I honestly didn't have hardly any problem with the repetition. I played in 1 hour chunks and when I can back to the same mission types I wasn't really fussed, because they were in a different part of the city and I just run away for fun and maybe fight.

Things I didn't really like were the outside the cities, then there were too many hiding spots in cities. I also felt combat was kinda poor to start with and got good about 2/3rds of the way through.

Loved the first game, very atmospheric and great fun to play, can't wait for the sequel. I heard a rumour that it would be set in Venice, though Japan would be a good setting too.

Yeah, repitition was not really my problem with it... most games seem to pick a certain kind of gameplay and repeat it over the course of the game. If Assassin's Creed is too repetitive then so is Empire Total War or FEAR or almost any game that is not an RPG (and even some of them).

My main problem with the game was that once you got the counter-attack move combat was basically non-existant. The same game, in a new place and time, with a much better combat system would be a total winner for me.

- Boss, we don't have anything to show but need to build hype for the game.
- Throw together a teaser video showing a scrolling tapestry, the fans will love it and not claw their eyes out for loosing one minute of their lives watching crap.

The problem with the repetition in AC was it was so boring getting intel... sit on a bench and listen in on a conversation... so freaking annoying. You literally sat on a bench and did nothing for like 5 minutes.

I admit it did get repetitive, but it didn't really bother me. I could play the game at my pace and not be first into doing stuff for the most part which is something I really like in games. I also like have side quests like finding all of the flags. Its one of those games I can actually play and relax instead of getting frustrated.

Found buried in the official site's files, supposedly:



And this from the new Game Informer:



Quote:
In Assassin’s Creed 2, players take on the role of Ezio, a young noble whose family was lost through rival ruling families' betrayals. In addition to the new character, players are going to get to explore a new setting: Renaissance-era Venice. What else is going on? Well, you’re going to have to pick up the May issue of Game Informer if you want the complete story on Ubisoft’s latest.
