Played some Assassin’s Creed II last night and today. My style of playing continues to be “run around buildings until I fall near something plot relevant.” And it’s so much fun. I’m probably only half way through it, but I’ve already played for upwards of 7 enjoyable hours.
What I’m liking a lot is the search for “the truth” which is represented by glyphs on buildings that lead to puzzles that have to be deciphered. The title of this entry is a the transcription of a message in Morse code I found in a picture of Gandhi from one such puzzle. Creepy…. But cool.
Also fun? The “search for Assassin’s statues” parts, where I run around really big buildings with few (if any) enemies and go through really big architecture puzzles.
So, yeah, I’m quite enjoying the game.
