The story is great but really... connor uses a tomahawk... the patriot much! ?!?
It's the most overrated franchise of the generation alongside Gears Of War.
It's not a bad game as itself, I just hate to hear that it has a good story or interesting characters. The main storyline is probably the most idiotic thing I've seen in any videogame, and I hate to see something this stupid taken seriously. Over that, the gameplay is bland. The historic research is done well for a videogame but still very overrated. Sometimes it simply feels to have some Wikipedia article stick to the game randomly.
And being an italian, I found terribly annoying the language spoken in Assassin's Creed II, half english and half "italian". Just plain stupid. I've never played any game after II so I don't know if that's changed.
I'm probably going to buy the Ezio Trilogy out of curiosity anyway, when the price is good, and maybe in two years I'll give ACIII a chance.
You don't have to take the story seriouslly to like it, but it is really interesting.
Oh c'mon they take randomly a bunch of stuff like Gods, 2012, and other things I don't remember. I possibly can't take the story seriously, but that wasn't what I meant.
The thing that itches me is that the story itself takes itself too seriously. The game is like "Whoa dude my story it's so awesome never heard anything like this before did you?" and that annoys me. It's original in an incredibly forced way
