Assassin's Creed has a great story - WHAT?!

So i previously made a thread and you guys convinced me to get 2. But really? All you do is kill target after target. The only interesting part was basically the first 2 hours.

Anyone willing to enlighten me and tell me if the story is gonna get better? I am at the part where you need to kill Francesco De Pazzi.

Maybe i should have trusted my instincts and save for Syndicate.

    I mean Assassin's Creed 2, sorry.

    To elaborate on what I just said...

    The game basically follows this structure after the first 2 hrs.
    Get advice from your uncle > get weapons from Leonardo > get enemy whereabouts from X character > kill enemy

    Also, I heard you need to complete assassin tombs to continue the story? Is it true? If its true i might just delete the game because the tombs are so ridiculously difficult and the rewards are what? ~300 florins?

  • Bro, you made the right choice for playing AC2 instead of Syndicate, Syndicate has a terrible story, trust me. All AC sequels are terrible after AC4.

  • I heard that at least it was funny.

  • Funny gameplay, yeah but I heard it has such a bad ending.

  • I don't really mind if there is open world, good graphics and humour? I never really cared for the story unless its from Telltale. But AC2 is just a very terrible story after the first 2 hours.

  • Goddammit, AC2 is considered to be one of the best sequels in gaming history. You can't say it's a terrible story without even completing the whole goddamn game.

    But from what I've seen, the next ~3 hours or so are basicslly the same thing. ( i havent gone further.)

    So do you know if it will get better? Sorry if i sounded harsh, im just a little pissed rn.

  • I think you haven't even reached the chapter where you get to ride to Venice with Leonardo. If anything, AC1 is how you described about AC2.

    Except that Syndicate is one of the best AC games there is, much better than the first game, Revelations, III and on par with Black Flag, while also rivaling AC2 and Brotherhood.

    Old ≠ Better. This goes double for gaming.

  • Yet you can say that Syndicate is terrible without playing it?

    I heard it has such a bad ending.

    Meaning you didn't even play it. I replayed AC2 recently and can tell you that it suffers from a severe case of "overrated game that is only still liked so much because nostalgia". It's a great game, but that doesn't mean it's unbeatable.

    Pretty sure most said Black Flag in that thread tho.

  • Seriously get black flag instead. It still has the assassin parts in it but theres also very fun pirate ship battles thrown into the mix as well. It's one of the best pirate games out there if not the best one.

  • Assassin's Creed 2's ending is much like Bioshock Infinite's in regards to fan reaction. People either really liked it, or said "Well, now that was bullshit". Especially after the sequels failed to really do anything significant with that revelation. Ironic considering there was a sequel with that title(Revelations).

    I thought the ending and gameplay were fine(I really disliked Desmond and his friends though) on it's own. I have heard that even fans of the series admitted that the big hook to that story is now rubbish with how they decided to direct the series after it.

    Definitely the best game of the series. Coming from someone whom is no longer a fan, don't put too much stock in that.

  • None of the Assasain Creed stories have really been that great, the major benefactor to AC2's narrative was how charming and charismatic Ezio was as a protagonist and not much else.

  • (I really disliked Desmond and his friends though)

    But I love Shaun and Rebecca ;(

  • Hehe, but I searched it up the internet and saw it was a pirate game.

  • No after that there will be like 20x more assassinations. But those assassinations are fucking fun, a challenge with many undeliberate ways to kill the target, sometimes try doing it silently, its fun. As the game goes, you get more weapons and skills, and therefore, even more ways to combat. Definitely my most fun aspect of AC2 is the carnival later on in the story. Or the Bonfire DLC (which comes free with the game now lulululul). The game has a great story because it unravels the player in many different historical events all while giving a reason why you're doing this. It makes the player feel like he's making history.

  • And? It's still fun game to play.

    Hehe, but I searched it up the internet and saw it was a pirate game.

  • Thanks. I have killed off all the Pazzi and I'm in Venezia with Leornado Da Vinci now.

    Do you know what direction the story takes afterwards? Since its less than half the game and Ezio already got his revenge lol.

  • .....So?

  • Not really. The main base of a plot is Ezio hunting down the man who is behind the Templars. What is covered is lots of subplots you're going through. Its just one assassination after the other, don't know how fun you will find that but Venice is a great city that is a beauty to explore so maybe you'll enjoy it.

    By the way, it is not essential to do the tombs (I don't know what you're talking about by saying they're hard, they're easy as fuck) but it is essential to collect all the codex pages so just slowly do that as you progress through the game so it wont frustrate you as much.

  • I think you should have picked up Black Flag instead. Awesome pirate story (also can't wait for skull and bones from Ubisoft ). As for AC2 not being fun because of "assassination after assassination" I have to say all AC games are structured like that. After all, assassinations are the main premise of the series.

  • I see. I don't mind that as long as there is story and motivation behind it.

    Unlike the - he is templar, i must kill motivation in AC2.

  • Syndicate is an easy peasy game with zero to no plot that is simple enough to enjoy the game, but not really love. The game is less funny and more corny, even though there are some fun bits. I would recommend either 3 or 4. Brotherhood is pretty much the same as 2 in terms of its structure of missions and gameplay and it does not sound like you enjoyed it.

  • 10, its the cheesiest shit you'll ever see

  • That's the reason it's so good, though. It's pretty far removed from the Assassins vs Templar storyline, but that's honestly a plus in my book.

    Hehe, but I searched it up the internet and saw it was a pirate game.

  • It had a good story once.

    Then it caught Call of Duty syndrome and the rest is history.

  • Haha, thanks. Thats the deal sealer for me. Im getting Syndicate.
