I have a couple of hours worth of the game, so I can not properly critique the game aside from stating that it holds true to the traditional game mechanics and controls with some exciting new elements added all taking place within the vast and beautiful city of Rome. It has a decently intriguing story with a well written dialogue. I felt more of an addictive sense of urgency from the ACII story line that kept me really hooked, although Brotherhood is good, I can easily put it down. At least for now, maybe the excitement will build? The game thus far presents the feeling of being a massive add on to its predecessor rather then being a full fledged sequel, which was expected by most, I believe.
I have only played one round of multiplayer, so I'll reserve my judgment. I do look forward to exploring it more. However, I do dislike that you can't have a friend playing on the same console, though it makes sense considering the stealthy game play, it's still a bummer.
The primary focus of this review is regarding the contents of the Collector's Edition. The Jack In The Box (Doctor) is made of hard and rubbery plastic. The paint job is very bland with no highlights or shading and lacks precision in some places. There is even a patch of noticeable clear glue on his face where it must have dripped down when they attached his hat. That's Chinese quality for you. Despite that, its not a horrible collectable (it has a simplistic charm) and it does pop up very quickly when you unlock it. The Art Book is very small, not even the size of an XBox game case. The pictures are gorgeous, however tiny, containing mostly landscapes and different groups of people, but not all of them.Read more ›
Now to the collectibles! The jack-in-the box was a really cool idea in concept, but Ubisoft cheaped out and used Chinese labour to build it. It smells like cheap plastic and it's just not what I was expecting--the paint job is not very detailed and it weighs a little more than the cardboard box it came in. The jack-in-the-box's poor build quality is making me not want to buy another collector's edition of any AC game in the future.Read more ›
Overall, this is one of the best games ever made.
I could nitpick at several minor things in the game's mechanics but they're hardly worth mentioning. For instance, the controls can get a little nuts at times when Ezio decides to run up a wall that you've come too close to, effectively stopping your forward motion and making controlling him a bit of a tussle on rare occasions. This control issue has been a part of the series since the beginning but truth be told, the controls here are the best so far and feel much more refined than they did from the original game.
The interface also needs some reworking, as I found accessing the database and maps to be slightly tedious, which tends to be a pain as you kind of need to work with them quite a bit.Read more ›
