Assassin's Creed II: Discovery Review

 

Assassin's Creed II: Discovery for the Nintendo DS is one of those pleasant surprises that manage to capture the spirit of the Assassin's Creed series

An impressive game true to the series, Assassin's Creed II: Discovery is actually an entertaining title that makes the best companion to the console version. That said, the game is far from perfect but it's easy to look past the flaws when the game is...

Assassin’s Creed II: Discovery

 

I didn't expect Assassin's Creed II: Discovery to be anywhere near as deep as it was. Sure, it's a fairly basic side-scrolling action game, but the gameplay has quite a bit of depth considering the platform. All of the buttons are used, where players...

Good translation of the world's game mechanics to the handheld

What, that's it? Yeah, the story is unsatisfying. - Ties in loosely and generically to the main game but not in any way that is compelling - Lousy in-game navigation and map

It’s almost like UbiSoft simply wanted to have a tie-in videogame release for the main Assassin’s Creed II, rather than crafting a game that fully supports the whole franchise and overall story. It’s not a bad game, but it certainly isn’t as good as it...

Assassin's Creed II: Discovery

 

In spite of some nagging issues, this 2D platformer is fun to play and captures the spirit of the series.

Fantastic animations ; Good translation of series mechanics into 2D ; Fun mix of stealth, combat, and platforming

Final levels are tedious ; Minimap isn't very helpful ; The campaign is short, and the ending fizzles

The 2D side-scrolling action is great, but this game feels incomplete.

Assassin's Creed II: Discovery

 

Last year's Assassin's Creed: Altair's Chronicles and the newly released Assassin's Creed II: Discovery couldn't possibly be more different from one another. Both handheld titles offer separate plots and side-adventures featuring the main character...

Assassin’s Creed II: Discovery

 

Gameloft's 2007 DS title Assassins Creed: Altair's Chronicles was seen by many as a missed opportunity. A promising, ambitious 2D/3D hybrid, the mobile developers delivered a sloppy, short-lived experience which now sits much more comfortably in the...

To be fair though, Assassins Creed II: Discovery is a polished title, with full voice acting and fantastic graphics throughout, befitting of a premier franchise. If its main strength is acknowledging its weaknesses and discarding them, it can yet also...

Assassin's Creed II: Discovery (DS) review

 

It's almost like history repeating itself...

A forgettable story and untidy presentation combine with enjoyable gameplay and a short-lived adventure.

NICE

 

Interesting review. There is basically no chance in hell that I would get this even if I had a DS but still I like the review :)
