    As much as I love the first Assassin's Creed, I just can not go through the whole game again after playing the second one, which is why I always tell anybody wanting to skip it to play AC1 first or never. And I want to play Brotherhood! I'm tired of running into spoilers whenever the topic of Revelations comes up

    I definitely agree with you about the monotony comment with the first. I think they improved upon it a great deal in the sequels.

    wouw ive actualy read the whole thing ^^
    glad u enjoyed ac2, caus i certainly did to.

    ACB is also a great game, though i found some -points.
    (SPOILER) the first thing is the map.. it looks awesome but i really enjoyed the exploring in the previous games, including the traveling between maps.

    in AC2 i thought: 'wouldt it be cool if i could ride the horse in town!? ' .. .. .. No, its not cool. it ruins the game becaus when u think 'jeez im tired of climbing' u wistle to yr horse and just runn of -.-
    .. . the temptation to make it yrself easyer is always to big. and since there are no consequenses when u run ppl over it just spoiles the fun of it.

    and in my opionion the biggest spoiler of the game is the actual brotherhood. when u have that, all the fun is ruined.
    it just makes it to easy to go to a 'boss' whistle your brotherhood and sit back and relax. Ive tried not to use it at all, becaus i want some challenge but unfortunatly sometimes u just have to.
    and once again, using the brotherhood has no consequenses for Ezio, and so ruins the challence and fun of it

    if i were to replay one of these games it wouuld without a doubt be AC2. to me that one is the most perfect balances of the 3 games..
    Now just have to wait for Revelations ^^

    It was not fully explored i feel...They could have added a much bigger variety of aspects to the gameplay like in the sequels.. Plus its annoying that everyone speaks in a middle eastern accent while Altair speaks in a very american accent :/ Sorta ruins it a little! But atm....Brotherhood is the game for me! Its come a looooooong way from AC1 xD

    Just in time to be caught up for when Revelations is released!

    The three-part comic series that came out around Brotherhood's release is based around that period in Russia. The writer's let on that a game for Nikolai, the comic's assassin, isn't out of the question for them. I think it would be awesome to play a part in the Tunguska event. If you're a story man, you should check out the comics, they're called The Fall iirc. The story is really, really interesting.

    I'm glad to hear you enjoyed AC1. A lot of people I've talked to about it quit playing once the gameplay reveals itself to be repetitive, and that's just sad to me. It's such an incredible game. Despite the later entries having better gameplay, AC1 is my favorite simply for its story. And Altair is such a badass. You definitely won't be let down with 2 or Brotherhood though. The gameplay never gets boring, or feels repetitive, and the story just keeps getting better and better.

    And if you're down for even more ACness, you should check out Assassin's Creed: Lineage, a three-part movie Spike played a bit before 2 was released to hype the game up/advertise, and to shed some light on the conspiracy backstory involving Ezio's dad.

    I've already started on AC2 and I'm quite amazed at how much they overhauled the game (for the better) compared o the original. Makes me feel bad for Altair cause he'll probablt never get as much love as Ezio, seeing how he's working on his third console game and Altair only has his crappy original title and two handheld titles the main games mostly ignore.

    Cliffhangar endings don't bother me as much but had I played AC1 back when it came out without knowing their was a sequel, I'd be a little annoyed cause I can understand why the game got mixed reviews, so I wouldn't know if the story would ever be resolved.

    Part of me is hoping that a future installment in the series will be set in Russia between WWI and the Russian Civil War(basically 1910-1930). I'm happy to know the team will be avoiding WWII, so maybe a little Russian history would be nice. I want to see Rasputin, and then try to kill him a dozen times before he goes down.

    But yeah as people said, AC2 is a lot better than AC1, and Brotherhood is a (slight) improvement on 2.

    In AC2 they replaced the beggars with even more annoying bards as a little prank, but you can throw a small amount of florins to distract NPCs. Now what's REALLY fun, is if you find some guard with a huge ass weapon like a hammer or a spear, use the poison on him undetected, and throw money at him. The poison will cause him to go berserk until he dies, flailing his weapon around wildly, and all of the NPCs will mob him to get the money you threw. By the time he's dead, the street will be filled with like sixty peasants rolling around the floor in pain (innocents don't usually outright die).

    Combat in AC2 is even more broken, but the wide variety of weapons makes it more fun. If you didn't like the cliffhanger at the end of AC1, you're probably not going to be too happy with the wtf ending of AC2. I want to play Brotherhood so I can see what's up with that

    U got off yr ass? when im playing games i usually get On my ass xD

    i liked AC1 too though it was a little to long for my feeling, and way to much repeating
    and i have to agree when u said: 'once altair learns counter atack he pretty much becomes invinseble' it also takes away the challenge a bit becaus if u want u can just wait for 1 of them to atack, and do a counter attack.

    and yes... the beggars are reaallyy anoying :O

    In my opinion AC2 is the best (so far). to me that one was totaly balanced

    Congrats on finally playing it. Now play the infinitely better sequels and you will truly understand how awesome it is.

    I can't say I'd be of any use, which is unfortunate because I'd be happy to help you out! I think there are only a few people who can read 日本語 on EoFF too
