I have been playing the crap out of Assassin’s Creed II the last few days. I’ve had the game pretty much since it came out 2009 but I never played more than about 20 minutes of it (mostly because it was too much Desmond nonsense. Man that dude is boring).
The last few weeks though, the boyfriend has been playing Brotherhood and now Revelations while we chat on Skype and I have to admit, it’s sounded pretty fun. I enjoyed the first Assassin’s creed quite a bit so I finally took the plunge into Assassin’s Creed II last weekend.
Seriously guys, it’s so much fun! What took me so long to jump on this bandwagon? I can’t even put my finger on what makes the game so great. Ok, yes I can. One big part of the awesomeness is this guy:
Oh, Ezio. You’re such a flirt and an interesting character. We grow up with you, learn your skills as you do, see what makes you you. And, for a video game character, you’re pretty easy on the eyes. Compared to Altair & Desmond, you’re basically the most complex person in the world. I don’t know what made Ubisoft decide to actually have some character development for this game, but god damn I’m really happy they did.
The other AWESOME thing about Assassin’s Creed II as opposed to the first one, are the really cheesy Italian accents. I’m talking, Super Mario Bros cheesy here. In fact, when you meet Ezio’s uncle Mario the first thing he says is “It’s a-me, Mario” and I was all, fuck yeah, it’s a-you.
Seriously though, he’s great. And this game has lead to all of my friends constantly talking in really bad (and probably slightly racist) Italian accents. For whatever reason, that particular stereotypical accent DELIGHTS me. I now talk about “stabbing people inna da face” all the time. I can’t wait to finish this one so I can pick up the next bajillion games that feature Ezio. Even if you didn’t like the first Assassin’s Creed, there’s a good chance you’ll dig this one. CHECK IT OUT, FRIENDS.
