was a good way to get those guys that can see you that might fuck up a mission

This was more focused and had a higher criticism-to-humor ratio than recently. Neat.

For some reason I found the human gradually transforming into an imp hilarious.
