That's what bugged me about the first game. You're this kick-ass assassin, yet you can't even tread in waist-high water.

lulz.

Those locations in the screenshots look freakin awesome though.

In all fairness, I wonder how many people in that era in that location learned how to swim. Still, I agree.

If you read the entire Game Informer article (which I linked to in the other thread :captnkill: ) it sounds like they paid a lot of attention to the complaints on the first game and sought to fix them all. The gameplay is misson structured like GTA, rather than the open investigations, which I kind of think I might miss, but... sounds good anyway.

As long as the game immerses you in 15th century Italy I am a happy man. The main reason the first game is one of my absolute favorites is because of its incredible immersion.

This is definitely a time period that hasn't been explored too much in this kind of game. Will keep watching out for this one.

Looks awesome. I liked the first one for a couple of hours but thats about it this one looks to diversify alittle more.

Looks good... hopefully it won't be extremely repetitive, glad the "uber assassin" can actually swim now... almost as bad as in the early Splinter Cell games where Sam Fisher couldn't swim... disgusting.

Those scans do look better than the 1st. Concepts are also very ambitious...I'm definitely getting this upon release.

Also I do love how everybody is so extremely excited about being able to swim... something that should have been present in the first game. But I can't say anything bad... because that is a good feature to have in a sequel.
